The room wasn't that clean but the view we had of the lake was amazing. Meals are expensive and there's nothing special about it. Very disappointing breakfast. Continental breakfast only had 2 types of fruits, milk,small boxes of cereals and milk. I can't take dairy and there wasn't any other sort of milk available so had to eat only 2... More

I must say the lake itself is really beautiful and the location is nicely secluded away from the hustle bustle of the city set in a nice tranquil area in the middle of the Northern Territory. However, on our arrival the receptionist screened us from head to tow as if we were from a different species, it was very obvious... More

We stayed in a King Spa Suite which overlooked the water perfectly. The spa was located on the private balcony overlooking the Lake, which was bloody sensational. From the staff, the food, the overall service and our stay, we were most pleased and will definitely return for a great little escape from Darwin. The rooms are a little dated but... More

We stayed for 2 nights and had no preconceptions about the resort. Our room was clean and adequate, if not 'resort' level in presentation but that suited us fine. We upgraded to the "Spa Suite" which turns out meant we had a 2 person (just) spa bath on the smallish deck of our cabin that was constructed (adjoined/connected) as one... More

Good facilities but a little overpriced considering it's more money for canoe hire and more again for golf and mini golf. No reason why this couldn't be part of the accommodation. Also got to factor in meals and it adds up quickly.

Got to our room and was disappointed. Promote itself as a resort but the room was a standard caravan park style cabin. The TV did not work. The bathroom smelled like sewerage and the pool was tiny and nowhere near resort style. No WiFi or phone reception. We were there for an hour or so when the power went out.... More

We were here for 2 nights. The location is absolutely beautifull. The sunset is gorgeous. The food in the restaurant is good,The breakfast is average, the service was very friendly. The room was clean. But then the mixed feeling on the grounds. It feels that you're going back in the 70 's ( But it is build in the 90's...)... More

I made this booking for my partner and I and while the service on all counts was great, that's pretty much where it ended. The rooms, for starters, are very below average. I booked a Spa "suite" , this was nothing like a suite. We walked around and thought "we must be missing something". The pool is tiny and we... More

Stayed here for a conference in August. Absolutely loved the resort it's in a great place and is very relaxing. Had a lakefront suite, the rooms were well appointed and it's a nice touch having a jacuzzi on the balcony. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.
