I am not really sure how to explain what I encountered while staying at the shady willows park at batemans bay a few week ago.
It was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed at, and I have been around the country and stayed at approximately 100 holiday parks with my family over the last 10 years.
My wife and I and our 3 children were placed in a cabin which appeared to be reasonable, but we were soon shocked and horrified to notice that there were spiders and cockroaches running rampant around the floor and in all the cupboards, and there were thousands of ants crwling along all the corners or the walls and behind all the curtains.
The toilet looked like it had not been cleaned for a very long time and there were usrine stains around the base of the toilet and on the seat.
The shower was even worse and much to dirty to have been cleaned in some time, as there was black thick mould in all the bottom corners of the cubicle and the shower curtain was just as bad.
The was also a very srtong smell of grease as the stove / griller was also very dirty and had not been cleaned properly.
The coffee cups were very stained and dirty and there were cockroackes crawling in and around the plates as well.
The Beds were very uncomfortable and smelt like urine and the sheets also smelt very bad, plus there were stains and it appeared that they were not cleaned after the last occupants had used the room.
The manager of the park was very obnoxious and appeared to be intoxicated and I saw his wander around the park afew times during the weekend carrying a beer bottle.
When I spoke to him he was slurring badly and made me feel very uncomfortable in asking him if it would be possible to give us another cabin as the cabin that I was staying in was just not suitable and very dirty.
I will never stay here again and would not recommend this park to my worst enemy.
