We recently stayed in a cabin at Eungella Chalet. The location could not be faulted, being at the top of the range road. The chalet bar had fabulous views over the Pioneer Valley, and the hang glider launching pad. There were National Park walks beginning right next door. It was also central for a driving tour of the Eungella district.
The Cabins were comfortable enough, but things had been allowed to run down. As an example, there was an electric frypan - but the cord was in an extremely poor condition and I would not have felt comfortable using it. There was a radio alarm clock, but since the switch was broken it was unusable. The cabin was generally clean, although the outdoor furniture had not been wiped down in quite a while; however, the bed was comfortable and clean, and that is the main issue in rented accommodation.
The accommodation was expensive for its type, and perhaps we expected more for this reason.
We were definitely paying for location. There is limited accommodation at Eungella, and the law of supply and demand applies.
