“There are much better places for a few dollars more”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Stayed in one of the park cabins (standard family @ $95.00 per night), lucky we only booked for 1 night.
The cabin was old and worn out and whilst not unclean it was very grubby (finger marks over the walls etc) - nothing a good spring clean and some TLC wouldn't fix.
Very poor quality considering the price (more of a $60 fishermans cabin)
What else was wrong: Fridge shelves broken, No spare pillows (only 1 each - lucky we had our own), Lovely sign warning of a "cleaning fee" if you didn't wash your dishes, fair enough but at least provide a sponge and a tea towel.

Won't be back.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.

We have stayed at several TopTourist parks and enjoyed the high standards. This one may very well be OK but we never found out because we arrived at 6.15pm to find the office reception closed and a sign telling customers that there is a $50 fee for late arrival. How rude!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2011

We stayed here for one night in a campervan, not knowing what to expect. It was appealing right from the front desk. The owner was very friendly and answered all our questions, inlcuding where we should have dinner, and even gave us a free stubby holder as we told her we would be collecting them along the way.
Shower/toilet block was lovely and very clean with old towels provided as floor mats. This may seem insignificant but its of great help when trying to dress in a wet shower block.
Thoroughly recommended.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2009

We have recently been on our 1st holiday to Whyalla. We went there not knowing what to expect and immensley enjoyed ourselves. Our accommodation was very clean & supplied all the mod cons. The price was very reasonable. Staff were very friendly and more than helpful, suppying us with upto date tourist information. Our children had a ball on the newly installed Jumping Pillow and playground.
