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...

This is the first time that we have written a TripAdvisor review, however after our AMAZING stay at Chatby Lane, Lorne we felt that it was necessary. On arrival we were presented with amazing ocean views so close to the centre of town however away from the hustle and bustle. A perfect little retreat! The lady who checked us in,...

We stayed in a room called Deluxe Studio or Deluxe Spa and it was located on ground level therefore no stairs to climb with baggage. It was a spacious room with kitchenette. Hard mattress but nice pillows. Bathroom features a spa bathtup which doubles as shower. Since we are ,no-bathtub people' we would have preferred a separate shower instead of...

We stayed in the Chatby wing on the first floor and would definitely say they are the best rooms to have. The rooms are large and have Queen size beds that are very comfortable, the bathroom has a shower over the spa bath which may not be to everyone's liking but it is what it is. The usual amenities for...

When my husband and I arrived for a night we had to use a phone to contact the owner who was on the beach and explained to us how to find the room and that the keys were in the room. She did not bother to check with us later that everything was OK. On arrival we found a couple...

Great service, clean room with super comfortable bed. Great facilities in a gorgeous town. Staff were extremely helpful and lovely. Breakfast was simple but really tasty. We will definitely be coming back.
