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

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
