“Holiday stay”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We had a short 3 night stay in our caravan and we will certainly go back. We have also told our caravan friends about the park. Praise to your reception staff who were well presented and very informative but most of all could actually carry on a conversation with us and made us feel extremely welcome. The grounds were immaculate toilets maybe dated who cares as long as they are clean which they were. Our van site was well marked where at most parks you just have to guess your site boundaries. Rubbish bins on each site, excellent. Very quiet and minutes to town.

We stayed Frid/Saturday night in 1 room cabin thought the price a bit steep $160.00 Saturday night when its really is one room with bed, kitchenette and tiny bathroom but it was lovely and clean & the staff are very accommodating, the park is really quiet also which is needed when you have been partying and need a great sleep. The bed was comfy . Byron itself is quite expensive so you need to factor that in. Busy town with something happening at every pub , café or just in the street. Really enjoyed our time there.

Checking in, the customer service was good. We paid a ridiculous $700 for a weekend for a 2 bedroom cottage. The cottage smelled damp and mouldy like it hasn't been aired out for a while. Rooms had cockroaches and there was no spare toilet paper. Gas stove did not light without using my own matches. Will probably not stay there again.

Park looks clean and tidy from the outside. However the amenities are not acceptable. The men's have mould in shower with only two small basins to wash with for the whole park. It appears facilities have been removed with no replacement. If you try to shave at night the lack of light does not make it possible. There are bus loads of teenagers arriving every night. Therefore the amenities are a bigger disaster. Very disappointed. Staff were very helpful

Quiet location. 8 minutes walk to the city center...
So I would say it´s okay...
Got the first day of wireless for free. Friendly staff.
they have wireless... costs 5 AUD /100 MB...

All in All.. okay

The beds are kinda short. So if you are, like my friend, 6.7 ft, , you might have kind of a hard night...
I slept ok.

Room Tip: The cabins are affordable, spacious and clean. If you are up for a spa in your bathroom, this offer...

Excellent cabins with everything you need.
Comfy sleep.
Reception staff were very good. Sorted us with maps, hairdryer and surfing lessons!
During the day the walk to town was very easy. However at night it was pitch black and really scary. Not very safe for two girls!
