We spent a night in a cabin at this caravan park and based our choice on other reviews, the fact it was listed as a dog friendly park and we wanted a cabin with an ensuite. This was going to be the last stop on a road trip that my husband and our 2 year old toddler did across the nullarbor before heading back home to Adelaide. The cabin cost $133 which we had assumed at payment included linen but then found out later, it didn't. When we arrived and checked in, we were told briefly about the cabin and where it was situated in the park. We had also enquired about the patio area where our dog could stay as the website stated "Dog friendly cottage accommodation so you can travel with your pet and they have a comfortable stay in the enclosed patio area." However we were quite rudely told that if our dog fouled the area, we would be charged a $30 cleaning fee. As a result, we elected to leave our dog outside the cabin for the evening due to the threat about the cleaning fee. We even took photos of the patio area on departure in case the charge came off our credit card.
On arrival at the cabin it was pretty dark as we fumbled around to open up and find some lighting. Once we opened up the cabin we then realised the ensuite was separated by the patio so to get to it we had to walk outside into a cold, unheated bathroom. Not great in winter when you have a 2 year old. Probably the only good thing about this place is that it was clean.
In our view the cabin was pretty basic, the park was not dog friendly and the service we received was unfriendly and definitely not worth the $133. Needless to say we won't be back here and won't be recommending this park to others.
