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.

We stayed here in Mid February and found it an excellent find. Lots of room, nice kitchen facilities, WiFi and TV. The owner was very friendly and helpful with questions. We spent the afternoon and the morning of the next day in Lake Entrance. I would highly recommend this location.

This does not set out to be luxury, average probably doesn't adequately describe the space of the apartment and the small kitchen that comes with the room. Which is more than adequate. It hits excellent with value. Staff very helpful, wifi included although I needed to walk outside to download an English newspaper. Would stay there again if ever passing... More

This place is just great for one night or a week. The owners are friendly and the rooms are spotlessly clean. The motel has a relaxed atmosphere and is a welcome retreat after time on the road. The aboriginal artwork in the rooms is amazing. After two weeks on the road throughout NSW & Victoria, this is by far the... More

Stayed for one night. The cottage was amazing, and it had that calm relaxing countryside atmosphere we were looking for away from hustle and bustle of the city in China. We had a nice picnic under the tree in front of the cottage overlooking the lake-such an enjoyable moment! We came to lakes entrance to rewind and would ask for... More

We found this motel to be very friendly, clean, spacious and comfortable. Larger than the usual motel room. It has a separate kitchen, lounge room and bedroom. Open plan but quite roomy. The owners were extremely gracious and friendly. Highly recommended.
