This place was recommended by the car rental company nearby. The staff was helpful. The price was reasonable. The room was clean and quiet. The location is very convenient to pick up a rental car on next morning.

We stayed here for one night because we had a really early flight in the morning. We booked a standard cabin which had a double bed/single bed bunk set. It also contained a cabinet with plates jug etc. No table or chairs. Little bit far from the toilets in the pouring rain Very basic but perfectly acceptable for what we... More

Thank you for your review and feedback. Our standard cabins are connected with a long under cover walkway to our main ablution block so hopefully you did not get too wet. Hope to see you again and remember to book direct for the best prices for our ensuite accommodation. More

The room exceeded our expectations and was just perfect for our young family. The playground was great and the free colouring in sheets a real bonus for the children. The staff were awesome and super friendly. The laundry amenities were the best we've come across while travelling and the whole park was neat, clean and tidy.

Used this camping before but think it will be Spencer for the next time. 32 dollar for 1 person on a powered site is too expensive. First the positive, its close to the airport.

The park is very near to the airport. I made a mistake in the reservation.There was no problem to change booking. Additionally we got deluxe cabin instead of place for tent. Hot showers, clean room and good price, everything was perfect.

Very handy to airport and a great staging post if doing business in the area. Although it was mid-winter, the ensuite room was warm, comfortable and had everything one needed. Despite massive roadworks outside I can see that before long the new amenities coming to the area should provide everything one needs. I don't normally stay in holiday parks but... More
