Basic room, was ok for an overnight stay. Don't think I would stay again. Difficult to get luggage up stairs, no mattress protector on bed, but the staff was very friendly & it was in a great position.

Just be aware the motel is on multiple floors so request a ground floor unit if stairs are an issue. It was clean and well equipped with your own parking space. It was within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants, we enjoyed our short stay.

Just 1 night here during our stop ... Staff very professional & helpful. Rooms are spartan & quite comfortable: clean, spacious & sufficiently bright. Price could be reviewed by decreasing abt 10/15 AUD... Recommended for vacations to be spent in this area.

It might look gloomy and grim from the outside, but this is a clean and comfortable motel located just on the outskirts of Lorne as you approach the town. Just a few yards from a Food Works supermarket and a short walk to the beach, the Coachman Inn is ideal for a short stay or weekend break. Free parking and...

I don't think I have ever stayed in a motel any cleaner than this. The motel is relatively basic but our room was very comfortable and it had everything that you might possibly require. The staff at Reception were very friendly and willing to help with advice on places to eat and things to see in the area. If you...

The motel offers basic rooms, free parking and free wifi. The guy at the reception was exceptionally friendly and gave us some helpful tips. It is conveniently located just 100 meters away from the main street of the town.

No lifts, so if you've big luggage it'll be hard to get to the upper floors. Fairly convenient for the town centre. Parking is tight, so best not to have a massive car. No heating in the room, so you might get cold in winter, though they supply extra blankets. Other room facilities are OK eg bathroom, kitchen area.
