I stay at the Sandbar often when I am in Lakes Entrance. The rooms are clean, yes a little aged, but the new management are working on that progressively. The staff are delightful. The water presure in the Shower is amazing!!!! At the end of the day it is a good value place to stay, that doesn't pretend to be anything that it is not.

We arrived at 7.45pm and were assisted by Kellie with local eatery ideas and times of closing. Issues with our Wi-Fi were dealt with immediately, even though it was our computer that had the problem! We left a jacket in the wardrobe, which we were only aware of after receiving a phone call from Kellie. The jacket was posted on request to our home address. Great service.

The location was good. The room, although dated suited us. The WiFi did not work in our room which was out of range. We reported this but nothing could be done about it. The owner was aware of this problem.
