I booked here before reading the reviews, so was a bit nervous as we headed off. It definitely needs work and it seems that has started and as reception is your first impression that needs to revamp that asap. However our room was a great size, plenty of space in the bathroom, not like some places where you are literally... More

We were looking for a place to stay one night while staying in Phillip island we weren't too fussed on anything fancy but was extremely shocked to see the poor standard of this "resort" The spare blankets were shoved in the cupboard not even folded & rubbish under the bed. There were renovations happening at the time and they had... More

do yourself a favour and keep away.. they should not be allowed to run this place, its unhygienic and dangerous to children. Total pit of a place and depressing. The pictures must be from previous owners as its nothing like that now.. nothing at all.

6 friends and I went down to this resort for a New Years get away. On arrival of the place we walked into the front office to the worst smell I have ever experienced. And to also see 4-5 screens filled with video footage for everyone to see. We then spoke to the lady at the front desk who was... More

Was looking for low budget accomodation and found Koala Park Resort. The price was right. The attmosphere was great and very family friendly. Rooms are a bit out dated but very clean with everything you need like toaster, kettle, microwave and fridge. Plus the big outdoor BBQ area! Kids could play tennis, meet the animals etc. The new owners are... More

Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The bush setting in the area is beautiful. The welcoming and lovely new owners are still getting their heads around the place and in conversation mentioned the many plans they have for the place. We received new crockery and cutlery during our stay. The brewery next door also offers delicious food, friendly service... More

The rooms had what we needed but were very basic. We checked in and the beds weren't made up. They were going to be done while we went out but when we come back one of the four was still not made properly. They hadn't supplied the tea and coffee, so we had to chase that to. The staff were... More
