Compared to the Curry Village tents (where we stayed the night prior to staying here) these tent cabins are much better. Ours was clean and the bed was comfortable, the biggest improvement was having a power point in the tent. The room came with a fan in, but we went to reception and asked for an electric heater instead, which they happily provided. The mountain resort was good, the lounge/ bar/ cafe was very nice and there was live music when we were there on a Friday night. We ate dinner onsite and it was excellent home-style cooking.
Unfortunately, the shower and toilet facilities were quite terrible. We camp a lot and they are some of the worst that we have encountered on a paid site. They weren't at all clean and it was a long walk to the shower block from the tent.
I would give the tent, the resort in general and the food in the cafe all 5/5 but the shower facilities 1/5. If you can make do without a shower for one night and just use the bathroom in the cafe then, especially for the price, I don't think that you can beat it.
