This is standard Motel style accomodation, that I used while exploring the Great Ocean Road. Lorne is a great place to stop, as it offers a good choice of cafes and restaurants. The host was extremely pleasant and made sure I knew exactly where I was heading on my travels. You could order a continental breakfast the night before, as there was no option for a cooked breakfast. The mini bar in the room was easily the most reasonably priced I came across during my stay in Australia.

The Best Western in Lorne is a really nice, friendly, clean hotel. Terry and Angela, the owners welcomed us on arrival as I went mad with excitement at the Kookaburras, rosellas and cockatoos on the wall in their yard! The room was spotless and a lot of thought had gone into making it comfortable from the decor itself to the water supplied in the fridge. Angela recommended a great little bistro the Ba-Ba-Lu (?), a couple of minutes walk away and the food was gorgeous. Terry let me hand feed the rosellas and I was in my element. I got the most amazing photographs of the Kookaburras too. Lorne itself was my favourite spot on the GOR and if you are thinking of doing it I would highly recommend you stop off in Lorne at the Great Western.

Had a 3 night stay here on a "Getaway"deal with our 2 year old grandaughter for $102 pn.(charged for 3 Adults as no child $ policy) Good sized room (modern/fresh/clean) on 2nd floor down the end in great position and nice and quiet. Our room had a queen bed and extremely comfortable sofabed and a well equipped kitchenette so were able to heat food in microwave. Also ordered room service breakfast which was enjoyable. The managers feed cockies/kookaburras on the fence which was great to see. The Motel itself is at the Gelong edge of town opposite a boardwalk/ swingbridge to beach-enjoyable and easy 5 minute walk. This is a perfect position as nice quiet area but still close to everything.Managers Terry and Angela are very friendly and helpful. No charge for washing-drying in the laundry except if you want washing powder which is $2 per load.Weather was drizzly while we were there so the free foxtel movies/programs were helpful to fill in some time although there is still plenty to see/do on GOR regardless of the weather. Free offroad secure parking but no pool/playground but beach and many playgrounds are minutes away. The only downside is that they charge Adult price for all children regardless of how young they are-most other places do not charge for under 3 year olds. They make up for this though with the way the room is serviced everyday.
Would definitely reccommend to anyone wanting to stay in Lorne.

We arrived in Lorne during our honeymoon roadtrip. Not having booked any hotels in advance, we checked out the Best Western.
We were pleasantly surprised when they had rooms available for AUD 99. (I think the rates in high season may well be over AUD 200!)
The room itself looked like a four star hotel room and was very clean. It had a kitchenette with fridge and microwave and free movies on the TV. The prices for drinks in the fridge were incredibly cheap - around AUD 15 for a bottle of wine! - probably no dearer than the supermarkets. The bathroom had a large shower, sink and toilet, but er no bath! I think the rooms were upgraded sometime during 2006.
Contrary to another review of this hotel, I found the guy on reception to be very friendly and helpful. He even offered advice on which routes to take when driving back to Melbourne. It may well have been a different person though!
The hotel is located at the northern end of town. You can walk to the main street and beaches with ease.
In our opinion Lorne is the best town on the great ocean road coast - definately the prettiest, with mountain views behind the town.
Overall a great hotel and good location.
