Very friendly people operating this site, they gave some insight into good things to do in the area and other info packs. The site itself was nicely set up, all amenities were close by - the kitchen in particular was impressive. Highly recommend this site!

Stayed for one night and it is a typical NZ motorhome park, the site is out of town and close to the beach and is quiet and the family showers whilst at one end of the park were clean and there was plenty of hot water. Can't comment on the units as we stayed in a powered site.

Stayed at the Seal Colony Top 10 Holiday Park, Carters Beach Westport. The town of Westport is just 3km away. This camp is a great base for exploring the upper West Coast. This area has a lot of coal mines, some of which are on a high plateau giving stunning views of the coast. This camp is up to the... More

We stayed her for 2 nights in a cabin and it was fabulous. Nice and clean, lots of blankets, friendly and knowledgeable staff, well stocked clean kitchen. We really enjoyed our stay. Right across the road from the beach and a short drive away from the Cape Foulwind lighthouse and seal colony

Stayed one night in cabin accommodation. Fairly basic but comfortable. Reasonable facilities. Helpful staff, especially as I had booked wrong night. Manager also helpful by contacting next night's accommodation to change our booking.

We are happy that Carl was able to ring around all of your forward booking to re book your stays. Our Self-Contained Cabins are at the top end of the three different cabins available in the park. These do have a shower toilet, kitchen, and all beds made up with nice bedding. We are installing LED 42" TV's in the... More

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.
