A Perfect place to stay. This would have to be the tidiest, cleanest holiday park we have ever stayed in, Being motor homers we have spent time in parks all over the country, so far this is by far the best. Owners were very friendly and helpful, camp is not overcrowded and all facilities are excellent. Not far from Westport... More

Seeing the park is named "seal colony" I did not expect to have to drive to a lookout & view the seals through binoculars. The park staff were great, facilities clean, very short stroll to the beach. Showers were not hot- more warmish.

We stayed for one night in a very large location for unpowered tents etc. it was so quiet and consequently relaxing. The facilities are excellent, all spotlessly clean & smelling beautiful which takes some doing when there are guests passing through constantly. The staff we met were so helpful & their advice was invaluable. We enjoyed the facilities so much... More

Two spacious bedrooms and a comfortable family area. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice location close to the beach and also close to where the fur seals are. Kitchen was well equipped and we had everything we needed.

The moment we arrived at this site we loved it! Great facilities which are very clean. Very friendly staff and the sea is approx. a... More

We stayed in a self-contained unit and were impressed by the quality of the accommodation. The beach is only a short walk away and I stayed there until I was cold taking photos. Beautiful grey sand. I loved the location, which is outside Westport. I must confess I wasn't aware of the seal colony. Despite the name, it's not next... More

We camped with our child plus two other tenting families for 6 nights from 9 Jan 2014 and we were extremely happy with everything. Large open space for camping, very clean facilities, great showers, fantastic kitchen, lovely friendly staff and an awesome beach just across the road. Many thanks we will return!

Stayed for one night in a self contained cabin. Perfect for a night for a family of four. Cabin was very clean, lovely and peaceful and reception staff were just lovely. Would definately recommend and stay here again. Many thanks :)

What a wonderful spot to camp for a week or more. The management were absolutely fantastic and extremely accommodating. The staff were very friendly, and wow, can they clean! The amenities were as clean as a 5 star hotel. They seemed to take great pride in their tranquil surround. A quiet, clean and spacious place to stay. The grounds were... More

I fail to understand some previous reviews but suggest maybe they are from the wealthy more accustomed to 5 start hotels than holiday parks. The Seal Colony Top 10 is set in beautiful landscaped grounds with lots of trees and shrubs and lots of excellent facilities. The new owners are an absolute delight and nothing is too much trouble for... More

I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We endeavour to make guest feel that our park is a home away from home. We do enjoy having a chat with our guests. With regards to the playground, there is a very good playground down the road. However we are looking at options for better play ground to be installed... More
