Staff are friendly and helpful and their advice on where to eat was spot-on. The room was spotlessly clean - so clean that the shower looked like it didn't have any glass and I even used their pillows and I had my own in the car ! Towels very fluffy and soft, bedding was lovely, and all the little thoughtful extras like homemade biscuits , weather forecast , big bottles of toiletries....I could go on and on. HIGHLY recommend staying here and we definitely will again.

Perfect room (5) for my wife, adult daughter and I for a one night stopover. Room was very spacious, spotlessly clean and lots of nice touches. Check in/out couldn't have been easier. We were made extremely welcome and given lots of useful info re bars and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again if we come back to Lakes Entrance.

The Sandbar Boutique Motel was a real treat to stay at, Fiona & Shawna made you feel very welcome with a beautiful place to stay. The rooms were lovely & clean & very spacious, the homemade treats were delicious, my fave was the banana cake, my daughters the cookies. The beds were very comfortable, I slept like a log. The raising table was great for my devices too, another wonderful feature, just chatting to Fiona & Shawna you discover more delights about the property. Iโ€™m looking forward to my next visit. Thanks ladies. Ps: found some great shoes at a nearby store Willow Boutique

Overnight stay in Lakes Entrance. There is definite attention to personalised customer service, Fiona was great to deal with from booking to departure. Good location, just a walk up the road to the shops. Very clean and ticked all the boxes and will definitely stay there again on way through next time.

We loved our two nights in a deluxe room. There were lots of little touches which made it feel like home, such as real milk, homemade cookies, tissues and personal welcome notes. The room had lovely & spacious with comfy furnishings, great lighting, a comfortable bed and strong shower. And there was a sheet with the quilt! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘There was a decent sized kitchenette and separate sink & bathroom basin. Great wifi. Coffee maker. Helpful local info. And something weโ€™ve never seen in more than 25 years of international travel - a wet hair towel! Terrific work :)

Very pleasant stay in our deluxe king room. Bed was really comfortable and the sheets were nice and soft. The little touches were what made it a great stay. Home baked goodies are a lovely inclusion. The position was very convenient to the beach and walking into town for dinner. Very friendly

Excellent overnighter in Lakes Entrance. The room was spotlessly clean with all the comforts and some great personal touches. Touches such as expresso machine, affordable mini bar, chocolate basket, lounge and much more was very welcome and unexpected for the price. Great value for money!

Sandbar was clean quiet and comfortable. What more could you want? Well the owners have added in a few luxuries such as topline beds, leather lounge, great coffee machine and home-made baked treats! Location was great- an easy walk to shops and cafes.

We stayed several nights and are very happy we chose Sandbar. Single storey (no noise from upstairs) on the main road and only a minute to the city centre. Fiona and Shawna were great hosts with plenty of tips on where to eat and visit.The unit was well presented with several extras we didn't expect. Nespresso machine , iron and ironing board plus cakes that would appear daily. Nice pool and a gazebo with plenty of seating. We will be back
