We were a party of 6 - parents, 3 adult childrent and one 6 year old. We booked 2 holiday cabins in July and asked if they could be close to eachother. We got them next to eachother in lovely quiet corner. The cabins were also not on top of each other with a lovely little court yard for each so noise wasn't really a factor at all. It was very quiet at night when we were there.
This is actually the second time my husband had stayed here, staying here a decade earlier.
The cabins were clean and comfortable and each one had an airconditioner that cooled the cabin off really quickly.
The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and though we never really had to ask for much they were always happy to oblige us with what ever we did ask for.
Location was ideal. 30 mins to the popular theme parks (at the most) and there was a big Coles about 10 minutes around the corner in a small shopping square. For those who want to do more shopping, Aust. Fair was again, no more than 20 mins away also. In addition there were so many fast food and resturants within walking distance it was terrific (esp. if you have young kids that don't want to walk far or older ones that might want a drink with dinner and you don't want them to drive. There was KFC across the road and McDonalds over the bridge. There were a couple of Chinese Restuarants and 2 mexican ones. Plus Indian and a steak/seafood resturant also. Really great.
The pool and spa at the front of the park was fantasic, the kids spending every afternoon in there and the barbeque facility was also terrific. While it cost money to use them it cost us all of 60c (yes, cents not dollars) to cook up steaks and sausages for all of us so needless to say we used the BBQ a couple of times when we ate in.
The cost was very economical and we'd defintely go back again.
