Great location. Apartment 1 was well designed but had no view - if fact it was slightly below the road. The appliances were quality and it was immaculately clean. Just two minutes amble from the bakery and pub - what a great place to escape the world. Also - they have a great system where they text you the room... More

Nothing but the best in this 3 bedroom apartment. The views, the amenities, the ambiance, all first rate. Would recommend for a break away with friends or alone. Just a short stroll from the Metung Hotel, many Cafe's & Restaurants along the boardwalk.

This is a small boutique type development. The decor is high tech - electric blinds. Two TV's. O modern bathroom with spa bath. Hugh king bed. A great nights's sleep. It felt that you were actually on the water. Everything was there in the appliances. Just like new. A short stroll to the main village restaurants, shops, and Pub.

We stayed in Apt 6, overlooking Bancroft Bay. The check-in from the start was a put off. The confirmation letter emailed said the entry code for the door to the apartment will be SMSed in the morning of check-in but when I rung at 11am to get the code fearing no phone reception closer to Metung, the lady I spoke...

After working it out I was able to play the disc which showed off the resort and mentioned that Reception was contacted by pushing 9 on... More

5 knots is in a great location. You can walk along the boardwalk to the village. We had lovely views and it was quiet. However, what stopped it from being excellent was no manager/ office on site. It has all the mod cons but our room didn't have any written info ( apparently there was supposed to be an information... More

If you're looking for a quiet getaway, away from the touristy Lakes Entrance, Metung is a good little spot. We arrived after a long day of driving down the Great Alpine Road - we had previously stayed at another five star villa in Beechworth the night before, which I think has set the bar for our expectations of five star...

Recently stopped at 5 Knots, which we booked through an agency at a very reasonable price. The view from the 1st floor apartment was great and the furnishings were comfortable. It was a little small in terms of living area and the kitchen space was limited. No problem if you just want a basic meal, however, and the local eateries... More
