“Bush setting a short drive from the beach”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Booked a standard cottage and got a superior.. Thanks for the upgrade.

Peaceful bugs setting with a clean cabin with everything you need.

Firewood was purchased and we enjoyed the wood fire.

Lots to do on-site, but up it was raining so we just enjoyed the cabin.

Would stay again and would bring the kids! They'd love it!

We had our wedding at Kianinny at the end of April and it by far exceeded our expectations with both its beauty and service. The location was gorgeous for ceremony, reception and photos. The pavillion was decorated beautifully, the food was great, the service fantastic and the owners Richard and Jane were simply wonderful. They could not do enough for us. All of our guests loved it too and the kids were constantly entertained with the large variety of activities. The cabins are so cute and the location of the bridal suite...perfect. We would highly recommend it as a wedding venue!!! Thank you so much Kianinny for the most memorable experience, we will be back for our anniversary.

I stayed at here with my 10 year-old son for 5 nights in one of the cabins we had a wonderful time walking, playing games, making bows and arrows cooking on the bbq and spending time looking at the range of wildlife abounding (loved the goannas and possums). After this visit we returned with the whole family and just had the best time using the Resorts facilities and marvelling at the disused high (tree-top) challenge course. During this visit we met new owners Richard and Jane who were very welcoming and hospitable. Sue looked after us and gave us information on activities in the area and the Superior cabin was great with sheets provided.
We have a fairly tight travel budget and the value at Kianinny was great. They seem to have special deals quite regularly and the place is just beautiful in the quieter off-season.

A nice drive from Canberra, Kianinny Resort was a great retreat for the family to have some time together. Plenty to do and one day we just spent doing everything that was on offer there. Will definitely go again.

We recently (Sept 2013), spent 16 days at the resort. It was the third time and remains our favourite holiday destination. The cedar cabins were emaculate, well furnished and clean. The outdoor facilities from pool to tennis court was well maintained. All these facilities were wonderful for our children. What takes my breath away each time we visit is the resorts scenery, wildlife and forest bush walks. With the great hosts and staff at the resort we are returning in January 2014. I highly recommend the resort to all seeking hospitality and a relaxing family destination.

We generally had a pleasant stay at Kianinny Resort but we were disappointed with aspects of our stay. The mattress in the main bedroom had lost its spring....would suit honeymooners as it encouraged you to roll to the centre of the bed, but we barely slept a wink. The water pressure in the cabins was next to a dribble, and every time I openedd the curtains in the main bedroom to view the beautiful morning greeting me, the curtain rod would fall down. My main gripe was that the resort offered a games room and mini golf but this was all at an extra charge....and the golf wasn't cheap. The solar heated pool was freezing....the beach was warmer. We mostly enjoyed our trip but I would not return.

We are pleased that your stay at Kianinny was generally pleasant however we are concerned that you found some aspects of your stay disappointing as we gauge our performance entirely on customer feedback. Its important for guests to make us aware if they have a problem so that we can work on rectifying the situation.
As one might expect there are often aspects of comments that are subjective and sometimes its important to look for and subsequently act on trends in what people are saying. I think you have a valid point with regards the games room charge for the Pool Table and as a result we will be removing the money slot from the table. The free activities on site include table tennis, canoeing, volley ball, basketball, tennis, walking tracks, swimming, badminton and we provide free board games, books and DVDs. The 18 hole Mini Golf course which many have viewed as the best on the South Coast requires a great deal of upkeep. We feel a family pass ( 5-6 people) for a total of $10.00 is not unreasonable.
On your departure we noted your reference on the “Comments Form” referring to the loose curtain rod. Having been reinstalled just prior to your arrival and subsequent to the room being painted, we discovered the bracket screw hadn’t been fully tightened. It was a two second job which had we been made aware during your stay, would have rectified immediately.
I’m at a loss to understand the water pressure comments. Like you I hate showers that dribble. We are on town water supply and after literally hundreds and hundreds of room nights we have never had a complaint about Kianinnys water pressure. I have just checked the shower and found it to be fine.
We would agree that the pool is cool in September but as advertised it is solar heated and we are just coming off the back of shorter and cooler winter days. Having said that I think we can improve the situation next year by using a night cover.
