A great place to totally unwind. Fabulous, well appointed and comfortable/spacious room, with everything you need; including a spa, so total relaxation. Great views overlooking the ocean. Location ideal and a good base for lots of great walks around Lorne. Peaceful and tranquil setting. Hosts just lovely (Cheryl and Karen). Will book again on our next trip to Lorne.

This accommodation was the best ever, it is large, quite and spotless. Cannot fault this accommodation They are within walking distance to the beach front and restaurants. The host was exceptional and could not do enough for us. Worth more than we were charged.

Friendly and informative check in from Karen. Immaculate and modern. Great bed, great linen. Bathroom large, lovely towels. We were fortunate to have a downstairs apartment, with large corner windows. We were able to see beautiful sunrises through the trees. There is only a microwave for cooking, however bbqs are under shelters on the beach and this is where we...

I stayed here with my husband for 3 nights and wish I could have stayed longer. My room had glimpses of the ocean from the balcony through the eucalyptus trees. I really did love the intermingling smells of the gum leaves and ocean whenever I went outside. There were many hungry sulphur-crested cockatoos in the nearby trees looking for tasty...

Karen is a conscientious thoughtful host was runs a superb spot. She provides picnic baskets, BBQ utensils and great information for the Great Ocean Road. The beds are comfortable and linens exquisite.

The lady at the front desk Karen is lovely and really made us feel welcome, ended up with a room upgrade and we were really happy with the result. We stayed in the eskine wing and it was nice, although no privacy if you want to have your curtains open to let the light in. The window/outside door opens up...

We were looking for accommodation for 6 couples travelling to Lorne for a wedding. The person who answered our call at Chatby Lane was extremely helpful in working out how to best meet our requests - we knew next to nothing about Lorne and we needed a couple of apartments that were walking distance to the Lorne Hotel. Even to...

I was on staying on the 1st floor of the apartment. I don't like writing this type of review, but I felt it was a glamorized motel and regretted not getting back to Melbourne earlier. My room consisted of brick walls with taupe color paint over it and old carpeting. I felt the value was no good- paying AUS$185 for...

We knew we wouldn't have a view because we booked late so try to ask for a 1st floor room when you book if you can. The room was big and comfortable but not what you'd call 'luxury' as per the sign when you arrive. Friendly, discreet service and away from the busy main street but handy enough to everything....

The development is located about a 20 min walk from the main front and restaurants in Lorne. Great welcome upon arrival and shown to room with informative talk on the facilities and local restaurants etc. Rooms are very spacious and nicely furnished although the bathrooms have a slightly dated feeling with corner spa bath and over shower. Nice crisp bed...
