Ocean Sun Apartments
Ranked #16 of 22 Speciality Lodging in Lorne
Reviewed 29 April 2013

Had a very nice weekend away at this apartment that is right in the town of Lorne. It is a convenient place to stay considering shops and cafes are just around the corner. Apartment is beautiful with full kitchen and a garage. Lovely balcony as well. We have enjoyed our stay in Lorne.

Our favourite weekends are those spent at the beach. We arrived very late on the Friday evening & the staff at the Ocean Sun Apartments were very accommodating - unlocking our apartment, leaving the key for us & turning the lights on before we arrived - we were very grateful for their assistance.

After a good nights sleep we awoke to check out our accommodation in the daylight. Great ocean views, all the way around to the Lorne Pier & a lovely balcony with outdoor setting & barbecue. The upstairs level was a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Downstairs two bedrooms, ensuite off the main & a large main bathroom with washing machine & dryer. Ticks for layout, space & the view.

However, on closer inspection, the apartment was really in need of a good clean. The ensuite floor was grubby & the wall around the ensuite bin was soiled with bits that don't bear mentioning - gross! The outside stairs & entry way really needed a good sweep down - covered in cobwebs, dust, leaf litter & insects.

Most of the crockery, glassware & kitchen utensils were dirty & all needed to be washed before use. Also, the kitchen was poorly stocked, with very minimal utensils & cooking equipment - not even a pair of tongs.

However, all of the gripes aside, we enjoyed our time in Lorne. The apartment is well located. You can walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, supermarket etc without needing the car. We made good use of the balcony & barbecue, enjoying the views & good weather in the evenings.

With a good clean & some TLC the Ocean Sun Apartments would be ideal. However, in their present condition they don't encourage a return visit.

We stayed here for one night while travelling the great ocean rd with family and booked a 2 br 2 b/room apartment. These apartments are run by the same people as the Lornebeach apartments. Despite the booking process being a bit disorganised it was all good when we got there and check-in was quick.

The apartments are in a separate location in a street behind the reception at Lornebeach apartments. There is a lock up garage which was great. Access to the apartment was via a set of stairs which can be hard to negotiate carrying heavy luggage. The apartment itself was roomy with the bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs along with a washing machine and dryer in the main bathroom, and a full kitchen and lounge upstairs. The heater and electric blankets on the beds were a welcome touch on a cold and rainy night.

The apartment was clean and tidy with everything required for a comfortable stay.
