Worst holiday. Cabins a good size but terrible beds, had to sleep on pull out couch. Was tired of hearing 'No, sorry we don't have it', or No, sorry it's not working'' from staff if we asked for things. Paid Wifi terrible. Overpriced.

We booked in here for two nights and were given a spot close to amenities which seemed like a good start, but getting to them is a dangerous activity. In the dark there's plenty of places to trip, and our site had a huge hole in the ground which was disguised by grass. The amenities are quite tired and dated... More

Hmm, what can I say. Disappointing that such a spot could have such a poor camp ground. It was very muddy. My tyres got stuck and I slid, making for a pretty tense time trying to park up. In fact it really is a beautiful park. Kitchen facilities were dated but adequate. Obviously busy in the summer as fridges and... More

This camp has so much potential to be such a fun place but the long term lack of maintenance of the campsites makes it a mud hole. While there are so many sites, there is little organisation to them on the ground and it seems that so long as you can find a power point, you can pull up virtually... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom family unit. Good accommodation for the price. Very affordable and you just expect clean and neat and it was. A little bit further away from Christchurch than what we expected but still within easy reach. Only down side was size of main bedroom. You had to walk sideways with your bum to the wall... More

Our family stayed at Spencer Beach Holiday Park for two nights in a motor home. The positives of the park are, the staff are very friendly, the grounds are huge, there is a playground for the kids and it is close to the beach. The negatives were, there are is a large permanent population, (not sure if it is the... More

The five of us stayed here for two nights. We had a tourist flat which had two bedrooms, one double which had no room to move in and one with two singles, and a fold out couch. As we where out nearly all day we didn't mind the lack of room. Was quiet, didn't hear the neighbours. And we where... More

First the good stuff: the unit was clean and reasonably well appointed, with enough cooking gear to make basic meals. The cafe did very good takeaway chips. Plenty of room to walk around and a nice playground for the kids. Not so good: It was very loud, with the next door neighbors partying until well after midnight. Most holiday parks... More

For tent dwellers this park offers enormous space, one of the largest we stayed at around NZ. Plenty of showers & toilets, a tv room etc, all the norm. Nice, helpful staff. Appears to get quite busy. Beach is not too far away, either a 15 minute walk (approx) or drive. Its fully fenced, uses a drop down gate bar,... More
