Peter and Gillian could not do enough for us during our two day visit. They went beyond the call to ensure we were looked after. The room we had was clean, well equipped, comfortable and very good value for the money.

Having driven passed the place we are so glad we did a U turn and went back to the Lakes Waterfront Motel. A little bit of 'heaven' away from the hub hub of down town Lakes Entrance. The owners are very friendly, very hands on and are 'clean freaks' which is what you want when staying at a motel. The place is spotless and very comfortable and not only is it situated on the Lake it is also set in lovely gardens. It was a real struggle to leave the next morning to continue our journey. Would definitely visit again.

Lovely welcome by the owners with a helpful map and dining recommendation. We stayed as a family in a well equipped unit, self contained with a kitchen, living space and 2 bedroom spaces. Big TV and hot shower.
The decor is very retro. 70s or perhaps 80s (some time before i was born!), but they have maintained it well and it was very clean.
They can bring breakfast to your room (there's a good range on offer), but we opted to cater ourselves. There's 2 large supermarkets in town, including a Safeway open until 10pm.
Wifi is available in the units but costs 5 AUD for an hour.
There is a small swimming pool, guest bbq and coin-operated guest laundry on site.
It's a few km to the main esplanade of Lakes Entrance, so you can't walk from the motel for a meal out. We ate at Tres Amigos Mexican restaurant, which was filling and very delicious (see separate review).
Overall we paid $120 for a party of 3 adults for the night, which was excellent value.

Lakes Waterfront Motel may be quite an old building but it is very clean and comfortable. The owners were welcoming and very informative. The lake views are beautiful and the gardens which are lovingly tended by the owners provide a very tranquil oasis of greenery where we enjoyed an aperitif after our long drive. The BBQ facilities and self catering facilities are excellent. We would certainly stay there again.

Stayed one night here. Lovely welcome, and spotless clean accommodation in a twin room unit in front of a small pool. Unit itself was comfortable although dated. Went to a superb seafood restaurant recommended by the owners. Overall a good resting place whilst touring

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new units and avoid the retro experince

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights 07/01/13 and was pleasantly surprised as this was a last minute decision to go down to Lakes Entrance as it isnt one of our favourite places during the summer school holidays as we find the crowds and children not very relaxing however we changed our minds after staying at this motel. From the very friendly welcome from Peter who showed us to our room and gave us our supply of fresh milk and some nice bikkies for an afternoon cuppa after a long motorbike ride down from the Dandenongs then in for a cooling swim in the salt water pool. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable and the a/c worked a treat. And the price was very affordable we will definitely be back maybe even in the busy period as we found this motel to be very relaxing and Peter to be very obliging and always a hello with a smile ...nothing seemed as it it would have been to much trouble for their guests ....THANK YOU

Room Tip: All the rooms are good!

I decided to stay in this place after considering all the good reviews on trip advisor. thanx everyone coz it really was such a great place, very hospitable owners/staff had all the basic facilities very clean, cozy and comfortable. great value for money! I would recommend this place to anyone...
Also people in addition to the 90 miles beach do not forget to visit the Lake Tyres which is amazing and to have a meal from Wyanga park winery, their gnocchi is one of the best I have ever tasted!
