My wife and I both well travelled around domestic and overseas. We book the rooms three week before our arrival. Five families all up with 9 rooms, upon arrival everyone is surprise as they requested our credit card and deducted into my account very unusual. Anyway we proceeded to the rooms that we booked. Then we found out rooms are...

Not much to add that hasn't already been said... We arrived to be informed by the manager that she would like to upgrade us for only $40 to a lake view room. We accepted. Room had no functioning a/c or TV. We had been informed that TV had been fried from a lightning strike. Apparently this made it alright. Room...

This was a strange experience largely driven by the owner, who also runs the place and, as she pointed out owns all the land and the lake round the hotel. In my experience when an owner runs a business, quirky things creep in. We arrived late afternoon, very tired from a long drive, but on hearing our story, she upgraded...

I stayed in a lake side room around Christmas as last minute decision. Went out despite the horrible reviews.... Unfortunately i did not feel very well at all & either did my family members after the Christmas lunch. (May be a lot of truth to the NT New article.) It was very hard to get service for a drink.. bar...

We had a beautiful meal cooked by Carolyn's new Chef, Mark. Local barramundi, grilled to perfection, with local Tahitian lime and yummy hot chips. Generous serves, friendly service and a good wine list. We couldn't be happier!

Stayed here with our families when detouring from Dundee beach. We felt the rates are bit above the market, but no complaints as we enjoyed the view expect weather. Always recommended to book a lake view even though bit pricy, those are the best rooms. The deck also a nice place to sit and relax.

We went to Lake Bennett at the last minute and were so glad to be fitted in for Christmas Day lunch. Again at the last minute we decided to stay for a couple of nights and it was one of the best couple of days. The room was a Spa Room that has a beautiful view across the waters. Everything...

It was a fantastic venue for our special Christmas family get together. This was the first time for so many of our family around Australia to get together with ages ranging from baby to our 84 yo mother. I was tasked to organize (at short notice) all 30 of us to go to Lake Bennett. The management was so helpful,...

We had been warned that this resort had gone down hill but there was no where else for us to stay at short notice. This is such a shame as the lake is beautiful but having said that there is nowhere to walk around the lake, just a view. There are kayaks for hire though. Our Lake view room had...
