25 Feb. 2020 by Shells

We appreciate your personal feedback and are disappointed to hear your concerns. We provide fresh, crisp and clean sheets and this is the first time we have been advised they were not comfortable. We are thrilled to be able to offer tv/dvd in each bedroom as well as a large tv/dvd in the dining/lounge room. We appreciate that stair access is not for everyone's ease however we are grateful to have our apartments elevated so guests can enjoy the the beautiful street, tree top view over Sorrento Main Street. Kind regards, Shells Apartments Management

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.

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!

Pros: Location & oven
Cons: Needs a REALLY GOOD CLEAN!
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

Great Location

We really enjoyed our stay and the location was brilliant. The only thing that could be and should be improved on is the carpets needed a good vacuuming and the wet areas needed a good mopping. Otherwise we were very comfortable in the apartment we stayed in.

Boring, dated and terrible view.

Wasn't many there but they decided to put us in the room which looked onto a brick wall with air conditioners in top. Bed and bathroom ok and apartment clean. decor boring and dated. Horrible entry into the apartments via the car park.
