Weekend get away stayed here once before and there are now new management. We were disappointed as the owners were so lovely the first time round. We were able to see the kookaburras as the cane to visit the balconies late afternoon. Bed a bit hard. But other than that a great time.

Stayed at this motel for one night recently. It is an older style motel with noisy plumbing.and ancient A/C unit. Very basic with few facilities. The room was clean and functional but less than inspiring. The outlook is also uninspiring with all rooms overlooking the local caravan park. Lorne was quite busy that weekend. As there were few, if any,... More

Though the room was comfortable and had everything you needed,it was very dated and dowdy and very expensive compared to the other hotels we stayed in on the Great Ocean Road.The fridge and cutlery drawer were not very clean.The town and beach are a short walk and there is a supermarket very close.The reception is welcoming.

Given that Lorne can be a very expensive place to stay, I was quite pleasantly suprised with the Coachman Inn at how cheap and nice it actually was. Staff even let us check in earlier as we needed to get to a wedding on the day we checked in. It's right up the end of the town but very close... More

We had spent 3 night at the coachman inn and our stay was very relaxing and peaceful. We stayed on the second level and it was beautiful to watch the cockatoo's. The Manager at the front office was very kind and had lots of patience to answer every question that we were not aware of, he also helped us twice... More

We have just spent one night at Lorne Coachman Inn at a reasonable rate. We found the location excellent, handy for the beach, supermarket and restaurants. Our room was clean and had everything that was needed, including a spa bath. Yes the rooms perhaps need to be updated but that did not spoil our stay. Our connection to wifi was... More

We paid $320 for one night and it was only worth $120 . It's dated my air con didn't work and when I asked to check out the room a little later than 10 the reception said yeah for an extra $25 I laughed and said I think you've ripped me off enough. The deluxe rooms are no different than... More

We were so disappointed when we arrived at the dated Coachman Inn. Lorne is extremely expensive so this night was our most expensive of our trip (including Sydney and Melbourne). Positives: Parking All the basic facilities (shower, kettle, microwave, hairdryer etc) Friendly service 5-10 min walk to the centre of Lorne Near a supermarket Hot shower Negatives: Absolutely no style...

This hotel is in a good location in Lorne. Paid the most expensive price for a room during our great ocean road trip. There had been a smoker in the room previously despite the no smoking policy and the carpet looked like it had been chewed around the entire room by carpet beetles, the room needs updating. Friendly service.
