It definitely offer a good wifi however you have to compensate with a cold night during winter because the heater is outside the rooms and you have to sleep with bedrooms door open just to get the heat from the heater ( however it is still a cold night for us). The kitchen was quite okay but we didn't get... More

A budget hostel cum hotel for a short overnight stay. What works for it is the spacious cottage styled accommodation for families, clean rooms, parking, proximity to a supermarket across the road and a functional kitchen. Don't go looking for great views or a very high level of cleanliness in the cottage or the grounds but if you can accept... More

Booked this place online and was surprised that the twin room i booked is more like a stay in house..We shared the 'house' with another couple. since i requested to have separate beds, they were kind enough to give us the double decker beds which could actually accommodate 3 people. The is the large sofa, dining table, kitchen where u... More

We had booked in via Internet, on arrival Michelle expressed concern the room we had booked probably would suit us. ( the room we had booked was in a dorm, we are in our mid 60's ), so Michelle suggest the apartment which had become vacant, and for an extra $15 we had the apartment, wonderful. Had a good look...

This reasonably priced little spot is certainly worth using as either a base or an overnight stop on the Great Ocean Road. It is very good value for money (and as a result, pretty basic as you'd expect), but it was clean and tidy, with a good and generous breakfast thrown in. The kitchen is also well-equipped and the social... More

Excellent location, clean and comfortable rooms at reasonable price. We rented a two bedroom unit that had a double bed and two singles. The kitchen was well large, and couch comfortable. The jacuzzi tub helped after a long day hiking.

We booked a night at the Lodge as part of our Great Ocean Road weekend. On arrival, Michelle was lovely! The unit was spacious, well equipped and clean - especially considering the room rate! At check out, staff were also friendly. All in all, a great place to rest your head when you're on a budget.

Me and my friend really enjoy our stay here. I think we had a family room which meant a two level home, with one bedroom each. About 1 min walk to Foodworks and about 5 to the beach. We managed to sleep in and checking out late was not a problem at all.. Would recommend this place based on our... More

Nice location, just a few minutes from the beach and the town. The staff at the reception was very friendly and we enjoyed the free wifi. The room was big, the bathroom as well and it was very quiet. The electric blanket is very enjoyable if it's a bit cold. I would recommend this accommodation, quality/price was very good.

Requested a twin bed room. My female friend and I (also female) had advised staff via email that we were arriving on the 10:30pm bus from Melbourne. Arrived on time, contacted John at reception - only to have him smirk that we'd "have a great sleep in the one bed" - what the hell? Passive aggression and outright rudeness before... More
