I just wanted to mention the good service we had, through the whole process of making and changing reservations, service on-site and then a very quick and friendly response when we discovered a billing error, which was mainly caused by people in our group not knowing what they needed to do.

We booked within a week of taking our short road trip and managed to get one of the two Delux Motels on site.The motel was located in a relatively quiet area closer to the road than the river. It was spacious inside and was capable of sleeping five people even though there were only two of us. It also had...

Booked for 2 nights for glamping experience. It's better than I expected. The interior was spacious & clean. Can't fault the facilities, you'll get everything you need. Park is located about 3km from city. Quiet and by the river. Staff were friendly.

We stayed for a couple of nights at a good spot by the river, the facilities were well laid out and clean. The staff were helpful. The site was very quiet after 9.00pm. It,s a bit of a trek to town and no supermarket close by. There was a good street market in town on Saturday.

We booked months ago for 2 couples to stay for a long weekend. We were given a Deluxe 2-bedroom Motel unit. While the unit didn't impress when we first pulled in, the inside looked like a fully refurbished motel unit. Everything was clean and in very good condition. One bedroom with queen size bed, second made up with 3 single...
