“Pregnant Visitor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

I was visiting last weekend with a group of Girls for a Hens weekend - we had booked the Tents which are great - but because I am pregant Packy (the Manager) suggested I would be more comfortable (and it was safer under foot) to stay in one of the other rooms... He was extremely helpful and made sure that I was OK throughotu the weekend... The room was clean and the service was top class...
I was still able to enjoy the weekend with the girls - it was lovely ...

Room Tip: The tents are brilliant.. but the Cottages take the cake...

I booked double tents as my Hens wekend away as didnt want middle aged women to stay in dorms. We got full use of kitchen, bathrooms and great pressure in showers and what can I say PAKI!

Paki and his partner Kim run the show and what a greeting! Paki couldnt do enough to make us feel comfortable and even offered my pregnant friend a discounted room as it was a small walk to the tents and she needed to be close to a toilet.

The wildlife (and I dont mean the men at the disco) including the local Koala and the Cockatoos and King Parrots were amazing and any overseas traveller must stay here. I had stayed in the cottages twice before Paki ran the place and it has definately improved.

I highly recommend it and nothing was too much of an effort for Paki. I will return with my family and friends in a few months and have taken many brochures back to my owrk with me.

Thank you for making my Hens weekend so comfortable and memorable. Keep up the great work and the tents were amazingly comfortable. Thank You

Room Tip: Definately opt for tents and not dorms as you can stand in them and they also have lights and beds w...

Our fridge was playing up and when i mentioned it to the chap at the front desk, he said he would fix the problem,[it was too cold]. The next day a new fridge was delivered to our cottage,straight out of the box, and the old one taken away, no fuss at all. Great service...
we stayed there during the peak period, it was very busy ,and the management went out of their way to make our time there most enjoyable. Lorne is a very busy and noisy place in January, However the cottages are a great peaceful refuge, i slept for eleven hours and woke up feeling great,The kids can approach the staff , and they made a new friend with Henry,We were well looked after and a little bit spoiled,have already booked our next stay there in march. Cant wait Thankyou guys for a great holiday

My wife 77 (lover, companion and friend), my daughter 45 (adored and admired), my grandson 17 (cherished in wonder) and my son-in-law ? (respected and liked) all happily stayed at Great Ocean Road Cottages. We felt thoroughly spoiled. The wild bird life liked us and paid visits. Our abode was more than adequate for us - clean, modern yet homely with all mod cons including cooking gear and eating implements. The setting is idyllic and kept like a botanic gardens. It's an easy walk to the beach - I'm 76 so I'm not into mountain climbing or such heart-pumping pastimes. The shops are within coo-ee and are relaxed and friendly. Folks, what more could one want? As a boy my family holidayed in leaky tents or stayed in bush pubs where we slept top to tail. How lucky we are in Oz to have such a wondrous spot. Oh, and the other good part, the managers are human with an express desire to make your stay a happy and memorable one - or that's how my family found them.

I recently stayed here with a friend and it was overall one of the best times I've ever had. Fantastic location, only minutes from the beach and shops. The extremely friendly and helpful staff made my stay even more enjoyable. I couldn't believe how many cheeky cockatoos tried to steal my food, the wildlife was definately a great highlight of my stay. I was impressed by the fact that even though it was the busiest period in summer I was taken care of like I was the only person there. The facilities were kept consistantly and impressively clean at all times and provided me with everything I may have needed.
Kim and Paki were really amazing and made me feel at home straight away. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, all thanks to them! I will definately be coming back to stay again soon. If you're planning a trip to lorne definately don't overlook the great ocean road cottages, they provide an experience you're not going to find anywhere else. I had so much fun it was just incredible
Love you guys so much Kim & Paki
