A group of us went out for dinner and the debacle started with cocktails that were that disgusting we all sent them back. Then on to the dinner service - orders taken then told 10 mins later some choices not available. Once we did receive our food the lamb and roo were well done - not the nice pink inside they are meant to be. All in all the food is horrible. Service from staff was crap until the manager come out and looked after us instead. Def. not worth the most expensive meal in town. also asked for a tax invoice the following day after realizing our credit card was charged some ridiculous amount but it was never emailed through to us after several attempts.

We arrived at the Walkabout Lodge after 2 weeks camping. The staff were friendly and the restaurant and pool area were well kept. The family room however were disappointing. There was a constant smell throughout, water marks on the carpet and the double bed soft and rolls into the middle. The bright light from outside shone into the room all night. We arranged a late checkout due to babies sleep time and were told once he was down we need to checkout at 10am. It would of been nice to be informed about this earlier. This just topped our stay off as ONE lady at reception would not budge. Disappointing!!!!
Food and service at the restaurant was nice.

Have been to this restaurant a few times for dinner and few for lunch. Lunches are great although expensive. Dinners are ordinary and very expensive. The managers attempt to make it fancy and don't succeed. Recently had dinner for my birthday and we were all very disappointed. The service was great that night but can be hit and miss. The venue is really nice with a beautiful pool to swim and have cocktails or a coffee. I'm a soy drinker, often I go to get coffee and they don't have soy milk, this can be frustrating as it is sometimes the only place you can get coffee. Saying all that, it is a remote area and we all rely on the barge to deliver our produce so there is a possibility there is no soy in town. I am
Being nice and giving them the benefit of a doubt???

Hi Tracey & thank you for your comments here, I will be sure to take them up with our Restaurant Manager and Chef. I know we always try and keep soy milk in stock, but sometimes we can run short.
We are always trying to make things better so your comments are appreciated & will be made aware of with our management team.

I must admit, did not know what to expect, and I think that worked in its favour! The bar staff where lovely, very welcoming!

The lads in the kitchen did a great job with my steak, mushroom sauce was great, will be back for the remainder of the nights for dinner!

A little different than I was expecting, Not as quite as it could have been, aircon was very noisy, The noise from people walking around not watching what they were doing was a bit disappointing they could not respect others.

Only issue was very poor pillows flat as anything

Thank you for your review Sue.
I will speak to our housekeeping department to check the pillows in all of the rooms and replace any that maybe below standard.

Unfortunately the older style box aircon's are sometimes a bit noisy, but they are the most efficient & reliable for our area, but we are working on a program of upgrading them to quieter splits.

Thank you once again for your feedback & comments as this gives us a chance to improve on your guest experience.
