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....

Room it's self appeared clean until I turned the aircon on and black dust went every where. They do have daily cleaning if you need it. Balcony was a...

First impressions could put you off as the exterior is not very prepossessing but our room was a most pleasant surprise. It was listed as 'deluxe with an ocean view' and this is exactly what we got. It was spacious with a lovely balcony and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was very well-equipped with a large tv, extra chairs,...

Booked 2 nights at this motel with intention to explore the western part of Great Ocean Road. We were given an upgrade where the view of the ocean was great. This is a dated motel and probably what you expect for $140 a night. The room was upstairs requiring luggage to be lugged up slowly but upstairs is where the...

We stayed recently in a deluxe room. Basically this is a good motel standard room with a beach view and a great balcony for looking out over the water. Whilst all the fittings aren't that modern and the TV suffered from typical Lorne reception issues, the free WIFI worked well. The location is great, but if you are a light...
