We stayed here for two nights with my husbands parents. We booked over the Internet so paid for one nights accommodation up front. My husband was telephoned twice by a girl with an British accent chasing the other nights fee before we even arrived...talk about desperate! I have never had to pay up front in Australia before, I travel a lot for work so I have a lot of experience staying in motels.
The office is only open from 10am till 5pm and not at all on Sundays. I must mention here that the Australian girl we dealt with on Saturday morning was pleasant.
The cabin was large and had obviously just been painted as it was very unpleasant in there with the doors and windows shut. Mum is very sensitive to airborne irritants so she spent both nights coughing.
There isn't much furniture in the cabin so was the rooms were very echoing. All the beds were hard and uncomfortable and need replacing.
Unlike some reviewers we were not offered a breakfast basket.
The cabins are not what you would expect in a 'resort' but more what you'd expect in a caravan park. The only plus is the closeness to a beach which is a five minute walk away.
