We decided to stay somewhere on the river for one nite as we passed through this area and this place appeared before us. It was far from a stroke of luck. We did eventually get a old cabin on the river although they did try to stiff us with one further back from it after we had paid for the...

We stayed in air conditioned family bungalow, after specifically requesting airconditioning, for 5 nights. We chose this accommodation as it was close to a family event we were attending, but quiet enough for a few days of family relaxation beforehand. We chose this spot over a couple of others as we like fishing and you can fish off the rivers...

First holiday staying in a bungalow / cabin setup. The room itself was average. Not 100% clean but was okay.

Hi there DMW91, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I apologise profusely as there is a "welcome tub" which is placed in each bungalow prior to arrival. The tub has things like dishwashing liquid, chux, scourer etc along with soap, additional toilet paper, maps, etc for you. Seems like one did not make it to your unit....

Hi Jessica-Robyn W, I am sorry that you arrived at a time when we had major problems with the pool filtration system. The pool is serviced by Poolwerx who take great care to ensure that it is sparkling clean. It took some days to discover the chlorinator was faulty and this was rectified as soon as the problem was identified....

Hi Selina81, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. The little one bedroom bungalows are great accommodation for a couple. The main bedroom has 4 walls but it has no door. Additional beds are in the living area and are best suited for kids. The living room beds double as seating and are foam mattresses on a timber...

What a complete let down. The website and the pictures are not an accurate image of what we were greeted by. The rooms at best would be better described as poor quality dongas. We booked the superior cabin and found the cabin was very run down and old. Rusty chairs and cabinets. Inadequate seating. Sofa ripped and broken. Rubbish still...

We stayed for 4 nights in a cabin on the waterfront. We had 2 jetskis which was why we picked the place. The lagoon goes straight out into the River, so the trip up and down the river is great. Also a great place to stay if you don't have watercraft, as it quiet and relaxing. Having the tavern within...
