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

The accomodation was perfect. We had a family room so the kids had their own room. There were 3 rooms of us in total. The rooms were perfectly clean and fully well equipped and the owners provided home made baked goods which were amazing!

Sandbar motel at Lakes Entrance is a fabulous little place with little special touches that make you feel good, like home-made bickies and chockies on your bed. The room was pristine and a lot of thought has been put into personalising the room so that it doesn’t feel like just another motel. Towels had inadvertently been missed in our room and Shawna & Fiona had very graciously left us a lovely bottle of wine as a “sorry.” Totally unnecessary, but very much appreciated. It shows that these girls care about their patrons. Good work girls!

Wonderful hosts, lots of kind attention to detail and assistance with where to visit. Bed and bedsheets were amazing. Well equiped little kitchenette. Great hot shower! Great parking. So many thoughtful touches. Nothing was too much trouble. The least we can do is give them a fantastic review!

There’re lots of motels along this waterfront roadway in Lakes Entrance. I think we just chose The Sandbar based on the name. And we’re very glad we did. It’s in a top location within walking distance of dining places and Fiona & Shawner were very welcoming. The room was clean and well equipped, including a chocolate on a board with the next day’s forecast. Lovely touches like this make an impression. We were also pleased that the room had a kitchenette so we could self cater our breakfast. If you go this way, I strongly recommend you choose this place to stay.

Had an exceptional stay at the Sandbar. Greeted with a smile and fresh biscuits. Room had quality bedding and appliances. I also appreciated the use of dispensers in the bathroom rather than little plastic bottles. The location was convenient; not too far to walk to shops and explore the Lakes Entrance Beach.
