Stayed here with our families when detouring from Dundee beach. We felt the rates are bit above the market, but no complaints as we enjoyed the view expect weather. Always recommended to book a lake view even though bit pricy, those are the best rooms. The deck also a nice place to sit and relax.

We went to Lake Bennett at the last minute and were so glad to be fitted in for Christmas Day lunch. Again at the last minute we decided to stay for a couple of nights and it was one of the best couple of days. The room was a Spa Room that has a beautiful view across the waters. Everything...

It was a fantastic venue for our special Christmas family get together. This was the first time for so many of our family around Australia to get together with ages ranging from baby to our 84 yo mother. I was tasked to organize (at short notice) all 30 of us to go to Lake Bennett. The management was so helpful,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
