Great location and staff, tired hotel

Review of Mantra Lorne
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Jan 2024
Very convenient location right on the beautiful beach, and across from all the shops. Great helpful staff.

Rooms themselves are fairly small, old and tired. For example, timber windows have bits of timber falling off. Skylights and lifts look like they've never been cleaned. Kitchen knives completely blunt. And worst of all, aircon in our room did not work meaning we had to spend hours moving our whole 2 bed apartment to another one. Even the new room had 1 aircon not working that well.

Lift not working, our room was on the 3rd floor, the air conditioner was leaking down the wall, which stained the wall. Bed was lumpy, pillows uncomfortable, decor was dated. Staff were friendly, but the room was not serviced daily, I had to request fresh towels, milk and tea. Breakfast was mediocre at best, and we had to pay extra for barrista coffee. I would not recommend this hotel and would not stay again. The standard of the hotel room did not reflect the price. Poor form. However, the view was spectacular.

Thanks for reviewing the Mantra Lorne, your comments are much valued as it helps us to focus on improvements into the future. I did wish to apologise that there was a lift breakdown during your stay, and the apartment and breakfast did not meet your expectations.
We are working on improvements to these areas and we will continue to respond to the priorities as requested by our guests.

Kind Regards
Edwin

This hotel is not cheap and we would expect a lot more for $400+ per night for a one bedroom .

Room was dirty when we arrived , holes in towels and cooktop was broken.

The mantra simply have to do better.

Bring your own cutlery, pots and pans as the ones provided are not sufficient and dirty

Decided to stay in a Heritage room, was given room 307. Where to begin?
The bathroom was a joke, the toilet seat was almost up against the glass shower door so unless you’re very short and super thin the only way to sit on the toilet is sideways. The shower tiles were mouldy, window sills dusty and dirty. The washbasin is inside the bedroom. Sheets and doona cover were clean but the doona was stained. House keeping was supposed to be daily, we complained the room wasn’t serviced and in all fairness reception did apologise and offered a bottle of wine. Breakfast was included and a good selection offered. The only reason we gave this 3 stars is the exceptional service from reception and breakfast staff who were polite and obliging and the location. All in all a very disappointing 3 day visit.

Room tip: Don’t stay in the ‘Heritage’ rooms.

Mantra needs to change their out dated furniture and when paying a handsome amount of money for a night I think a king size bed is not a whole lot to ask for, 10 nights in a double bed, not ideal. Cleaning has become quite slack over the years too.

Exceptional faultless stay. My favourite place to stay in Victoria. Guaranteed easy holiday. Great facilities and amazing location. Customer service is warm, friendly and personal. The ability to continue to use facilities and the front lounge area post check out makes the holiday extend over the last day. We love Lorne Mantra and can't wait to return.

Room tip: Join the rewards program, call the hotel directly to book your stay. Use the hotel facilities after check out.
