What is a co-ed dorm?
The Arbutus room is our only dorm-style room where both men and woman share one large room. Beds are individual ‘twin’ size, five being lower beds, with an additional two upper bunks. Please see the floor plans for how spacious the room is. We endeavour to give travellers as much space as feasible and whenever possible will not put one man and one woman in the room (unless they are travelling together), by using another room as a temporary dorm.
Do you have off street parking?
Yes, we have space for 4 or 5 well-parked cars off-street, and encourage you to park in that space.
Can I get a discount?
We are already one of the best value accommodations on the Sunshine Coast, but offer a 10% discount when 7 or more consecutive nights are booked. Please call for off-season monthly rates.
Are you open year round?
Yes, we are open 365 days per year, except when emergencies or Government rules force closure.
Do you have secure bike storage?
We have an undercover bike storage area at the rear of the property, away from the ‘public eye’, with locking eye bolts for about 6 bikes. It is not enclosed. Up The Creek has multiple loaner bikes at the property, all unlocked, and Roberts Creek is a very safe environment with little to no crime.
Can I get an early check-in?
No, sorry, only by special arrangement. It is important that we have adequate day-time to clean and air the property and rooms. We are happy for you to drop bags in the reception room if you arrive early by bus or bike. Please though, no expected use of rooms, bathrooms or kitchen before 4pm.
How far is it to the village?
1km, less than 1 minute downhill on a bike or in a car, or a 10 minute walk.
Do you have a smoking/toking area?
Customers are allowed to smoke in a designated area by the front fence, but not close to the property.
We’re booking as a group. What if we want to party till late?
If you’re booking the lodge as a private whole lodge booking, you may use the inside space till whatever time you wish. However if you’ve only booked part of our accommodation and there are other customers around, we request that you respect that not everyone will want to party all night. Outside quiet time is strictly 11pm, and we expect noise to be reduced before that too, out of respect for our neighbours. Please note that a manager./owner lives on site full time and will enforce these rules.
Do you have lockers?
No need, it’s very safe here. But we’re happy to lock valuables in the staff office if you feel happier with that.
Can I use my sleeping bag?
No, sorry. We provide all linens and duvets, this way we can control cleanliness better
Where should I buy groceries?
There is a general store and health food shop in Roberts Creek village, but both are a little expensive. We advise buying groceries at IGA in Wilson Creek or as you pass through upper Gibsons.
Do you have any free stuff?
Yes, lots. Tea, coffee, towels, umbrellas, loaner bikes, sunglasses, flashlights, broad band wifi, growlers, shopping bags, earplugs, slippers, endless tourist advice.
