Tranquil, serene scenery with spectacular sunsets. Great water Park facilities for fishing, canoeing, sailing, rowing, electric boats with safe no croc swimming. Safe secure and friendly facilities for families. Great food especially the seafood and steaks

If there was a lower score I would unfortunately have rated it lower. Beautiful spot but service unaceptable bad and facility in need of a good makeover. Travel to Batchelor for accommodation and meals.

We turned off the Stuart Highway because it was lunchtime and we saw an inviting sign saying this resort had a bar and restaurant - "Now Open" - it was only seven kilometres away. It was extremely disappointing that, after the very nice receptionist had welcomed us and gone to advise her boss we were there for a meal, this... More

What a beautiful place! Rooms were very nice, we had a great balcony with views of the Lake. Shame the Customer service was pretty average especially when being greeted by Mrs Cranky pants at the front counter. Room prices were reasonable but food & drinks prices were a little on the expensive side.

Some six kilometers off Stuart Highway this very nice place to stay can be found. Many options to choose from from cabin to lakeside view motelroom. Rooms are clean, well maintained and come with al amneties like fridge, tv, airco, etc. Parking right in front of the room. Restaurant service is poor. Not even a third of the menu is... More

This place is a long way from anywhere interesting. The exterior is in need of a refresh and the interior was mediocre when new. The rooms were clean and adequate. The bed was OK but not the best. The place does not have wi-fi or potable water! You must drink bottled water. The air conditioning needed a special key (on... More

we stayed overnight at the start of a weekend, just for a bit of a relax and fish. Had seen the rooms before, they are a little basic for the price but still ok with very nice views. Could certainly do with an upgrade. Facilities are average. Being confronted by a sign that says STRICTLY NO PICKNICKING, STRICTLY NO BYO... More

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
