Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a beautiful place and stunning views. Lovely hosts. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the view from the window in the morning was gorgeous. Had a lovely couple of days here. Will definitely be coming back and staying longer next time.

The biggest mistake we made at Karbeethong Lodge was not staying for long enough! Such a magical place in the world. Beautiful setting, you feel like you’re away from it all but only 5 mins drive from Mallacoota and all that offers. You could easily spend a week at the lodge and not cover everything in the area. 5 star hotel the lodge is not, but it never sets itself up as that. It has comfortable rooms that overlook the lake. A great communal cooking area (bring your food and cook - even if you think that’s not your thing. It’s a great set up!) All of that would be awesome but the icing on the cake is Graeme and Jenny, who are impeccable hosts. They’re when you need them to be and also leave you to your own thoughts when that’s what you need. They couldn’t be more helpful or knowledgeable. We live in the other side of the world and in this 3 week trip - this is the place that’s our No.1 must return to spot.

If you are in the area, this is the place to stay. The setting is idyllic, overlooking a lake with wonderful views. Graeme and Jennifer, the owners, add a real stamp of personality to the place and were extremely chatty and helpful, nothing was too much trouble - we really loved it. Keep up the good work and we wish you every success in your venture. Jill and Patrick

Karbeethong Lodge is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. He have stayed there many time and must say the new owners Jennifer and Graeme have done a wonderful job restoring this timepiece along with many upgrades. Wonderful hosts, wonderful venue and never disappoints except when you're leaving you realise you should have booked a for a few more days. Mallacoota is a great holiday destination and to stay in such a nostalgic historic venue like Karbeethong Lodge just tops off the whole experience.

Karbeethong Lodge is a hidden gem. The simple rooms are comfortable, and the view over the lake is gorgeous. Jenny and Graeme are the perfect hosts at this historical guesthouse, ready with tips and advice for the area. There is a big shared kitchen if you want to cook, and a communal sitting room with games, books and a piano. Importantly, there are no TVs in the rooms - you are here to get away from it all. Beautiful walks, boat hire, or just sharing a bottle of red on the verandah. We loved it!

This was our fourth stay at Karbeethong Lodge. It still has all its charm from the first visit 20 years ago. We had an extended stay (4.5 weeks) due to lockdown and Karbeethong Lodge became our second home. While Melbourne and Sydney were under tough lockdown restrictions we felt another world away with the views and tranquility of Karbeethong Lodge. We highly recommend Karbeethong Lodge for a place to escape, connect with nature and enjoy the serenity. Graeme and Jennifer are terrific hosts and make you feel very welcome. Allan & Lou

Having stayed here with our groups back at the end of the 1980's I was very interested to see if this beautiful old place had managed to retain its charm and character.It certainly has with Graeme and Jennifer adding their personal touch to every room - it has been beautifully restored and the furnishings and fine touches which Graeme and Jennifer have added are just wonderful .To come back to the open fire each evening after my walks and enjoy a pre dinner drink and chat in the cozy lounge room was such a delight .I can't wait to return with our groups in September - I'm sure our guests will just love this place .

Aside from the fact that it’s probably the best view in Mallacoota this place is full of charm. The main lounge room with the old piano and fireplace would be enough for me but there really is so much more character in the whole place. The owners are friendly and warm. The breakfast was great and topped off with a beautiful morning view over the lake.

My wife and I spent two nights here in March and loved it. Graham & Jennifer made us feel very welcome and their interaction with all the guests was an added value. Our room was large and comfortable and we felt quite 'at home'. We look forward to visiting again, especially if Graham realises his intention to host a themed weekend, such as a "mystery murder". My wife thought the venue reminiscent of Miss Marple house-guest locations1
