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.

Great friendly park to stay, plenty of amenities and facilities, pool, mini golf, playground and jumping pillow for kids. Huge camp kitchen. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again. Was a very popular park with lots coming and going. Just outside of Hahndorf right opposite the market, great location. Only negative is no fly wire doors on the cabin.

Stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bed cabin cost - $667.95. The location is very pretty and if we had brought a Caravan we would not have experienced hardly any of the issues. But the issues are Serious and worth noting if you plan to stay here. Poor Maintenance During our stay my partner was helping our 6 year old daughter out of the shower when the shower door came off in my partners hands. The door (see Photos) is heavy glass or reinforced plastic door at least 20-25kg and I had to help her to move the door to a safer location. Also during our stay the circuit breaker tripped whilst using a toaster. Poor Standards & Items not working correctly. There were also basic issues with: - dirty drinking glasses used placed back into cupboard, - shower fixtures, shower head fitting 20mm away from wall (see Photos), - shower mould (grout needs a thorough clean and/or replacing), - dodgy aircon unit (had to turn off at night due to noise) - internet signal not strong enough & screencast not working on TV - went for a BBQ by the lake but it was out of order But we're really concerned about the shower door and the electrics. Poor Customer Service When leaving the accommodation we explained the issue with the shower door and the electrics (we didn't mention the additional basic issues above). We asked for a senior member of staff to call us back regarding the safety issues. Two days later we received a call from a receptionist stating the shower door had been fixed 6 months prior and was pleased to say it's been fixed again this week. Minimal apology, no mention of the electrical issue, no discount and no customer service. No idea what has changed, but this is our 2nd visit to DiscoveryParks Handorf we stayed here in February 2023 and had a few days there and had a great time in a cabin 2 doors down from where we stayed. We still await and would like contact, from a manger or person in authority from Discovery Parks with an explanation of their customer service policy regarding serious safety issues and do they think their response is adequate. We've contacted and reported the events to the ACCC and await their response. If you are thinking of staying here the scenery, location and proximity to Hanhdorf is wonderful. We live in Adelaide and this was going to be a base for us to take the kids frequently and explore the Adelaide Hills. Due to our experience (dodging heavy glass doors isn't fun) we would never set foot here again.

Powered caravan site was truly outstanding. Views over the valley. Friendliest front staff. Magnificent ablution block. Stroll to Hanhdorf. Strong Optus coverage. Even the dump point is first class. This is one of the very best caravan parks we have ever stayed in and I've been towing vans for 30 years. Would give 6 stars if I could!

We booked a three bedroom Lakeview cottage for four adults and two kids sharing. None of us went away saying we made the wrong decision or that we didn’t enjoy our time there, or that we’d never stay again…… It was fun to play mini golf (kids and big kids alike!) and it’s a pleasant stroll into the town so we enjoyed the location for a nice stretch of the legs. We cooked a couple of meals and found the kitchen had what we needed, so no qualms there. And the kids enjoyed the ducks coming to visit. Ok so far. Perhaps by necessity, the cottage had a ‘wipe down’ feeling about it though. By that I mean it was a very boring, blank canvas without any nice decorative features so it felt very cold - a bit like you were on school camp, and a bit like you could ‘wipe it down’ if you made too much mess! The L-shaped sofa felt like something you’d sit on in a departure gate at an airport or waiting for someone in a shopping centre. Hard and uninviting, but practical I suppose for such accommodation. The actual cottage was far nicer to look at on the exterior. It was quite ‘cute’ and as you approach it you think ‘oh that looks quite nice’. So, it was fine, but two quite surprising aspects: First, the email confirmation we received indicated that if we were going to arrive after reception closed then they’d text us instructions for access. Like SO many other similar accommodations we’ve stayed at, we assumed that would mean we’d be told where a key box was and what code to use. No, they rang as reception was closing and asked when we were coming (8pm) and also told if we were later, it would not be possible to arrive after 10pm (errrrr!!!) because we now needed to call the night manager on arrival to come to meet us and hand over a key. Maybe the night manager likes their sleep!!!! What an antiquated system, given that key boxes are hardly great technological advances and can be purchased at any Mitre 10!! Anyway, we did arrive at 8pm so no issue reaching the night manager, but this is just a general flaw. Too bad if we’d had car trouble and been running late driving in from interstate or something….. Secondly, the poor cleaning of the shower floor tiles was quite amazing. On the surface the cottage appeared fairly clean but we could actually scratch patterns right into the soap scum on the tiles!!! Awful. We reported this in the customer feedback but heard no more. So if it was not for these two points, we’d probably have felt more positive about Discovery Parks Hahndorf Resort.

Hi Lisa, Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lengthy review. We appreciate your comments and will act on them. Just so that you know, we used to leave the keys in a drop box for guests who arrive after hours, but we found a few customers were booking on stolen credit cards and then stealing some of the contents in our cabins. We decided to ask our on-call person to confirm their details when they arrive and since then those people no longer try their luck on our park. I do apologise for the soap scum in the showers - our housekeepers have been told and they have done a deep clean now. And we now have the budget to upgrade the cottage completely with new carpets, new furniture and an upgraded kitchen. We hope you will enjoy it a lot more when you come for another visit.

The accommodation was lovely, quiet and ample space for our family of 6. I gave it a 4 as the couches were quite uncomfortable given the price per night. Great you don’t have to bring your own linen! We would definitely come here again and recommend it to other families.

The park itself is well maintained and picturesque. We seldom stay at caravan parks, and our experience cemented our reasons why. We lucked out and were allocated a powered site on a corner near the camp kitchen. Lots of traffic. The approach angle to the site was a bit steep making it more difficult to manoeuvre the van. We would have looked past this and put it down to experience, it certainly wasn’t going to put a damper on our weekend. But being woken about midnight by shouting, screaming, foul language and what appeared to be aggressive behaviour cannot be overlooked. This went on for some time. It was quite disconcerting when the commotion moved to the grass on the corner near our site. Unfortunately we could not find the info pamphlet with the after hours contact number to complain. We were on the verge of calling the police when thankfully it all quietened down. It’s a pity such behaviour went on for as long as it did and ruined our stay.

Such a lovely holiday park. Our cabin was wonderful! Very clean and fresh with what looked like new amenities. Plenty of space for a young family of 4. The resort itself has great amenities - jumping pillow, pool, mini golf, playground and a games room. The staff were friendly and helpful too. Location was great, just a short drive upto the main street in Hahndorf. We will definitely return next time we’re in Hahndorf.

We had a two bedroom cabin and it exceeded expectations. Approaching the cabin through the grounds is very picturesque with the lake and greenery. The parking was next to the cabin, conveniently. The cabin furnishings and decor were modern and appealing. The rooms were spacious and it had all the modern, upmarket amenities required, including electric blankets. It was clean and fresh and a pleasure to walk into. We enjoyed eating on the private back patio with the garden backdrop. The property is opposite the popular market store and a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Hahndorf. Our only criticism was that although both bedrooms had heating, the living area did not and had to rely on the bedroom heaters to heat the whole space. We were very pleased with our choice overall and would highly recommend.
