Stopover to FNQ with family. Picked a family self contained cabin. Large and comfy beds. Large tv for all to see. Bathroom was a good size with a quaint balcony. Good playground for the kids and pool inviting which we all used. Practical for family and would return again for overnighters.

Stayed overnight in Southside, was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the cabin and the shared bathrooms. Reception was very friendly and efficient. There is also a pool which we did not use but it looked clean. The town centre is a short drive. It's location is excellent if driving from the south as it is on the way into... More

I have been staying here in cabins for many years as a stopover on way to Nth Queensland and back to Brisbane. Motels proved too dear. So about $90 overnight for a couple. A few years back it got quite grotty. However in recent trips it has changed immensely. Good bed. Clean sheets. New fittings.even bottle of dishwashing liquid.

We were travelling during very wet weather and decided to get a cabin - this park is so clean. They must have OCD, there was not a garden or a cabin that looked out of place. The cabin was very clean, the shower was the old type that was super hot and lots of water! The bed was comfy and... More

We stopped over here as we travelled from Coffs Harbour to Airlie Beach. We arrived late due to many unforseen roadworks, so we had to pitch our tent in the dark. The camping ground was tiny, we had to try to be very quiet so as not to disturb other campers, but I'm sure we would have woken them up... More

Reception was friendly upon check-in and room was clean and affordable. Only toiletries supplied was one soap. Washing up liquid and tea towels as well as linen were supplied. The... More

Stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom cabin at the Southside Holiday Village for work in Rocky. Lovely little verandah made private with golden canes, a spacious lounge room, TV, AC, fans, dining table, leather lounges - really comfortable. The unit has a well appointed self contained kitchen and a lovely shower in the generous bathroom. All windows had security... More

Cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent good money on some nice steak and kebabs only to find the BBQs didn't have enough heat to cook them. Ended up taking the food back to our cabin and finished cooking as best we could using a single frying pan! Mentioned the problem when we checked out and all... More

My stay here was very disappointing. The bbq was very poor and not hot at all. The air conditioning in the room would not blow cold air and no matter what setting you put it on it just didnt satisfy. I strongly recommend you find somewhere else to stay.
