We had been warned that this resort had gone down hill but there was no where else for us to stay at short notice. This is such a shame as the lake is beautiful but having said that there is nowhere to walk around the lake, just a view. There are kayaks for hire though. Our Lake view room had... More

First the up-side: beautiful lake, safe for all kinds of water activities, swimming kayaking, sail boarding, fishing and boating. Probably good for big/community groups. Now the down-side: old, tired and run down. The only accommodation I would recommend would be the lake-side rooms, and whilst your view of the lake is right from the edge, that is the only redeeming... More

Great place , recently had very pleasant stay with my family, watched a beautiful sunset over the lake from the pool ,and onto the resturant for a lovely dinner. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. Stayed in the lakeside rooms overlooking the water. Very special place.

Lake Bennett resort is located in a very secluded area. The views over the lake are very pretty and peaceful. The food at the restaurant wasn't very good but unless you take your own food there isn't much choice in eating there as there is nothing close by. Spa on the balcony was very relaxing. Overall I enjoyed my stay... More

It must have been nice a few years ago, but now the golf course is a mess (but ok to watch kangaroos) and the buildings quite dingey. The standard rooms are like a 70's motel - small and dark with the car immediately outside, so we upgraded to a lakeside view which was great to watch the sunsets and more... More

This accommodation will need a lot of attention before it becomes acceptable at the prices being charged. We initially booked a lake view room but after long day hiking and a dry dusty ride, on being shown a spa room we upgraded at AUS$20 per night. Big mistake. The spa is bath-shaped and has the mechanics of a spa, but... More

As heard from others, thought of going there for a picnic. But we were wrong, the place is privately managed and only people staying allowed for picnic or leisure activities. So, not recommend if you only seeking for a picnic. The drive is ok from Darwin and took nearly 1 hour.

The website makes this resort look so classy. The natural surrounds are indeed beautiful but as previous reviews have stated- very poor management. It was $20 to hire a BBQ so we ate at the restaurant. A few options on the simple menu which is fine but $20 for a parmigiana and it was tiny, over cooked and served with... More

Surely is a hidden gem in the territory. Such a lovely spot for a get away. Room was nice right on the lake with a gorgeous view of the lake. You can hire canoes and have a swim.

Beautiful location right on the lake the resort has endless possibilities but it is poorly managed everything is old and dirty. The restaurant and bar were not appealing. What a shame the golf course and driving range are so run down they are not useable. In the end I suppose you get what you pay for, have paid less and... More
