Mantra Lorne
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Lorne
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

We booked on-line an ocean view room. What we got was a room that technically was an ocean view. However would need binoculars to see it. The reality is that there are only a handful of true ocean view rooms in the room blocks closest to the beach. Therefore it is not worth paying extra for the ocean view privilege. Apart from that the rooms are clean and good. The staff are friendly and it is well located.

Stayed: August 2014, traveled as a couple

Nice property in a great location with beach frontage. It's a reasonable hotel but it's ageing, the restaurant isn't particularly good and the pool area isn't quite the selling point we'd expected. It's a 3.5 star hotel by most standards (not the 4.5 stars the Mantra claim).

I am a regular to Mantra Lorne and I keep coming back here because of the location and grounds which are stunning. The rooms are fine, clean and big enough although there is always something not quite right, tv doesn't work, smoke alarm beeping etc. The service is friendly most of he time and as I am only ever here for 2-4 days at a time, the fact rooms are unserviced is ok (although for the price you may expect serviced rooms and I personally think stretching to 7 days is a little long). You often can't park close to your unit and in summer the parking is sparse. But I do feel at home there and continue to return when I can get there. Breakfast is great and when you step out onto the beach without really having to cross a road, you forget the other bits.

Very quiet resort (we requested a quiet room), overlooking the beach. The room itself was modern and sufficiently clean. The restaurant was a big disappointment, but in fairness, it was explained that they had a brand new chef. It was expensive and the only vegetarian meal was unavailable. Plenty of other local food choices around.

Room Tip: Request ocean view room

What a beautiful location - even in winter. The beach and surrounds are beautiful. This is a good starting point for the Great Ocean Road. My room was comfortable and, for the most part, well maintained. There was some grout starting to come away from the tile on the wall near the bath and I couldn't figure out how to get the air-condiitoner to stay on a temperature that wasn't 18 degrees (easier just to leave it turned off) but all in all a very pleasant stay. My room had a nice view over the lawn - and also a glimpse of the ocean. Breakfast was very substantial with a good range of hot and cold food. Staff at reception were very firendly, helpful and efficient.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms (mostly those at the back of the hotel) don't have car parking, which can make...
