“What a spot!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Just spent 3 nights in Lorne with mates for a charity cycling ride.
This pub became our afternoon ritual for a great cold beer with an exceptional view of the water and main street.
It is in a unbelievable position and has a massive outdoor area. We didn't eat here but there was never a shortage of people ordering what looked like fairly good value meals.As we were there in spring I can only imagine that in summer it must be one of the spots to be in Lorne

this hotel was one of our worst experiences in australia. the rooms looked nothing like what was advertised on the internet. the room, although had nearly everything we needed for a comfortable stay, was far from comfortable! poor quality bed and matress, gross shower (you could see mould) dodgy plug socket which i almost ripped out of the wall by accident as was already half hanghing out! and the cherry on the cicing was the noise from the nightclub right below us. not a good stay!

One of the worst hotel I have ever stayed in my life. From the check-in experience to check out. Everything was just terrible. Simply not worth staying there for money or hospitality and will not recommend to anyone. The website is just a false testimony and the hotel management didn't even care what we had to say. The 4 days we stayed, we didn't want to stay in the hotel because of the minimal facility.......but we had no choice as there was no refund and all we had to do is just stay outside to forget about the misery of spending such money for the crap room/service......also the photos that we have put up show how clean the spa was that we used.... you will be shocked! ..... also the quilt that we got given to sleep with had so many stains on it and was ripped.... was so old ... they need new bedding... this place is so cheap on there equipment!!! also when we asked for the room to be cleaned... they forgot to empty the bin... i had to empty it myself and give it to the receptionist down stairs and ask for a new bag for the bin.... also they did not give us more toilet paper or other things so i had to ask for this as well.....

I was very disappointed with this hotel. Looking at their website it looks quite nice but this is not the reality, they must have found a very good photographer is all i can say. Unfortunately we had to stay 2 nights but tried to checkout after our first night but we were told we'd only get 50% of our money back. The main issue was the room and the proximity to a night club. The room was VERY basic and depressing. It had a very uncomfortable double bed, TV, small table and fridge. The weather was poor when we went so we had no choice but to spend time in our room which wasn't enjoyable. On our first night we were kept up until 1.30am by the nightclub below our room. We didn't see any indication there was a night club on their website but believe me there is one! Oh yeah and my wife found a used condom at the bottom of the bin. I wouldn't stay here again.

This hotel rooms did not look like the pictures that were shown on the hotels\'s website. The room we had was quite small and although it was in need of a reburbishment, it was still clean and had everything we needed for a 2 night stay. The balcony had views of the beach(even though a bit obscured by trees) and was a lovely sunny place to sit in the morning. The heating was good and once the door was closed there was minimal noise from the street below. I think that the value for money was good and the hotel's meals were excellent. The room also didnt have a couch to sit and watch tv so we had to lay on the bed all the time to either read or watch tv.

Room Tip: Maybe tell the receptionist that you want a room that is advertised and shown on their website as th...
