With a new baby, we always over prepare. Arrived one hour early hoping to check in, but understanding if room wasn't ready. So we did our thing until it was ready at 2pm. 2:05 came around, then said to wait another 5-10 mins. BUT, offered 2 free drinks at the bar. Well played. We went back at 2:20pm, still not ready. Now we were upset. especially when they were well aware we were there 1 hour early at the lobby with a now cranky baby. But then they approached minutes later, and offered a free bottle of wine for our wait. It was the gesture we were after as customers. The value of the gifts were irrelevant. They did this very well and made the start to our holiday very positively memorable. Things to look out for. - Key card doesn't work properly, we were a bit angry seeing we had to wait so long only to not get into our room. So ask the friendly staff how to use it properly as its quite old. - We asked for a cot and they gave us a sofa bed. We just called up and they fixed it immediately. Do communicate well to them and you will get what you want. Its so close to the beach. Will highly recommend. Well done Mantra Lorne! We will be back!

Lorne is just a wonderful spot and the Mantra is right in the middle of it which makes it perfect for a short stay

Loved the room where it’s so quiet and looking out at the park was so peaceful . And it’s only across the road to the beach . Close to all shops too. Loved it would have loved to stay for another night but wasn’t sure if we were happy with this resort and we should have.

Room and balcony was not very clean. Furniture and interior was out of date and not in good condition. Not worth the price and doesn't match the rating.

Garden resort room -a did not have allocated parking something that should have been mentioned with my broken leg and child this made it inconvienient..and check in staff unable to help. Staff were good that at least made our little stay manageable. Room was motel quality /outdated or even worse.. Resort sounds flash for tennis/pool facilities and it ends there..

Great resort in an excellent setting. Our's is perhaps a one off experience but our room was not made up properly on arrival and very little in the way of apology was offered. Bin was not empty from the previous guest and their dirty dishes were still in the dishwasher. The bathroom had no soap or hand towels provided.
