Why such a place as this is called a resort? Ideal location. Reception top level bar/ restaurant great then it went downhill. 1. First look the rooms seemed ok until a closer inspection you'll find dust gathered in the corners. 2. Mosquitoes! 1000's too late get some from reception (closed) solution - turn fan on medium and they won't come... More

We had a motel room - it was quite basic and servicing was a bit erratic. We managed to get one towel for two people but scored two teaspoons, while a colleague staying by themselves in another double room manged to get two towels and no spoons. It is that sort of place. It is only a short walk from... More

We were disappointed to see that there was rubbish lying about on our walks and that the only laundry was right up the end of the "no dog zone". As we have a 14yo mini foxie we were placed in the "dog zone" which we actually thought was a nicer area than the "dog free zone" but the walk with... More

We stayed for a night on a powered van site. Reception was good and helpful. We were told that we could choose any site, all van sites are well lined with trees and of a good size, most sites are on a slope and you will need to lift front of van up fairly heigh. The amenities are very old... More

Stayed in a cabin, double and bunks for the kids, super basic cabin, very old, beds not that comfortable. Short walk down to the beautiful Mataranka springs, although we prefer Bitter Springs as its less busy and a prettier setting. Average meal at the restaurant/bar but good atmosphere with the band.

Great location (in the dry season). Rooms are old and very basic with door lock that can be opened with a business card. Not really suited for a romantic getaway but for anyone seeking basic accommodation with the benefit of free thermal springs; a great place. Very friendly bar, Restaurant and reception staff. I note some people on tripadvisor are... More

Mature aged couple with 20 ft caravan who stayed a week. Friendly and helpful reception who provided map and offered us the choice of sites. Large sites readily available, albeit all dirt ..shade varies from site to site. Ablutions tired but clean and reasonable. Proximity to warm springs, hotel meals/drinks and free nightly entertainment all value add to cheap prices.... More

The cabins at Mataranka Homestead are very old and basic. You could smell the chlorine when you walked in so the assumption is that it was clean. It was somewhere to put our heads down after a day of driving so it did the job. Probably wouldn't stay there again. Having said that, good atmosphere at the restaurant/bar. Good Aussie... More

Just pray there is no fire if you stay there as the fire hose reel lies broken on the ground and the perishing hose is in a tangle underneath!!!! I was also dismayed to see the first floor shower leaks over the entrance to the Back Packer rooms. This is a serious health violation and guaranteed way to spread disease.... More

We stayed in a cabin this July 2014. On arrival we found the door open, when entering the cabin we were quite shocked, as it was old and quite dirty, cobwebs hanging from ceiling and a mass behind the TV. We has to wash the utensils and crockery, the bathroom was a real mess, rotted area between floor and walls,... More
