Albany Gardens Holiday Resort

Reviewed 29 January 2014

The Park was very Clean and Tidy (Cleaners do a good job). On our 2 week visit I would NOT recommend for families with children, although the pool was very clean and tidy this was really the only highlight for my 10 year old girls. There are stickers plastered on toilet doors in the common areas stating 'Breath Easy this is a smoke free environment' (we were aware of this prior to booking). There were people smoking everywhere, they even supply cigarette trays!!
Very Dissapointed!!
The main Kitchen has very limited facilities, The fridge is a bar fridge I am not sure how a park of this size can justify that this is enough, there is also no microwave there.
There is a secondary kitchen which does have microwave and another fridge, but this is at the far end of the park, not very convenient.
They have a basketball ring that can only be used when others are not playing tennis as the ring is on the tennis court!!
Wifi was poor and gave up after first attempt.
Most people that stayed for 1 or 2 nights, this can be quite annoying when every morning 5 or 6 caravans are hooking up and setting off at the early hours. Don't get me started on the resident crows!!
Overall the park was clean and tidy. Ideal for people passing through Albany, close to town etc. But as a family very dissapointed. :(

We have stayed here twice now. We have stayed in a chalet which was lovely and clean and maintained This time we had a site which was perfect for our fifth wheeler. Easy to get on and off its also the cheapest park in albany by far and close to everything. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this park

They say they profide free wifi .

We could not get Wifi at our caravan and when we asjked why they said that the wifi was to week to reach the caravands and wifi would be available at the tv room ar the camp kitchen

at both sites we still could not get Wifi and in the end we gave up discusted as this was one of the reasons of picking the caracan site

should not advertise they procide it when in fact we could not get conneted either on our lap top or our Smart phone

Very nice park, well maintained, lots of trees. We needed a wheelchair accessible chalet and if you need this, then ask for Chalet 6. Biggest bathroom ever and very accessible for an electric wheelchair, lots of rails and hand-holds. Terrific staff.

Room Tip: Choose Chalet 6 for wheelchair accessibility.

Checked in and was greeted by friendly staff. Told about all the amenities. We had a camp site it was very spacious for our tent. Love that we had trees above us. Amenities were conveniently across from our site. My 7 year old had a great time feeding the animals our scraps, walking around and meeting new friends. I felt safe letting my daughter swim, Pool is lovely with a safety ledge hand grip around it. Meant i could sit and read on the sunlounge while she splashed about. Will definitely be coming back.

This is a good park. It has drive through sites and plenty of room between vans, makes a change not to be on top of one another. My only criticism is that the toilets and showers are in bad need of an upgrade, but they were clean

Staff were always friendly and helpful, from the first inquiry, through to booking, the stay, and check-out. Amenities are clean and sites large, perfect for a big tent. We had an ensuite tent site and the bathroom was clean and a good size.

Room Tip: If you're a young family who need to go to bed early, just ask not to be placed next to backpack...
