Very welcoming service and a comfortable little cabin that's nicely appointed in a slightly minimalist Japanese style. Yummy breakfast in the quiet of the lush bush made it a very peaceful and indulgent stay.

Beautiful Space & Stay

My partner and I had the most magnificent stay. Secluded, private and immersed in natural surrounds. The Japanese interiors were authentic and extremely comfortable! The weather was cold but our room was warm and made us not want to leave. Gracious hosts and staff. Quality art in the gallery. We look forward to staying again! Really exceeded all expectations

Gorgeous tree house nestled into the bush

We had a wonderful stay at Qdos. Our room was nestled amongst the trees and impeccably clean and tastefully appointed. Our room was small, however this was not a concern due to the abundance of glass and views to nature. We were far enough from the hustle and bustle of Lorne to make it a relaxing getaway, but close enough for a morning walk to the beach (approx 20 minutes). Gillian, our host, was incredibly attentive - offering a glass of red and nibbles as we relaxed in front of the fire in the gallery. Breakfast was also included, as was coffee - and both of a quality that you would find in many great inner Melbourne cafes. All in all, a relaxing getaway for my husband and I and we will certainly visit again.

Amazing host, incredible location, sensory overloa

To be met by Gillian with such warmth and invitation was a delightful start to our night at Qdos. The treehouse was very authentically japanese, the sounds were overwhelmingly Australian. Visually Qdos inspires you to search and look further into what's around you, it implores you to resign yourself to the beauty offered. Breakfast was a lovely bonus, with a carefully crafted menu and delicious offerings. We are definitely heading back!

Fantastic except for bed

Excellent stay although the only criticism was the bed that had no support meaning each night we would drag mattress onto the floor to be comfortable. Otherwise a fantastic experience. Complimentary breakfast was top quality. Very friendly staff.
