My son and I were on a road trip and we stayed here for one night. The location was awesome, the beds were really comfortable. We had a double/Queen and single so it worked well for us. Staff were very friendly and pointed out some great attractions and gave some great advice on where to stay/go next. A little bit...

At $210 the view from the room was nice but the quality of the room was quite poor. It definitely needs an upgrade for the price particularly in the bathroom area. Spiders in the bathroom as well. Lady at front desk pleasant.

Other than the reception staff who a bit awkward in terms of customer service, this hotel is otherwise fantastic. The views are simply sublime. The rooms are clean (I have been 3 times in the last 5 years). The prices are reasonable. This is my go to hotel when I visit Lorne. I have uploaded a photo of the sunrise...

I checked in to find that the reservation that I had made with OTEL.COM was riddled with issues ...... I had booked two rooms with OTEL.COM, but I'd received an email from OTEL.COM stipulating that I the rooms I had booked were unavailable but I could change to another venue or cancel. I cancelled one room and kept the other....

It was my partner and I anniversary and we were staying here, worst decision! As we arrived the receptionist held onto my ID and stated we don't allow schoolies to stay at the motel. We clearly weren't apart of schoolies, she then hesitated to give us the room and then stated several times that she won't hesitate to kick us...

Nice room. Good views of the Bay. Lorne is a bit quiet tonight so a few glasses of vino on the balcony is to order. A great little noodle bar take away just outside so dinner set as well. Very central location and minutes (seconds even) to everything.

The motel is located right in the middle of Lorne with lots of eateries on both sides. Looks rather dated from outside but once you are in the room it is a different story. Service is friendly & fast. This was the biggest room throughout my Great Ocean Road trip. So it was fitting that it was the last stop....
