$85 got us a large clean and comfortable double room and huge very clean bathroom. It had microwave, toaster and jug and lots of crockery and cutlery with tea, coffee and milk provided. There were lots of easily accessible power points for charging devices and the electric blanket was a nice touch on a very cold night. It is in...

Stayed two nights and was amazed that it was packed each night in off-peak time. The room had been recently renovated and it was very good. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom/shower was excellent. When I was there NBN works were going on in the area and it seems that it had resulted in WiFi being unavailable at that...

What a brilliant place to stay. The location is so prime that it is the first thing one hits while entering lakes entrance from west. There are two pools which are super awesome - one open and other covered with Jacuzzi. There is a lawn tennis court to put calories to rest deep. The rooms are neat and clean. All...

We stayed overnight on our way home from Phillip Island & we found it to be good value & everything we needed. $5 each for a continental breakfast was exactly what we were looking for. It is situated in the centre of town & therefore are plenty of options for meals.

The Esplanade is in a top location, and with off street parking it is a good place to start exploring the town and the surrounding attractions. The rooms are a cut above the average in terms of decor. ( although not large ) The room that I occupied had a really nice feeling to it. The shower was great ...the...

When we arrived there was only one room left which was more like a little apartment. It was lovely and clean. I am planning another visit with my sisters and elderly mother for 2 nights. The $5 continental buffet was amazing value for money, as was the room. Thanks for a lovely anniversary weekend.

Very comfortable, clean room with separate bedroom and balcony. TV in both the bedroom and the lounge area. Finding a parking spot can be a problem if you go out for the evening and come back late. No room service or breakfast available.
