BIG4 Iluka on Freycinet
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

The bathroom is quite small! Lucky my wife & I are littler people as you wouldn't get to the toilet...
We had to tune the television in to pick up stations!
But overall it is basic and priced just right.

Stayed in one of the 2 bedroom self contained units for a long weekend. Exactly what we wanted & lovely atmosphere in the complex. Only reason I scored cleanliness down a bit was that the freezer was frosted over. Other than that it was very clean. No problems with noise from other campers/residents and all staff friendly.

We unfortunately had only 1 night to spend here, but really appreciated the facilities at Big4. A short walk to the F & C shop (grumpy lady), bakery and pub. Easy drive to the Visitors Centre at Freycinet. Very clean and very reasonably priced. No free wifi but otherwise spot on. Beautiful, peaceful spot with lovely views. Will be back!!

We (2 adults + 1 toddler) stayed one night here in one of their smaller cabins towards the back of the park. The cabin was clean, they provided a cot for our little one for no extra charge and the location meant that there was no noise at night. There was no door to close the main bedroom off from the rest of the cabin, however the 2nd bedroom had a door so it didn't bother us.

All in all, a great budget choice in Coles Bay where everything else is VERY expensive.

I stayed in a cabin towards the back of the complex. The cabin was very comfortable and clean, there was a clear TV in the bedroom and working kitchen. A nice little patio comes off the cabin which is a great place to unwind. It's right behind the tavern which serves really nice pub food (the ribs were excellent). The location is about as good as it gets without the million dollar views. I was very happy and comfortable staying here.

My wife and I stayed in one of the cabins for a couple of days. The cabins are pleasant, clean, quite basic but well worth it. Coles Bay caters mainly for tourists and most places are priced accordingly, $6.50 for a take way coffee, $10 for take away fish and chips (2 pieces of fish no bigger that the palm of your hand). No problems at all with the cabin. Would go back for sure

I know there are some negative reviews of this park but we found our stay fantasitc. The camp kitchens were good considering the numbers of people passing through the gates and we gfoudn the ammenities block very clean and well stocked. The sites were clean and we did not encounter any of the problems previously stated in the negative reviews. We had one of the average sized unpowered sites and easily fitted our 9 person tent, chairs and cooking facilities, as did our travelling companions wo added a gazebo on their site as well. Car parking was tight, but we had room for one car on site and on in the adjacent parking bay.
