Have stayed here in October 2016 and was very very impressed and we plan to stay again very soon and can't wait. The owners are lovely and it was a perfect place to stay with our dogs. Was easy to walk down into lorne. The walk back up is a little tuff but if you enjoy a nice walk it's...

I found Lorne by accident and so glad we did. I was on way to exploring the Great Ocean Road and wanted a place to stay over night on my way back. We turned late late in the evening and didn't appreciate where we were. We were met by John, he showed us to a beautiful studio room, it had...

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at this beautiful little b&b. We were a family of 4 so we had the place for ourselves. The bedrooms are very nicely decorated, all very comfortable and really clean. Big, modern bathrooms. The owner, Sue, was very nice, chatty and helpful. She left tea, coffee and sweets for us in the little kitchenette....

We wish we could have stayed much longer. This was our first stop along the Great Ocean Road. We were overwhelmed by the number of exotic birds surrounding the porch. As folks have said the accommodations are very comfortable. It's close to town where we bought some steaks and BBQ'd them on the porch. It's a few blocks below Teddy's...

This turned out to be a terrific BnB, comprising two separate ensuite rooms, with a spacious attractive lounge half a floor below to be shared with another set of guests. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for two nights, but that wasn't what made it so great. Our host Sue was a joy -- warm, friendly,...

This BnB was a suggestion from the Lorne Information Centre. It is away from the busy main street and is on a roundabout, hence the name. There are two separate rooms with ensuites in the front part of this lovely timber home. They share the use of a well furnished large lounge which has a gas log fireplace. We were...

Around About Lorne is fantastic. The hosts are so kind and willing to help in any way. The rooms are comparable to a 4-star hotel. The in-room jacuzzi is fabulous as well as the fireplace in the living room. It was very quiet and homey at night. We were lucky in that we had the whole place to ourselves. Not...

I was in Lorne to check it out for an upcoming family trip to the Great Ocean Road. I stayed at Around About Lorne for one night. It was quiet, cozy and clean. I appreciated the attention to detail (filtered water, fresh milk for my tea, chocolates) and the separate common room. Not having a car for this visit, I...

As another reviewer experienced my wife and I had the B&B to ourselves. The layout of it is such that there are two bedrooms (with cooking facilities) that share a common living area. The bedrooms are comfy - the linens are nice and there's electric blankets, flat screen TV etc. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We didn't cook...

This was a lovely place to stay. Susan was also so welcoming. Even though we only rented one studio, because there was no one else in the cottage we had the whole place to ourselves, which included a spa bath, fireplace, dining area and living room. It was quaint, comfortable, peaceful, but also close to Lorne's main street and beach....
