Bedding uncomfortable. Bathroom surface clean, but needs deep clean, sofa bed not clean. Upon opening food fell out and food found underneath. Kitchenette very good.

Good location, walking distance to the beach and Lorne shops. Friendly staff, the property is due for a make over. You get what you pay for.

Good location BUT the room wasn’t clean, the spa didn’t work and we ran out of hot water while filling the spa.

For the modest price this is a great place to stay; within walking distance of the main street and restaurants, as well as the river and main beach.

Great location. Very close to shops, restaurant and the beach. Room was clean but with a few cracks here and there. Enough plates and cutlery. Not much coffee or tea or milk. It worked for us because we just needed a bed and a shower.

Was a convenient place to stay for great ocean road marathon, older room, but was happy to see a microwave and cutlery and crockery. Quality of the room wasn't a major concern as spent most of my time out of the room exploring lovely lorne.
