Hotel Sorrento Review
Built in 1871, the Hotel Sorrento still commands a special place in town, and very funky interiors don't compromise its historic profile. The heritage rooms, with exposed limestone (from which the original hotel is built) are the best rooms, with huge windows framing views over Port Phillip Bay. Some have balconies and others have whirlpool baths. Every room and apartment has a new flat-screen TV with cable movies. Adjoining newer buildings house park-view rooms and apartments. The Limeburners Bar is a popular Sorrento meeting place, and the restaurant serves delicious, well-priced meals, such as pistachio-crusted trevally on Moroccan couscous with lemon herb yoghurt (A$26).
