We have stayed here three times now, but until the showers are sorted and we can rely on having a hot shower we won't be back. The mens and ladies showers were only just warm and intermittently a spurt of hot water got through the system. We were cycling and doing outdoorsy stuff - very disappointed when a tepid shower...

Great facilities, hot showers, big kitchen, fridge, tv, clean, tidy and quiet. The campsites were large and allowed enough room for a car, 2 small tents, a picnic table and extra space. Our group had no issues with this holiday park. I would recommend it to others.

We couldn't get in to our usual favorite place, so took a punt. Nothing special about the surroundings- usual bland camping ground affair. One bedroom cabin seemed OK, but not worth the $119 (holiday weekend). Then I spilled a little hand cream on the bathroom floor and took a damp tissue to wipe it off. It came back BLACK. Office...

Had a fabulous time. Cabin was perfect with lots of fresh air. Tv was a bonus. Bed was comfortable and factilies very clean. Was not disturbed by road noise and was nice being out of town a little. Staff friendly and courteous.

Excellent service. Very pleasant country like atmosphere. All that we required was there. Great shower, too and very comfy bed and sofa for relaxing in. It was great to have a DVD/video player so that we could watch these when the TV was not interesting. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to any... More

We found this motor camp nice, was a bit noisey because of the alternate motorway route, close to town, had all the amenities needed, needed a Tv room. Very helpful staff as we were just picking up a caravan and didn't intend to stay the night anywhere and didn't bring towels so they provided towels for a couple of dollars... More

We had a self contained unit which was more than we expected, it was roomy, clean and in a calm environment, with adequate shower and laundry facilities - very good value for money. Wifi we paid for was rather intermittent, but that might have been due to the storm

I have returned to stay at this holiday park many times and continue to recommend it to others. The friendliness of the family and staff who run this place is exceptional. You cannot fault the kindness and help you get from these people. You will read reviews commenting on how clean the kitchen/shower/toilet blocks are and they are! Exceptionally so.... More

Yet again a great review! Thank you. I am glad you noticed and commented on that absolute ridiculous review we received! It is certainly not a true reflection of our Park and the sad part is that we are unable to confirm that they actually stayed with us! More

We rang ahead on our way to Taupo and arranged last minute accommodation for an overnight stay. We were happy with the friendly welcome and the spacious 2 bedroom self-contained unit we had. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Close to town and other tourist activities, it was ideal for our overnight stay. We would stay... More

Just outside town, but still 5 mins drive away. On the highway, so if you are driving too fast you will miss it. We spent 3 nights in our campervan here and met some of the nicest people ever. Clean bathrooms and stocked kitchen (with free use of utensils and crockery). Very close to Huka Falls - which is one... More
