Family two night stay for Sports Event in Central Coast Our room was tidy and although very tired was OK, all of the employees we have dealt with have been excellent, unfortunately for them their efforts are in vain, have you heard the saying it's like trying to polish a t*rd ? The entire faculty is a run down train...

Definitely the worst hotel I've stayed in. That's about it from a computer sized television to smelly carpets and broken towel rails. Doors in the hallway kicked in and in desperate need of repair. Do not even consider this one.

We found the hotel to be clean. It was however very poorly maintained. They are very cheep. For example wouldn't supply extra rolls of Toilet paper or any tissues or shampoo. They couldn't supply second key cards. The vent on the ceiling of our shower fell of right after my wife showered causing a mess and scaring her. I would...

Hey peeps I stayed at the El Lago Waters Resort at The Entrance Saturday 03/12/16 for the night. Here is my review.

They tell me they don't have a lift in the building...

Read the reviews. It is very dated, old plastic flowers and far too many creepy pictures in ornate guilted frames. Picture of a little girl in a white nightgown above our bed. You almost expect to see her in the hallway with dark circles under her eyes. The carpets are filthy and stained. Sheets and bedding was clean but not...

We have been staying at El Largo for the past 7 years in a villa. We have to ring before we arrive to confirm they haven't moved us from our regular villa, which they do every time even though it is noted in their data base not to move us.!! We have noticed a sharp decline in the cleanliness and...

We chose this hotel because of the location (which was super handy) and it looked basic but clean and nice on the website. The three star NRMA rating on hotel does not fit the 3 star criteria for "good standards, well appointed with comfortable furnishings and facilities" - We stayed overnight with 2 kids and there was NO hot water...

As a cheaper priced hotel, El Lago Waters was fine. Yes it could do with some updating but we only slept at the hotel. Most of the time we were out and about as The Entrance is a great place to visit.
