This is one of the best Top10 locations in New Zealand. It is a stone throw to the beach and Kaikoura town. Very friendly staff, great spa. However we had small problem with the cleaning staff not doing a great job. Otherwise a nice place to stay.

The reception was very friendly and helpful, room was very clean. good location close to restaurants and bars. It was a bit noisey at night with trucks going through the main road and the odd train. would stay there again.

First the positives - friendly reception, noting child on board put us near the playground, nice facilities, great camp kitchen, nice BBQs, close to town (easy to walk), really great little playground with one electronic gaming thing that even the adults enjoy... The negatives - firstly the cost - which was $10 more than most places we stayed and $20... More

Great location, very friendly service. Warm, dry, perfect facilities for winter sports, i.e the spa!! Thought it was a shame it wasn't communal as it would be fun to share stories etc as a solo traveller but no complaints really. I found there was a lot of overpriced accommodation in Kaikoura, and thought the ensuite cabin was great value. Wished... More

I stayed here with my eleven year old daughter for a girly weekend and to meet up with some relatives. We called ahead of time and spoke to a very friendly and helpful gentleman. On arrival we met the same cherry character who just made things great. Straight away when he realised I was 1 adult and 1 child he... More

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
