Just got back from a two night stay here. The bed was so comfortable, the room was so clean, it was very quiet but only a short stroll into town. The way that the apartments are set up for couples is fantastic. To find child free accommodation is rare and is why I would stay here again and recommend it... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay here recently with my husband. Rooms were spacious and clean with all the amenities you would need. Our room had a corner spa bath and free wifi. The room also had a small kitchen. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Eating out is expensive, so would recommend pre-cooking your meals, and reheating in the... More

Located about 600m to the east of the town centre, Chatby Lane is within easy walking distance to all the attractions in Lorne or 30 seconds by car. Clean, convenient, quiet (other than sound of birds in the trees), the Chatby Lane was an excellent accommodation choice for us. The staff (a husband and wife team) were pleasant and friendly...

Great boutique establishment. Not too big or impersonal. Tucked away in quiet, tree lined area of Lorne. On a hill, overlooking the beach and inlet. Spacious, clean rooms / bathrooms with all the usual facilities one needs for a comfortable stay. Quality bedding & range of pillows. Recommended for couples, as kids would detract from the serenity of the place.... More

Beautiful spotlessly clean rooms, quiet and with a lovely outlook onto trees. The owners do all they can to help you and are delightful. It is a short drive to the shops or you can walk down the tree lined hills and along the foreshore. Best accommodation in our trip

What a nice place this is! Huge rooms and well equipped. It is located about one kilometre out of town, up the hill a bit amongst the trees. We stayed just one night. Breakfast was included and was excellent with good muesli and great coffee. Bed was exceptionately comfortable. Our host, Doug, was friendly and helpful.

We found this accommodation courtesy of the Lorne tourist information office whilst touring the Great Ocean Road. It was without doubt the best accommodation we had during our month in Victoria. Our ground floor room had 2 windows looking out partially over the ocean and a small balcony, a vey smart bathroom and more than adequate kitchen area. The bed... More

Karen was warm and welcoming and offered us an upgrade to a larger room with a balcony that was available - I'm so pleased we took her up on the offer and at such a good rate - it was wonderful to sit there and watch the cockatoos and see the sea. The room was huge and newly furnished and... More

I stayed in the spa apartment for a few nights, and overall I was happy with it. The apartment was huge and spotlessly clean. There was a large balcony with some ocean views, though mostly just of other houses. It was well appointed, especially the full kitchen. The bed was very comfortable. I also found the staff (owners?) to be... More
