Wanted to stay on a powered site. After filling up the tank and paying for the site, I tried to find the site after a very vague description from the front desk ('past the pool - you cant miss it'). Drove past the pool and found an area with power and water hookups, assuming this would be the site. Even... More

Thank you for your feedback on your very short stay with us. I do however feel the need to refresh your memory of the actual events that took place. Upon checking in, you were made aware of the upgrade taking place in our camping grounds and were offered a discounted rate as a result. You were advised that only a... More

Day 5 of travelling for us and all we wanted was a place to rest. We were pleasantly surprised with the venue. There was a sign saying their prices would be expensive we found them to be on psr with any other place we had stayed. The room was clean and tidy and thank goodness the bathroom was quite modern....

Stayed one night in a twin motel room and it was great. Very clean, comfortable beds and a great shower. Parking was excellent and the aircon was the best. We had the best sleep. We certainly got our money's worth. The staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. Had a meal at the restaurant and was basic... More

Located in an ideal place for an overnight stay. Though there is not much to do around, it is an oasis of rest on the long stretch of road. A clean friendly place offers excellent breakfast and other meals. Happen to run into Tom Mayne, who told me it is a family-run place and provided very helpful travel advice.

Camped twice on unpowered sites and felt we hardly got a thing for our money. The bbq was absolutely disgusting hadn't being cleaned in living memory. The ladies showers weren't too bad but the men's were terrible, showers were dark, dingy and dirty, not a mirror anywhere on the wall. I feel that because they are in a convient spot... More

We camp here for one night. The grass was very green and comfortable to camp on. We had access to clean and very modern amenities. There is also an outside pool. All staff were very welcoming and nice. They have BBQ facilities available.

We have stayed here twice now and have enjoyed our stay both times. The meals from the restaurant are lovely and reasonably priced. The cabin we stayed in this time was well presented, clean and spacious. Our only minor negative regarding the cabin would be the aircon attached to the wall vibrating and cutting in and out all night keeping... More

Best place for a weary traveller to rest their heads clean and comfy accommodation and friendly service, great dinners good prices and the pool was a welcome relief from the humidity, only scary thing was the fuel prices at 1.99 per litre I'd suggest filling up before and after but definately a great place to stopover , loved it

Pleasantly surprised :-) Clean room, lovely surrounding gardens, bar, beer garden bistro all beautifuly set up friendly helpful staff. Dinner was ok.

I wish we had stayed here instead of three ways. Barkly sis so incredibly clean. Food was hot and fresh. And the cabins looked newer and shaded by lovely trees surounded by lush grass. If you have the choice stay here instead of three ways
