Wonderful heating, electric blankets, comfortable bed and great tea/coffee faciities, fridge and TV with DVD. And free wireless internet. I was welcomed like an old friend and urged to let... More

This is our 2nd stay. This was just as enjoyable as the first. Our little dog loves this place. Cabins are fantastic and your close to everything. Leave your car at the Park. The pool is delightful and a great spot to sit and relax.

It's not often I write a review but I thought this time I would. My family and I enjoyed a short stay at Amaroo Park during our tour of Victoria and it's one of the few places we would have liked to have stayed longer.

Thank you for reviewing us. It all helps to make Amaroo Park improve. We are glad you found the room clean, and sad that you had a car parking issue. Generally this is not a problem, as all car parks are numbered and 99% of guests park correctly. Very occasionally things don't always go smoothly. kindest regards Lisa More

We were excited about this place and thought it was well put together until we tried to do laundry. Washer didn't spin them out the gteatest and I'm pretty sure the driers are rigged to output low heat even on high heat setting.

Spent 1 night here..thought it was clean close to everything and really can't fault it. Recommended for anyone who chooses to stay in Cowes. Penguin parade a must and a visit to the Koala conservation park recommended. We would stay again at Amaroo park .
