We stayed in the original cabins on site. The property was fine/expected. The cleanliness was an issue to the point of requesting another cabin. I took photos and a video of our "experience ".The first cabin (2), what do I say, toilet door did/didn't shut depending on the time of day, unused bunk beds looked slept in, mould (maybe) on chopping board, every kitchen item had to be washed prior to using, dirty hand marks on sliding doors and splatter(?) on blinds, dirt and a (thank God he was dead) cockroach behind toilet, pee stains on outside of toilet bowl. The first night we went to bed and left to checkout the sights. Everything was walking distance, we drove though as it was too hot. That evening I thought to check the bed properly. I found wriggling red worms on the mattress. Google said maybe carpet beetle babies. After a photo and video, we headed after hours over to reception to explain our concerns. On the phone, the lady explained she was a distance away but another cabin (16) was available for us. The new cabin was "clean" but ... needed dusting, a good vacuum, kitchen bin was missing, outside light didn't work, was very creaky near the bathroom. Our Ford Ranger just fit in the tight car parks. We didn't use the kitchen in the second cabin. The cabins did have good showers. A second aircon would be nice in the lounge/bunks.

We stayed in one of the Slab Flat Huts, the hut was clean, it was so unique that we were both extremely impressed, the outside baths were also an extremely amazing experience. We really did enjoy our stay there, and we can’t wait to come back.

The units are a beautiful mixture of heritage design with modern facilities. The bed was comfy. The units were very clean and tidy. The pool was great for a warm spring afternoon. The only negative (which wasn't really a negative and didn't really affect our stay) was the temperamental shower. We found it quite difficult to perfect the hot/cold water ratio. There didn't seem to be a lot of hot water available, but again it was quite warm when we were there, so it wasn't a major issue until we needed to warm up after our swim in the pool. We would stay here again.
