“Great Value Holiday Park”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

We were traveling in a "RV" looking for a holiday Park that could house our RV and still convenient to Hobart though the Park is mainly a park full of cabins the limited powered sites were fantastic... The added touch of en suites were a bonus not to mention the pub near the entrance we had a excellent stay

We stayed over the Christmas period and booked a powered site for my husband and I, and a cabin for my mum who was visiting. Mum liked her cabin, it had everything she needed in it. It was clean and comfortable, and had plenty of room for her. The caravan sites, however, are less impressive. There are only 6 sites available for caravans, all with en-suites (whether you want one or not), and the sites are right up on the top of a hill where you are precariously perched. I must admit, having our own en-suite bathroom was lovely, but of course you pay extra for it. It felt like we, the caravaners, were stuck up the back and out of everyone's sight. I would recommend this park for travellers wanting cabins, but would not recommend it for travellers wanting powered sites.

Room Tip: Give it a miss if you're in a caravan

We stayed here for one night during the Sydney-Hobart, Taste time of the year. The cabin was clean, cosy and provided everything we needed. We thought the half wall / half curtain for the 'master' bed was a little un-private though and turning the heater on involved a lot of trial and error and eventually following the lead through a wall to the side of the bed. Some instructions on the would have saved a bit of frustration! It is an easy run from here to anywhere in Hobart (we went to MONA, Mt Wellington and the Taste) with no problems at all. Well suited to a family doing the ''rounds''.

An adequate holiday park for our purpose. 6-bed cabin is suitable with all essentials required for a stay. Traffic noise more noticeable on a work day than over a weekend. With a vehicle most things are within easy reach. Without you're better to stay central.

The park is ideally located 15 mins away from airport and the city of Hobart. With a hire car, one can stay close to the city yet on contact with nature & wildlife. Will stay here in future trips too. The unit was clean and tidy.

Despite booking early in the year, we ended up here as all Hobart accommodation was taken for the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and 'Taste'. Location is good - on the north side with easy access to the city, Richmond and Port Arthur. Cabins are very basic but clean. We were a family group and had one of the "superior" "cottages" with a deck overlooking a modern day prison (quite ironic given Tasmania's history). If I was to stay here again (unlikely) I would request one of the cabins where the deck was covered - would mean you could still use it when it was raining. There is not a lot of room in the cabins so you need the deck for some extra space. There is a full size fridge and a dishwasher.

It is located on a main highway and you do hear the traffic noise. Management has an adversarial approach - there was an error with our booking (something the staff had not picked up) and we were made to feel that it was our fault.

Room Tip: Ask for a covered deck (not all decks are roofed)

this was our first place we stayed in Hobart and i cant say i was too impressed, very dated and too far out of the way. it was fairly noisy as well. some of the attractions to the park were broken or removed.
