We stayed two nights at the site just prior to Easter. The cabin was modern and clean with ample space for two. The pool was welcoming and enjoyable with towels supplied. Slightly more expensive but worth it. A good camp with nice staff.

What a great place. We stayed for one night in one of there single room cabins. It was a very comfortable stay and wish we had booked longer. Rooms were clean and tidy with every thing available to be self sufficient without having to travel for food. Pools were lovely and clean with plenty of room to find an area... More

We recently enjoyed a one night stay at the Miranda Holiday Park in a 1 bedroom chalet. Feedback: Very clean, nice linen and wonderful pillows. A comfy couch and enough seating for 4, with an outdoor table and chairs. The holiday park has its own large hot pool, separate to the adjacent main complex. Hamburgers from next door (a 2... More

This was a perfectly OK place to stay for a short while, we had a studio unit which we found a bit cramped. It was clean, we had the necessities, and the main plus for us was the closeness to the Shorebird Centre where we saw plenty of Wrybill. The shop sells a few items, hot food is available next...

Very pleasant staff there. 2) Really nice, large grassy camp sites - especially the one's out the back which is where we stayed 3) Very clean & tidy facilities 4) The hot pool is large so... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our park, we like to do our best to stay on top of things, and welcome your comments. When we are informed of campers being too noisy we do ask them to quieten down particularly after 10pm as stated on our information sheets handed to our guests on arrival. . We are... More

we stayed here for our last night in New Zealand following a month long stay and it really is a well run place. Everything is very organized. The shop has everyday food items and wine. There were go karts for the children to ride around on. It has its own hot pool and there is a good tennis court. loved... More

We stayed here a couple of nights. This is a very good clean unit, well equipped with the exception of no hot plates in the studio rooms but an electric frypan and microwave. The rooms a modern, beds are very good and layout, TV, couch, table are all standard motel layout. Deck with table and chairs on front and free... More

The Miranda Holiday park offers a variety of accommodation - we had a Studio for 3 nights. This is a fully equipped self-contained unit; more expensive than their chalets, and similar but smaller than the one or two bedroom units. We found it had everything we needed, and I was pleased to find a fan in the room to leave... More

We stayed here for two nights while our family were camping nearby in a regional park so we were only using it as a base to return to at night. The holiday park has the usual range of options from sites for tents or motor homes to motel-style units. The tent sites looked rather spartan with very little shade. Reception... More
