We stayed in their Backpacker Lodge which was spacious and very clean! Nice warm showers and a large kitchen with plenty of fridge storage! There is a large communal lounge area which was great for catching up and sharing travel stories with other guests! The bedroom was small but clean and did not have heating which made for a cold...

This was not a great stay for us. We found the playground needs repair and the cabins are clean but they need to have a renovation. The heating is not suitable for the winter conditions. We expected a little more considering it was a big 4 park. It is in a beautiful location. For the price we paid I expected... More

Unfortunately we only had one night but this was the cheapest place we could find for Freycinet other than camping. The cabins were very comfortable and walking distance to some shops and restaurants. Stay was actually March 2014, I forgot to post here although I posted on my blog.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you found Iluka to be what you wanted in more than one area, and the fact we are nestled right under the Hazard mountain range makes it easy to enjoy the 'stunning scenery'. More

We stayed one night in Coles Bay and were happy with BIG4. The facilities were clean, staff relatively friendly and helpful and the park is close to everything you'd need.

Thanking you for taking time to submit feedback. Concerning your linen supply, if we had knowledge of your booking being for three singles of course the right amount of linen would have been supplied. Otherwise, it is assumed it is a double plus one single, particularly if it was an online booking with no added notes to alert the housekeepers.Apologies... More
