We stayed three nights during a heatwave. Thank goodness the cabin we were in had a decent airconditioner! When we arrived the temperature was above 40 degrees celcius (not unusual for Dubbo in January) and while it did take a while for the airconditioner to cool the cabin down, it did work and we sat in front of it for several hours while we cooled down a little.
The 7-berth Mitchell Suite cabin was well appointed and spacious enough for the two adults and two kids to spread out. My kids loved the dual bunk beds - it meant they both got to sleep in the top bunk. Bed linen was appropriate and it's great to see all beds made up - many cabin parks either require you to bring linen for the kids or make the beds up yourself.
The mattresses on the master bed and the double bed underneath one of the bunk beds were, however, a bit thin and not very supportive. I woke up in pain/with pins and needles each morning having tried both double beds.
The cabin was well appointed with crockery and cutlery and the oven/fridge were great. We had breakfast in the cabin each day and had everything we needed. There is a large supermarket/liquor store nearby so you can stock up on supplies very easily.
The park has a small kiosk from where you can also get coffees/ice creams and bread/milk.
The pool is small but adequate. It was a godsend for our kids during such incredibly hot weather.
The checkin/checkout process was very smooth.
The park is only 5 minutes' drive from the Western Plains Zoo (awesome!) and about 10 minutes to the centre of town.
I would definitely recommend this cabin park for families.
