We were a party of five friends who spent one night in beautiful Lakes Entrance, driving from Narooma to Melbourne. After curiously taking in the beautiful views of the town as the sun sets in, we shortly arrived at the Esplanade and parked our car in the designated places. Our interaction with the reception staff was brief but pleasant; not... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay in a 1 bedroom apartment. Apartment nice and roomy but desperately needed a new mattress for the bed. Also a ceiling fan would help in the bedroom. No fly screens for windows or doors to balcony. Mismatched crockery and cutlery. Definitely not enough parking. All staff we had contact with were friendly and... More

You're lucky you have Sammy. That girl genuinely saved the experience for us. She put us in the best mood prior to coming to our room. Luckily so because everything after that fell flat. The parking was ridiculous, two cars to what looked like should have been one spot? The spots were tight and the roadway just that little bit... More

We took some visitors from the UK for a three night stay in a two bedroom apartment. It was not very clean, only the one air conditioning unit in lounge, no fans and no fly screens!! The beds were extremely uncomfortable and the lounge layout was not ideal (I.e. difficult to seat four people at the dining table without moving... More

Nice spacious rooms in a good location near the start of town. Rooms are clean, modern and well maintained and ours had a great view from the balcony. Not ideal for parking but also not the worst. Pools are clean and easily accessible. Ceiling fans, dimmable down lights, fly screens and a easy to use air con makes the place... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort for 3 nights. We were after a relaxing break. We booked a one bedroom suite so we would have some space to lounge around. It was a very nice room except the bed was rather hard and uncomfortable. There were also no fly screens so we could leave the window/balcony door open... More

Had a terrific deal on a 3 bedroom apartment which came with 2 bathrooms - excellent for 3 women travelling! Very clean and beds comfortable. Rooms rather light at night due to street lights outside but the view was a compensation during the day. Agree with other comments re lack of parking spaces - it's a bun fight at night.... More

Overall this was good value but we had a special package which was a fraction of the regular fee. The female staff were unprofessional and grumpy. At reception, only a young man smiled and welcomed our questions. The other female receptionists were terse and didn't seem to understand their role is to welcome customers. When I asked for a room... More

Just to be clear -ate at the restaurant only. Evening saved by waitress ( hair up in a bun) however the other waitress was grumpy and told us the restaurant was fully booked when some tables were not filled during the time we were there. Food was poor, atmosphere was poor with other guests complaining and food took a long... More
