The managers are extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable. Immaculately clean and spacious. So close to the water and only a very short drive to everything. We could have stayed a week easily and would live to come back. If you go to Lakes Entrance, choosing this motel to stay at is a very good decision.

Really enjoyed our 4 days at Lakes. It was enhanced by the accommodation! It is a motel & it also has some waterfront cabins. We chose one of those, would have accommodated 4 people. The cabin had a country feel about it, which we enjoyed. The garden setting was special. Owner operated, been doing it for a long time &... More

We booked a lakeside chalet for three nights and were provided with a spacious chalet with separate lounge, kitchen/dining and main bedroom. The chalet is older style but very clean and comfortable. As it was cold during our stay the heating in the lounge and kitchen areas and electric blanket on the bed were most welcome. Located on the main... More

Just a quiet restful weekend. Waterfront cabin which was lovely with quiet areas to sit along the lake. Nothing too much trouble from our hosts. Cabin decor, not super modern but homey and very clean and welcoming. We will be back. Well done guys.

I overnight-ed and found the place to be spotless. All facilities worked well, the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable if a little dated. Staff were friendly and accessible. The price made Lakes Waterfront excellent value. Simple unpretentious value with a country welcome.

Clean and functional room. Right at the front near the highway, but perfectly quiet. Comfortable bed, good pillow choices, REAL toilet paper, REAL milk, information and maps- all of those touches that show consideration for the visitor. Late night arrival and early to leave, but was shown the care and attention to really make me feel welcome.

This is not your traditional motel. Whilst it is old style, the rooms look out onto lovely (cared for) gardens with undercover parking and a generous sitting room. The kitchen was quite adequate for our short overnight stay and bed was comfortable. The TV wall bracket needed some maintenance but the owners did their best to fix this without undue... More

We were off on our road trip and decided to the Ballarat to Lakes in one hit. My wife found this motel and said that the reviews were very good and the motel was inexpensive. The reviews were right, it is clean, well situated and on the foreshore. Did I say clean - it was very clean and maybe a... More
