Absolutely beautiful location
Lake Crackenback Resort is amazingly beautiful. I love this place. Each time I’ve stayed the accomodation has been modern, clean, comfortable, and well equipped. All rooms have great views. Nature is at your doorstep. It’s pricey but worth it!

Despite the wet weather, we had a great time at the resort. Lots of walks and animals to see. Breakfast included was ok. No housekeeping during the stay which was odd.

Disliked: Amenities
Beautiful location; chalet itself nice but no wifi; no clothes hangers; no batteries in aircon remotes; tennis courts in dangerous disrepair- ran into falling, rusted metal surrounding/enclosure; clearly no maintenance in a very long time; breakfast was always cold (ie the ‘hot’ food; shrivelled mushrooms; cold ‘toast’; cold roasted tomatoes; dinner really average despite cost; oysters not fresh - stuck to shell.). If l were an owner, I’d be worried about the quality of services offered by resort. I wouldn’t return.
