Secrets on the Lake

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2017

Secret on the Lake is 5 star hotel in the middle of nature. All bits and pieces are prepared with love and care. We stayed in The Nest and it was perfect . The staff are so friendly , They put all options for breakfast in our Nest plus every morning they put fresh croissants in a little bag for us, ready to pick up. You may think it is a bit expensive but it is totally worth it. I totally recommend this beautiful place and looking forward to be back there . Thank you so much George and Aldy

Room Tip: The Nest is perfect for 6 people

Thanks Pegah. Our prices are carefully calculated against the costs of running a place with 25 staff and the maintenance of our beautiful grounds and treehouses, along with the cost of firewood and the building of really special treehouses that are unique and world class. I often say if I picked it all up and dropped Secrets in the Middle of New Zealand we could double our prices. I am very happy that you felt spoilt and will pass yo lovely comments onto our staff. Kind regards George and Aldy!

Absolutely stunning place! Staff were excellent setting the room for my proposal to my fiancé and with such little time. (she said yes). Very helpful staff showing us around the place and what's available nearby. Great place to get away from the rat race and relax. We stayed in "platypus" and will be back again. Very secluded and private with an amazing spa and view. The BBQ dinner is a must and you can hand feed the possums that come by on balcony.

8 of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Secrets, in the gazebo, with lovely views over the lake. The food was delicious, so very well priced, served by pleasant staff who were agreeable and friendly. The desserts were delicious and not to be missed. The location is perfect - quiet and peaceful, well, except when we were there! We would all recommend Secrets, certainly for lunch, but the breakfast menu looked most enticing.

Thanks you for rating us. We are delighted with your comments. You mention that you liked the look of our breakfast menu. It is particularly lovely to breakfast on our deck and with friends. Busy families often meet to celebrate birthdays over breakfast and we do have wedding guests meet the next day for a group breakfast. Breakfast on our deck on a crisp morning is very special. Thanks again George and Aldy!

Last week my husband and I celebrated our Silver Wedding with lunch at Secrets on the Lake. We had booked in advance, so had a table at the edge of the deck, overlooking Baroon Pocket Dam. It was a perfect place to celebrate with French sparkling wine to accompany our excellent meal. My husband chose the barramundi and I the wagyu burger, which was huge! We both enjoyed our meal choices.
The restaurant was full, with three large groups and many groups of two, three or four. Service was excellent, smiles abounding, courteous staff and - given that the place was full - very swift!
We lingered over our meal, enjoying the view of the lake, being in the open air in the middle of winter in Queensland with some sun filtering through the trees. Noisy Miners flitted in and out looking for scraps to eat. There was a huge hamper of plush blankets for those who felt chilly and the attached gallery had some lovely artwork to enjoy after we had finished our meal.
We will definitely return, hopefully soon, and will bring friends with us knowing they will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: There are fantastic rooms - look on the website. Living locally we just went for lunch

This was a weekend away for our 12th Wedding Anniversary. What a beautiful and secluded location. Rooms were awesome with fantastic views. Wood carved interior in the "Secrets" cabin is outstanding. Definitely worthwhile experience. Owners of Secrets and staff at the restaurant were fantastic. Overall great weekend in the Beautiful Montville.
