We have been staying at the Esplanade Resort and Spa for many years and keep coming back because it is just so good! The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful - some of the staff on the front desk have been here every year we have been as well so they must like it too! We always stay in... More

First the good points: The staff members were always friendly with the lower ranked staff, in particular, doing their best to accommodate our needs, including repair of the TV setup. We loved the pool and spa but found the noise of children splashing about a little too much affecting the amenity. The continental breakfast which was included in our package... More

We stayed here recently with a group of 13 people across a few twin rooms and our stay was fantastic. The rooms had heaps of room for us all to get together, the individual bedrooms were spacious and comfortable with very nice bathrooms to match. We had a good view of the lakes out the front from our room and... More

I stayed here for a business trip and got put in a basic room on the second floor. There was no block out blinds and the orange lights on the building shone through the Venetian blinds all night lighting up the room. The king size bed had no comfort overlay so you could feel the ridge where the two singles... More

It's better than average but to give it a very good rating may be misleading, however not to give it a very good rating may be doing it a disservice. Spent the weekend in a two bedroom apartment with friends. Rained from the time we arrived till just about when we got back to Melbourne on the Sunday so we... More

Overall this resort was great. We had a few issues that we were not happy with. The pillows were terrible and.the inside swimming pool was loaded up with so much chlorine that it wouldnt wash of after a shower. The resort needed a face lift and at the moment doesn't deserve 4 and a half stars . No access to... More

Well there was nothing wrong with the resort but then there was nothing outstanding about it either - it was just alright. We stayed over the Cup Weekend for our 'babymoon' - Cup weekend was pretty awful as far as weather goes and that really doesn't leave you with many options for things to do in Lakes Entrance. Our room... More

We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was booked through a wotif.com flash sale. It was just my husband and I so we didn't need the second room but due to the sale price it was too good to refuse. We had a kitchen, lounge, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus a balcony overlooking the pools. The apartment was very... More

Just stayed at this resort for 3 nights. Great for a short stay. Had a room with a view on both sides which was a bonus. 2 good quality meals in the restaurant too. Upon request was given a late check out of noon.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, the room itself was very nice clean and tidy. We were staying two nights. The first night we stayed was very warm even at night. We went to bed and heard what sounded like a car engine at our window. We got up and saw on EVERY balcony was the exhaust for the... More
