We stayed here for three nights. Bungalow was clean and big. Service at front desk was very good. Location is central. As there are camping possibilities nd cabins all sizes, it is a good place for families. So during the day it might be a bit noisy.

We stayed at Amaroo Park for a function close by. We booked using bookings.com and I thought that the service by them could be improved if you have to make an alteration to your booking. Our stay at this premises could not have been any better, from the people in the front office through to how clean the units are.... More

Great stay here. Only one negative and that would be small shower with inconsistent water temperature - dangerous for small children. Otherwise everything was perfect. Did not use pool but looked inviting. I think onsite restaurant is permanently closed. Very close to foreshore, Main Street and Coles.

Perfect location in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, Amaroo Park is the place to stay. Situated where you do not need a car once there, we traveled to the Is by V-Line & could make the use of the free community bus to all tourist destinations. Owners Lisa & Darrell can't seem to do more to... More

Very impressed with this room and shared bathroom, there was three bathrooms in the guest house between about 6 rooms so never had a problem even though It was fully booked that night. Enjoyable experience checking in and if going to the penguins it would be safer to prebook, we didn't and panicked a little when we realised how busy... More

The shared house rooms have only opened up in November 2015, but our response so far has been very pleasing. Although not for everyone, most guests really love the atmosphere of the 1920'2 homestead, and you are one of those guests. Most pleasing and thank you so much for the review. All the best Lisa More

Really enjoyed our stay at Amaroo and will definitely return. Close to cowes main street and beach with coles a 50metre walk away. Only downside was the pool was closed for one whole day which upset the kids.

We are very sorry the pool was closed when you stayed with us. Our pool has closed twice over the busiest season, and we tried to do it on overcast cold days. Unfortunately with so many guests in the pool, this is unavoidable for safety and health reasons. We never will risk the health of any of our guests, especially... More

We've stayed here in a cabin a few times and the service, peacefulness and ambiance never fail to impress us. It's our home away from home. There's something for everyone with amenities such as a pool, games room and modern bar-b-q facilities. The new managers, Wendy and Dave, are delightful and so welcoming and helpful. And best of all it's... More

I staid there for one night in a Queen Room Ensuite with shared bathroom. Room and common spaces where spacious. Room, toilets and common spaces where very clean. Wi-Fi worked well. Parking was available. Place was near city center, at walking distance. Staff was very helpful, and provided timely and useful practical informations.
