    3Bedroom Apartment Sorrento.

    There were 6 people who were attending a Wedding at All Smiles Wedding venue last weekend. I booked Shells Apartments through Wotif. We found the location very handy being in the centre of the main shopping centre of Sorrento. The Apartment suited us for the weekend and the amenities were clean the bedrooms were set up for our needs. The Staff were only to happy to help if we needed anything. We would stay here again.

    Overall good but minor disappointments

    Good service, good size apartment and overall clean and tidy. Inside fridge and sponge provided was dirty which was a disappointment as well as damaged toilet seat. Also not keen on the terms & conditions of having to take out all trash when leaving otherwise incurring extra charges. Despite this, the apartment is in a great location.

    On Main Street and close to beach

    Terrible parking conditions. I struggled to park my Toyota Hilux in the car park allocated area. I was told there were three available spaces but they do not have the capacity for any more than 4 big vehicles. Then to receive an abusive msg left on my vehicle from someone anonymous as they struggled to get their mini bus and FWD’s past my vehicle was enough for me to factor this all in when planning my next overnight stay. Rooms were clean but door frames are rotting away. Beds were really uncomfortable. To top it off I could here the gentleman nextdoor snoring at 2:30 in the morning.

    Central location

    A perfect spot to enjoy all that Sorrento has to offer. The apartment was comfortable and well laid out and the undercover parking behind the apartments was very convenient.

    Great location but that is it!

    This apartment is in great location but for the price we paid we where very disappointed. Very unclean and tired looking property. Oven was the cleanest thing in the place as it looked like it hadn't been used. Needs a good renovation
