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.

Old bar is a wonderful coastal town we fell in love with this little town unfortunately that where the positivity end! The parks location is top notch the mid aged lady in reception has the most awful people skills and very rude attitude I have experienced in all our years of travelling, talking to others in the park everyone agreed. Daily drive by this lady in here silver car peering into sites its a very uncomfortable feeling. Only 4 showers and toilets are opened with the others locked (in perfect working order) staff don't have to clean with only these few open you would think they would be clean but unfortunately no. Lawns and maintenance could be a-lot better clipping blowing around constantly. Lots of other issues. This park has so much potential its a shame especially considering no other options in the town. Cleaner doing cabin during our stay was very efficient and the only peoples that smiled thank you.

Great caravan park about 4 hours from Sydney. Staff friendly and professional. Fur baby welcome (ring first when booking with pet). Nice sites, clean facilities. Close to the beach and has their own swimming pool. Just outside the gate is a large park/picnic area and a seafood cafe who do a great seafood basket. Will be back for sure

We stayed in a cabin which was a bit dated but had everything we needed. Most of the other cabins are more modern. Good value for money considering the location. Amenities are clean and well looked after and there is an excellent camp kitchen, ideal for large gatherings. Highly recommended for families, couples, anyone.

Me and my wife spent a day calling and leaving messages and emails to book. Didn’t get back to us and spent the next morning calling and finally got onto someone. Walked in the office and waited a while and someone finally came down stairs from watching tv. Got to the cabin and fly screen didn’t lock and then later fell off the runner so couldn’t keep it open for the ocean breeze. Inspected the cabin and smelt a little and noticed water damage all around the skirting. Wasn’t clean as I wiped the bathroom floor and collected dirt and hair from previous people. Found cockroach poo all through the cupboards and dishes. Very dusty and dirt found throughout. Ants crawling along kitchen benches. No exhaust fan on stove top and was badly damaged. Power points needed looking at as they are very old and brittle and doesn’t switch on or off properly. Might come back to see the “new cabins” but doubt we will be back.

WE happened upon this park 11 years ago, when we were looking for somewhere to holiday in our camper trailer with our children. We have been coming to Lani's for all of that time, missing only one Christmas due to a family illness. However, this year we cut our visit short due to the disappointing behaviour of the park managers, Fizal and Wendy. when on holidays, you don't expect to be yelled at by the park manager, and all over the 1 or 2 centimeters our car was over the white line on the road. It the dead tree that was on the corner of the site was removed, we would have been able to easily park our car. In all of the years we have been coming here, there has only been a cosmetic renovation done to the amenities block. On arrival, the concrete slabs were littered with needles from the overhanging trees, and they did not look like they had been cleaned of for a very long time. The grass on all sites was quite long. The way we were treated was not acceptable. If it wasn't for the staff member, Sarah, we would have left the park even earlier than we did. As it was, we left 2 days earlier than we were booked for due to the rudeness of both of the on-site managers.

Chose this park as pet friendly and dogs are allowed on the beach - that was great. However the bathroom ammenities were only cleaned twice in the 9 days we stayed. Expected daily considering Covid . The power outlet for our van burnt out our van lead other outlets looked in similar burnt out condition. The park charges premium rates for a basic park. Cannot recommend

Set right on the beach in the lovely village of Old Bar, we stayed for one night when travelling up North. The site was quite suitable for our van and close to the amenities. This was very handy as the weather was not good and we usually cook outside our van so used the camp kitchen instead. Very cosy with lounges, books to read and tv.

What a perfect spot! We’d wanted to try Lani’s for a while & finally got around to making the trip this weekend with a few friends. Reception was super friendly when we arrived, checked us in & was so welcoming to our big dog! Site was a great size, well kept and clean. Facilities are grwst - toilets and showers new & so clean. Camp kitchen huge and very well appointed with cooking/cleaning tools available. Great location right on a huge stretch of beach. Wonderful stay & we will definitely be back!
