“Loved the pancakes...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2008

My partner and I recently stayed at BIG4 Port Fairy. The staff here were brilliant from the moment we checked in. We stayed in a cabin which was really cosy - ideal for the 2 of us. The cabin was clean, tidy and had everything we needed and more. It was so peaceful I even got to sleep in and my partner managed to get a few pancakes for brekky off John - GREAT IDEA BIG4! The park was great as it was walking distance to everything including all the fantastic pubs. Jenni from BIG4 recommended a fantastic seafood restaurant called 'Wisharts on the Wharf'. The atmosphere here was amazing and the food was sensational. We had a table by the window so we were able to watch crayfish being unloaded from a trawler which had been out at sea for 5 days - WOW! With so many delicious cafes, boutique shops, walks and stunning beaches to explore we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will certainly be back and next time will bring the whole family.

  • Liked — The service from all staff
  • Disliked — Missed having my dog with us - although it wasa nice break from her.
  • Stayed June 2008, traveled as a couple

What a Holiday Park!!!
Great staff, great facilities and, best of all, I hardly saw the kids all weekend as there were so many ways for them to amuse themselves.
Next time I need a true holiday I know where I'll be taking the family!

  • Liked — Great facilities, accomodation range and cleanliness.
  • Disliked — I had to return to reality!

We have just returned from a weekend at the BIG4 holiday/caravan park in Port Fairy with our 4 children (5, 10, 12 & 14yrs). As a full time working mum, it was a great place for us to relax while the kids were kept busy. Booking was simple with the staff suggesting the type of cabin (too busy to research different cabin types) most suitable and the accommodation was great - clean, modern and well equipped - there was even a bowl of lollies for the kids when we checked-in and it was warm (heater had been turned on for us). As soon as we arrived the kids were gone - they have a huge jumping pillow/dome, playground and games room. There was also mini golf and we all played as a family (fee, but reduced as we were staying in the park) and I sat and watched them all play in the indoor heated pool - noodles and huge floating mat were provided free for our use. And best of all was a FREE pancake breakfast on Sunday morning - I actually had a sleep in and read my book while the kids went over and were fed. We went for walks along the beach and a river/bay cruise but we could have easily spent the whole time in the park. The only thing we had to leave the dog behind as there were no pets, but she had a holiday at Nan's house. The kids are already asking when we can go back. This BIG4 park is definitely a winner and if we can convince the kids we may try another BIG4.

  • Liked — It was large enough for our family without having to have 2 motel rooms
  • Disliked — leaving
