Wayne and Betty are very friendly hosts, the place is lovely and clean, quiet and peaceful, amazing location 2 mins from main beach, excellent chip shop and cafe across the road. Highly recommended, excellent value for money

Had a terrific stay. Rooms a little smaller than expected. We managed though. Rooms clean, kitchen clean, bathrooms and toilets clean. Friendly couple with Wayne particularly informative of his local area. Walking distance to everything which is exactly what I needed. Guests were friendly and very accommodating and included my son in some of their outings; my son who is...

Disappointing I am a frequent reviewer & researcher on TA & give honest reviews of MY stays & experiences & I rely on other reviewers contributions. I had made an earlier review on this property but some things needed to be clarified/amended due to response from Management. My husband & I did some sightseeing along the Gippsland & Sapphire coast...

"Take 2" Another example of a guest booking blindly without researching what they are actually paying for.We are a 2 star rated budget hostel as laid out on our Tripadvisor home page and do not pretend to any more than that. When you book a Twin Room with SHARED BATHROOM FACILITIES it is to be expected you would receive 2...

Just 2 minutes away from the beach (and a good cafe), this little lodge offers spacious dorms, good showers, fast and stable wifi, good kitchen and nice staff. Lockers are provided. Few e-sockets in the room. Good common-area. A bit empty when I was there. But seems to be a good spot to stay longer.

The Wandarrah Lodge is a great hostel with very very nice owners. The beds are great, had my best night since i arrived in Australia. At the night is very quiet so you can get some rest. The town centre is 20 mn walk from the Lodge. I liked the walk because i was in the car the whole day....

I only stayed for one night but I felt right at home from the moment I got there. The facilities are very clean and organised and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook a feast! I got a free upgrade to my own room (score!) And the bed was very comfortable!

We are regular visitors to Wandarrah Lodge and are so for many reasons! The friendliness of the owners Betty and Wayne are the major drawcard. The Lodge is immaculately presented with a very friendly atmosphere. Wandarrah is located close to the beach and a great walk in to town. We will continue to be regular visitors to Wandarrah Lodge and...
