I wish I could keep this place secret but it wouldn't be fair on mine hosts John and Elizabeth. So beautiful. They had stoked up the fire as we had arrived late and it was chilly and they had preheated the hot tub so all we needed was the wine - check. Freshly baked bread on arrival and the facilities...

If you want to escape the rat race and hustle and bustle, STAY HERE. We woke in the morning to ducks waddling about our front door :) We were given beautiful hot bread straight from the oven!! We enjoyed gazing out at the stars at night whilst sitting in our hot outdoor spa! We spent long walks exploring the property... More

The location of Donnelly lakes was stunning. And the cabin had a real earthy feel to it with the wooden decor and the wood fire. We used the wood fire often and it was brilliant after coming out of a lovely spa into a warm cosy hut. I was however disappointed in the fishing, I was excited to hear that... More

I recently had the pleasure of spending 1 night here (dropped in on my Parents time away) and I can say that this is a truly beautiful place. The surroundings are magnificent and the lake and views are great! The wildlife is amazing and the Ducks certainly have a personality of their own..... The owners John and Elizabeth were very...

Yes, Donnelly Lakes is beautiful. However, as a fly fishing destination it is totally misrepresented. My wife and I are experienced fly fishermen. We spent three nights there and, because we have float tubes, were able to fish the whole main dam. We fished Thursday afternoon and the whole of Friday and Saturday. Changed lines, changed flies, changed retrieves, changed... More

The location was lovely, the cabin was very dated and furniture is in need of renewal, bed uncomfortable (too old I suspect). A rat in the cabin the first night and rats in the roof keeping us awake every night. At $295 per night we expected a little more. The excuse was that we were in the bush and to... More

We recently had a family holiday with our two sons at Donnelley Lakes and absolutely loved it. Our sweet, well appointed chalet was nestled amongst the trees and we were visited daily by fairy wrens and the local duck family. We sat on our jetty each night to look at the stars and you are guaranteed an amazing view of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was so peaceful and relaxing. It was great not to have any internet, TV or mobile reception. The location was good for the wineries and Pemberton. The spa and fire was lovely. We will be back!!

I was reading through some of the comments and was dumbfounded by some of the reviews. My girlfriend and I recently stayed and found the place to be absolutely beautiful. Secluded chalets, wonderful ambiance, beautiful lake, well stocked amenities and great service made this a wonderful trip which we will tell our friends about again and again. I can understand...

After friends decided to pay for a 3 night accommodation for my husband's 50th birthday gift, we were all disappointed when on arrival the owner made comments jokingly about not allowing their vehicle in because of the make [only 18 mths old], which upset our friends after paying a huge amount of money for 4 of us as a treat...
