Whilst motel was clean the heater was noisy and there was water on the carpet. Changed rooms but neither the Heater or the electric blankets worked. Bed was comfy, had a good nights sleep. Motel could do with an upgrade. Owners pleasant

Room was large and comfortable, but had definitely seen better days and needed upgrading. Location was good but there was a lot of noise until after midnight from the adjacent camp site. Staff were pleasant and helpful. This was the most expensive of our 4 stops doing the GOR from Melbourne to Adelaide but came a clear 4th in terms... More

Looking at some of negative reviews surprised with lovely atmosphere and the updated room, we really enjoyed staying there .Just opposite to river and beach. The room was spacious, neat and tidy with good amenities. I would recommend to everyone.

This is an older motel but the rooms were large, had good kitchenette facilities, and a comfortable bed. It is located on the edge of Lorne, but it is a relatively short walk to downtown. The cost was reasonable. It was quite a decent place to spend a night.
