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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We recently had a powered site here and while I understand the need for security, I'm just not sure of the necessity or legality of CCTV in the bathrooms. This isn't made clear on their website and I wasn't comfortable with constantly being recorded. I've stayed at multiple van parks over the last month and not one has CCTV in bathrooms or pool areas. I wouldn't have stayed if I knew this was the case.

Needed some urgent accommodation to attend a funeral because our first choice was not up to standard (it smelt). Rang on the off chance they had a cabin left and they did. It’s not a spectacular tourist park but our accommodation was light and airy,, the bed was comfortable, it had a great shower and the hosts were very obliging. Very good value for money.

Booking process was relatively easy with a holding deposit having been taken prior to arrival. Reception was friendly and it was pleasing to see the park had a boom access gate for security. We stayed in one of the studio cabins and it was modern, comfortable, clean and well furnished. It was a very hot day on arrival there and this led to the only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars, and that was the air conditioning. The cabin was very hot on arrival but to activate the aircon required a key that was on the keyring and couldn't be removed. While I get it that some careless people leave the aircon running while they are absent all day, it meant that when my wife and I went to dinner in town that evening, the cabin had heated up again and took a number of hours before it cooled the room again. Some places actually turn on the aircon prior to guests arriving which would be a nice additional touch. All said it's a nice place to stop. Well recommended.

Thank you for your review. I completely understand your concerns with the aircon and yes, we do it because with 19 cabins in our Park there are a lot of people running them all day and with the ever-increasing cost of power we have to be able to combat this somehow without putting other facilities at a disadvantage. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay overall.

Stayed there a week and was really happy the whole time we stayed there. We had a powered site which was dog friendly. Amenities were ck lean and the staff were continually working to keep the park clean and tidy.

Lovely family park!! Our 2 bedroom unit was a good size for our family of six. If you have teenagers travelling with you I would suggest grabbing keys for the park toilet block for showering, etc ($20 refundable deposit required). Park was clean and the pool was welcomed on a hot day. Well stocked kiosk and lovely staff. We will be back for another stay.

Found everything to be very clean. We had a powered site for approximately 2 weeks. Staff were very helpful and the park is pet friendly. BBQ area was family friendly and was always kept clean. We had a large van and we were given a double site but only had to pay for one site.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at this park on a powered site and were very happy with everything. The park is an older one, but is clean and tidy and reasonably priced. Very quiet considering it is on a main road. The park caters for permanents, camping, cabins, powered sites and backpackers. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The worst Kui Park we have sayed at. Bare minimum space for most sites.Site next to us could barely fit a campervan on it and on the other side an Expanda Van bed room encroached on our site.Had we needed to we could not have erected our awning.Could not even park the car across the site. Facilities old and in desperate need of a makeover.

Thanks for your feedback Alex. If you had approached us with your concerns we could certainly have accommodated you on another site or spoken to the neighbours next to you. Whilst some of our facilities are not new, they are certainly very clean which we find is more important to our travellers.
