Very clean room, warm, quiet, good size room and comfortable. Great location, not far from the main shops and the beach- easy walking distance. Very friendly guy in the office and he was happy to help us- highly recommended, we would stay again :)

This is an older, but well build concrete motel on the outskirts of Lorne in a convenient location for motorists. Unfortunately, the interior of our room was pretty shabby, (although clean and freshly painted). Dark bathroom with old fixtures and cracked tile, cupboards that didn't quite close. Our biggest concern, however, was the little ants that invaded our room overnight.... More

On the positive side the bath room is great and rooms look pleasant. However they were terribly cold and the air con-heater didn't heat adequately. Investigate the electric blanket switch before turning in. Strangely all rooms only suit couples. The sofa bed isn't suitable for a third person, wafer thin mattress. Expensive for what's being offered. The caravan park out... More

It's located right opposite to the beach and was a great place to stay with family. The only thing was the rooms were styled in an old way but spacious. Besides that the service was good. The free car parking was big. Free wifi was also available. The beds were also really comfortable

Coachman Inn is old, worn, dusty and just not good enough for today's travellers/tourists. Ants in the bed, carpets worn, blinds dusty. The photo does it too much justice. We suggest that you should spend the night in Apollo Bay.

The room itself was okay - clean, small, decorated in that oh so attractive '70s brown. We rejected the first room because the chain for the lock was missing. There is a split system aircon that is so old with visible dust build-up, and it took 20 minutes to heat up. I needed to stand on a chair to reach... More

Just showed up without reservation and got a room. The price is a bit high, but almost all accommodations on the Great Ocean Route are pricy. The room is specious but quite old fashioned. Everything was clean. No breakfast included, should be at least for this price! Location is good and free car parking available. Just a couple of minutes... More
