Spent a few nights in Lorne, and had dinner at the Lorne Hotel. Arrived on time and were promptly seated. Ordering for meals and drinks was though a QR code and the menu appeared on the phone. Ordered duck spring rolls $14; Indonesian seafood curry $48; and battered local whiting $38. The curry was served with a coconut rice, the whiting meal had 3 pieces of fish, along with plenty of chips and a small side salad. The pricing was certainly at the high end for bistro meals, but the meals were tasty and the servings were a reasonable size. The bistro looks directly towards the ocean and it would be a busy place in summer.

We booked this hotel days before staying and the only room available on the booking site was a king deluxe aka bridal suite. The room was extremely large, with a separate sitting area - well couch and coffee table, a very comfortable bed and a view of the beach and main street from the large picture window. The bathroom was very well renovated and all was very clean. We would have expected, when paying $319.00 a night, to have more than shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided. Both tissues and toilet paper were very poor quality and a shower cap and body lotion would have been appreciated. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Probably wouldn't choose to stay there again although as the hotel has just been sold, this review is probably irrelevant.

Visited on Easter Monday with additional 15% service charge so no excuses because they were busy. I ordered a Chicken Parmigiana with chip & salad, normally a safe option, my wife ordered the gluten free Fried Gummy Shark chips and salad option as listed on the menu. We were then advised the gummy shark would be grilled, not fried, and served with mashed potato and broccolini as the gluten free option. Not happy as this completely changed the meal but accepted as only 2 other gluten free options. My Parma came first and I was immediately suspicious as it came in a perfect heart shape, just like the prepared fare you purchase from Wishbone Chicken and like shops. My fears were confirmed when I took the first mouthful to find the breadcrumbs were all soggy, the parma having obviously been oven or induction warmed and not cooked correctly. My wife's gummy shark then came served with chips and salad, when we asked the server if the chips were gluten free she immediately replied no and took the plate away. When she eventually returned the chips had been replaced with suspiciously stodgy mashed potato but still with salad and not the advised broccolini. I have seen some strange combinations but never mashed potato and salad. However as we were hungry we battled through eating what we could, but both left significant amounts of food. When asked how was the meal I spoke truthfully and expressed my dissatisfaction, so I was advised to speak to the manager to 'see what we could do'. I was then approached by a woman who did not introduce herself until I advised I was waiting for the manager to be told that is me. When I explained my concerns I was asked 'Did you eat it?' I was then told I shouldn't have eaten it and I couldn't have my money back. When I said I was not asking for that the manager advised she would not charge for our drinks. I could not in all honesty recommend anything about this reataurant.

It was great to be together with our family after covid restrictions and the Lorne Hotel Bistro didn't disappoint.The three parmigiana/schnitzel eaters were content...juicy chicken and nice dressing on the salad.Teenage girl very happy with her large bowl of spag bol....staff didn't mind making that a double size kids serve.Generous seafood in the Thai curry and great flavour and genuinely fresh flake,chunky and white in the fish and chips meal.Wonderful meals all round.Thank you staff and chef.

We stayed, drank & ate here Our unit was perfectly as described, immaculately located & styled, bonus of housekeeping every day. Great facilities, comfortable & exactly enough. On site parking was easy & convenient. We also ate/drank here. The spaces were fantastic, so many flexible areas so hang out in & some live music as well. The view was great. Unfortunately, the biggest let down for Lorne Hotel was the customer service. I was expecting big crowds at the beer garden ect... & was surprised when we walked in & it was noticeably quiet & empty. Out of the 5 staff we interacted with, 1 may have seemed slightly happy to be there. They all did their job but were borderline rude, unenthusiastic & clearly not committed to the customer experience. I hope this isn’t a common vibe around this place because it has so much potential to be a massive hotspot for patrons & business. After eating/drinking here, we decided that the prices were not cheap enough to deal with the lack of vibe in the beer garden & did not return for our entire trip. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the unit.
