“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stayed for one night, due to our late arrival the owner left the unit unlocked and turned the heating on for us. Very sweet and much appreciated as the night was freezing cold. The unit was clean, spacious and had beautiful views across the lake. If we weren't on a tight schedule we could have stayed a second and even third night easily. Upon checkout the manager gave us useful hints as far as sightseeing in Robe and our ongoing journey to Adelaide was concerned.

It is never a problem to open up a room and have it ready for a late arrival.We realise not all timetables go to plan .
Next time you are passing through Robe we hope you choose to stay a couple of days at least ,as it is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Thank you for choosing The Lakeview and see you next time.

The room was immaculately clean, great view over the lake, had a nice little kitchenette that came in handy, fridge kept my cans cold. We went out for tea, only a 5-10minute walk that we quite enjoyed. Still planning our next holiday in robe and looking forward to staying here then again

Huge room, best view, everything you need and cleanest room this trip .
Value for money by far with good heating and view right over lake for everyone
Kitchenette has everything needed and it's all beautifully new and very tidy and organised. You can feel safe here if your a neat freak .

This is a great review.
You obviously enjoyed your stay and the 'neat freak' comment says it all about the cleanliness of our rooms.
It is because of our staff and their hard work and commitment that we can offer accomodation to be proud of .
Thank you for taking the time to post a review.

My husband and I were in Room 10 and unfortunately it was one of the rooms under an upstairs apartment.

On the minus side, I could hear the people upstairs walking around and using the bathroom.
So I would go for a lower or higher numbered unit if possible. I did mention this to the owner and he was quite surprised, no-one had told him this before and he would try and address the problem with some insulation in the roof cavity. The furniture and bathroom were slightly dated, but we were only there one night, so no great drama for us.

On the plus side, it has a little kitchenette, which would be handy if you were staying there for more than one night. A beautiful sunrise appeared the next morning, and the birds were roaming around. Reception staff were very helpful as to where to eat. The bed and pillows were very comfy and the shower water was nice and hot.

Room Tip: Sleep quality was only due to the people moving around upstairs. Request that you are not under one...

Thank you for your review .
The sunrise and view are always spectacular and this is what helps to make a stay here ,a pleasant one.
We are constantley improving our accomodation and your comments are important to us to gauge how we are performing.
Our Standard (budget) Rooms although clean and well appointed are getting dated and it is on the list of jobs to do, to give them a revamp.
We are also addressing the noise transfer issue from the upstairs room.
Thank you again for your comments and if you are ever in the South East of South Australia we hope you choose to stay with us again

I was very impressed with this property. All round great value accommodation. The room itself was spacious and extremely well appointed with a full kitchen, mini bar, free WIFI, great quality bedding, hair dryer was actually a 'real' one, decent selection of TV channels, some satellite TV channels and in-house new release movies. Last but certainly not least was the view - gorgeous view overlooking Lake Felmongery.

Negatives are few and minor - and we didn't feel the need to complain at the time: someone had appeared to have already opened/broken the seal on one of the bottles of wine in the minibar, the in-house movies weren't programmed on the listed channels so I had to search through every channel until I found the channels on 404 and 407 instead of 4 and 5. Nevertheless, all wonderful!

Very friendly welcome. Room very clean. Comfortable beds. Lovely views over lake and outside the back door to the room - great to have that, there was a table and chairs where you could sit & enjoy the view.
Slightly off-put by having the kitchen area - which is very well equipped - just a couple of feet away from the end of the beds and the bathroom with its sliding door (they never provide enough privacy) facing onto the bed. Table and chairs provided inside but no comfortable seating.
My rating would be good - above average but not very good for the reasons stated.
Robe itself is a charming small town with some interesting sites and lovely beaches.

Lake View accommodated my bf & I on short notice. We booked a standard room & we were impressed with what we got. The standard room we booked was neat and tidy & included a kitchen - value for $$. Even though it was a little dated it was well maintained and comfortable. The view we had was beautiful & the staff were very friendly & only too happy to suggest local places to visit.
We had a sticky beak at the room next door & it was an amazing refurbished apartment, it seemed as though they had options to suit all budgets. We would definitely go back.
