Executive unit was old, tired and while a recently replaced air-con and fridge were there the unit was not very clean especially the bathroom with dirty walls. The lounge was comfortable once it was wiped over.Double bed was very old and the sheets showed signs of also being old and tired. Overall not a value for money property. This was before the sewerage decided to overflow and stink out the outside. Alternate accommodation was offered.

Not recommended

Very dated, not very well maintained, overgrown - had to break branches to access our room, staff not entirely professional, hot water system very temperamental meaning we had cold showers one night even though there was hot water in the vanity... Overpriced for the quality and size of the room.

Sadly the actual accom did not live up to the pictures or brief that sold it to us. We were looking for clean and comfy budget. We got a previous guests dirty socks in a drawer and less than comfy beds. Hosts were lovely but it was not the experience we expected.

A very basic campground.

Pros: Not a lot, sorry.
Cons: A smile when you check in would be nice :-)
Location: Pretty little town on the waterfront. Ladies at information centre lovely and interesting museum. The Memorial to the Battle of the Coral Sea great.
Stayed here as no other choice, but was very disappointed for the price. Very basic unit which was full of ants - know this is a problem in North Queensland, but other places had bait traps etc and so long as you don't leave food about you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of road noise from the trucks at night also.

not what was advertised

Booked 2 brm deluxe cabin which was actually a 1 brm with bunks in lounge backing onto very noisy highway. Staff friendly and room clean but not a 2 bedroom cabin as advertised and paid for.

Our website states "separate master bedroom and bunks in main living area". None of our rooms have two separate bedrooms. Thank you for staying with us.
