In response to the growing concerns around the spread of COVID-19, we wanted to take the opportunity to share the extra protective measures The Lakes Hotel is taking to support our staff and patrons through this challenging time. We are taking all reasonable steps to mitigate any risk of infection both within the venue and to the wider community and those most vulnerable, while continuing to serve our customers to the highest standard.

In addition to our already diligent standards of hygiene and cleanliness, we have adopted the following practices:

·       Hand sanitizer is available at the bistro and all bars

·       Increased food safety measures

·       Regular wiping down of all hard surfaces/eftpos facilities/door handles and commonly touched surfaces with antibacterial spray

·       More regular cleaning of amenities

·       Ensuring staff members practice exceptional personal hygiene

·       Monitoring staff wellness and providing education on the requirements of self-isolation

 These measures should cause minimal disruption to your experience within our venue so we hope you will continue to support our business while it is safe to do so.


Always popular with both locals and tourists, The all new The Lakes has been completely restored to the high standard of its heyday in the 40’s, where people from the busy cities of Sydney and Newcastle would come to escape the rush and bustle of city life.

The Lakes is still the perfect staging point for anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy the sensational beaches and waterways The Entrance & the Central Coast has to offer. Whether you are into fishing, boating, surfing, swimming or just relaxing this is the ideal destination for you.

The Lakes has been a regular finalist in many categories at the annual AHA Awards for Excellence including taking out the award for Best Draught Beer at the 2017 awards.

We also have mix of tastefully renovated modern rooms with balconies and also some budget style rooms. All of our rooms have shared bathroom facilities.
