Things to see in Sorrento - Hotel Sorrento

  • 963.jpg

Standing proudly on the cliff top overlooking the sparkling waters of Port Phillip Bay, Hotel Sorrento is the oldest commercial building in Sorrento. The gracious and elegant Hotel building complete with tower is a community icon, flaunting magnificent original locally cut limestone.  Built by John Farnsworth in 1872 for P. J. Martin, the owner of the Australian Brewery, it was intended to be a Hotel and for over 150 years has been run as one.  Hotel Sorrento’s earliest guests were attracted to the tranquil and gracious bayside hotel as an escape from the bustling streets of Melbourne. Ferried then, by Weerona and Hygeia paddle steamers Hotel Sorrento was the first port of call.  In 1981, Margaret and Ian Pitt bought the hotel. The Pitt family were graziers and acquired the hotel with the view to their second son, Rob managing the business.  The hotel has been Rob's passion since day one.

The Sorrento Restaurant offers old world charm, exciting modern cuisine, complimented by magnificent sea views. The menu is comprised of grills and seafood with local Australian ingredients and a fusion of International flavours. Designed to delight the taste buds the restaurant provides a great place to catch up with family and friends! The limestone surrounds radiate an atmosphere of style and elegance. 

The Hotel offers many great events and dining experiences.  Don't forget to spoil Mum this Mother's day with a family lunch in Hotel Sorrento's award winning restaurant, bookings are essential.
