“Just beautiful”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Breathtaking view, excellent service from Kim, Paki and all their staff (well done guys). Amazing value for money for such a great location. Close to all eateries, supermarket and public transport. Highly recommended

We first stayed here 10 years ago and loved it. We again stayed here at easter and were disappointed. The cabins need some TLC - cobwebs on walls and ceilings and paint and lino missing in the bathroom. Great spot and the kids loved the birds.

My friends and I stayed at the beautiful Great Ocean Road Cottages over the summer and it like a home away from home! good hospitality and customer service is hard to come by these days, but we were looked after by the lovely mannagment. Puki and Kim are extreemly friendly and were always very helpful with any inquiry we had! the cottages were almost like something from a dream, located amongst the trees and amazing wild life including coalas and cockatoos! overall The great Ocean Road Cottages is with out a date one of the best places we have stayed and i would definetly recomend it.
Thanks for having us Kim and Puki and we will be coming back next year!

We had booked this cottage in England as we were looking to take our daughter away for a few nights when we visited her in Melbourne, We were not disappointed. We arrived late on Sunday evening and Paky was very obliging and helped all week with any queries we had. The cottage was ideal for a small family and contained all the amenities that were needed. It is also an ideal base for exploring the surrounding areas and we managed to visit the 12 Apostles, Angelsea and Port Campbell using Lorne as our base.
In the end we extended our stay by 2 nights to make it a full week's stay.
Thank you Kim & Paky for making our week along the Great Ocean Road so memorable.

I have been bringing tours to Lorne and staying in the great ocean rd cottages for the past two years! On arrival, Paki and Kim give the group a warm and personable welcome which aligns with the wonderful atmosphere they have created at the cottages! over the past 2 years I have always found the house keeping to be exceptional! Paki and Kim are always around to answer questions or supply extra blankets when needed.

The overseas travelers love being able to get up close and personal with the Australian native birds- and I enjoy waking up to the sounds of birds as aposed to my alarm clock!!

On my last trip, one of the girls on the tour was very sick with the flu- we had only paid for tent accommodation but Paki insisted on giving her his last remaining cottage he cleaned and made it up for her to ensure her flu did not escalate!

I will always book accommodation at the cottages and highly recommend them to everyone looking for a clean, comfortable, friendly and accommodating destination with an Australian native bush surrounding.

I stayed at Great Ocean Road Cottages for 5 nights with my girlfriend and I was really happy with my time there.

It's in a really good location, about a 2 minute walk to the supermarket and a 5 minute walk to the town centre/beach. Packy, the person I dealt with, was a really nice person and really helpful. Someone had stolen the portable stovetop from our room and after telling Packy, he quicky got us another.

The room was spacious so seeing as there was just the two of us, we had plenty of room. The kitchen included a portable stove top, a microwave and a fridge. There was also a public kitchen but we didn't really use it. The room itself had a decent sized flatscreen TV, a DVD player and air conditioning. Personally I really liked the balcony, it was really nice out there in the late afternoon and if you put food out, the cockatoos would come and eat it. The price was quite reasonable seeing as there was only the two of us in a room which could sleep four people.

Overall I was very pleased with my stay at Great Ocean Road Cottages and hopefully I will return soon.

Room Tip: Room number 10 has a great view

Four of us, two boys and two girls, stayed there for 2 nights on the 8th feb,2012. We couldnt find our camping ground, as night was falling, and weather detoriating so we had to look for close accomodation last minute. From the entrance gate, to the bathroom of our cottage, everything is clean and organised just like a mini resort. Amazing live-in management couple. They treated us like we are childhood friends. Nice, beautiful nature scenes from the balcony, with lots of parrot like looking birds. 5 mins walk to all the cafes, bars, shops and the beach. Perfect location, 2 minutes walk to information centre, 15 minutes drive to the erskine water fall. The cottage has got an amazing cosy interior. Had the best time of our life, my two british friends liked it so much and we going there again before they leave. Thank you Mr and Mrs manager for making our stay a memorable one. Many thanks from Mesh, kristian and the girls. We will see you soon.
