I popped in with my girl for a quick bite. Our expectations were very low as the local offering is generally depressing at best, but as we entered we were pleasantly surprised. The menu was impressive, wine list was well priced and selected.. All in all, a good first impression. Don't get me wrong, this venue is rustic with a... More

Pleasant and efficient. Just need to check that you get all you order foodwise. I had a vodka and tomato sauce without the vodka and a salad appeared without the advertised olives. Setting calm around the pool with options to sit undercover or in the Sun.

The room was a little on the small side, but comfortable with all the required amenities. Nice little lounge area, and upstairs bedroom. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food at the restaurant was excellent. Loved having everything we needed on the premises, didn't have to venture out in the night to find a place to eat -... More

As a guest within a larger group I had no say in where we were going to eat and after stopping for drinks the previous day this wouldn't have been my first choice. Regardless of where you are seated there is a constant buzzing from the kitchen when a food order is ready. Having large dogs in a public eating... More

Pleasant atmosphere. Food plain but tasty. Lamb curry well cooked and tender. Loved the dogs lying around - understand why no pets allowed. Service okay. While young waiter was pleasant the Manageress was rather offhand. Would not bother to visit again.

This was our second visit to Bingelela, and once again, we weren't disappointed. The accommodation has been tastefully renovated, with thoughtful touches. The bedside lamps are the first we've ever encountered which actually allow one to read in bed! Meals are generous and very tasty, with an excellent wine-list. Overall, a great stay.
