For $20 more you can stay in beautiful accommodation at The Esplanade if you plan ahead. Unfortunately we got into Lakes a day before we had made reservations at the Esplanade. It was clean, BUT need major work. we were put in a spa room. Well, being a bit older, having to climb into a large spa bath to get...

Prior to travelling the Great Alpine Road, we stayed at the AbelTasman. Very clean, well appointed Motel, starting to show its maturity, however giving beautiful water views, fairly close to the centre of town, and more than friendly staff

The abel tasman has the hall marks of yesteryears hotel motel. Fantastic location directly across from the beach (with a loud highway in between). Unfortunately rooms are a bit worn and tired. And for us during peak season, prices were excessive.

Spotless room with an overall Asian feel. Great view, free wifi access. BBQ area for guest use and very clean swimming pool. Great walks directly out front both into town and to the surf beach. The young host was so pleasant, so nice, and made me feel so comfortable there that i would go back again and again. I'm guessing...

Great location and 5 minutes walk to the town centre. The property is a little tired and some work has been done in the rooms but more needs to be done to modernise the property. I am glad to be staying for a short time as I dont think my back could handle the bed much longer - very hard...

I must admit I was impressed, I booked through the trip advisor app, The room I received was large and well appointed for the reasonable price I paid. This hotel is situated right opposite the water front and was nicely deck out. I do feel I got good value for money. The room had a little kitchenette with a small...

On a positive note the rooms are spacious and ours was clean; however this is, unfortunately, the best that can be said about the Abel Tasman. Some efforts have been made to invest in the motel but these have clearly been restricted to new beds, tables and linen. The rooms themselves are significantly outdated with worn tiles and carpets, very...

The Abel Tasman is situated right on the waterfront at Lakes Entrance and the room was very nicely decorated, and came with a fridge and microwave. Short walk or drive to the shops and footbridge to the beach. Pool was very much appreciated on a hot day. Only stayed one night, but was very comfortable here and would definately consider...

After reading the reviews on this place, I was very disappointed with what I got. The room was small, the balcony faces the car-park with no view and no privacy, the furniture was dated and old, remote control batteries were dead, kitchen detergent bottle was filled with water, the fly screen was ripped and the whole place was just unloved...

We booked a room for 2 nights based on the great reviews I've read about the motel. Unfortunately I can only say it's average and not fabulous as rated on some sites. The room is a standard motel room with basic features. At first sight it seemed pretty clean but the truth is that it wasn't shiny clean: cobwebs in...
