The room was comfortable and quiet. Decent facilities, and all the room equipment worked. There is wifi but could not connect the entire stay even though we mentioned this, the receptionist did come out and try and address this immediately but to no avail. Breakfast was very basic just cereal or toast but was included in the price. The swimming... More

just 5 minutes drive to city centre and beaches. the location is overlooking the beautiful lake view. I enjoyed the sunset view from the balcony nearby. There is a small jetty where you can park off your boat and a pretty walk leading to the main beach and city centre. Location wise it's good The room quality is fine. Bed... More

This is the worst motel I have ever stayed in both here and overseas. The staff were NOT polite, even accused us of being racists. When we got to the room it was filthy, smelt and was not pleasant. Understandably we did not stay. The smell was too much. There are other nicer motels in Lakes Entrance which are cheaper... More

Rooms were clean but smelled very strong of bleach and washing powder. Not good for those with allergies! Staff were friendly and accommodating. Nice location looking over water. Paid too much for this type of accommodation.

We spent 1 night here on our way home to Sydney. $245/night for the worst motel room ever. Where do I begin? The whole establishment has seen much better days. It appears there hasn't been maintenance on the place for years. Weeds growing all over the place including around the pool. The place looks derelict really. If it wasn't for... More

Unfortunately I didn't read trip adviser before I booked and paid $250 a night. Don't recommend this place the pool area was filthy with cans and rubbish everywhere, muddy puddles and weeds. Do yourself a favor and don't stay here.

This so called motel must have bought its three stars on eBay, or got them when it opened in the nineteen forties. At best worth $100 per night, not the $245 we desparately paid on a long weekend. Over priced, mediocre service, not bad view. TV didn't work, wifi must've been on dial-up.

Its a motel. OK. Good views from the viewpoint, but otherwise oh dear. Rooms very tired - need refurbishment. As good as they could make it, but I think there are new owners. No dining facilities - they attempted simple breakfast but Iv'e done better when taking children camping! I don't expect a tub of spread with a knife to... More

Nice budget accommodation offering clean & comfy beds, tea/coffee facilities, shower with toiletries, a small pool and a stunning lakes/sea view with amazing sunsets. 90 AUD per 4-pax family room - a great value for money.

Our stay at this motel was by necessity not choice! It was NYE 2013 and vacancies were few and far between and as you can guess quite expensive $200 for 1 night in this rat hole. I booked online as a "last minute" option. Right from the start unfortunately the reception staff seemed overwhelmed and lacked a common understanding of... More
