A Beautiful stunning location, a beautiful resort - everything wonderful, close to excellent shops and cafe's, right on the beach and the local swimming complex with put put and trampolines, and not to mention one of the most stunning places on earth - The Great Ocean Road'.

Came down for a winter weekend getaway and was greeted by friendly staff and given a free room upgrade. The room was bright and airy, and a good size. The only downside is it is feeling a little "worn". Great location, walking distance to everything. Breakfast was included, and it was a wonderful selection. Then to kick back and read... More

Nicely appointed and comfortable apartment/unit. We went at a quiet time, so there were only one of two other rooms in our section occupied. The beach view rooms could be a bit overlooked when full, but Manta Lorne would not be alone there. The layout of the bathroom and toilet let it down a little - cramped and awkward. Staff... More

We recently had a night away with our 2 eldest children at the Mantra Lorne. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, which people have spoken about before as being 2 separate rooms with a common foyer. This worked well as our kids are older but if you had younger children you would need to prop open the doors to keep... More

Rooms are definitely not like the website photos, disappointing and not up to standard. Phone in room did not work, no room service menu, no DVD player, cd player, stereo or bath as stated for that room type on website. Very basic, arrived on a cold afternoon, the window was open and the room took hours to heat. When I... More

The room was right by the gym so very noisy. Used tissues and old tea bag left on floor by the fridge. Only 1 coffee cup supplied. No free wifi. Really small room but ok as we only stayed one night glad we weren't there for a long stay.

This is our first trip here to the Mantra Lorne. We have stayed at one of the Mantra's in Broadbeach Qld, so had high expectations.

We have just booked in for a nights stay. Upon arrival we tried to get to our room a little earlier but no avail, all good we know the deal a sunny walk in picturesque Lorne will suffice. So we have paid $179 for a 1room apartment. On first impression it is in good location to the beach, a short... More
