We've stayed here three times and we love it. Friendly people, nice place, great to just sit and watch the river amble by. Comfy bed - not the usual motel slab of rock. Friendly cat (and chicken). The motel unit was everything you'd want - clean, nice view of river, warm.

This is a lovely site on the banks of the river about a 10 minute drive from the town centre. We stayed in a 2 bed deluxe motel which was plenty big enough for our family of 4. It was very well equipped with a large double shower and kitchen with everything you could need. The beds were very comfy... More

Awesome staff, clean, tidy units. We arrived in Whanganui and headed to find accommodation as we had not booked anywhere. As a new member of Top 10 we thought we could check it out. The owner met us and welcomed us. As he showed us to 2 choices of units we chatted with him about the devastation from the flooding.... More

We got to the top ten after a bad experience at another site in town , made us feel very safe. Had a lovely night by the fire , the kitchen facilities were great , we enjoyed some fresh eggs (from their free ranging chickens) in the morning. Loads of toilets and showers- very clean. The location is a bit... More

Like all Top 10 parks was very clean, tidy and well laid out with good facilities.Would not say it was expensive as it was $6 cheaper than previous Top 10 camp we stayed in and you get value for money. Small shop for basics. Great riverside view especially when the paddle steamer goes past. (Highly recommended boat trip).Small aviary and... More

Expensive but the best Top10 in NZ. We finally spend 2 nights in this Holiday Park because it was really confortable. Large tent site so even without separation between them, you have your privacy. Table near our tent site with roof and plug : excellent idea ! Bathroom and kitchen not really large but just enough for everybody, clean and... More

Its in a nice quiet spot next to river and clean and close enough to the town to walk if you like to keep fit. I dont really have anything bad to say about this place , however i do feel sorry for the tethered goat , it must be boring for him alone like that and not really kind... More

From start to finish we had non stop fun at this wonderful establishment! My 12 year old son was in heaven, not once did he ask for his laptop, phone or tablet which was surprising. The owners were very hospitable, nothing was a problem, the heated swimming pool is like a giant spa pool but with a slide! There are... More

Attractive site with plenty of play areas for children and motels/cabins set out well for privacy. Very friendly and helpful staff who were quick to attend to any queries and were obviously trying hard to please everyone and make their stay as pleasant as possible.

Hi Kevin. I am so sorry that you have had an unpleasant experience. Unfortunately when you booked through Expedia their system had an error and booked you into a Kitchen Cabin at our holiday park that was not available. We have been fully booked for Easter weekend for some time now. (We have raised this issue with Expedia who I... More
