“Ensuite motel”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Lovely to have a bit of luxury away from the campervan for a night. Very spacious accommodation, clean, modern and comfortable.
Only one small problem was getting the BBQ's to work - maybe it was us not being used to this type of unit.
Lovely location out of town.

We had a campervan site right by the riverside. It. Was peaceful, relaxing, spotlessly clean.

It was great being able to walk into town. This is a nice town to walk round. Old fashioned market selling homegrown/made wares. There is a lovely walk up the hill to Victoria Lake. From the site right round is about 20kms but easy walking

It was a little chilly in the morning but then beautiful warm sunshine.


Beautifully maintained site in great location

We stayed in a beautyful 2 bedroom cabin. Cooking equipment etc was fantastic. The kids loved the pool, jumping pillow, pet animals and ducks on site. The only problem was that the wifi signal was not very strong where we were, so skype was hard to use in the cabin. This could probably have been solved if we had taken our device closer to the transmitter. We would definately stay there again and reccommend to others.

Room Tip: Get the deluxe cabin.

It is a beautiful location, we had a site directly at the river. It was a little bit cold in the morning but nice view.
We heard nothing from the traffic although the street was close to the campground.
The facilities were clean . All in all a good place to stay.
We would stay again.

The place was lovely and tidy. A beautiful location right next to the river. A little noisy due to the road on opposite side of the river but all in all, a pleasant place to stay. I would stay here again.

We stayed in the family cabin overnight. A quick stay after a wedding. Great location overlooking the river. Simple accommodation but we chose the cheapest - they have a variety of options for all price ranges. Very quiet - we slept until almost 10 as there wasn't the usual early morning noise of the camping ground. The only thing was the light coming through the door. A simple curtain or blind would sort that out.
Would definitely recommend.

Kids loved the playground, swimming pool and riding in the carts. Great location on the river. Very relaxing place to visit. Also got some great advice on fun free things to do in and own of town. The rope swing 5km further along the road on the river entertained the kids for hours!

Always good to hear about happy children and it is great being the closest park to the fun on the rope swing..its always worth a go if you are kayaking from there with us.
