4/10 Fair

Not far from beach.
The person working there is on his own. The outside needs cleaning and painting desperately. There's dirt, dead leaves, garbage and cigarette butts lying around outside. The place would be so much better with a good clean. The inside wasn't overly clean either; not as bad as the outside. Also there was no one there when we arrived and it took 2 hours for someone to show up. The bed wasn't made properly; no top sheet or pillow cases. They were given when requested. The place smelled of damp cigarette butts in certain places which turns me off completely.

Cheap stopover
We arrived in the dark and were rather confused by the sign which said 'Otway' lodge. I had to call a number to get somebody to come and check us in, and he told me the backpacker lodge was no longer operating. I was confused as to whether I'd booked the right place. Room was clean, in a shared apartment with 2 bedrooms and all amenities, very good. The common room was a different story - very shabby, and a dismal breakfast. Fine for a cheap stop!

Comfortable, with well equipped kitchen
Friendly and helpful hotel manager. Kitchen had good facilities. There was a lounge and dining area in addition to the bedroom. Breakfast is do it yourself in a common area (Though welcome to take food back to the room instead). A range of cereals, bread, jam. Notices in the room and handbook about the need to clean, dry, and put away all crockery, or face extra cleaning fees felt a bit draconian. Internet was Ok, but is on a timer and only available for a few hours each day.

Feels like home
Felt like we stayed at home. Only thing we didnt like was old utensils and uncleaned kettle. Time to change the kitchen stuff. Other than that all good.

Just a close walk to the beach & Shops
The lodge is not fancy 4 star but its in a good location and you get the value for what you are paying for. I stayed in 2 bedroom unit on the ground floor which has 1 queen in master and bunk bed in the other room with all linen and bedding provided. The unit has full kitchenette and quite a bit of space and also has spa in the en-suite bathroom. Good if you are staying with little kids. My kids enjoyed playing cricket in the front lawn.
