Wouldn't stay for longer than one night- the cabins are pretty run down. But it was a last minute booking, so we took what we could get. They're all self contained, but everything is in a general state of disrepair. Curtains were torn, carpets stained and walls damaged.

Obviously these cabins need a refurb. Mattress was hard, and there was a distinct smell of mould. The other thing that we didn't like was that dogs were roaming free and barking from 5am. Wouldn't stay for more than 1 night unless we really, really had to.

The unit that we stayed in smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The lounges and bed smelled dusty. It had patched up holes in the walls but hadn't been painted. The fridge had been turned OFF and the trays inside it were full of water. The kitchen floor looked like it hadn't been cleaned for ages. Towel rails and door handles...

We were only there for a quick overnighter - arriving late and leaving early - so we booked a cabin. It was neat and clean, apart from the con webs in the exposed rafters and down the walls. I bit drab and dingy.

We will never stay here again. The rooms are badly in need of refurbishing. To make matters worse our cabin is located near the function room and we now are dealing with drunk, rowdy guests milling around our vehicle directly outside our cabin, keeping us all awake at 10pm at night. If we wanted to stay in a nightclub we...

This place is disgusting, they charged me an extra $40.00 for 2 children under 10. The cabin was run down with holes in the walls, plaster on the walls that needed painting. No TV remote, no fry pan to cook in, no sharp knife to cut veggies. The rudest staff I have ever come across. I will never stay here...

Dirty carpet - holes in walls patched but not painted. Office hours not opened very long. Staff helpful though when there. TV small with no remote. Beds uncomfortable and old. Kitchen benches had burns in them - kitchen facilities very basic. Not very impressed given that it wasn't that cheap.

When I booked this accomodation 2 bedroom cabin I asked for a quite location, well nobody told me that we would be surrounded by all the trailers and boxer dogs for some championship (I realise this is a dog friendly venue) they were the most inconsiderate people with their noise, slamming of trailer doors, dogs barking and no regard for...

We usually stay at the Mercure when visiting the Penrith area but they were booked solid for the weekend we went down. My Partner and I paid $165 for a 2 bedroom cabin that was the last in line of the rentals (Number 21) I'm guessing by all the other comments on here that some of these cabins are hit...
