Property quality was reflected in the price. Old decor and is in desperate need of a refit with rotten skirting and bad paint and fittings. You get what you pay for and this is on par with cheap backpacker accommodation.

Water front views with balcony. Close to Lakes Entrance shops. Nice suite/room. Kitchenette shelves could do with an update.

Dark patch on the floor of bedroom, general worn-out condition of carpets, outdoor furniture. Garden overgrown. But a good location; receptionist was fairly anxious to please

The room was smelly, carpets were dirty, bed/mattress very uncomfortable, bathroom not clean to accommodation standards, cutlery was dirty, I had to wash the forks before I could use them, lamp shade broken. Overall the worst stay I have ever had. Also the reception area dirty and very smelly of smoke, even though it was indicated to be non smoking everywhere. Parcels were everywhere on the ground in the reception area. The attendant tried his best, but the facilities are just not up to standard, major revamp required. Cannot get over the dirty carpets and smelly room. Very disappointing.

I didn't like the Curtains on the Balcony window/door in the Room they didn't close well enough and the Balcony Door didn't lock. The Carpet was wet from recent cleaning.

Able Tasman was clean, tidy, very comfortable and close to everything. We had a water view room which was lovely.
