We went to the Coachman at the end of August and it was really quiet, apart from the fridge and heater which were a bit noisy. It was nice and clean, with a very helpful receptionist who gave us a few hints about where to go for meals. Good service, we were happy with our stay. It does look very...

I stayed here for a business trip and it definitely felt like a vacation. Since the motel is situated in a very beautiful landscape. The service was excellent since the staff were extremely friendly. Overall, i had a comfortable and pleasant stay, I would definitely bring my family to stay here another time.

Haven't been that disappointed by any motel on the way from Bendigo/Ballarat/Grampians/Warrnambool to the Great ocean road. By far the most expensive one, they pretend to have rooms for 3 people which is measured against the third bed just a ridiculous pretention. The heater/Aircon is disturbingly loud, you literally get a headache from it. Plus the fridge was extremely loud...

Stayed at this place on new years eve so I can't speak for the prices any other time of the year but it was expensive for what it is. Room was just a typical motel room, bed in the middle, a small table off to the side and a couch. It did have a kitchenette which was handy for storing...

Found this place on a Groupon deal, was such a great offer for two nights worth. The place was clean, spacious and quiet, and had a HDMI enabled tv. The inn manager (Ashwol or Ashwin??) was really helpful.

Whilst staying in Melbourne we took a trip to Lorne by train and bus. I suppose this hotel is more of a motel and at first glance a little disappointing, but adequate for a couple of nights. It is situated next to a campsite so can be a little noisy if you want quiet. The staff were great, very friendly...

The room was clean, but quite dated. Located right next door to a camp ground there are a couple restaurant options close by and the main street is a short walk. The neighbourhood cockatoos are very noisy in the morning.

There wasn't anything bad about this place. The room Was a good size. Had everything we needed. Everything was a bit outdated. But your not staying in Lorne to spend your time in your room. So it didn't matter. The bed was comfy. The tv worked. Kitchenette was all we needed. Had all the plates and cutlery that we needed....

We arrived in Lorne around lunchtime and phoned the accomodation to see if they could get us in a little bit early, their check-in time is 2pm. They told us that if we required check-in early there would be a $25 surcharge. So we decided to do some town sight seeing in the meantime. When we did check-in they wanted...

The room was small, the bed hard, the bathroom looked cheap, the shower only accessible by stepping up and into the spa!! The room was not particularly secure and it overlooked a noisy caravan park. Poor location, not beach front, but creek front. I can't think of anyone I'd recommend it to Every thing was booked so this was last...
