Booking in for a 3 day mid-week break for husband and I in a Lakeview Suite had its moments. The room was comfortable and clean with an amazing view. However, we had the first Suite which required removing the outside light to deter bugs, toads and more bugs. The first night was spent getting bugs off the bed and out... More

Stayed for one Night. Food was exellent and service is great. Rooms are very clean. Not a lot of Tourist around, I liked that. It was a bid to cold to swimm in the Lake, but the small Pool was very refreshing and clean.

On our arrival we found us to be the only couple at the resort so our dinner was served to us in our room. This suited us after being on the road most of the day. We did not receive any house cleaning for our 2 night stay and got provided with extra towels etc. Would have thought that would... More

My wife and I stayed at Lake Bennett Wilderness Resort on the 31/05/14 for 1 night. We found the location and service very good. Having drinks out on the terrace at sunset was amazing followed by dinner in the restaurant which was superb. Upon checking-in the receptionist told my wife about sunset on the terrace and we weren't disappointed.

The Lake Bennett resort is a great place to stay and visit, but there are problems here that need to be addressed ! The Chef changes almost every month, and therefore the menu is not always available in its entirety. There seems to be a problem with food, despite the fact that they are only 100 KM from Darwin (...

Where to begin...I made this booking for an overnight stay - family of 2 adults, 3 kids under 7. Booked a room with 2 queen beds on the Lake. Sounds lovely, and felt welcome when making booking over the telephone. Different story when we arrived.. the same lady who took my booking was not very welcoming when we checked in.... More

Overnight stay in a "Resort Suite". The room was nothing like a Resort Suite. Three people booked in and only two coffee Mugs. Bedspreads where faded and the queen bed badly needed a new mattress because the springs scrunched even when we sat of the bed. The lake is beautiful and but that is about all. When checking out and... More

The service was similar to that received in many Darwin establishments, ie they act as if they are doing you a favour by allowing you to stay there! There was no hello or welcome. The room was so overpriced - even by Darwin standards - $230 for a drab and dingy room with a spa on the verandah. The spa... More

Lake Bennett is close enough to Darwin to have a nice break. We went for Xmas Eve and Xmas day. The Xmas lunch was good albeit a bit late in coming out. I thought it a bit expensive @ $85 per head( Food Only) but it's not something you do often. The staff were great and the young guy behind... More
