Annually we do a car rally for our employees with a secret destination overnight. Whitehall accommodated all 26 of us and there was still plenty of rooms not occupied. A commercial kitchen where we had a team Masterchef Challenge was fantastic and fully equipped. Huge living, dining room,and undercover deck area. Whitehall is a little tired, however everyone enjoyed themselves... More

Whitehall Guesthouse is a great old place near the back beach at Sorrento. It is a little old and tired but she is a grand old lady that is clean, comfortable and very conveniently located and a good price for Sorrento. We didn't have any trouble with noise or loud people. There are shared bathrooms but they are clean and... More

I appreciate some of the negative comments below but in fairness to Whitehall...you know up front what to expect. Yes it's shared bathrooms. Yes the continental breakfast is average but it IS included. No you can't open all windows nor is there AC in every room (ask for AC in summer). But what you do get for around $150 on... More

Drunken hostile, random people walking around loud and sharing bathrooms is ridiculous. Are room had four walls and a bed and dirty carpet. Needs some serious attention. I will never go back there. If you are 25 on a budget with friends OK, otherwise beware. Good: Close to Sorrento town and beaches.

Our room was quite spacious with a decent bathroom. The hotel is close to Sorrento back beach, shops and restaurants. If your primary objective is to hang out at the back beach then this place is ideal. We had a decent stay, but there are better value places nearby.

Not your typical Sorrento accommodation but a unique surprise. This is an old guesthouse complete with creaking floorboards and large common rooms for dining and lounging as well as a huge balcony with comfy chairs and just a tiny view of the back beach. It's simple and unpretentious. Our room had an ensuite and every amenity you would expect...big soft... More

It was pleasant enough the place needs renovating. The place is quite rundown but has a lovely facade about it. It is close to all amenities, beach and shopping. The beach is walking distance from Whitehall which is nice if you like to take a casual stroll to the foreshore.

We had a room with an ensuite and for the price expected a bit more finesse. The hotel appears to cater mostly for budget traveller with lots of little rooms and shared bathrooms. The upper priced rooms are not in line with what you expect these days- clean but need a revamp. TV stand had tea cup stains on it.... More

This is our second visit to Sorrento with a group of 10. Whitehall is great, low cost accommodation less than a five minute walk into the heart of Sorrento! Don't let the shared bathroom facilities put you off - they are large and clean, but you'll have to be quick if you want hot water!! The breakfast is simple but... More
