Just had 6 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. It was great EXCEPT: 1/ the noise of adjoining units is too loud. In fact it was frustrating because it is not quite loud enough to understand the conversations. 2/ to make matters worse they started maintenance on the floor of the unit above -- tap, tap, tap, pause, tap, tap,...

We took a mid-winter break here, just for three days, in a one-bedroom apartment. The general outlook was nice, front overlooking the water across the road, the back looking over the North Arm. Unfortunately the location is just a little too far from town to comfortably walk - the walk being almost totally a strip of motels and apartments. The... More

All amenities provided stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Indoor pool and spa fantastic. Would definitely recommend to our friends and family to stay. Perfect winter weekend away throughly enjoyed my birthday. Dinner at the Floating... More

This would simply have to be the best place we have ever stayed in all of Victoria, if not Australia. The kitched with roof windows to watch the stars at night and huge indoor spa and massive outdoor entertaing area with rooftop spa was brilliant. add the stunning 360 views of Lakes Entrance and it a holiday you will never...

Took some time to have a long weekend in Lakes Entrance with adult family. We needed to upgrade to a 3 bedroom apartment at the last minute and this was done very effortlessly by the staff - who were friendly and obliging. The apartments are well situated and we really enjoyed the heated pool and spa on the cold winter... More

We booked this hoping for a lovely sea view with great amenities. Well the only good thing about this resort is the room size, the rest is very disappointing. The road noise was awful, the building site/ harbour across the main started at 5am with reversing beeping noises and it just got worse from there on. You can hear everything... More

The meals in the restaurant were very good and fairly priced and the indoor pool was clean and... More
