Upon a friendly arrival, we were shown to our 'Matilda' Cabin. All seemed satisfactory as we entered. Unfortunately, it was one of THOSE days where anything and everything went wrong. The staff tried their best to fix the problems but we were very disappointed how our 4 day holiday had started. Our first night was not the best. Next day... More

Dear Karen Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. It is very much appreciated. My goodness, yes, it certainly was ONE of those days. It’s amazing isn’t it how we can sail along and all is perfect and then one thing after another needs attention. While, as you said, we were able to address the problems immediately,... More

We stayed in the Matilda Cabin recently, the Cabin was nice & clean, everything worked perfectly. Due to the sudden cold snap, we more or less had the heater on all day every day & well into the evening - it did not miss a beat! Electric blankets worked wonders at night, keeping us toasty warm. The pool, well the... More

Dear JimandMariaMelbourne Thank you for your glowing review. We really appreciate it. It really has been the coldest week or so that we have experienced according to the bureau. I’m pleased your heating didn’t succumb to the dreaded intense cold and freeze the exterior of the unit. How good is our pool? It is actually open every day of the... More

Dear cheezels1985 Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that your first night of your 4 night stay did not meet your expectations – it was one of the coldest evenings since Ballarat has been recording temperatures, which certainly wouldn’t have helped. While I appreciate there were a couple of minor issues to begin with (which were all attended... More

Just returned from a weekend getaway staying in a Banksia Unit for two nights. Coming from the Hospitality industry it is easy to be critical and your expectation is always high. From the moment we stepped into reception it was very clear we had made a very wise decision. Arriving early we were greeted with an extremely pleasant and informative... More

My mum, my children and i went to big 4 Windmill Holiday Park 30/6-2/7/15 and we stayed in the Blue Gum A Cabin. It was huge and clean and had everything you could ever need. Its a great park for kids with the jumping pillow, new indoor pool, 2 spas, the indoor playground with a sandpit and a playground. They... More

Dear vascorossi123 Thank you for your wonderful review. It is very much appreciated. Our Blue Gums (2) are our gorgeous deluxe cabins and loved by all who stay in them. Yet another lovely comment about our fantastic indoor heated pool/spa complex. It allows our guests to swim all year around. Our kids club and free movie and popcorn night is... More

We had a wonderful stay. Close enough to all the attractions but out of town for quiet rest. The kids loved all of the facilities, especially the games room, jumping pillow and, of course, the indoor pool. Lovely staff topped off a great holiday.

Dear Casojaha Thank you for your positive review. We really appreciate it. Being only 7kms from the CBD means our guests can enjoy our park without being in the midst of the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to pop out and do some shopping along our main strip. I’m pleased your kids loved our facilities. We pride ourselves on... More

We chose the Windmill Holiday park because we wanted to stay out of the hustle and bustle of all that goes on in Ballarat. It has a lot to offer with an indoor pool and kids play area. The staff was very pleasant and easy to chat with. The ensuite was very clean minus the amount of spiders, but that... More

Dear HauntingBijou Thank you for your lovely review. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly park with the kids play area and indoor heated pool in constant use. We are so lucky to enjoy the almost new shopping centre over the road. So convenient for our guests to just pop over and pick up all they need. Yes, the... More

Dear Glenn C We appreciate you taking the time to post your lovely review. Thank you. Our lovely housekeepers make sure to pop the heaters on for our guests prior to arrival because, let’s be honest, Ballarat in winter is quite cold.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The park exceeded our expectations. The ladies amenities were lovely and warm and freshly renovated. We had our own caravan and booked a powered site. There was lots to do for families. Heated pool, games room, coonara, BBQ area and a playground. It was a great location and we did lots of sight... More
