We stayed here only because they had availability and we needed a powered site whilst waiting for the delivery of a replacement (working) key for our campervan (don't ask) $11-20 but charged $20 and $5 for the power, no pricing structure visible so not sure why the top end ... maybe we looked gullible or rich? The toilet and shower... More

We stayed here 5 years ago in a room with kitchen and bathroom at the front of the area. Clean and tidy we thought we would stop here again. This time we stayed in cabin number 7 at the back. A main room with a table, seats , sink, a double bed with bunk over the top. (The one you... More

I stayed here as one of a family of four adults for two nights. The accommodation isn't flashy, but the rooms we had were well maintained and generally pretty comfortable. Represents good value for money and is a good gateway into the township.

Run down and shabby, and we should really ask for our money back, avoid it at all costs unless you are in a tent or camper van. No net curtains, no phone, wi fi and tv not working. The only good point is that it was easy to find and close to the town center.

Stayed here for one night - wish we hadn't. Paid $66 for a cabin and it was disgusting, we've paid much less in other places and got so so much better. Carpet was patchy and had holes in, bedding looked questionable and the whole room looked as if it hadn't been dusted/hoovered in years. Walls were painted black and paint... More

Tent sites are down by the river on grass area, bit noisy with road traffic and train noise but not unbearable and many places in Kaikoura are near the road. Toilets and showers okay, not well maintained but clean enough. Free wifi available. Fine for one night if you can't make it to the nearby coastal camps or they are... More

I feel bad posting a bad review but this was a dreadful stay! The room was so musty, the smell hit you as soon as you opened the door. Only one set of windows in whole unit - at front - meant no air flow through room. Latch on one window completely broken. Bed saggy. Mattress stained and torn. Bed... More
