After checking out the reviews I hoped I would be able to stay here. Reviews were all good and the price was reasonable. I was staying here as part of my vacation where I planned to drive the Great Ocean Road. Terry, the owner, was very welcoming and as I was taking his last room,which happened to be the disabled...

Pleasant reception greeting and welcoming. As there was 3 we ended up with a fold out sofa that wasn't overly comfortable, in the end. Situated close to shops and supermarket so convenient. Rooms reasonable and has most items required.

Rooms were clean and a reasonable size with a small kitchenette which was helpful for breakfast. Bed, only a double, but comfortable. TV was small, decor, including bathrooms was, very 1990s. Squeeze bottle soap/shampoo is not cool any more if it ever was. Light from outdoor was not kept out by venetians, there was privacy but unable to get a... More

Overall excellent experience - especially the service - Terry could not have been more helpful or accommodating and made this a really pleasant stay. The rooms are clean, spacious and as advertised. The kitchen has a microwave for cooking but bar fridge with small freezer and all the crockery required. Location was excellent - only a 7 minute walk to... More

The best thing was the location, it's about a five minute walk to the start of the shopping strip so we could walk to shops and restaurants easily and didn't use the car much at all. The main thing I didn't like was the room was cold when we arrived and the two heaters in the room were noisy. It... More

Ours was a last minute booking and our queen and single not cheap at $180, but nearly all accommodation in Lorne was full. Spacious room, clean, comfortable with reasonably modern decor (bathroom looked older). Small kitchenette with crockery, fridge, microwave but no hob so the only method of "cooking" is microwave. Comfortable beds. Terry was friendly and welcoming.

Very friendly welcome from Angela. We stayed in a queen standard room which was very clean, and quite roomy. Bathroom clean and shower was very large. Kitchenette had everything you needed. The only thing that was annoying was our neighbours had a late night shower and i was kept awake by screaming water pipes. Overall, a very pleasant stay. Close... More

Very friendly and knowledgable owner Angela took the time to remember our names and give us advice about the town attractions . The rooms were a tad chilly (as you need to bundle up near the coast) but the shower was hot with great pressure and the electric blanket was toasty . The kitchenette is well stocked with microwave ,... More

All the book sites were coming back "fully booked". i looked on the hotel's own web site and they said "please enquire". I rang and spoke with Terry who promised to check and call back. After...
