This place is disgusting. We stayed in the Backpackers Croft.
The kitchen has not been cleaned for months. Spider webs, dead insects, dead mice still in mouse traps, dirty plates, holes in concrete floors. Toilets uncleaned, showers dirty. The back yard looks as if it is a dumping ground for the lodges junk.
You share accomodation with the resort staff who treat the place as if their mother will one day come and clean up behind them.
Dirty plates, leftover food that is days old left on the benches, the fridge is a laboratory experiment gone seriously wrong.
Wash up detergent (yes there was some ) in sports drink bottles which is not good for kids when they drink it !
When we complained about the mess the attitude of the staff was to give us a couple of cleaning cloths and sort it out ourselfs.
This place reeks of bad management at the top and staff who dont give a toss for the guests who come to stay.
If you stay here you are truly stupid !!!

It looks out over the calm, clear water of the bay, embraced by virgin native forest, unchanged since Captain Cooks first visit in the inlet in 1769. Here at the lodge, the pace is easy, comfortable and relaxed. Ideal for the complete retreat. ... more less
