The Lorne Hotel has a great outdoor area with amazing views, so I don't want to discount it completely - but - the food was below ordinary. Like, really bad. And the staff member who cleared our table could not have been less interested. Maybe a place for a couple of drinks on a sunny day. Would not eat here...

Just stopped here with friends for a drink or two. Service was great. Bartender made some great drink recommendations, especially cocktails. Can't complain with an astonishing view and service to match.

Wow the Lorne Hotel is in the best location, great views with great food/drinks...when you actually get service. Much to my amusement I watched my husband be the only person at the bar who could not get any service from the staff who were on their phones , glanced up then spoke to each other before then going to clear...

Dear Anne, Thank you for your feedback. This justifies my discussion yesterday with my managers around staff needing to focus more on customers than spending time completing cleaning tasks or talking amoungst themselves during quieter times. I hope that you will return and see a marked difference in our customer service. Kind Regards, Paul Upham Venue Manager

The meals are so over priced for a pub it's ridiculous. If you're paying a premium price for a pub meal you would think the quality would be great, but NO! Lorne Hotel is just rushed, unprofessional, low quality food that costs the earth. Disgusted!

Hi Jason, I'm sorry that you didn't have a pleasant experience at the hotel. We pride ourselves on providing high quality food.

It's always difficult with reviews where their is no real information either if it's negative or positive as to...

On holidays in Wye River and drove to Lorne for a meal out - chose Lorne Hotel. Looked like a nice setting but were extremely disappointed with meals and service. I got a very overpriced basic salad with lamb as an extra - 2 small pieces of lamb.... My husband ordered off the specials board - salmon with pea risoni...

Went here a couple of days after the pier to pub with my brother from overseas and family. We ordered $250 worth of food and then tried to order some cocktails only to be told the "cocktail bar" was shut and the boys behind the bar couldn't make them (they were not busy). I spoke to the manager and she...

We arrived in Lorne mid afternoon after driving from Apollo Bay and we decided to stop in at the Lorne Hotel for a "coldie" and a chill out. We sat up on the deck looking over the bay and enjoy our cold drinks and the sunshine. Service was good and the drinks cold - we didn't eat here

Went here for dinner with the family and had a good pub meal. The herb/cheese bread was tasty. Mains had spag Bol, crumbed calamari and chicken parmigiana with all dishes hitting the mark. Good pub grub at good prices and would recommend going for a visit. Their beer garden is also a great place to visit!

My wife and I stayed in the King room over looking the water, what a view and what a room. its a must for those couples looking for the best. the only down side was that there was no spa. Make sure you have the sea food plater. The Hotel has a great space up stairs in or out side...
