Because we were driving for 850km, my husband and I decided to hire a cabin in a caravan park for a much needed rest at the end. We requested a cabin at Stuart Range, which is the type of accommodation we have sought all over Australia. This usually provides us with a comfortable lounge couch or chairs, and cooking facilities that allows us to maintain our individual diets. If we didn't want cooking facilities, we could book a room in a motel. Although I booked 500 km ahead, when we arrived we were not booked in and the staff were critical of their colleagues. They did not mention the camp kitchen and by the time we read about it, we had already been out to buy food. We were amazed to find that the 'cabin' at Stuart Range was nothing more than a very basic room with an ensuite. As a cabin it did not supply cooking facilities, or comfortable seating. As a motel room, it did not provide the nicety of bedside tables, comfortable seating or bedside lights. The TV was so high it was difficult to watch. The bed linen was placed on the unmade bed and the fridge and air con not turned on. The advertising is misleading for Australian travellers who understand what a cabin is.
