We booked a lakeside chalet for three nights and were provided with a spacious chalet with separate lounge, kitchen/dining and main bedroom. The chalet is older style but very clean and comfortable. As it was cold during our stay the heating in the lounge and kitchen areas and electric blanket on the bed were most welcome. Located on the main... More

Just a quiet restful weekend. Waterfront cabin which was lovely with quiet areas to sit along the lake. Nothing too much trouble from our hosts. Cabin decor, not super modern but homey and very clean and welcoming. We will be back. Well done guys.

I overnight-ed and found the place to be spotless. All facilities worked well, the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable if a little dated. Staff were friendly and accessible. The price made Lakes Waterfront excellent value. Simple unpretentious value with a country welcome.

Clean and functional room. Right at the front near the highway, but perfectly quiet. Comfortable bed, good pillow choices, REAL toilet paper, REAL milk, information and maps- all of those touches that show consideration for the visitor. Late night arrival and early to leave, but was shown the care and attention to really make me feel welcome.

This is not your traditional motel. Whilst it is old style, the rooms look out onto lovely (cared for) gardens with undercover parking and a generous sitting room. The kitchen was quite adequate for our short overnight stay and bed was comfortable. The TV wall bracket needed some maintenance but the owners did their best to fix this without undue... More

We were off on our road trip and decided to the Ballarat to Lakes in one hit. My wife found this motel and said that the reviews were very good and the motel was inexpensive. The reviews were right, it is clean, well situated and on the foreshore. Did I say clean - it was very clean and maybe a... More

Having stayed at a number of different motels on our road trip we were delighted to find this gem at the lakes entrance. Great sized apartment, super clean, separate rooms, multiple TVs, but most of all a hospitable owner! Sadly the weather didn't match the accommodation but would love to pay another visit if I ever can. Highly recommended!!

We stumbled on this motel and were pleasantly surprised. It's unassuming and modest but a real gem. The proprietors are down-to-earth, friendly and helpful people who make you feel welcome. We stayed in a cabin close to the edge of the lake and soon made friends with swans, parrots, ducks and other local birds. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful.... More

The accommodation was very comfortable and the unit was clean and tidy. The unit was quite old. The motel has a great location being on the banks of the Lakes Entrance bay. The staff were helpful and polite .

I am a devotee of Tripadvisor and rely heavily on the contributions of my fellows and chose to stay at Lakes Waterfront Motel on this basis When I pulled up on arrival I thought I had been the victim of a practical joke as the place looked as though it would have been built in the 50s or 60s and...
