The holiday park is situated on the Whanganui River bank and is easily accessed by car. The park has excellent facilities which were kept clean and fresh during our 3 day camping stay. Our site was large enough to easily fit our tent and car. We had not booked ahead and found the park's staff to be very helpful and... More

We found the site very tired. The bathroom needed a complete update. The hand basin In a corner was stainless steel, which reminded me of a gents toilet. On the plus side the fridge was full size, but the furniture was very tired.

Whanganui R, Owner at Whanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park, responded to this review

Hi Tina, I'm so sorry that you felt the accommodation you stayed in was not as modern as you hoped. We have owned this park for one year now and have been updating the fixtures and fittings and décor of the accommodation as quickly as we can. Obviously these things can not be completed overnight. If you had stayed in... More

The staff were very helpful, a great place to stay right on the banks of the river. Spotlessly clean. The pool was lovely and warm, a real luxury after a hard days sightseeing. The staff really helped me with my wifi. Also gave us great advise regarding the paddle boat trip.

Good facilities and a nice location next to the river. A little out of town in an average neighborhood, but not an issue if you have a car. Clean facilities, spacious sites, free showers and a good pool for the kids. Like other Top 10's in North Island we've been to, they have a great Internet deal. Get a site... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in our campervan and only have positive things to say. The site is beautifully landscaped in a nice setting beside the river, complete with an aviary, sheep, ducks, chickens snd even a goat. There's a good swimming pool, lounge and TV room and the facilities were clean and well-equipped. Best of all however were... More

Was very disappointed after travelling to Wanganui on Saturday, to find the room we had booked on the website (after carefully looking at pictures) was not available on arrival. We had booked a 4 berth kitchen unit after noting the picture had a double bed AND bunks. We were told the only one left was a room with only two... More

Stayed with the BMWOR for 3 nights. Enjoyed it very much - because of the heat after riding all day it was absolute bliss to hop into the cool pool. The area for breakfast lunch or dinner was beautifully sited in that it got the sun. Did enjoy the look onto the river from our cabin.

Hats off to Whanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park. We were one of a number staying at the Park right in front of the river . The pool was lovely, the facilities were excellent. Plenty for the kids to do and in spacious surroundings. Our BMW group chose well where we were to stay and would highly recommend to anyone.... More

A party of four, we stayed in two riverside self contained units. Being riverside I had expected the units to face the river rather than face the park. No soap provided, old curtains and vinyl so definitely has seen better days. Pros it was a nice quiet family site which helped as it was New Years Eve. New owners here... More
