Many issues with this place. We stayed in Apartment 1 which was awkwardly laid out with no view, and lots of noise from accompanying apartment. Most frustratingly, they advertise free wifi but it is so slow that isn’t remotely functional. We had better internet access with our mobile 3G despite basically no mobile reception either (with Telstra). There was an unpleasant damp odour throughout. However, location is definitely a plus with a short walk into town.

In February 2020, we booked a 3 night stay for late February at 5 Knots in Metung. This was part of a longer trip to the Gippsland area in response to regional requests for increased tourism to assist economic re-building after the then tragic and widespread bushfires. On 5 Knots request, we paid in full. Shortly after booking, Covid and (the first) lockdown happened. We wrote a polite message to 5 Knots asking for our payment to be refunded, and wishing them well at this difficult time. There was no response beyond an email stating our funds were now a 'guest credit'. This was in contrast to the helpful responses from our other Gippsland bookings. Subsequently, we re-booked twice in 2020, both cancelled due to lockdowns. We finally got to 5 Knots in April 2021 (off-peak). However, 5 Knots (which had retained our payment in full for over a year) informed us that we would now need to pay another $180 for unspecified additional costs. Conclusion: money, not service or decency, rules at 5 Knots. A pity. And our apartment was tired and a disappointment. Stay elsewhere.

Metung is a lovely village on the Gippsland Lakes. Our accomodation was within walking distance of all the town's amenities. Our bed was very comfortable. Facilities were of high quality. Heating was great as it was wet and windy outside. We will come back.

Booked 2 apartments for 5 people - 5 bedrooms so we didnt need to share bedrooms. Prior to checking in got a phone call to say that due to leaks in the ceiling , one bedroom was unusable , there were no other rooms available so 2 of us had to share. Arrived and found 3 buckets in the 2 bedroom apartment negating the use of 1 bedroom - there were also leaks in the passage and more buckets. Then up to the 3 bedrroom "penthouse" we discovered 3 more unreported leaks so we put out buckets to catch the water. During our 2 day stay we had the constant background , drip , drip , drip. We were given a small discount , but that's not the point. 5 Knots touts itself as a 5* hotel. I've been fortunate enough to have stayed in 5* hotels - 5 knots metung is a whole different level. 5 knots metung also has a totally impersonal check-in and contact process.

Dear Born To Roll Thank you for taking the time to provide me with your feedback. The storms that passed down the east coast of Australia - as you would be aware - caused a major weather event with torrential rain. We did phone you prior to your arrival and advised you of the unfortunate situation. I am very sorry that this occurred prior to your arrival and if we could have done anything to stop that water we would have -I do understand that this would have impacted your stay with us and I am sorry that happened. We do not have a reception on site - the units are self checkin and contactless, yet there is a call button onsite that is answered 24/7 for anyone requiring assistance. I apololgise for this inconvenience during your stay and do wish you happy and safe travels in the future Kind regards Melissa

Metung is a beautiful spot on the Gippsland Lakes and well worth a visit. We chose this place mainly because of its proximity to the water and the view and it did not disappoint in that regard. What did let it down was the cleanliness and the furnishings in the apartment. The place had been cleaned but there was an old tissue on the floor under the sideboard and spiders in the spa which is not a good look when you are paying the sort of money they are charging to stay here. The furniture is cheap and mean - the only couch is a 1.5 seater which is ridiculous and impossible for 2 people to sit on. The outdoor furniture on the balcony consists of 2 bar stools which are very uncomfortable to sit on after a while. For those wanting to sit out on the balcony with a glass of something and enjoy the water views for more than half an hour, perhaps a small café table and 2 chairs would not go amiss. All in all this is a well positioned property that is spoilt by scrimping on furnishings and maintenance.
