We stayed for one night on our travels around the South Island in September 2014. Park was large with plenty of grassy sites - it wasn't very busy that particular night. Bathroom facilities & kitchen were modern & clean. Westport itself didn't seem to offer anything of interest & park was out of town, so it was purely a stopover.... More

Room was very inexpensive for two but left a little to be desired in the comfy department, toilet access was through my friends room and hand basin was in the bedroom and the TV was so small you couldn't actually read the writing on it but we were only there one night and it had what we needed.

Excellent site with large pitches. Very clean facilities. The staff were very helpful and gave us lots of info about the local area. Really near the very beautiful beach, just had to walk across the road.

After booking on line I realised I should have done more home work. The motorcycle group I belong to again chose to try and use Top 10 Holiday Parks on our recent trip, this proved to be a decision which restricted our evening entertainment with Seal Colony park being some 15kms out of Westport (my fault entirely), with the choice...

I am glad you enjoyed our park. And yes we are the beach, but we are only 4.2Km from the centre of Westport (5 mins drive). We do have a local Resturant |Bar| Takeways|Bakery, 400 mtrs from the Park. Our park is out of the township, which is a nic quiet spot, with a lovely swimming beach close by. More

We stayed only one night in our motor home but were made very welcome by Chrissie who was very helpful and informative. Site was well maintained and spotlessly clean and we had a peaceful spacious plot. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We only stayed one night but were impressed with the place .. Our cabin basic and clean. Close to all amenities which were well lit and a delight to use, .. Beach across the road .. Would love to return some time soon.

Superb location, friendly welcome, clean and well organised facilities. Best place we've camped for a long time! Will recommend and hopefully be back. We came for the Buller Marathon but there is plenty to do in this area.

A beautiful park with excellent facilities just down the coast from Westport. The bathrooms are so clean and well equipped as are the kitchens. Nice position for our powered site and very helpful reception giving as all the local information needed. One of the best Top Ten holiday parks in my opinion.

Sincere thanks to Chrissy and your band of helpers for a fantastic stay with you all. You are to be congratulated on the cleanliness of the entire park, such a credit to you all. My husband and I have been in the tourist industry for over 50yrs and are still currently escorting tour groups to overseas destinations so cleanliness is... More
