Located at the end of the main street in Lorne, it is in a great location. All you need from budget accommodation: clean, secure and quiet. As I am money conscious, the bistro prices were outside my budget, but they are no more expensive than the other restaurants in town. Take note: Lorne is a"resort" town and many of the facilities and services reflect that in its prices, especially when compared to other regional towns. But there are several excellent bakeries and a supermarket providing great fresh produce, which is OK if you are staying only one or 2 nights. But to stay any longer I would be looking for accommodation with a kitchen.

Good room but in a large noisy and very busy hotel

A clean, spacious and comfortable room for 3 adults with adequate air-con, huge bathroom. Unfortunately the hotel was very busy with a conference and it was the school holidays so lots of families enjoying a very noisy disco in the open-air bar until late at night. Fortunately we were not able to hear much of this once inside our room and were not really disturbed by it. Didn’t eat in hotel. Would look for a smaller, quieter hotel though, if passing through Lorne again. Had an excellent breakfast in nearby cafe.

Quite old and a bit ratty. Washing machine and dryer a bonus. Bunk beds in second bedroom a bit sad.

Pros: Not much
Cons: We don't know where to begin
Neither of our rooms had adequate curtains, one window had no curtain at all and another the Venetian blind would not shut, which also had a bright Street light outside the window. The toilet cistern in one room would not stop running and despite repeated requests to staff nothing was done and the cistern ran all night. To compound our discomfort there were people running up and down the corridors and slamming doors all night. Also worth noting there was no way to securily lock the doors from the inside, you had to lock the door from the outside before closing it.

Budget hotel. Carpets are dirty. No wifi in the 2 bedroom units.
