We stayed 1 night only. It says it is 3 star but at $160 for the night it was over priced I think. We had a front room which gives you a view of the lake but also the traffic noise from the Princess Highway. The place was clean, bed excellent and linen OK. We booked a head thinking it... More

I realise this is an old hotel, as most are in the area, but a bit of general maintenance wouldn't go astray. When I checked in the guy at reception was rude and obviously assumed I have never stayed in a motel before. He made stupid remarks about the check out time and about ordering breakfast to our room.

We have stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room we stayed had a balcony with amazing lake view and every thing is close by. Hence we could easily walk around leaving the car behind. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

This hotel disapoints in many ways. Is is a clean place but preaty dated. The bed quality is below average. The problems do start with small things like shower water that changes its temperature by itself from ice cold to boiling hot, wifi connection that practically doesn't work or when it does the speed is very low. Do get to... More

Room was very comfortable and clean. Location is great! Was given a few recommendations for dinner, including on site restaurant, but also some other local places. Could have easily stayed longer, was very comfy for the two of us.

We stayed for 1 night because we needed accommodation in lakes, we have stayed at the more upmarket accommodation in lakes before and thought it very overpriced for what was there. This motel had what we needed at a more economical price, with a very clean room, it was upstairs which wasn't a problem for us.....Lovely view of the water... More

The esplanade location is the only highlight of this motel. However after a long walk visitors should be aware that new, contemporary or luxury doesn't appear to exist in any of the nearby competitors either. It's such a shame that a beautiful location like this is so devoid of tourist accommodation investment. This motel's condition is a typical example of... More

We stayed for a couple of nights and found the room to be very clean and comfortable. We asked for it to be made up between nights and they did a superb job.It was easy to walk into the city for meals and the onsite restaurant was really lovely with magnificent seafood. We would certainly go back again.

Clean and comfortable but mean when it comes to staying on Best Western's own discount rates. The room was under the stairway to the second floor which meant you could not open the curtains as people coming down the stairs could look straight in. Also very reluctant to accept Fly Buys card because "Fly Buys cost us a lot and... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our road trip from Melbourne to Sydney. Our choice of this motel was based on the reviews provided here on tripadvisor and we were pleased with our stay also like the majority of the other reviews. Great location on the esplanade and easy waking distance to the footbridge to cross to the beach.... More
