“Unexpectedly Lovely”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

I'd booked this bed and breakfast so I had somewhere to stay during a recent business trip. To be honest I wasn't expecting or needing anything much, but I was very impressed with the entire experience.

The house is gorgeous with well-maintained with relaxing gardens and courtyards. I had the entire upstairs floor to myself including a kitchenette, large TV, lounge, balcony, bedroom and spacious bathroom. Everything was very clean and well-presented but still had a cozy home feel that you'd expect of a B&B.

The continental breakfast was great, and although I'd initially planned to pay an extra $10 for the cooked option, the fruit, yogurt, breads and coffee were perfect so I just stuck with that.

The hosts were very friendly and unobstrusive. Clodagh seemed to know exactly when I was in the mood for a chat and when I'd rather be left alone. She was attentive and offered to drive me to my conference each morning (I refused because the walk was so nice). And Ieven found homemade treats waiting for me in the kitchenette when I returned at night.

The beach is only a few minutes walk away, and Hillarys (full of shops, cafes, water games) is only about 25 minutes. And the walk itself is worth it, along a new beach boardwalk and restored dunes.

I'm very glad I found this place or else I may have ended up in the Quality Inn on the corner where my colleagues were staying (same price, not so nice)

We stayed for 2 nights because we wanted a different experience this time and what with CHOGM going on and its limited access to the city by car, we reckon we will stay out of the city and near the water instead.

When we arrived, we only knew that there's only one group per stay and therefore you are not sharing the bathroom with another guest. This is nice. The room was reasonably clean save for the dusty fan above our bed. The walk in wardrobe is a nice touch. There were even bedroom slippers. The house is located near a bus stop and if you are a light sleeper, you might be disturbed. Other than the occasional motorcycle rambling down the street, the house is located on a quiet street with a short walk to Hillary Harbour and other dining spots. There is a large flat screen TV and counter space with a sink and fridge in the living room. The rooms are located upstairs of the house and might be a problem for people with bad knees.

Two of the face towels were stained in the usually soiled areas and I used them to wipe around the sink instead.

There are two sinks in the bathroom. The bathroom was large enough to accommodate more people if you are in a rush.

The breakfast was average with plunger coffee and tea. There were a few spots on the dishes and I need to clean them before using them. The tea pot really needs to be scrubbed as the tea stains were pretty obvious to me.

I would recommend if you want dinning recommendations around the area, you have to do the homework yourself. It's a hit or miss in Perth's infamous reputation in customer service.

Otherwise, the hosts were friendly and helped us with a minor car situation.

My husband and I stayed overnight, because we were going to a wedding. It was raining, and Clodagh offered to give us a lift to the wedding at hillarys boat harbour! Gorgeous accommodation, exceptionally clean and modern, walking distance to the beach, lovely breakfast, friendly and attentive hosts. It was excellent value, and we would highly recommend it.

We stayed at the Sorrento Beach Bed & Breakfast in early August for a long four day weekend and loved every minute there.

Our flight from Singapore arrived rather late at midnight and since Sorrento is a 40 minutes drive from the airport we were quite worried about having to wake up the owners in the middle of the night. These worries were unfounded though. Cheerful Clodagh greeted us at the door and led us to the beautiful upstairs where we quickly fell asleep in the comfortable bed with electric blankets keeping us nice and warm.

We were a little worried that going to Perth in the middle of the winter would be a little too cold, however the weather throughout our stay was fantastic, sunshine and 19-20 degrees. Perfect.

We watched the beautiful sunrise through the big windows in the bedroom while lying comfortably in bed. Thereafter we went for breakfast, which was wonderful. Several types of bread, cereal, juice and of course coffee and tea were available. Further there was a huge bowl of freshly cut fruit and yoghurt, making sure you have your vitamins for the day. It was always lovely to have a chat with the hosts Clodagh and Alan. They were great hosts and were happy to cater for anything one might need.

It is only a short walk to the beach. The beach is literally around the corner, maybe 500 metres down the road and the beach is lovely. Very nearby is also Hillarys Boat Harbour with plenty of shopping and dining possibilities. Fremantle was just a short drive away from Sorrento and we experienced the weekend market with plenty to see. For those who do not have a rental car the bed and breakfast is still very convenient since there is a bus stop right across the road.

The first floor has coffee making facilities, a fridge and a nice lounge area with a big tv. This made for a relaxing winter evening after a day out in the sun. The bathroom and walk in wardrobe are very spacious. Everything was clean and tidy.

Caversham wildlife park is just a short drive North from Sorrento and the Swan Valley wineries were very nearby as well. To get to the City of Perth you can just drive to a nearby train station, park for free and then take the tram to the city. It is very convenient.

We loved our stay and will happily return. It is pretty much a no-brainer to us, Perth = Sorrento Beach Bed & Breakfast.

Thank you Clodagh and Alan for a great time.

What a fabulous place to stay! Not too far from Perth or Fremantle and with easy access to public transport. Both Clodagh and Alan were very tentative hosts and nothing was too much trouble. A beautiful house, spotlessly clean and lovely ambiance.
We stayed just the two of us this time, but will definately be back with our family next time as this place fits a family perfectly.

We stayed here or 4 nights as we were visiting friends who live up the road near Hilary's Marina.
It exceeded our expectations, immaculate yet homely, and very welcoming. The good thing it you have the upstairs of the home, which has a double bedroom with a massive walk in wardrobe, another twin bedroom. There is a jack and jill bathroom between both bedrooms, which again is very spacious having a whirlpool bath, a large walk in shower and two vanity units. The lounge was spacious where you have a tv and also a balcony. A really lovely place to stay.
Breakfast was alfresco downstairs which was freshly made every day, and for extra you can request a cooked breakfast. We didnt do this as it was hot and the breakfast consisted of fresh fruit salad, bread, cereals, yoghert and pastries - more than enough.
i would recommend staying here , its a short walk to the beach (10-15 mins), and there were plenty of busses passing by for those less active.
