Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was very happy to see and use their disabled bathroom facility. Shower chair, hand rails both both showe and toilet, and a handheld/fixed shower. As someone with reduced mobility, it was much appreciated.

The site for or motorhome of 6.9 metres fitted snuggly into the space but more than enough side room for the sunshade,

Short walk down stairs to a lively quiet and dog friendly beach. The steps are a good size with handrails either side. The steps are not disabled friendly.

Booked an ensuite site and was glad we did, the park was extremely busy which is excepted this time of year. The ensuite (although a little pricey) was the best I have ever seen in a caravan park, modern, clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful, we would stay there again if in the area.

Recently visited NRMA Portland. Besides the beautiful location and large sites, the owners were so welcoming, going above and beyond to provide live entertainment for guests, tourist information as well as accommodating an extension of our stay. We will definitely be back next summer.

I would like to highly commend the management team at the Portland Bay Holiday Park. Please pass this on to the relevant person.
Where do we start? We stayed here for 3 weeks, unfortunately due to an issue with our vehicle, but having experienced this we could not speak more highly of the management of this park. They went above and beyond our expectations in assisting us to get back on the road to continue our travels. Nothing we needed was too much trouble. We had the perfect site, the amenities and location were top notch. The cleanliness and maintenance of the park was faultless as was the greeting and assistance we received from the administration team whenever we contacted them. The Happy Hour/Live Music sessions put on by Gavin and his daughter Elly, two very talented people were awesome and Dee even walked around with plates of nibblies. Thank you both so much, we will definitely recommend you and will be back in the future without hesitation.
Thank you Gavin and Dee and thank you NRMA Portland Holiday Park

Visited over Easter and was disappointed with the ammenities.
The caravan park was full, and the toilets weren’t cleaned often enough. Would have expected additional cleaning.
By mid-weekend, the bins were full, all around the park. By the end of Easter, they were overflowing.
The camp kitchen was quite small, had to queue for a spot to cook dinner. Again, insufficient cleaning over the long weekend.
I can imagine that the park would be pleasant off season, the tent sites were grassy. Location is along the cliff tops, a short walk from the shops.

We stayed at one of the cabins for a family of 3. Check-in was a breeze and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. All cooking utensils/cutlery and appliances were provided. The cabin also came with a BBQ pit at the porch. Pity the weather was TOO COLD to use it.

The property is located next to the sea which we could easily access via the side gates. There is a lighthouse just outside the holiday park. We also spotted a few koalas on the tree next to our cabin!

This park is amazing as are the managers. From the minute we stepped in the office we were treated like family & we were home for a few days. The grounds & facilities are kept to a very high standard with added touches like the help yourself vege garden & eggs from the chook house. Our ensuite powered site was excellent. Slab & grassed site with what has to be the best ensuite bathroom we've had, super clean with towels & products also. Looking through the amenities, camp kitchen and grounds its apparent the whole park is well maintained. Its a credit to the managers & we will certainly be back, thanks for a fantastic stay Colin and Violet.

It had a quiet and tranquil environment. The Water view cabin we stayed had an uninterrupted view of the surrounding nature. Holiday Park was conveniently located to get to the city and the Portland historical tram too stopped there. Cabin was well equipped and spacious. Best suited for family. At the reception the gentleman who received us was extremely helpful and courteous. He gave us directions to the attractions and showed all that in a map helping us to explore the area conveniently. The period of our stay was marred by wet weather and strong winds. However, we were able to visit most of the places that we initially intended, beating the unpredicted weather pattern.

Very nice park with friendly exceedingly helpful staff. Camp kitchen does the job, grounds are well maintained, and there are koalas in the park trees if one looks for them. Powered site was large and power and taps close. Amenities were kept clean and plenty of bins about the park.
