This was our second stay and opted for a smaller cabin. Cabin was very clean and located directly next to the playground, basketball court, tennis court and pool which was very convenient for our children. But this did mean we got a lot of foot traffic around our cabin. All facilities were very clean and modern and check in and check out was very easy. My only complaints would be the size of our cabin, I would definitely opt for a larger cabin than the standard as we felt very cramped with 4 people. We also did not have an iron or ironing board provided and as it gets very cold in ballarat at night, we would have to turn the heater on but once we would put the temperature higher than 22 the power board would shut off and we would have to keep restarting it. Overall a lovely stay, would return, but would choose a different accomodation type.

Place was nice and inviting. Staff were nice 2.00 check in, room wasn’t ready till almost 4.30 Waiting at the gate with a confused and irritated 6 year old got our stay off to a negative start The cabin we stayed in was not level so our the bed was on an angle, feet higher than our heads. Yes I had access to a spirit level and checked so I knew it wasn’t me going mad. Didn’t get much sleep.....I’m not a bat. I don’t usually sleep upside down. On a positive note we had to leave a day early and the staff did refund the last nights stay we had already paid in full for.

Homestead property was listed as for six... "Kids" room (four berth, used by one adult and her three kids) was cramped and scarcely enough for two people. The park itself was well appointed but this accommodation, at nearly $300 per night, was way over priced for the space and facilities provided given that kids were charged at adult prices.
