We just had a fabulous stay here with our 3 kids. It's in a fabulous location basically across the road from the visitor centre. The shop is handy and we liked how the cabins felt like they were in the bush. Our cottage was much more spacious than we expected and the (two) heaters worked well - important as its...

Cabins great and well equipped but beds need an urgent update for $230 do not expect to feel springs in bed. Lack of sleep does not make good day. Cabins are warm and have great cooking gear, hot water and clean but beds are what we remember.

Stayed in the self contained cabins, which are a little bit pricey but in keeping with all prices on the mountain. We found the cabin (which apparently can hold 6) more than adequate for the two of usthough I can't imagine having any more than two kids with you, there would be no where for them to sit to eat....

We're happy to hear that you were comfortable in the cabin and that you got to see a bit of snow! Thank you for sharing your review.

It is a very complete cabin with comfortable living room. There is a fire place to keep us warm during the cold weather. Kitchen is well-equipped with all kinds of utensils. A great place to have a warm meal. Bathroom and toilet are separate and clean. Bedroom is quite small though and mattress are too soft. You can't move without...

For the price of the cabin the quality of the bed was awful with both my partner and I experiencing sore backs and a bad night sleep. There was also no soap in the bathroom dispensers. The staff at check in were lovely though and the heaters in the cabin were toasty warm. We stayed in the spa cabin but...

Great atmosphere with plots surrounded by bush making them private and adding to the wilderness atmosphere. Camp kitchen well appointed and a good place to socialise with other travellers. 2 min walk to visitor centre which was great for an early start hike into the national park before crowds arrived.

Location is great as it is very near to the Visitor Centre where we can catch the shuttle bus to commence our walks. What we love most is the heat blanket that keeps us warm during the night. Very thoughtful.

Me and my husband stayed here one night in one of their dorm rooms (2 bunks) but had it to ourselves which was great!! A bit pricey but it included sheets and blankets and worth it for it's excellent location (and escape from the rain!) as it's almost as close as you can stay for access to the park. Staff...

We stayed in a powered site. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We arrived after hours and we had clear instructions on where to locate our access code and how to locate our site. The camp kitchen is huge and clean - the best part is the open fire which made for a lovely cozy camping experience. They have...

Great base to stay..eco friendly and a wildlife sanctuary. Loved Dove lake walks ..something for every level. Quiet and basic supplies and wifi available at the store but pick up groceries in Sheffield on your way.
