Not what I booked

Pros: nothing
Cons: Too many to list. The roster that was outside the room and chook poo all over the outside furniture was appalling. Crowing at 4am was unacceptable.
Location: Should have stayed 30 km south at Adelaide River. Had a great pub with fantastic atmosphere.
Rang to let them know I was going to get there late (after 6pm). They didn't know I was coming. What I booked was a room with kitchenette and queen size bed. Got a small room with an air conditioner that only just kept us cool and a small double bed.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lake Bennett Resort Sincerely apologise re the cobwebs, they are hard to keep abreast of in the bush - the girls have been spoken to - we recommend no BYO to day visitors, guests can bring their own - but must be consumed in your room due to our Liquor Licencing Act

I am quite amazed at your comments - are you saying you were downgraded for the three nights - not sure what you mean no CHOICE of menu, you BBQd most of your stay - you were advised that a reservation was not being held for you - we had received a cancellation and had no notification of a second booking - no blame was put on anyone -
