Very comfortable resort - amenities are clean and the water soft and fresh! The pool area is very relaxing and cool on a hot day. The Motel side of the resort is modern - powered sites are roomy and mostly grassed - take an extra power lead as the power boxes are central for a few sites. Most importantly take... More

Thank you Lyn for taking the time to write a review. Insects at certain times of the year can be pesky, they do come and go with the seasons and unfortunately out of our control despite our attempts to curb them. We have in the last year or so enlarged our sites which has been well received and continue a... More

Room was very small and dated, led astray by the name - Lakeside does not necessarily mean lakeside, a reasonable place to stay if you are just passing through. Quite a distance from the town which did not appear to be a place to wander around after dark

David, Thankyou for taking time to write a review. It is true some of our standard motel rooms do not have water views. All guests at Lakeside can enjoy great sunsets and water views from the lawned area with tables and chairs along the waters edge and also from our large resort pool near Sails Bistro.

Stayed at the Lakeside resort after a road trip from Broome and enjoyed it so much we extended our stay. It is a great place in a good position. The room we had was lovely (king + single) and overlooked the pool. The lagoon area is beautiful and the view from shore at sunset just stunning. This resort is understated... More

HI, We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Lakeside. Yes, the sunsets here and our location are amazing, not that we want to keep it a secret. Thanks for letting people know, the secret is out now.

We stayed here once a fortnight for three months as our break from working in the bush. Staff and facilities were great, friendly and helpful. Having the restaurant and bar beside the pool makes it very convenient. Don't forget to try one of Carol's Red Grapefruit Cocktails they certainly help with the relaxing.

Our room was one of the new rooms looking over the pool, with a view of the lake. The room was quite big, modern, very comfortable and clean. There was a full sized fridge and king bed in the room. We had Continental breakfast included in our room fee, which was yummy with local fresh mango, etc. The staff of... More

Thank you for taking time to review our Resort. Yes, it is true that some things are not operating during the wet/low season, but you did get to enjoy the peace and quiet of virtually having the resort to yourselves. The premier king rooms are corporate motel style and true they do not have cooking facilities. Our resort has several... More

We stayed here over the Christmas period in a motel room overlooking the pool. We found it clean and comfortable. I think these rooms have been recently renovated. There was a full sized fridge and king bed in the room. The staff, due to it being Christmas and off peak season, was only 1 person. She was very helpful and... More

Thank you Patrick for taking time to write your review. Yes, you are correct the Premier King rooms were renovated in April 2014, giving guests corporate city style comfort. These rooms overlook the pool, lawns and the lake with wide verandah which is a great spot to sit and watch the Kimberley storms and enjoy the wet season. Even though... More

Well I didn`t stay in the newly upgraded unit but the older self contained cabin and it is pretty outdated and also a dark room, smelt a bit musky.
