Stayed in our camper van for a couple of nights whilst travelling around. Lovely place about 5 minute walk from town centre with plenty of food and drink places on the way. Had been raining when we arrived so they allocated us a hard stand. Toilet and shower block very clean. Very helpful staff. Thanks

Had such a wonderful stay in the Top Ten in Kaikoura. We stayed in the Ensuite Unit and it was beautiful. We were extremely surprised at the modern interior the unit had, it practically looks brand new. Really lovely bedding and furniture made us feel as though we were staying luxury as apposed to cabins. Internet was great, bathroom impeccable,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our large motorhome. The park was modern, well kept, great playground/jumping pillow for the kids & had a games room. Heaps of room for the kids to run around. Hint - There are also showers/toilets in the games room block if the others are occupied. What we liked best was that the grassy... More

This is one of the easiest campsites to find, with lots within walking distance. Adequate but not enormous pitches, but our van wasn't too big so that didn't matter. The location is the main thing, with views every which way. We did go whale watching, and saw a sperm whale, so that added to our enjoyment. We went on one... More

We stayed here with our camper van. The park staff are very helpful and accommodating. We particularly loved this park because of the facilities for kids, our toddler loved playing on the playground and the big bouncy pillow.

We had a lovely separate unit at the Kaikoura Top 10 Holiday Park. It was very large and clean, with an excellent interior. The walls seemed thick enough, because we weren't bothered too much by the sounds on the roads at night. We could leave our car right in front of the door due to the park's great location -... More

The best playground out of all the parks we stayed at. The kids literally played for hours on the light up thingy (haha, sorry no idea what it would be called!), was great for us to have a nice safe place to go and play and get them out from under our feet (in a camper) for a while. They... More

A welcoming crew and a really pleasant place to park one's Motorhome. The facilites were great - clean and well maintained. An easy walk to the township ready to be explored, great restaurant at the gate, and the view of the 'Kaikoura's' from my bed was stunning! Really at the hub of many opportunites for great adventures.

Hot tub was great on a very rainy day, with nothing much to do. Tv room nice cosy and warm. Deluxe room was great, only shame it did not have a sink. I would stay again. Nice and close to amenities. Rooms nice and warm. Staff very friendly.

While part of the Kaikoura Top 10 Holiday Park, the villa is situated on The Esplanade in Kaikoura - step across the road and your on the beach front. A lovingly restored villa that's a bit pricey by our standards, but what's a little extravagance every now and then. Easy walk to Kaikoura's town centre one way or The Pier... More
