Great Ocean Road Cottages
Ranked #4 of 22 Specialty Lodging in Lorne
Reviewed July 21, 2011

My girlfriend and I decided to have a girly week-end away.....some time out from the madness of Melbourne.
We ended up staying at the Great Ocean Road cottages and it was absolutely fabulous. The management were very friendly and really informative about what to do in the area...places to eat etc.
The cottages were gorgeous........I had the best night sleep! We felt like we were in the bush with the beautiful gardens, trees and bird life and the cottage was clean and cosy.
We simply left the car in our carspot and walked to the lorne shops and restaurants, drank good wine, ate good food thanks to the recomendation of the management and then strolled back to our cottage.
What a fantastic place for a get away. I can't wait to come back and bring my kids and husband for a family holiday.
Great accomodation and very reasonably priced.
Thanks for a wonderful stay :)

The new management in this place is professional, hospitable and willing to go the extra mile. This couple are friendly, attentive and the accommodation was beautifully clean and warm. The bed was firm and just right even for this goldilocks! I felt close to nature yet very comfortable. Looking over the tree tops should cost a lot but this was very reasonable. The management could not do enough for me. They were enthusiastic and constantly keeping an eye out and offering help. The above review must be a fake or written by someone who was full of bile about something else. Perhaps they stayed at another place and have mistaken it. i can't recognise any of the issues they talk about. Thank you very much to Great Ocean Road Cottages for a refreshing and lovely stay. I will be back.

We have been coming to these cottages for the past 8 years. This year they had a change of management and after a discussion with this new management before our arrival they said they wanted to fix all the issues previous management didn't deal with. When we arrived our car park out the front of our cottage was taken ( previous management made a point that everyone must park where their cottage is so that no one misses out) when we parked our car in a different spot, a man came out of no where (management) and with a very loud and rude voice asked us "what are you doing?" like we were doing something very wrong. When we explained, he just grunted and walked off. When we carried our luggage up the hill from the car to the cottage we opened the door to find a cottage that had not been cleaned. Cobwebs everywhere, dirt on the floors, mould in the bathrooms, un cleaned surfaces in kitchen and bathroom. Unfortunately after a couple of hours we lost our key, so we asked for a new one, well he made that out to be the worst thing that ever happened and instructing us that we better find it. During our stay one night we were walking back from a night out only to walk past the reception to see this man had fallen asleep with only a bathrobe on and you could see his you know what! On my last day I was packing my car and he again came from no where and yelled very loudly "OI,OI" I seriously thought I was in trouble (again) only to ask me if I lost a phone to my reply was no and he asked if I was sure? Then just walked off. When we came to hand back the key, he looked at it and realized it was a spare key and went over to the cupboard and saw the original key ( which we were happy to pay for as we had not found it) clearly they found it but didn't bother to say anything. He spend 5 minutes organizing the keys while I stood there along with a few other people. Might I add when I went to reception it was closed. Why would you close reception on check out time and especially after Easter weekend???? My mum wanted to tentatively book again incase we didn't get a spot on the camp ground (new place we have decided to book) well the booking computer wasn't turned on so he just got a price of paper wrote his and his wife's name on it and said you call me another day. Well you can completely forget it! You need to go back to school to learn manners and how to run a business properly!!!!
