“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We recently had a brief holiday in Victoria and on the way home stayed at Moama on Murray at the the advice of friends. We loved it so much we stayed two extra days. It was freezing cold, but they had turned the heaters on and we arrived to a lovely warm and unit facing the river. The kids had an absolute ball. They had tractor rides around the resort, and our oldest was able to help feed the farm animals in the morning. The weather was terrible for the entire time we were there but they have a huge indoor play centre where we spent a great deal of time. We loved Echuca. It is a quaint Victorian town full of history. They have a water park and jumping pillow but it was too cold to try!
We will most certainly come back to this fantastic resort, hopefully when the weather is better. The staff were very friendly and most helpful but the beautiful bush and parklands around the resort were absolutely magnificent.
We will most certainly be back...it is rare to see places so well set up for families, We highly recommend this place...one of the best places we have ever stayed!

Room Tip: if you have small children, choose a villa with a gate on the front verandah so they cannot wander o...

we had a great long weekend , very relaxing comfortable stay in front of log fire looking out over the beautiful scenery , we also enjoyed a short trip on one of the resorts houseboat which would be a great holiday next time we visit , would thoroughly recommend .

Room Tip: in winter ask for the rooms with the log fire

Really amazed by the quality of the rooms, with a full kitchen (with new cutlery and enough utensils to cook with), a really spacious bathroom with luxurious full bath, lovely "wood" gas heater as well as air conditioning and comfy lounges. The location was beautiful - we scored the units down the end next to the bushland and away from the tennis courts and central pond so extra quiet. Fantastic to have mini golf, tennis and bocce all available for guests with a refundable deposit, and though the kids this time were too young to appreciate the kids club the number of smiling faces and relaed parents we saw proves it will be a big blessing as they grow up. Definately recommended for families - very reasonable price, lots to do, and the spacious units mean mum and dad can relax with a game while the kids play.

Room Tip: For those without school-age kids the units on the edge of the property closer to the river are quie...

When driving back from the snow our family decided to overnight in Echuca. I looked on trip advisor for advise on the best place to take the kids.....this place was well reviewed and seemed to tick all the boxes, we were excited...
Admittedly ours was a last minute booking and the resort was heavily booked so perhaps we got the 'bad villa' but seriously for $180 a night I was shocked when I walked into accommodation that resembled a caravan park cabin. The villa was so 'cold and sparse' empty walls (all artwork had seemed to be removed leaving only bare hooks), cheap flooring without a rug, minimal lighting and a very basic cabin style bathroom. Worst of all was the small heater to heat the entire 3 bedroom villa on a freezing winters night.
I tried to put the room behind me and enjoy the facilities, but once again we were left disappointed.The kids club had a private party going and cost extra, which wasn't worth spending by late afternoon, the spa looked promising but it wasn't heated and the animal feeding was only on at 830 in the morning. My kids stood looking at the kids club they had been promised longingly!!
I don't want to be too harsh, I could see kids cycling around having fun so perhaps with more time you'd get better use of the facilities. Having said that for the price tag I'd rather go elsewhere!
For us we were packed and gone by 8am...we needed to warm up after a freezing night!

Dear Sandra,

As a follow up to our previous correspondence regarding your review.

Thank you for your feedback and constructive comments, they are extremely valuable to us.
Each of our villas have a reverse cycle unit that is designed to adequately heat a unit of this size. As an additional service we provide a 24 hour phone call service to management that enables us to rectify any issue immediately.

Our maintenance team have looked into the Villas heater and could not find fault with its operation, so I apologise for the inconvenience you experienced with it.

Squiggles did have a party on Saturday afternoon but was not closed. Parties in Squiggles enjoy a reserved table or party barn only. Our winter check out time is 12 midday so it was unfortunate you did not have more time to enjoy Squiggles, animal feeding or our famous complimentary pancake breakfast on Sunday morning.

We were disappointed to read that your overnight stay with us did not meet your expectations. We hope you will provide us with an opportunity to welcome you back in the future.

Warm Regards

Stewart Courtney

Beautiful but the extra dollars for the other resort facilities are a bit rich considering how much you pay for the accommodation

We stopped off at Moama on the Murray for three nights travelling back from the Victoria snowfields back to Adelaide. My four daughters were thrilled with the fantastic family holiday we had here with great facilities, kids activities and great relaxing for my husband and I. The kids loved the animal feeding, playgrounds, bike riding, kids playhouse and even paddled around in the pool and water parks. The school holiday activities were brilliant especially the night disco in the playhouse. Everything we needed was included in the 3 bedroom accomodation with lots of space for 6 of us and it was clean and modern. We loved the setting on the murray set amounst the trees and river. One of the best holidays we have ever enjoyed we certainly will be coming back for a week of relaxing in the near future. Thankyou
