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.

Whenever I visit the west coast I always stay here whether it's just for a night or for a few days, The staff are always helpful and friendly and there's always is quite spacious so you don't feel cramped and the facilities are all kept very clean but compared to a few other holiday parks I've visited they do look...

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.

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

As with all top10 the place is top class however it is the beach across the road. With its black sand and tree root stroon beach it has a weird sort of gothic charm especially at first light. Ideal for that early morning wonder can be windy. An a ray of shells can be found buried for those who like... More

Friendly welcome and the sales pitch for the area made us wish we had longer to travel north up the coast as well as south. We parked in a site that had an ocean view which was beautiful....and you can walk across the road to the ocean. It would be AMAZING in summer. As with most top 10 parks, it... More

Traveling with two adult children can be tricky, finding clean convenient stops with a bit of privacy for all and no breaking the bank is our goal. The Holiday Park Top Tens as a whole are fine, meeting a few of the needs and allow us to spend alternate nights at better facilities. This campsite, drive up hotel, park your... More
