We stayed over the Easter weekend and had the most horrible experinece. From the time we arrived, the room smelt of rotten seafood. After paying over $300 for the night we were extremely disappointed as management were unable to move our rooms as it was the Easter weekend and they were fully booked. Had to put up with the stench for our whole stench. Not happy with the way management handled the issue.

Lovely room with a fantastic view, very comfortable bed, impeccably clean and best shower of our two week touring holiday. close to shops and RSL Club and plenty of off street parking. Loved the cocktail bar.

Paid close to $300 for a night in a Lake View Spa Suite. At that price point it's not unreasonable to expect a reasonable quality and comfortable bed. The bed was as hard as they come, with little give for body pressure points such as shoulders, hips and knees. As a consequence I had a very poor night's sleep and the following day had to take pain killers as my shoulders were particularly agitated. On examining the mattress it was obvious it was quite old and from a low cost mattress factory. It definitely wasn't in the same league as Sealy, King Coil, and Maddison beds found in quality accommodation. The room was spacious but quite dated and bathroom fittings were from the eighties with obvious wear and tear. The view was ok but not as spectacular as portrayed in the advertising blurb. Full credit to the cleaning staff for making such a dated room feel clean and hygienic. There is no breakfast included in the tariff and the dining option is part of a separate business called Albert & Co. Albert & Co do a first rate breakfast and their coffee and food is of a high standard. Their staff are also pleasant and helpful which is more than what I could say for Bellevue's front-of-house staff. Bellevue's staff were quite perfunctory and failed to offer up-to-date information; such as, you didn't require a password to access WiFi which was contrary to that stated on the room card holder. My best advice to someone wishing to visit Lakes Entrance is to stay somewhere else, and dine at Albert & Co which is open to the public, and not restricted only to Bellevue's guests.

The moment we made a booking,I ask if there is an available room , I was told they were fully book and i was given a higher price which is totally ok as it is a last minute bookin! Hence,i was given 470aud/night???? and when i told them i will check in the website they have given me another rate which they said there is an availability but it is so expensive, hence since i have experience working in hotel industry i know how the system works, so i look for a booking on a website and found a cheapest one which they said not available! 394aud for 2 nights?see the staff is not telling the truth! the next day! we arrive i requested to have a view on a lakes since i am pregnant and we only stay for 2 nights and most of the time is stayed in the room , i am willing to pay, we were told again no avaialble, but thats ok, hence we went to the mini bar fridge and found no water, the cups are so dity that we need to clean, the beds is disgusting as there are some stain???? a blood stain??? so i need to sanitize the entire room, i ask fora bottle of water if they provided! but i got a response from a receptionist that they don't provide but there is a tap water in the toile!!!!!!! how disgusting it is! telling a pregnant women with a toddler to drink a tap water in the toilet, !!!!!! how pathetic there answer is!!!!! lastly, we were told that there is an indoor heated pool. my goodness their heated pool is so greasy even the jacuzzi!!!!! not good to offer in our friends!!!!!! this is totally a disgrace not value for money!!!! and they ruin our anniversary celebration!!!!!! do not check-in here!!!! you will be given a horrible experience!!!

Nil privacy unless you shut every blind and have the lights on. main bedroom window faces straight into next apartment's outdoor seating area & hotel driveway. Only a block out blind so either be in total dark or let everyone look in. Lounge kitchen view was very pleasant but back road traffic noise was high. Same issue again with privacy. Not even a screen door so you could let fresh air in without flies or mozzie. No smart tv only a old DVD and no instructions on how to use it. Bathroom was good size but needs better cleaning. Kitchen fridge pretty knocked around. For the price per night, I expected a lot better.

Lots of good facilities on site. Friendly staff all the way through. Great place to relax and think about how to explore. Need to keep on top of maintenance though as a few things didn't work as expected.

The Good: excellent location, on the Esplanade with water and floating restaurants across the road and a number of other eateries within walking distance. Spacious rooms that are nicely decorated. Big, comfy beds. Big TV. Soft carpet. Good airconditioning. Clean room - at least when we arrived. The Bad (1): we stayed 5 nights and could not get our room cleaned ONCE. We had put the "Please Make Up Our Room" hanger on our doorknob for 2 days in a row after going to the beach and then depositing sand in the bathroom when getting out of our bathers to shower. We even requested at reception to have our room cleaned and was told they don't clean the rooms mid-stay "because of COVID" Well, our family is all fully vaccinated and asymptomatic. If their staff have COVID, they should not be working and if they have symptoms they should be isolating. It just sounded like an excuse to save on cleaning staff wages. When guests are paying $240 per night, we have a right to have our room cleaned ONCE in 5 days. So we put up with a sandy bathroom for 3 days. It was because of this refusal to clean our room that we boycotted the in-house cafe Albert and Co. Instead, we ate regularly at Nick's just down the road and Salty Groms a bit further along the Esplanade. The Bad (2): Bring your earplugs, because you're going to hear every, fart, footstep, conversation, argument and laugh from your immediate and not-so-immediate neighbours. On our first night some idiots upstairs were running around knocking on each others doors and conducting loud conversations at 11:30pm at night. On our last night, there was what sounded like a classroom full of kids upstairs running around screaming and laughing after 10:30. By 11:00pm I'd had enough and, being unable to contact reception, took matters into my own hands. Went upstairs, knocked on the door of room 33 and politely told the 12? 13? year old girl who answered the door that we could hear everything that they were doing, that we were trying to sleep and could they keep it down? They appeared to be unsupervised. Don't ask me what their parents were doing. Whoever built the establishment clearly cut corners on soundproofing. The Bad (3): No toaster. No microwave. No phone. A pissy little fridge that you could not even call a mini fridge. Seriously? Again at $240 per night, these are basic amenities. Note to management: if you want to see good amenities, and learn how to run an accommodation business well, check in to Bright Colonial Motel, in Bright, Victoria The Bad (4): There are a number of maintenance issues that look as though they've been ignored for a long time. Refer to the photos. At $240, you already know what I'm going to say. I expect better and deserve better. The Bad (5): Firm pillows. BYO pillows if you like 'em soft and fluffy. Not a dealbreaker. I've run my own retail business and my family has run 2 motels. Good operators do their best to keep their guests/customers happy and accommodate reasonable requests. I could forgive the maintenance issues and noise if we could have had our room cleaned the ONE TIME we requested it. That's part of the service. If you're not going to provide the full service, you should not be charging your full tariff of $240 per night. Failing to provide the usual basic appliances/amenities is also inexcusable. What the management/owner fails to realise is that repeat business and referrals from previous guests help build and maintain your business, which PAYS YOUR WAGES. We won't be back to Bellevue and we'll tell our friends and family to avoid Bellevue as well. That's how it works guys.

Absolute nightmare..aircon doesn’t work..bathroom drains are blocked of a so called Executive Spa Suit…no one seems to care..front office sucks..no one even dare to share the email IDs of the property manager..surprised to know they don’t inspect the electricals of the room before letting it out to their guests…it’s been more than a day the front desk was notified about the aircon issue..they r still trying to get someone from maintenance..no one else can do nothing other then a maintenance person hilarious and their is none in house..inspite of they knowing about the occupants older age and sensitive health conditions they didn’t bother to consider this as an emergency request..instead they had been suggesting us to adjust and move the occupants to other rooms…wwooowww…. Attention management of The Lakes Bellevue..time to wake up folks..

We stayed at Bellevue for one night in a family room. These rooms are all located at the very front of the hotel, close to the water, a lovely atrium (full of plants), reception and the cafe/bar area. The room was bright and airy, extremely clean, and spacious enough (just!) for our family of 4 & our two suitcases. The experience was positive enough that we re-booked another a couple of nights a few days later. This time we booked a 2-bed apartment and this experience was very different. All of the apartments are located at the back of the property (also right by the water) and are in a much older building. We were in a ground floor apartment, Number 4, and could hear every footstep, tap & chair scraping from the apartment upstairs, as well as voices. The family weren't being overly noisy - there is just clearly no soundproofing, and this really disrupted our sleep. Our windows all overlooked either another apartment's balcony or bedroom - terrible layouts, meaning we had to keep our blinds closed when getting dressed etc & had no real privacy during the day. There were a lot of paint scuffs on the walls and wear & tear in the apartment - and overall it felt like a cheap cabin rather than a hotel experience. This would be fine if it had been priced and marketed as such, but it wasn't. I will say that the apartment was extremely clean - the cleaning team is clearly great! - and we appreciated having plenty of towels and rubbish bags/laundry powder/shampoo etc etc. Overall: Would stay again in a family room if passing through Lakes Entrance, definitely wouldn't book one of their apartments or recommend them to others. There are much better apartment-style options in the area for the cost. Also worth noting that they don't have an outdoor pool & their indoor pool looks in real need of maintenance.
