Refurbishment is very nice. Room was clean & well appointed. View over lake was nice. Mateys caravan at the front of the property was a godsend with fantastic coffee and food. The girls running it were lovely. Only minor issue is accessing The Esplanade from the Belmont end can be tricky in busy traffic times otherwise a great stay.

We enjoyed the location so close to the water and access to the walking track, and made good use of the food caravan out front. Our stay was very enjoyable.

Good Morning Karina, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay, thanks for the great feedback. We love our location too, and have spent these last few months fully renovating the rooms & bathrooms including new pillow top beds and new wifi. And we have to agree the Mateys Coffee Caravan out the front is great, and so popular. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Regards The Esplanade Motel Management Team

Covid safe check in, very clean and great location, the queen bed in the room was actually comfy. Only downfall was the restaurant above the room as we were travelling with a baby it was annoying to hear so many noises until 10.30ish.. id stay here again but request a different room.
