Love Lorne and the Mantra

Having stayed at the Mantra many times over the years, (daughter had her wedding there 20 years ago), still enjoy location and service provided. Although this time our room did not have a view, windows had bushes outside so no view.

Fantastic location with excellent facilities

Great location, beachfront access and adjacent to the shops and excellent eateries. Staff were all professional, friendly and very helpful. They have great variety of services including pool/spa, tennis courts and mini golf. Scrumptious buffet breakfast and restaurant has delicious meals for dinner.
Rooms are tidy but could do with a revamp.

Perfect Location

Perfectly located over the road from the beach and Lorne Village! Lovely rooms with comfortable beds. Service is a little slow and it's not easy to get in touch with reception. We'd requested single beds in one room. Tried to call reception on the day to confirm, but couldn't get through, so sent an email with a reminder. On entering the room @ 4pm noticed request hadn't been fulfilled. Tried calling reception from the room, no answer. Walked up to reception to advise. At 9h30pm on our return from dinner they'd started making up the room with the two single beds.

A fabulous hotel in a superb location

We had a wonderful stay at the Mantra Hotel, Lorne. The welcome on arrival was very warm and friendly, the room was sparkling clean and very comfortable, the location of the hotel for both the beach and local shops and restaurants is second to none. Can highly recommend.

Long Weekend Away

Got a great deal from travel online for a heritage room at the Mantra in Lorne.
Room was spacious with a balcony and great to have fridge, toaster, kettle etc. I was even able to comfortably put my toddlers porta cot in the room as still have heaps of room. Downside was the flights of stairs to get into the room. No elevators. It was a shame that the restaurant wasn't open for lunch or diner (just breakfast) as this would have added to the atmosphere. Other facilities were all amazing and location to beach & cafes perfect, would stay again

Great location right on the beach, short walking distance to shops and restaurants.

We had a very comfy stay at Mantra Lorne. Bathroom was big and spacious, shower in the bath was a minor problem getting in/out, as a very deep bath. It was lovely and quiet of a night. The staff were extra nice and helpful. The only thing I could fault was having to climb up and down the stairs as we were on the top floor in the Heritage building. Otherwise a lovely three day stay.

Lovely weekend away

This was a great deal and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Mantra Lorne. The room was a little small and strangely configured but enough. The air conditioner took up a lot of space and seemed redundant for the season. On the whole lovely staff and a perfect location to enjoy the local attractions. Thoroughly recommend.

A fabulous break

We had a lovely time at the Mantra, Lorne. Staff were really helpful. Beach was so close. Only negative was the shower was over a deep bath and it was difficult to get in and out. Otherwise the perfect break

Beautiful location

Great location, Mantra does not disappoint however Heritage rooms does mean old. It has been refurbished but you can see the cracked walls and age in the building. Aside from that, nice place to stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was spacious. I will definitely opt for the modern side. My shower was over the very large bathtub so quite the effort to get in and out of with a bad back. Pool and spa are indoors so great to use all year round. Very family friendly.

Above and beyond service

The property has so much to do and is in a perfect location.
You are seriously spoiled for choice when it comes to food and there is even a Craft Brewery, Jetty Road, 5 minute walk down the street.
Customer Service was amazing. We had a broken glass about 11pm one night and they sent a cleaner straight away to help us.
We would definitely go back.

Lovely Views of Ocean.

The aspect of the room was amazing (looking out to the ocean) & the box window extensions have been thoughtful & effective.
Although my studio suite was well appointed, it needs painting.
The stickers on the louvres also make it look second-rate, but the room was spotlessly clean. The bed linen (including pillows) was great.
I had recently had a total knee replacement but I was able to climb into the large spa bath to use the shower. However, it would be impossible for a person with a more permanent disability.
No doubt the hotel has already thought of this by providing other more suitable suites with better accessibility.

Great location,relaxing,comfortable apartment

Pleasant 3 night stay. Nice to have apartment with sunny balcony facing park and bush land for privacy. Some apartments not so private. Minimal but adequate cooking needs. Plenty of facilities, tennis, gym etc if wanted, but we enjoyed beach, walks, local cafes.

Really enjoyable

Buildings well maintained, grounds impecable, restaurant looked very inviting. Location perfect being very central, good choice of other cafes & restaurants.
One minor point - bedroom section quite conjested with 2 quite large chairs, portable air conditioner and very large bed. Difficult for 2 people to manoeuvre around and access wardrobe.

Perfect location and great facilities in Lorne

Perfect spot near the beach with an excellent array of available activities which we took advantage of during our stay. Tennis, putting green, lawn bowls and indoor pool. Room was nice but a little tired in need of minor repairs. Overall thought it was good value and a lovely location to walk in the evenings for great restaurants.

Nice place to stay

The room was very nice, no complaints, but suggestions are throw a couple of cushions on the lounge, a bit rigid without a cushion to lean on, and the tap handles couldn't be more annoying to use, apart from that was great :)
Julia on Reception was fantastic, several times.

Relaxing weekend

A comfortable place to stay in a great location. Beach, plenty of places to eat and shops to browse all on the doorstep. Tennis courts, giant chess, mini-golf within the resort grounds. Happy hour and music. Every precaution and adherence to COVID restrictions was apparent. The resort is dated but our room was comfortable, and the apartments look nice. Would go back again.

Lucky the stage level 4 restrictions were lifted....

You followed Covid19 protocols to a T. Limited servicing of the room was acceptable due to Covid19 protocols.
Very enjoyable stay. Location unbeatable. We will be back. Thank You!

COVID Friendly

The Mantra at Lorne was very COVID Friendly and the staff made our check in very easy and the room was so clean when we arrived, I wish my house was that clean. Whilst the room was an older style it was so comfortable and we will definitely be back. Thanks Mantra.

Another fabulous getaway!

Mantra Lorne staff and management have been fabuolus in proactively and creatively managing the complcations and restrictions of Vic Lockdowns due to Covid. We have stayed three times in the last year and couldn't fault the way in which they operate under these everchanging restrictions. When queues were long at check in they served a welcome glass of bubbles, when the dining restrictions meant fewer tables inside they opened an outdoor dining, when we were informed of lockdown No. three on our arrival last weekend they were calm and accomodating. Can't rate their staff high enough from Sam in room bookings to Ryan in reception and the back up they received from managment.
