I had a great stay at Chatby Lane in Lorne over New Years. The main issue was the price was quite high over that period but I'm sure it is like that with most accommodation over New Years. Doug and Karen were very friendly and accommodating.
The rooms were very clean and the double spa was huge.
I did expect an oven and hot plates in the kitchen so was disappointed to find there was only a microwave to cook with.
The beach wasn't entirely visible from the ground floor apartment but it was a short downhill walk. The town and only supermarket were only a short distance away also.
I love the fact the apartment is for couples only, it was a very peaceful and relaxing stay. I recommend it to any couple wanting to spend time in Lorne.
