I travel full time for work and stay in all sorts of accommodation and this is one of my favourites. Great friendly service and close to everything. Great value for your money. With the YHA attached great Atmosphere with overseas travellers I'll be back.

Very old cabin, very small ensuite, huge wattle trees that are beautiful but make a huge mess outside the cabin door and all over the car, plus someone tried to break into my car during the night. Was there 3 nights too long.

The campsite is lovely and green with lots of trees and birds chirping away at you. Unfortunately thats where the positives stopped. The patch of ground we were given was actually a patch of dirt. The toilets were OK but the roof leaked when it rained. You have to pay for wifi but its a total rip off as it... More

Great spot close to centre of town. This is an older style park which is quite refreshing after the big, impersonal, glitzy ones. Camped with son & 2 small grandchildren. Staff & van owners were pleasant & friendly. Quiet enough for kids to practice bike riding. Wonderful trees, birds. Kids were thrilled to see a possum on a caravan in... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our park. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay. The possum has been around for a few years now and it is so nice to have all the birds visiting. It is such a shame that some dog owners dont clean up after their pets because it... More

Hi Daniel I thank you for your review even though it is negative. In fairness to your complaints I informed your partner on check in what the caravan entailed and that TV, fridge and cooking facilities were in the main hostel building. When the booking was for 2 people in a double I explained that I didnt think the caravan... More

I stayed here for one night on my way to Melbourne and i really enjoyed my stay. Mostly because of the people i met, but also because it was clean and big. I stayed in the girls room and there was just one other girl in there. And not a lot of other people in the whole hostel. I was... More

I stayed in a 4 bed share for two nights and the accomodations was ok. The YHA is integrated into a camping ground // caravan park with typical infrastructure and facilities. Showers were clean and the location of the YHA is ok. it takes you around 20 minutes to town (by foot). Of course there may be some better YHA... More

Please clean the toilet and shower blocks the inside of the showers are dirty and unclean with mould. It is a handy place to stay close to the shops however. I have read some of the reviews maybe I am using the wrong shower block.

Dear Graeme I find it hard to believe that you would come back to the park after your last review and I cannot verify your stay with us in December. Our toilets are cleaned every day and with regular checks done throughout the day so I really dont know why you say that they are always dirty. I think maybe... More
