Our large family group (5 adults + 3 children) really enjoyed our stay at 252 Beachside. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, even opening up the pool especially so my kids could have a swim. We would definitely recommend to other family groups for affordable, spacious accommodation.

We arrived early afternoon and woman that checked us in was super nice and very helpful. Small RV parking area but was just fine for this time of year. Showers were clean and hot. We saw someone using a BBQ for their dinner. We didn't use the kitchen so can't comment about that. There are no views here but you are about 2 mins from the beach and 3 mins to the glow worms.

Nice place, very close to the beach. The facilities are old but the worst were the bucks in the bathrooms. They were everywhere! The relaxing shower wasn't relaxing at all...

Located a short walk from the beach, and an amazing gloworm dell. This is primarily a motel with a courtyard area for motorhome visitors. Facilities were clean and laundry had commercial grade machines. Supermarket and other shops is around 800m walk away. Manager was extremely helpful.

We enjoyed the use of facilities such as the kitchen/lounge and access to wi-fi. Overall, we had a comfortable overnight stay in the holiday park, though some of the utilities, such as the showers, were outdated.

Flat gravelled car park. Not so friendly host. Clean, hot showers. $4 per wash load, $4 dryer. Highlight was near glowworm dell. $35 for 2 unpowered. Or $40 a night powered.

Not too bad a van park. It is dated but the amenities are clean. The hot water was warm enough but I do wonder how people get on in the winter. It was Spring (Oct) when we stayed here. The glow worm den is within walking distance of this place and is lovely to do and it is free. If you are in town and I suggest you go in as there is lots of interesting shops there and if you like a good pie and coffee. You have to go to the Regent Theatre for a pie. They are great.
