Great location and nice place but the room was very dirty on arrival. Rubbish from previous occupants was still in the room and there was an old pair of jocks in the bedroom. We had major concerns about hygiene in the room.

We stayed in a resort room that was on the beach side on the ground floors. Check-in was quick which was great. The keys we had for our room didn't work at first but staff were great with a quick fix. The room itself was a bit disappointing. Cobwebs present, my towel had a yellow stain on it and all...

Best place to be on the Lorne Pier to Pub weekend, and any other time for that matter..One of those rare places that are on the beach, no roads to cross..Excellent outdoor area for brekky, lunch and dinner. Didn't have to get in the car for 4 days till we departed.

Our last experiance at the Mantra Lorne 12 months ago was not the very best. However this stay was excellent, booked into the heritage wing we stayed in one of the original rooms from the old Erskine Guest house. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. The bed was excellent and we both slept well. Hotel staff were very...

I get that it's busy during school holidays but the standard you come to expect from mantra just wasn't there on this visit. Our room was dirty and needed to be cleaned and there was a huge pile of cardboard in the foyer right outside our room. Beyond that everything else was on par, but not outstanding.

We stayed in a dual key apartment which had great views of the water and garden. We all loved the activities and the close proximity to everything Lorne. Only criticism is the Garden Bar wasn't open once despite the great weather and the Larder menu didn't look great so we didn't eat there at all.

Great location and facilities for families. Staff friendly and helpful Pool is added bonus if not beach weather. Breakfast included in deal is a great start to day. Missing the pancakes this year! We stay every year and will continue to do so. We love the Heritage room's.
