“2.5 stars”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

I guess you get what you pay for.

The actual layout of the units are fine, but I found myself constantly sitting on the edge of the couch or feeling like I needed to shower after we flipped over one of the couch cushions to find band aids underneath. It just gave a really bad impression but for a quick over night stay I could live with it.

Had a table booked for 2 next to the window with a lovely view on a Sunday night which was great. We had cheesy herb bread and 2 chicken parmas which were very well cooked and it took less than 15 minutes to come out after ordering. We did put in our orders just before it got pretty busy! Service was good but not fantastic! Our only main complaint would be the overpriced meals and drinks.

The unit is old but that would have been ok if it wasnt so filthy - not just dust but greese up the walls in the kitchen, dirty ashtrays, washing powder on floor in laundry, kettle unusable for the green sludge in the bottom, broken door handles, bed hard, dirty dish cloth, I could go on! The only good thing about the place is its location. We didnt eat there as the menu doesnt cater for young kids. When I brought these things up with reception they couldnt care less. Go somewhere else!

I stayed at the hotel for 3 midweek nights, off peak and booked via a discount booking website. Originally, it was 2 nights but I asked for an extra day. I was going to be charged $55 more extending via reception. So, got on my phone, booked the extra night via the discount site, saving $70. Go figure!!
My room was spacious, clean, newly painted, new carpet and reasonably modern ensuite. The window looked out to the beach, but trees blocked views. The table was in an awkward position, hard to sit & read as lighting is poor. Moving the table simply meant that the lighting was worse.

Minor issues? No information about the hotel is in the room. There was no box of tissues. No instructions for the airconditioner. The top of the area to place baggage was badly scraped - just a bad look & maybe I am pedantic. Making over the room by the cleaner was limited to less important matters. Towels were changed (I'm happy to re-use) and the bed made. No replacement coffees, teas etc. No replacing the used cups, saucers & glasses with clean ones, no actual cleaning of the room.The toaster has a dried piece of meat stuck in it. Yuck. No toast.

Thye hotel's bistro's menu looked underwhelming.

Overall, great value at $80 per night. Lowest off-peak rack rate of $150? not so much value. Good ordinary pub.

We just stopped here for one night, off season and paid $100 for a narrow room that, though facing the beach, didn`t have much of a view or sunlight. The bed was comfortable and the heater worked. The restaurant served good food, but doesn`t do room service. Convenient parking behind the building. The few staff we saw were nice and helpful. The location is excellent, right on the beach, and Lorne is definitely the most scenic place to stay on the Great Ocean Road.

This is the first ever restaurant in which I could've quite easily eaten EVERY single item off the menu (minus one ... sorry but i can't stomach beetroot).
The food was de'lish, service very prompt, atmosphere fine with great views and all prices for both food and drinks very reasonably priced. The venue itself is huge with plenty of areas both inside and out to accommodate the crowds. A great pub with much to offer!

We bought a travel auction holiday as the Internet pics looked good. The Lorne pub is good. The meals are very good and enjoyed them. The accommodation was terrible . We were told we had the good rooms with a sea view. The room was sort of clean, uncomfortable bed, filthy windows you couldn't se through , could see the ocean if I stood on a table , everything you touched eg cupboards the handles fell of. Very disappointed . Won't be back to this accomodation or recommend it .,
