Against the background of good reviews and a nod from our hosts, we dined at this hotel and found the attention we received reflected too many customers for the available staff. However, we did get seated and found it is an establishment where you have to get your own drinks, order at the counter etc. Keeps costs down, I imagine.
The food we ordered from an impressively extensive menu was plentiful but so, so oily, we had to pat items down with a napkin to absorb some of the oil.
The wine list was quite fair (for a hotel) but the choices of draught beers very average.
Get what you pay for, I suppose. Hence the average score.

Staying in Fishpen Road, we decided to walk to dinner so we could have a drink with our meal. The Lakeview Hotel is in an ideal location close to accommodation.
We were seated at the window, which has fantastic uninterupted views of the lake. The waitress on duty was really friendly.
When the food arrived, the serving sizes were generous and the taste was great.
We had a great time.

This place offers generous portion pub meals. Good value for money. Very relaxed atmosphere. I would say it would get busy on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We went there on a Tuesday eveing at 8.00 p.m. after driving around and around trying to find a restaurant that was open at this hour of night that was not overly expensive. We were wanting a casual meal.

Am really struggling to recommend a better place for families to eat a meal in Merimbula
I have tried the RSL ( which was terrible ) and the Bowling Club which was much more upmarket than the RSL ( and with better food )
The food at the Lakeview Hotel was probably the best, the beer was cold and the outlook is spectacular
Best of all I was able to walk there from the Coast Apartments

We had lunches here in the holidays in Sept 2012. Good food at great value for money. We loved the half chicken roast and salmon portions. The Hotel has the best view over the lake and plenty of parking out the back. Nice garden area also.
