I stayed there for two nights with my parents. The tent was not initially made for 3 people but the additional bed was correct. The tent is well protected and very comfortable. The outdoor/indoor bathroom was really fun. Everything needed was in it. My only advice would be for the guest not to leave anything to precious on the top of the walls or just outside of the tent overnight because possums like to come around the tent and play with what you may have left there. The restaurant was great and the staff very friendly. (Maybe a bit too expensive, depends on your budget).
"Overpriced camping, nothing glam going on here!!!"
We recently spent three days here with family and expected a whole lot more than what we got for the $605 we paid for each night. There were a couple of positives there being a very comfy bed, albeit without a much needed mosquito net, plus the food was quite nice. But, don't plan on enjoying a swim in the muddy river which runs through the property. That is after pulling muscles trying to get in and out of the river from the old pontoon (a pontoon upgrade and ladder would certainly not go astray) and if a little grassy spot could be planted so one could sit and relax by said river with an evening cocktail or simply to watch the kayakers go by. Not hard. The staff were fine, although glasses, ice buckets etc were left lying around common areas for two days, the tents were fine, a day lounge on the deck instead of upright chairs would have been a treat, but for the money we found the whole experience totally uninspiring and never to be repeated. Absolutely nothing to do and really apart from the comfy bed it really was no different than camping at the local campground and off to the local restaurant. $605 a night - what a rort!!!!!
I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Paperbark Camp (PBC) with friends for New Year. My complaints with PBC stems from my view that for what it is, it is very overpriced. At $605 per night for the basic tent, I expect more than PBC offers. If it was half the price, I would probably give it more stars and a better review. I have done â€œglampingâ€ in Africa and Sri Lanka, so have some reference points for this review. Iâ€™ll start the review positively. The staff were great - fantastic. They were helpful and friendly, and very hospitable. Loved them. They made every guest feel welcome and comfortable. The beds were very comfy, with lovely white linen, and nice fluffy towels. But that is where it ends. My criticisms may seem picky, but at $605 per night, I have paid for that privilege, and they must be viewed in the context of the per night price. The price includes breakfast and dinner. As a single person, I asked when booking if there was a discount on the room rate, as they would only be serving 2 meals, not 4, per day for that price. No discount was offered. The food was good, but not great, and certainly nothing to rave about. Alcohol was expensive - remember to take your own (although you cannot take it into the restaurant). The restaurant itself had the feel of an upmarket cafeteria. The tents were just tents built off the ground, with decks and outside bathrooms. Nothing to write home about, and for the price does not compare to Africa or Sri Lanka. My tent and that of my friends were not serviced until late in the afternoon. Every morning, a thermos of hot water is left on the stairs. A seemingly nice touch. But this meant that if you were a coffee drinker, and wanted a coffee in your tent before brekkie, you had to use instant coffee and UHT milk capsules. For $605 per night, it would be easy to ask each guest at check in if they would like brewed coffee delivered in the morning, so that there is no need for the dreaded instant. The bathroom was OK - the outdoor shower has reasonable water pressure, but the mirror was tiny - like a shaving mirror - and there wasnâ€™t much bench space to leave toiletries (and they got rained on if left on the wrong side). Remember, this was $605 per night - I was not in the camp ground at Huskisson! Lastly, you need to love the bush and the wildlife to enjoy your stay here. Iâ€™m not a fan of either, which was my own big mistake. Iâ€™m a beach person, and I naively assumed that accomodation at 5 star prices at Jervis Bay would be a short walk to the beach. PBC is not. You have to drive to get to a beach (or ride a bike). This was my misunderstanding, and not the fault of PBC. Iâ€™m just noting it in my review so that others donâ€™t make the same mistake. Oh..and my reference to wildlife includes mozzies, which are everywhere and very persistent. And ants. On my return home, I have just fumigated the car to get rid of all the ants which somehow found their way inside. Overall, a very overpriced two days in the bush.
"One for the Bucket List"
I planned this stay for my husbands Birthday Surprise. Even thou it rained for the 2 days we were there, it was Most Relaxing. We took up the Picnic Basket option and the massage in the tent which my husband said was Amazing. The tent setups are well done most comfortable and a leisurely soaking in the bath of an evening under the stars drinking wine is a must. The restaurant common area is a lovely space along with the surrounding deck areas. The food is very nice, not Great but definitely a treat while camping, and breakfast options excellent. Staff were lovely. Well done to the proprietors for creating Paperbark I can't image it was an easy task. Glamping is one for the Bucket List !
"Great Glamping !"
I stayed at Paperbark Camp for 3 nights in December 16. My family stayed in the main 'tent' which is really a hotel room with canvas walls etc ! Beautiful room, comfortable beds, outdoor protected shower and toilet (all good fun and nicely appointed). Tent/room seals up very well and well protected from insects/heat/rain. There is a main congregating area/reception where everyone eats breakfast and dinner, and there is a bar. Food was was good, not amazing, but you are afterall 'glamping' so I think totally satisfactory. There are bikes to ride, canoes and kayaks to paddle in (all free), and campfire to sit around at night-time if you want to. There are central fridges provided if you want to store food, drinks, alcohol etc. Camp is about a 10 minute drive from Jervis Bay and other nearby towns. I highly recommend staying here - 3 or 4 nights probably enough.
