I always turn to my fellow travelers when looking for accomodation and again was not let down. We stayed in the executive suite (thanks to or friendly host) it was clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet with a nice view, what more could you want from a little Aussie country motel.
I have seen some traveler reviews on trip advisor who see the five stars and then express disappointment one guy even trying to compare a motel he stayed in to the hilton because he paid same price?? TA five star is about the service, standard and value for money in comparison to establishments in the same area ...obviously in a seasonal tourist area you expect to pay a bit more.

Thank you for your positive comments. Management and staff of the Lakeview pride themselves on providing a very high standard of cleanliness and service.
The bonus is the fantastic outlook over Lake Fellmongerey available from all rooms.......
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you ,if you pass our way again.

While on a road trip in late July, my wife and I had the good fortune to find this place almost by accident.
After a long drive down from the Clare Valley we were trying to find somewhere comfortable and good value to break the trip.
The Lakeview ticked all the boxes. The room was their basic accomodation but was very spacious, spotless and had all the basic amenities you need for a one night stay. Check in (without a booking) was easy and the gentleman at Reception couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. Did I mention the view over the lake?
If doing a trip through SA don't miss Robe........a beautiful little town situated on a truly lovely part of the coast. The locals are extremely welcoming and are rightly proud of their home town.
The Lakeview is a perfect place to rest from your travels and it's excellent value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad you chose us for your overnight stay.
Robe and the surrounding area is a little gem and one of South Australia's best kept secrets.
The Lakeview provides quality accommodation at reasonable prices ,all rooms do have a lake view and we do have rooms for all budgets.

Please call again if you are ever on The Limestone Coast.

We stayed in the motel for one night during our road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide and chose it because of the other good reviews. The room was clean and spacious, with a lovely view of the lake, although the bad weather meant we didn't see it at its best. The furniture was rather dated and not as modern as other motels we stayed in but that didn't stop us having a very pleasant overnight stop.

Highly recommend spacious rooms, clean, comfortable and great views of the lake. The hosts are wonderful, friendly people. Excellent BBQ facilities which is great for families travelling. Great hot showers which was perfect for cold winters night. Beds were really comfortable which is a must after a long drive. We will revisit for sure. Great price and great accommodation

In early July, while driving from Adelaide to Melbourne, we stayed in an Executive Twin room, which was very spacious, well-kept and the most "luxurious" motel room we have stayed in for the whole trip. The room also had a view of the lake and comes with free wi-fi. I think it was Pam who welcomed us at the reception when we arrived. A very pleasant person who gave good advice to our questions on where to eat, directions etc.

Unfortunately, we only stayed one night at the place. Would have loved to have stayed longer.

What a great room to find at the end of a long journey!
The Lakeview Motel is situated on a hill to the left as you are coming into Robe and is well signposted. We were very impressed with the decor and quality of fittings in what is a very comfortable, spacious and well thought our unit. One of the best motels that we stayed in during a two week tour of South Australia, we were so happy that we picked the Lakeview. Arriving after dark we were more than pleasantly surprised when opening the curtains in the morning to find great views over the lake...shouldn't have been a surprise really given the name!
With BBQ and a spacious and well screened alfresco area you have the options to cook at home or try the range of great eateries in town. All this coupled with great hosts who are super friendly and happy to point you in the right direction so that you enjoy all that Robe has to offer. The Lakeview Motel is the ideal choice for either a short or long stay or if you are travelling or holidaying. Located a short walk (less than a kilometre) from the shops in the centre of town and coastline it provides an ideal base to explore this delightful coastline or simply relax and recharge the batteries. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

The owner very definitely has an eye for design. The beds have a very nice bed runner on top of white comforter covers. The kitchen & bathroom are also well equipped and clean. The lake view from the room is great.
The motel is walking distance to the main street and we had a terrific dinner at Sails. It was a good thing, the motel owner recommended us to pop into the restaurant in the afternoon to make a booking because we saw quite a few people being turned away while we had our dinner.
