Great motel. We stayed on the 4th floor in a 1 bedroom spa apartment. Had everything we needed, very clean and attractive. Spa is very extravagant! Some views of the foreshore area. Is a good walk into town centre which was fine for us or you could dine at the motel I believe. Some A|/C noise in bedroom as it... More

Unit setup was comfortable and clean and pleasantly surprised by the washing machine which was quickly put to use. bathroom was modern and clean. I did chuckle when I noticed that... More

We came here for a long weekend and had a beautiful stay! We stayed in a hotel room as we planned to eat out most nights. The room was small, but for a weekend it didn't matter at all, room service was available and the resort has it's own restaurant and bar too. Rooms were clean and tidy and easily... More

We stayed here 2 nights in June and were disappointed Café was closed, but they had an arrangement with a Motel down the road for us to eat at. It was only a Continental Breakfast for $15 but adequate. The indoor pool at Esplanade was small but ok, although dominated by families most of our stay.The walk ( outdoors) from... More

I stayed at the venue in early July 2015 for business. The resort is anongst the best in Lakes Entrance. The rooms are suberb with plenty of room, there is an on site pool, spa, restuarant and playgrounds. Accomodation is set back from the street and located opposite the lake. Plenty of parking on site. Highly recommended property. Overall excellent.

Three of us stayed for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. (Free WiFi was an added bonus). Our only complaint was with the parking which was difficult to find and very hard to get into. One car had taken up two car spaces!! The location is at one end of Lakes Entrance and... More

We stayed there two weeks ago, and booked a two bedroom suite throught Luxury Escapes. Rooms were terrific, clean and well appointed. Restaurant closed offered the Boathouse but declined. The only thing I could not understand that there was a surcharge of $150 for Saturday night, the room wasn't serviced in any way shape or form the three nights we... More

The main bedroom had the ensuite with bath and separate shower, TV on the wall, 2 sitting chairs and small table. The other bedroom... More
