This is handy if you need to overnight before taking a flight out. Though would need a cab - too far to walk. I'd thought it might be subject to airport noise but not so. We had a cabin with ensuite. It was fairly basic, the bedroom cramped with only 30cm between bed & wall. Whole place somewhat tired though... More

We stayed in the motel cabins; clean, comfy and warm. The staff were friendly and helpful. Great location for visiting the Antarctic centre and getting to the airport. No restaurant but we had two good nights eating at the highway inn across the road. Decent food and great atmosphere!

We only stayed at this holiday park for one night however we did enjoy our time there. We received a greeting email before arrival and both the ladies we dealt with on reception were exceptionally helpful. We stayed in a basic cabin which was both clean and comfortable with good facilities for the cost. The location is fab because you're... More

Great value for money, convenient location close to the airport and very chilled. Spent a few days at the North South Holiday Park with old friends. Stayed in a cabin which had it's own bathroom, living area (tv and lounge), fridge and oven top. There was one bunk bed in one room, and a second bedroom with double. Had a... More

We stayed for 5 nights in a self contained cabin. The cabin had a fully functional kitchen with microwave and fridge. The cabin was clean and had everything you could ask for expecially if you plan on cooking meals. The WIFI was relaible and fast. The location is very convenient - 5 mins from airport by car and 10-15 mins... More

We (hubby & I) stayed for 3 nights in a Backpacker Cabin over Easter as a getaway. The Cabin had 2x bunk beds so could fit 4x people. It was very simple but did the trick. It was reasonably clean, I would say acceptable. Pleased it had a heater and a plug. We picked this cabin to save on $$$... More

Thank you for your review - it is hard for us to control our guests without knowing at the time that there is a problem. I know we had a few families staying for the BMX Nationals however kids will be kids. I hope this does not stop you from coming to stay with us again and next time your... More

Great that the camping is not very expensive compared to others in this region. 19,50 for 1 person. Its very crowed and not good for sleeping. But of you need to go to the aiport early, this is your campingsite.

Thank you for your review - it is expected to be busy/crowded during our summer season and is the busiest time of year for us. I hope you did manage to get some sleep during your stay. More

This time round we spent time most time in our tent, we were down near the unisex block which is not as clean as the main block.. the strong odour of urine is present in the tiolets because the front of the bowl never got washed. We have spent time in just about all the different cabins and always found... More

Thank you for your review - the unisex block is now being converted to separate mens and womens facilities. We have had a serious talk with our cleaning staff to make sure that all corners and areas are cleaned thoroughly which they do normally do. During our peak season when you were staying we do not usually offer any form... More

This place is convenient, the staff super friendly and the amenities clean. We have camped here in the past but the camping area has been made smaller and it is located next to a construction road, which means backup alarms from about 7am. Should be good when this is resolved. There is a lot off flight noises it that's to... More

Thank you for your review - there are a lot of changes at the moment in our area including the road construction but it will be great when it is finished. Being only 5 minutes from the airport is a huge drawcard for us but it is expected to have some noise from planes. More
