The Island itself is beautiful but unfortunately Keppel Haven is one of the worst places I have ever stayed. We went there for a friend's wedding so we had our own fun but if I went there just for a holiday only I would be FURIOUS! Expensive, poorly run, terrible food, shower not working. All bad. Wish we had've known...

definitely not worth $180 per night - cabins basic and poorly positioned. Only appeared to be 3 on beachfront whilst the rest were in a valley (the swamp, I called it) looking at other cabins. No hot water except in bathroom and had to ask for the rest of the inventory: electric frypan (as no stove), bowls, etc. No information...

I visited Keppel with 3 clients (children) and 1 work mate...It was the most relaxing 3 days I have had for a long time..Although I was working it did not feel like it. My 3 clients that my workmate and myself took had the best time..it was so rewarding to see the smiles on their faces..the staff were so nice...

I was Caretaker at Keppel Haven for 6 months until Dec 5. Keppel Haven has the most abusive workplace I’ve ever known in my 65 years. The indecency from the top down is disgraceful and like a long list of others, I have not been repaid the money I spent from my Pension to support the Resort. I was also...

Having been to Great Keppel many years ago I was aware of the beautiful swimming /snorkelling spots that I wanted to share with my children and mother. However, our overall experience was one of great dissapointment. Keppel Haven would have to be the most unorganised and unprofessional cutstomer service/accomodation place I have ever stayed at. Everything they advertised to customers...

I thought the place was fantastic, it really gets you away from the city and back to basics. People were fantastic, location was amazing with so many beaches to choose from! Give it a go!

I've stayed on Keppel Island many times as it is a great affrodable and accessible island holiday- good swimming, beach walks, snorkeling. But I don't recommend Keppel Haven. Twice in the last couple of months they have failed to bring my luggage to the ferry- forcing me to miss the ferry back to the mainland. This has never happened to...

To say that this place is basic is an understatement. Cabins are poky but provide everything that you need. If you can't afford to stay on an island along the East coast of OZ, then you can at this place, but be prepared to sacrifice those little luxuries. Island is fantastic, so I gave this place 3 stars just because...
