We loved 5 Knots - it perfectly matched the images on their website. We stayed in apartment 6 so we had an amazing balcony and view of the bay. The room was cosy and we had our 3 month old baby with us and we were all happy, settled and relaxed. The town was packed for the long weekend but... More

Stayed in Apt2, premises were very clean. All kitchen appliances provided. Very mordern apartment. I did not have any issues with working appliances. The location of the apartment opposite the lake was beautiful, there wasn't much of a view from the apartment but all the more reason to go for a stroll. There is limited mobile phone reception here and... More

We have just returned from our stay at 5 Knots, Metung is gorgeous and we were delighted with our choice of destination. We booked this accommodation through Our Deal, so it should be noted that we were afforded a very good mid week rate, however our room (No.1) was freezing and the ground floor courtyard was more like a prison...

Wow, reading some of the reviews makes you wonder what is wrong with some people! Maybe they have an iq of under 50 and cant use a button to open a blind or have a problem with using their own toiletries!!!! Anyway, I stayed here, unfortunately for only one night, in a 2 bed apartment with my husband and parents... More

We went here as a midweek deal of three days and it was an excellent deal in terms of value for money. We has a single bedroom apartment. The kitchen was very well equipped, large fridge, many saucepans, microwave, there was a large spa and had the weather been a bit kinder, the outdoor quality BBQ would have been great... More

I had requested a particular apartment 6 months prior and was not notified we did not get our request until we arrived and found the number that matched our txt we were sent prior to arriving on that day. The worst thing was the actual number apartment we had requested was empty!!!! Very... More

Stayed 2 nights, arriving late Friday, having received our entry code during the afternoon. Loved the view from our unit, second floor, with our balcony overlooking the water. Unit was very clean and well presented, with lots of gadgets, however, no microwave, which we found quite strange. A sheet of instructions for the gadgets, including the electronic blinds, would have... More

Had no problem with receiving entry codes via text, or the lack of a reception to greet you, but given we were only staying one night the whole experience sort of passed us by without leaving any memories either good or bad. That said the facilities are what you should expect for a 5* price bracket, and once you've worked... More

We spent 5 relaxing days at 5 Knots. The property is in a superb location and has everything that you would require for a relaxing break. There was a problem with the wi fi on the first day we arrived, but on our second day it was sorted out. It is a bit of a problem not having reception on... More

I wasn't surprised to see another post regarding 5 Knots in Metung. We found the property to be clean and comfortable but the service was atrocious. No reception was available so luckily (on a good day) we had phone reception (not their fault I know) so it was shere luck that we received their text message giving us a code... More
