We only had one night here but could happily have stayed much longer. We had an executive room which was extremely spacious and had all the equipment you could need. We were provided with fresh milk, but I can't remember the breakfast provisions. Outside was a table and chairs on the terrace with a lovely view of the lake. There are lots of restaurants in the town. We ate at the Gallerie which was excellent in every respect. Robe itself is a delightful little place and the coastline is beautiful.

Found this place whilst touring the area and looking for somewhere in a busy Robe, and was glad we did. ended up spending two nights after being given a very warm welcome by the owner/manager. Had a 2 bed apartment which was spacious, clean, great view of lake.
Gave us free fresh milk and washing powder and conditioner and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend 100%. Also has fully equipped covered BBQ area for those who want to cater for themselves.

We had to stay in Robe just for one night on the way home. Instead we stayed for 2 nights as this place was so lovely. The place had a spectacular panoramic views overlooking the Lake Fellmongery. I can not remember exactly the type of the accomodation we had, it could be an executive room but without a spa. The room was very spacious with clean bathroom and kitchen. It was a peak of season, but the place was peaceful and quiet. The room was nicely decorated in neutral colours. Our apartment was overlooking a nice green lawn and a lake, it was so great to have dinner sitting outside and looking over the lake. If I travel to Robe next time, I perhaps stay in the Robe motel just because it's got a heated swimming pool and my kids are crazy about swimming )). I hope my review will be helpful for other travellers. Yulia and Michael, Adelaide, SA

I booked this property online and chose it for it's spacious layout. Our party of 2 adults and 2 children booked for 4 nights in the winter school holidays and were thoroughly pleased with our choice. The location was wonderful - a small hotel directly overlooking the lake and within 2 minutes driving distance of town. We chose the more expensive 2 bedroom apartment and were very pleased with the facilities provided. Each bedroom had a TV (with cable and in house movies free of charge) as well as a larger screen in the living room. There was a well-appointed kitchen, laundry, large bathroom and separate toilet. The owners were very amiable and we felt that we had really found a nice 'port in a storm'. Although some may consider 4 days rather long in winter, there were magnificent bushwalks and some other quaint townships to explore nearby. The main street in Robe is full of lovely coffee shops and restaurants, with the Pizzeria definitely a favourite. The hotel was very quiet - probably due to the freezing weather - but I expect in the summer months the tranquility may be compromised. All in all, an excellent choice. We probably could've done better on the price if we had booked at the last minute.

My wife, mother-in-law and I travelled from Perth to Melbourne over three weeks, in April this year. This included a week driving the Great Ocean Road. We stayed in many apartments, spendng between 1 and 4 nights at each of them. None disappointed, most set a high standard, but Lakeview surpassed them all - for location and view, comfort and cleanlinesss, style and friendliness - definitely the best of all our stays. We thoroughly recommend Lakeview.

We stayed at the lakeview just one night on an extended trip. The owner was a lovely man and very helpful. We booked an executive room and to say we were pleasently surprised was an understatement. The room was large with a small kitchen area if you need it. The room would have to be one of the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in some top hotels all o ver the world. The hotel and standard of cleanliness is a credit to the owners. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to any traveller and the view over the lake from your door is beautiful.

My husband and I enjoyed the overnight stay. The spa ensuite was well maintained. The king sized bed was comfortable and the pillows were nice and fluffy. The view is fantastic- you get to see Lake Fellmongery as soon as you step out of your room. Spa was a treat. The reception staff was friendly. There are two movie channels and cable tv is available free of charge to the guest.

Foodwise-
Breakfast- we tried Mulberry's Cafe. Over-rated and over-priced in my opinion.
Lunch- Robe Bakery serves up some nice pies. Also give the Robe Fish and Chip shop a go- sit on the nice lawn in front of the beach and watch the waves crash in.
Dinner at The Gallerie - very nice, well priced, included in Mietta's good food guide- book ahead!

Activities
Top of the pick- sitting on the lawn overlooking Town Beach and watching the world go by.
Go for a stroll along the main street and visit the quaint little shops. My fave was the art gallery.
Liked the Obelisk

While you are in the region, take a drive to Kingston SE and visit the Cape Jaffa Lighthouse which had been shifted from its original position on the reef to this little town. Excellent guided tour. Another highlight of the trip to this part of South Australia.
