Nice staff, ok room”
I booked this hotel last minute. The room is ok. I just don't understand why it is so expensive to stay in Lorne and this was one of the more "economical" choices. However, the staff is very nice and helpful.
Friendly staff and practical rooms. ”
the manager was very informative regarding local attractions and travel tips to and from the attractions. the rooms were tidy and well maintained. the showers excellent and the main bed comfortable. the sofa bed was like all sofa beds i have slept in, good for only a few nights stay. the adjacent holiday park was a little noisy at night but not to the point of being annoying and most kids were in bed at a reasonable time. all in all we enjoyed our stay at the best western lorne.
Basic comfortable motel”
Value for money is limited as Lorne overall is priced at a premium. No extras apart from free wifi and milk in the fridge. Early checkin is generally not an option. Pluses include a kitchenette. Not suitable for disabled people as no lift and rooms upstairs.
Convenient, near to supermarket ”
Friendly staff, provide us good information on the hotel surrondings and recommended breakfast at the other hotel with a good price. The hotel's heater is good too, had a comfort sleep in the night. Good Kitchen's facilities, the room is clean and easy to setup the sofabed. The hotel is easily located and is right infront of the ocean. The only issue for this hotel will be - no lift for this hotel, so me and friends had to climb up to the 3rd storey to our room.
Typical overnight Hotel”
First stop at our tour at the Great Ocean Road. Easy to find and just a drive from the Center away. Self accomodation with small kitchen, but no stove. All in all a Good One Night stay.
Good experience, lovely hotel and service ”
Good location and friendly service. Love birds surrounding the hotel. Very close to supermarket. Pretty easy to approach the beach.The owner of the hotel is very friendly and recommended a shortcut for coming back from The twelve apostles.That was saving us lots of time.
Comfortable and well located.”
We had a great stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Nice and quiet.
lovely place to stay with great staff”
great locaton and excellent place to stay. very peaceful and great staff
Great, quiet location but the noisy plumbing & o/n laundry operating is a real put off”
The room, bathroom & kitchenette are large. The linen is new & tries to update the 80’s decor. The aircon/heater, cupboard doors, lightfittings, tiling & bathroom all need an urgent update. It was clean but the rooms are only ‘tidied’ if you ask, including towel changes. The bed was comfortable but would be better without the electric blanket during the summer months. The front office is manned btw 9-10am & 2-6pm only by staff with very poor english. There were some safety concerns- the blinds were inoperable, there were broken power plates in the bathroom exposing wires, the kitchenette corner cupboard did not close, the toaster burnt everything, no fan in the bathroom to prevent mould, the carparking spots were far too small & the cutlery was scarce. There are NO Foxtel channels or daily breakfasts as advertised. And the BBQ area is very run down & used as the ‘smoking area.’ Our room would be too hot on a summer day. Great location- supermarket, beach & restaurants & shops
Great hotel for beach access”
Great little motel, perfect base to explore the area. Only draw back is the proximity to the caravan next door, which did get noisy at night. Also situated on a roundabout, so vehicle noise was also noticeable.
good location, decent room”
not mindblowing but solid hotel. location is in walking distance to good restaurant and close to the beach as well (breakfast at the boathouse! slow service but great food)
The hotel is good and I like the spa. We have a lot of fun. Definitely, we will be there again next time
Fantastic and very helpful staff”
I loved it so much that my sister and I will stay there again. Terry the owner was amazing because he told us where to go to see Koalas and he was feeding Kookerburras by hand in the garden.
Very relaxing. The room was of a good size and clean. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
May be it was a weekday when we were there, there were only 2 rooms occupied with limited lighting lighted. Quite scary thought. No lift available as the rooms are up on the 1st and 2nd level. Food convenient store are easily accessible within walking distance.
Nice place~good location~”
Everything is perfect~can park car in their yard~fast checkin fast checkout~there is a supermarket around n 10minutes walk to a beach~really continent!
Very nice host”
motel is good: quiet, clean, comfortable. the host was very nice, my car's a/c charger was down, and he asisted me to recharge my gps by usb cable with his computer . thanks a lot!!
Good value, but not the cosiest room”
It's ok, but a little tough round the edges. If you were staying in and wanted a cosy room it's not the best. But if you're just sleeping it's fine. Air vent in bathroom makes Things cold, it elecectric blanket on bed was nice.
Comfortable for an overnight stay”
Loved the heater in the room and the electric blanket. The reverse cycle heater was far too loud though and kept my husband awake.
Just what was needed”
Thanks for making it easy to attend Victorian IRB championships in crazy rainy weather.
