Location is the best as it has a sea view, right in front of the Lorne beach and right in the middle of the shops.

              If there is anything that i could say needs improving it would be the shallow sinks in the kitchenette, they need to be deeper, that is the only thing that i could say needs improving, every other aspect of the Sandridge is fantastic, i suppose i and my wife are a bit biased as we always stay there when we go to Lorne the staff are friendly, courteous it is easy walking distance to the Lorne township and the best part is you can listen to the ocean from your personal balcony.

              my daughter & i had a lovely and comfortable stay at the sandridge motel. the bayview room we had was big enough for the both of us. we had a room where the balcony gave us a good view of the bay. we found that this motel is in a very good location - shops to the left and to the right and the beach at the front. as it is situated on the ocean beach road itself, it was convenient for us when we went for a long drive, right up to peterborough. it was great that the erskine waterfalls was not far away from the motel either. the reception staff was very friendly and nice. we were very happy we chose this motel to stay at.

              Location, Room View, Helpful Staff

              Had a pleasant surprise upon checking in late for the day, we received a free upgrade to a balcony room with an ocean view which was very beautiful indeed. Such a great feeling waking up and seeing the ocean view right outside our windows. Room is comfortable and spacious and very well-maintained with facilities to make our stay more comfortable. Good wi-fi connection available which was very helpful for our stay. Staff at reception was friendly and helpful, was able to recommend and direct us to a few places that were still open for a late dinner. Only drawback about the hotel would be the very narrow parking lot, which made it quite a challenge to park our vehicle properly. There were also tons of bugs flying around and for some strange reason, many managed to slip into the washroom even though the windows were closed and meshed. All in all, a great stay!

              Nice place, If I was to stay at Lorne again it will be here. The gentleman that greeted us didn't appear to be happy, especially when I walked past him one morning and barely got a "hello" when I said good morning to him. The rooms were cleaned nicely. Great access to the beach and restaurants!

              location, walking distance to restaurants and cafes

              In the heart of Lorne, a walking distances from cafes and restaurants and a pleasant drive to sightsee! Do prepare yourself for a small parking space. We stayed 3nights in the Deluxe room. Upon our arrive we thought we were given a key to an occupied room, there was a half-drunk McCafe coffee left on the coffee table (must have been missed by staff). We though the service from the staff was average. The shower in the room was temperamental, it was either freezing cold or extremely hot. The cleanliness of the bedding was a disappointment, we discovered stained sheets and stained blankets, it required a good wash, or simply an update. However, motel had a lovely ocean view, not our room though we had more of a tin roof view than ocean. In our opinion differently not value for our money.

              Decent stop over location”

              Clean, well located and good sea view

              Situated in the middle of lorne makes this a good location for a one night stop over along the great ocean road. Clean rooms albeit looking worn. Generally quiet

              Lorne at a squeeze”

              The romm had a great ocean view and balcony. The bathroom was tight and sparse, like the kitchenette. Aircon worked well. Great access to Lorne's shops & restruants.

              Considering the demand at Lorne I was surprised that the motel had such a leggo feel to its layout - tight - mediocre- dated. Room access is all stairs and concrete halls.At least the TV and wifi is working.
