Good stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Ray S. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a good three nights with you but was a little disappointed that without requesting there was no room service to change towels or replenish coffee, tea and milk. Other than that we enjoyed the location, the service at both reception and the restaurant. Quality of breakfast food was very good we didn't use the restaurant for dinner.

Comfortable overall

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Denise Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was clean but has a stale smell, especially near the cupboards and toilet. Perhaps can look into freshening up the room. A bit pricey, considering it’s a bit dated. But overall, stay was comfortable enough

Fabulous location

Margaret M. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Booked through luxury escapes so happy with breakfast as well as vouchers for food and drinks at The Larder. Room was spacious and clean but oddly shaped and unfortunately we were at the end of the Heritage building so overlooked wall and/ or balcony of other rooms. However all meals on site were great, pool is beautiful and beach walks are fabulous. Husband made good use of tennis court. Our friends upgraded to a unit so had an entertainer's space - nice for us.

Ken H. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location and friendly staff, happy hour and dinners were great, unfortunately the accommodation is looking pretty tired externally and in entrances and lift areas however room was adequate and unfortunately breakfast buffet was a little lacking.

Avoid the Heritage Hotel Room of the Mantra Lorne.

Alex Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

The Heritage Hotel Room building is quite old and not maintained properly up to the standard expected of the Mantra brand. The carpet is worn out, dirty and smelly. The room door, heater and bathroom windows were all dirty and with mould. The bathroom configuration is odd with the wash basin outside of the bathroom and next to the bed. This is so different compared to the photos in the promotional sale package, basically, it is misleading.

Dear Alex, Thank you for sharing your feedback from your recent stay, and can I take this opportunity to apologise that on this occasion we were not able to provide you with a memorable getaway in Lorne. We do have an array range of rooms and apartments around the resort, from the Heritage Room up to 2 Bedroom Apartments, and so to align your booking with your next visit, I encourage you to contact our Reservations team directly so we can find you the most suitable room that suits to your liking. Again we are sorry for any inconvenience caused throughout your stay. I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards, William Ng Front Office Manager

Rose Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Just a 3 night short stay, perfect location for beach walks, shopping activities and amazing food choices. Delicious buffet breakfast daily, it was very busy even after 9am, but extra dining spaces were open. Dinner at the Larder restaurant was excellent, steak and sides just divine. Resort Room was located on the ground floor which was very convenient but does not give any privacy to the outside area ….the patio opening doors were lovely for fresh air. The room had a great king bed with extra pillows, a lovely dining setting and comfy chair also. Updated bathroom with nice fittings however really lacks towel rails or hooks for your towels. Excellent range of crockery n cutlery also glassware. Heating on cold nights was very efficient. There was very little noise at night or early morning which made it very relaxing. Wonderful pool and spa with towels provided. Lots of activities to do onsite plus being beach front gives lots of opportunities to enjoy the fresh air. We will definitely stay again.

Good short stay

leelawadee TripAdvisor review

The best thing about Mantra Lorne is the location, you can walk to restaurants and shops and step right out onto the beach. The property has a nice lawn area next to the restaurant for drinks and games. We have stayed at this property previously both times in the same type of room a 2 bedroom dual key apartment. The problem with this is that the apartment has tableware settings for 4 and the room has zero in total 6 persons can stay in this accommodation but tableware only allows for 4 (we had 5) just as well that I brought my picnic setting with me. The cookware is very limited no egg flip, salad bowl or serving plates these few items are surely basic. For the 2nd stay in a row the couch was vey dirty and could do with a good clean especially considering this doubles as a bed. The table service in the restaurant is good but let down by the slow kitchen service. We ordered a shared meal but should have gone with individual choices. In summary it's the location that keeps me coming back

Dear leelawadee, Thank you for taking the time to provide your positive feedback, it’s fantastic to hear you enjoyed your stay with us again, and made the most of our amazing location to enjoy your getaway. I do also appreciate your feedback regarding in room items, and will review your key points with our operational team to ensure all is consistent across all apartments. I do hope this did not cause too much inconvenience during your time with us. Thank you again for your feedback, and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future to Mantra Lorne. Kind regards, Cameron Baker General Manager
