We stayed here in our camper van in September 2012 & returned this year (2013). Again we thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of being within walking distance to town & the skyline gondala. The facilities are very clean & tidy. There's even heaters in the showers/toilets! Staff are very friendly & welcoming.
What we are extremely disappointed about this time is that on our last night of our 4 night stay, there was a loud party with young teenagers staying in some chalets adjacent to the toilets & showers. We ended up calling the emergency number after midnight and spoke with the park manager to see if they could assist us. The manager advised that although the chalets are on the parks land and included on the parks site map, they did not actually own them and had no jurisdiction over them. There was nothing management could do and they advised we'd have to call the Police for assistance.
We called the Police and are not sure if they attended or not. By approx. 3am the noise had ceased and we were able to get at least a few hours sleep. It cost us $32 AUD to make that phone call to Police using our mobile and it took some time for us to explain to the Police that this matter could not be resolved by the park manager even though it was on park land. We also had difficulty explaining to the Police on how to get to the correct location.
Maybe the park management could assist guests in the future by offering to report this type of matter to the Police on behalf of the guests. Being from Australia we were not familiar with roads to assist Police for their attendance and we also incurred a large phone charge having to use our mobile phone.
All in all this is a great place to stay, just be aware of those chalets which are not managed by the holiday park as they cannot control who stays there.
