Whether you are staying for business or pleasure, La Perouse is the perfect place to stay in Lorne

Our little hotel by the sea is a welcome refuge for weary travelers. We are located within walking distance to all of Lorne's attractions. Every day is an opportunity for discovery: trendy boutiques, magnificent waterfalls, the latest restaurants run by famous & talented chefs, the cutting edge art gallery in the bush & the magic of the Great Ocean Road and beyond.


Lorne is a seaside town on Louttit Bay in Victoria situated about the Erskine river and is a popular tourist destination on the Great Ocean Road tourist route. For many the first stop when travelling from Melbourne.

A long time summer holiday favorite for Melbournians and local farming families and now famous for its annual pier to pub swim, it is a year-round destination. It attracts families, surfers, cyclists, walkers and weekenders. Lorne caters for everyone. You will have plenty of choice for coffee, cafes, great restaurants, shops and the popular patrolled beach.

French inspired design & style

Small but perfectly formed the building’s architectural details feature timber inside and out to give a coastal feel. The garden is a work of love and the kitchen, complete with library provide a variety of private spaces to chat, read a book or just relax. Or you can just sit and watch the ever changing scenery from your private terrace.

The Rooms

Rooms include classic, deluxe and a small suite. Each room has been individually designed with all the little touches that make you feel at home.

As proud patrons of creativity, we feature original works made by Australian artists throughout the hotel. Many of the bowls & cups used in our kitchen are hand made with love by Australian potter Suzanne Bellamy or Graeme Wilkie. We have been collecting the work of Suzanne Bellamy for decades, you will find her bowls, paintings and sculptures on display for your enjoyment.

If you discovered La Perouse Lorne via our marketing initiatives or simply by word of mouth from guests who have stayed we would appreciate it if you could book direct and help support small business. We make a donation to not-for profit organisation, Somebody's Daughter Theatre from every booking that we receive direct.
