We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and quality of these units. They were right out the back of the park so there was next to no noise/traffic from the rest of the park. Kitchen included a non-stick electric fry pan which was super handy for keeping costs down on our last-minute-budget trip. Our only complaint was that we couldn't... More

Stayed at Amber Park Holiday Park for several weeks in one of their 1 bedroom Park Motels. It was like a “Home away from Home”, tucked away from the main camp. The Motel was very clean and well set out with every thing needed for a very pleasant stay. The camping ground (Holiday Park) is very tidy, set out in... More

Disappointing; very disappointing. Staff were rude, and generally very unhelpful. We were offered what can only be compared to as a swamp for a site to park at. Mud was up to our ankles which is not ideal when there is 3 of us walking in and out of a canpervan. Also rather pathetic when there is 4 empty concrete... More

Motorhome site, powered. Clean tidy facilities, quiet location, friendly staff. Provided clean bath mats in the showers! Nice touch. Close to town. If you are taking Red Bus rebuild tour from the Museum I-site, parking for motorhomes available on Armagh St in North Hagley Park.

hard to believe this camp is on a busy road, as it was nice and quiet. great facilities, and the best shower I have ever had. ideal for a short stay. the kids enjoyed the play area - tampoline, roundabout, slide etc. didn't see inside the units, however the whole park was clean and looked very tidy

utilised this holiday park for our 5 night stay in the Christchurch area. Although in a busy suburb position and on a main artery into the City, we found the Proprietors to be exceptionally helpful with their advice and local knowledge. The park was very clean with a good number of facilities for the amount of pitches / camper sites... More

This site had great facilities, friendly staff, was a nice size and felt quiet and green given the city location. It's well placed for exploring and there's a cinema, shops and eating options all nearby. We'd definitely recommend.

this park is quiet and away from the noise of the traffic on the main road but still conveniently located within 2 minutes walking distance to shops and a 5 minute drive to the mall and restaurants. The staff are efficient and very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help you. We have stayed here on more... More
