As often is the case, reality falls short of photos on the internet. The cottages are beginning to show their age and the decor is now quite dated. However, given the high cost of accomodation in the Hunter Valley these cottages probably represent reasonable value. The following should be noted: the cottages have only one three seater lounge (ours was lumpy) in the living area, cooking facilities are very basic, this includes a small benchtop oven with two hot plates on top.There is no ironing board or iron, the bathroom is very small and easily floods from the shallow shower recess. Two tv's are advertised, however the tv in the main bedroom is an old small anlogue tv with rabbit ears perched on an odd looking wooden pedestal. The small digital tv for the living area is located high on a wall closer to the ktichen area and cannot be swivelled around to face the lounge.The tiled floor area in our cottage was grotty and there were piles of dead ants in places including around the microwave oven on the bench top area. The exterior walls of the cabins are made from some type of flexible board rendered to resemble concrete or stone. However, the boards are thin and allow the cabin to heat up quickly, our cabin became uncomfortably warm on a 25 degree day. There is air conditioning in the living area, but the cooling effect does not extend to the bedrooms. We did enjoy our stay in the holiday park, the swimming pool is great and the large bouncing air cushion was a lot of fun, but the accommodation fell short of expectations.
