This Motel is ideal for a stopover at Lakes Entrance. The room was a good size and comfortable. We chose one which looked over the Lake and had a balcony. Lovely to watch the boats and bird life. The road wasn't noisy during the night.

Clean tidy room for 3 for one night. Plenty of parking. Opposite beach and easy walk to restaurants. Bathroom was updated well. Reasonable size room. On-site restaurant (Clancy's) was good and very handy. Prices increase dramatically over Easter. Off peak this motel would be a great option.

Very nice and friendly staff. The rooms were large and clean. Modern with a balcony. Free wifi as well. Shampoo etc supplied Good size television. Great views of the Lake. A bit pricey though considering the other motels that are just as good. Would stay here again though. Clean

We spent 3 nights in this Motel. Although an older motel, the rooms have had a facelift and it was extremely comfortable, good beds, clean, great showers and close to the centre of the town. Easy walking distance to cafes, shops etc. We would definitely recommend staying there. The only complaint was that our rooms were not made up on...

We stayed here whilst en route to Sydney. The motel appeared to be quite average. However all the things listed on our itinerary were included, and the bed was comfortable. What is included which is not listed is a free BBQ, and a nice swimming pool. The pool catches the last rays of the sun, and is an ideal way...

My partner and l stayed overnight during a trip to Brisbane and found the host friendly and inviting. Nice room with lovely bathroom, comfy beds and proximity to the dining strip. Situated in a very quiet part of town. Optional breakfasts were reasonably priced and delivered as room service.
