Wonderful ambience overlooking the lake and rainforest, plus beautiful carvings by Jack Wilms. Have visited with great satisfaction before for lunch, but this time was disappointed with the food. Very unappetising 3 out of 4 meals, although we saw some great traditional (burgers etc.) meals...More

How disappointing! I do understand that your husbands burger if it was reported to our staff would have been rectified. Salmon can be quite personal perhaps when you order again you could ask that it be on the medium rare side rather than well done....More

Secrets by the lake at Montville is a beautiful secluded location, with wonderful views of the lake, great food and a place to celebrate a very special occasion. The accommodation provided is definitely 5 star plus.
