Julie & Darron are wonderful hosts and their rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. Excellent service and local advice, homely and overall excellent. No hesitation in recommending the Heyfield to all travellers.

My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stopover at the Heyfield on a road trip down to Melbourne. The accommodation is very comfortable and spotlessly clean and we were fortunate enough to be upgraded to an apartment which gave us a little more room (not that we needed much for an overnight stay). The location on the Esplanade is great with all of the conveniences of town just a sensible ten minute walk down the street. Rooms are quiet (despite the Esplanade location) and the owners very friendly and knowledgeable - not just about Lakes Entrance but they also provided some great advice on the most scenic route for us to follow into Melbourne when we left.

Lakes Entrance is not the Gold Coast but it is a great little spot and we'll certainly be back for an extended stay at the Heyfield!!

Room Tip: If you're staying for a while make the most of an apartment for that little extra room.

Thanks for your generous comments on our place. We're pleased that you enjoyed your stopover whilst travelling. The laid back and relaxed atmosphere of Lakes Entrance is what makes it such a great place to spend a few days or even a week exploring the Gippsland Lakes. Regards Julie and Darron

We only stayed in Lakes Entrance for one night of our road trip, frankly one night is enough.... however this motel was very nice, clean, spacious and great service! I would probably not come back to Lakes Entrance - but would recommend staying in this motel to others that might come through here.

Thanks for the review. Yes, a bit of space in your suite/apartment can make a big difference to your overall comfort. Glad that you enjoyed our central location across the road from the beautiful waters of Cunninghame Arm and an easy stroll to quite a selection of restaurants and clubs. It's a shame you didn't have extra time to stay in Lakes to go on one of the cruises up the famous Gippsland Lakes System so that you could enjoy the pristine waterways and abundance of wildlife and birdlife. Maybe next time! Regards Julie and Darron

Unbelievable value - spacious motel rooms, light and airy with all the mod cons. This was a stopping off point during our trip to the Sapphire coast, so after 4 hours drive we were relieved that check in was so easy, and were made to feel at home by the friendly and very hospitable hosts. Our room was upstairs and had partial lake views from our table setting outside the room on the balcony. Small pool there for cooling off in the hot summer days was a bonus too. We were so impressed with this relaxing and well appointed motel, we stayed there a couple more days on the way back too to break up our journey.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with young children, ask for a room near the sand pit and trampoline.

It was lovely to have you back again on your return trip from the Sapphire Coast. Thanks for the great comments. Hopefully we'll see you again in the near future, maybe making Lakes Entrance your holiday spot for a few days. There's plenty of great restaurants for you to try out and we also have ground floor self contained apartments if you would prefer to have a kitchen and living area separate from the bedroom.

We arrived in Lakes Entrance late in the day, with adult daughter, pondering what we could find as comfort after busy days in Melbourne. One of the first in the motel strip facing the water, the Heyfield motel had a sign for apartments. How much one wonders?

Well, the price was good, the advice at reception about where to get the fish and chips was accurate (as we discovered) and the two bedroom apartment was excellent.

Apart from comfort and amenity (and efficiency and cleanness) it's nice to arrive somewhere and find when you are leaving next day that you are still being attracted to clever design and the good looks of the place. Our hosts were bright and cheerful, with happy engaging conversation. I'm sure any problems would be resolved swiftly.

Very happy to recommend for a stopover, and the kitchen and living space and equipment very adequate for a longer stay. Just about ideal, if you wanted such an apartment for a holiday: on the water, not squashed in the centre of town, room inside for wet weather enjoyment too.

Room Tip: Ours was right at the back, children's play area right at our door, if you want (or don't wa...

I booked this on Wotif for the last Saturday of January...holidays...so i wasn't expecting a bargain. The online pics looked Ok but the room I got was dinky. The TV was so high it abutted the ceiling (this is not an exaggeration). This made watching Tv impossible. The layout of my unit (#8) was terrible. You opened the door and were immediately faced with a wall 1xmetre away. To the right was a room with double bed...barely enough room to walk around (TV on the ceiling) Small en suite leading off. To the left of entry was a smaller space with a table 2 x seat lounge, fridge sink etc...but very small and badly designed...what little space was wasted. Reception staff were over-friendly (maybe because of the room I was allocated). This was a $60 room at best. Very, very disappointing.

Room Tip: Inspect the allocated room before checking in

Unit No. 8 is our smallest and least expensive room. It is popular with guests throughout the year because it is our cheapest room and you are still able to carry out some basic cooking. January is the month when demand for rooms are at their highest and therefore rates reflect this. Our aim is to give everyone a warm and friendly greeting upon arrival, regardless of what room they are going into.
