Loved it all! The putt-putt area needs a bit of TLC but apart from that I'd love to come back for a longer period (rather than just an overnighter).

Great park with plenty to do. Very frustrated that our room was pictured with a door to the bunk room this was not the case. Off all of the cabins do not have a door then the photo used to advertise this space needs to be changed. We ended up leaving at 8pm and driving the extra few hours home because our kids could not get to sleep no matter what we tried, very disappointing given the photo clearly pictured a door for this room

Cabin was small, we were a bit squished with six of us, but on the other hand it was good value for money. Next time I would probably pay more for a bigger room. Communication was excellent. Everything was very clean. The kids loved the splash park and games room.

When we arrived, there was broken glass over the floor. Advertised as a property for 6 people, we were surprised when the cabin was much smaller than the images provided.
