    The sunset views reflected over Lake Bennett and swimming pool.

    Lake Bennett Resort is truly a wilderness resort overlooking a beautiful lake. We found it to be conveniently situated between Litchfield NP and Mary River, but it is a fantastic place for a weekend escape from Darwin. The restaurant is to be highly recommended.

    Nice small hotel close to Litchfield National Park. All basic elements needed for a good stay were there. Quality of food was good. Even with a late arrival, they were very friendly. Do expect a good service level and a nice basic hotel

    fantastic view, really quiet and peaceful, great food, great service

    this lovely older lake resort is far away from the beaten track about 2.5hrs out of darwin, but well worth visiting. the lake's water was amazing. i tasted my expensive bottled water and compared it to the lake and realized there was a huge deference in the quality and freshness. fun to be swimming and paddling in such lovely water.. the food was creative and beautifully prepared. service was perfect. we slept a lot as it was so peaceful. you just wanted to put your head down all the time as this place makes you chill out after a lovely paddle or swim..another good thing: no mobile phone access!..

    Quite a lovely quiet area but the entire site is run down and needs a lot of TLC. The staff and owner are very friendly and certainly make you feel welcome and the deck overlooking the lake is great at sunset. We stayed here as an overnight location so that we could visit Litchfield NP again on the following day, in all honesty we should have stayed in Batchelor as it is considerably closer to the NP.

    Though the room is not very big, but it is clean and comfortable. Sunset view at the lake side is wonderful though at this season the weather is a bit hot. It is a nice quite place to escape from city.

    Next to a lake

    The resort is all by itself, with the nearest town located about 20-30 mins away (by car). If I knew the resort is so inconveniently located, I would hv drove all the way to Darwin for the night. The TV signals were poor in the room, you can get no signals at all from 1 to 30 mins. I couldn't received my Telstra 3G signals at all too. & there's no activities at the resort after nightfall. The towels & pillows smell stale... yucks!

    Needs refurb, slow service, overpriced meals”

    Owner was lovely... however..... Rooms were not clean- blankets had been thrown into the cupboard. Towels and 1 room smelt like urine. Stains on the mattress base. The meal service was slow and overpriced. There are no prices on the meal menus so got stung when paying the bill at checkout. Tables that we sat at the night before weren't re- made the next day- we had to ask for cutlery. Someone only came out to the dining area every 20 minutes or so, so had to wait to ask questions or order. Even had to stand at the door to the kitchen to request service. The place has so much potential- but won't be staying again.

    Asked to upgrade to the lake view room by giving us the original booked room without cleaning up from the previous stay from others. Okay to upgrade (additional $50) but the water from the spa or the tap water from toilet is in yellow color (think the water get from the lake) make us worrying to shower or brush teeth. Too many flies at night. Tv remote control is not functioning. 7km from main road (far)
