This motel bills itself as the only Lakes Entrance motel with a waterfront. This is probably true, although for most rooms this will mean squeezing past chalets and cars to get to it. The waterfront is the lake, not the sea and it is right on the edge of Lakes Entrance so it is quiet but a bit of a... More

We were very pleasantly surprised when we checked in to our motel room at this venue. The room had a separate kitchen area, couch and small table and chairs for dining. The clever design made it comfortable to relax in the living area or lounge in bed and catch a movie. The room was clean and well appointed. The management... More

Units are lovely and have heating. The place is full of aboriginal art so its very unique. Staff is super nice. Not all rooms have lake view as stated somewhere but it does not really matter as the place is so good.

I booked this accommodation the day before as my husband and I were driving home from NSW. The welcome was friendly and helpful and our room clean, spacious and fitted out with a small kitchenette, table and chairs, 2 lounge chairs and a comfortable bed. We travelled with our own pillows which made our holiday all the more comfortable. In... More

Let me preface this by saying that I have not only stayed in 5 star hotels, I have also worked in them as well. So generally when I stay anywhere, I am super critical. So with this said, this hotel is amazing. When you are travelling, you want to feel like you are away from home but still have the... More

When I reviewed places to overnight in at Lakes Entrance for my wife and I I saw that the Lakes Waterfront was #1 on TripAdvisor and Booking.com were offering our night for just A$99. Seemed like a great price for such a highly rated motel. What was the catch I wondered. Then I noted the price was for a 'standard... More

I stayed in the cottage witn my partner. The view from the porch and bedroom is fantastic. It is really nice sitting in the undercover porch just watching the birds and water view. The cottage as a bedroom and a lounge area. It is very spacious and a perfect getaway for a couple. The kitchen has a full size fridge... More

Peter, one of the owners is a pleasure to deal with and could not have been more helpful. Great advice on where to eat and the accommodation was clean, fresh and comfortable. Relaxed atmosphere was great after a 440+km ride. Excellent value and we would happily return if we are in the area again.
