I stayed at the Portland Bay Holiday Park for a night in August of this year, in a standard cabin. As mentioned by other reviewers, the park itself is undergoing improvements - however I can only see this as a good thing! The most important feature of any great caravan park is friendly service - and Portland definitely have that right.
The cabin itself is pretty basic - but perfectly fine for a traveler passing through such as myself. The park's website clearly identifies inclusions / exclusions and photos of what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. Very clean and cosy - and the Foxtel was a lovely and welcome addition after a day on the road!
The location of the park is brilliant - a short walk / drive to the main street and also the wharf which was a favourite stop of mine. I highly recommend heading down there at sunrise - it's wonderful to watch all the activity at that time of the day.
Overall, I don't think you will find many places with the inclusions that Portland offers for the same price - the value here was excellent. Thank you very much to Antonella and Bruce for looking after me - I wouldn't hesitate in staying at this park again.
