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

We went to lake Bennett for christmas as we have not long been in Darwin. The website shows a lovely lakeside room. yes the view is spectacular but that is it. The reception was very rude and abrupt. Then we arrived at the room it is like a hall with walls between. It smelt mouldy, the carpet had bugs on... More

We were enticed here by the promise of a jacuzzi tub overlooking the lake. The premium rates suggested we would have luxurious accomodation. When we talked with the "resort" staff, we were told that the "five star" restaurant would stay open for us so we could have dinner after a long day in Licthfield national park. (The park is one...

It is a gorgeous location especially when an evening breeze kicks in after 4.30 pm. The sunset can be viewed from the suites. However that is where I will have to be real. The rooms need attention- the walls are yellow, the linen is orange and the towels are a burnt old orange. There are marks of dead midgies on... More

We stayed here for a weekend (2-nights) after I purchased a BuyMeNT voucher. We paid the extra $50 to stay in a Spa Suite, upgrading from the Lakeview rooms, but in all honesty, it wasn't worth it. The Spas are feed from the lake and the water is muddy brown and not at all relaxing - my son refused to... More

Stayed for one night only, Wish we had stayed for 2 nights as there was no enough time to relax and enjoy the lake, The room was nice a big. We had a lake view room, The only problem was that there was a tree right in front of the room so could not see much. As there is not... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in a lakeside spa room. Our first impression was that our room was overpriced, the view was lovely but the room was dated and the spa was filthy. When I spoke to the housekeeper the next day she was very rude and blunt. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

We checked in for a long weekend break here hoping for a bit of a bush break with the mod cons. Firstly, for the cost you are expecting a decent 4-4.5 star property. I understand and appreciate you need to pay a bit more when you are in remote locations for the extra cost of delivering goods and services but... More
