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...

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

We booked a 3 night special at 5 Knots at a very reasonable rate, prices vary quite a bit at certain times of the year but that is the same for most accommodation. Our one bedroom apartment was No.2 which was on the ground floor Lake King side. The place was spotless and all furnishings and appliances were of top... More

Just about to finish 4 glorious days at Metung. The Gippsland Lakes at this time of year is at their best. Accommodation in Metung is readily available and choice is wide. We choose 4 Knots Apartments from Bookings.com through Tripadvisor and had no problems with booking. However on contacting the managers (wherever they are) we were told our Room number... More
