5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed in one the studios, except the built-in heater was broken, everything else was pretty good. Sits in a great location, good for going a walk along the beach, big compound, nice and clean, my 9 year-old said it's the best so far.

We were most impressed with the studio unit that we stayed in at the Kaikoura Top 10 Holiday Park. It was a clean and cosy, little unit, had everything we needed. And it was over the road from the best trip Advisor rated seafood restaurant. Pity it was only for one night,

I stayed here for 2 nights in March on a powered site. I booked online and requested a particular pitch (this was stated on their website that you could).

This site is situated adjacent to the main highway and although you can expect some traffic noise it is an easy place to find at the end of a tiring day ! There are restaurants close by and shops. It is also handy for the whale watching trips and helicopter rides. It is also close to the train station. I... More

Unfortunately this is the dirtiest top10 we have stayed in, and we've been to loads, we are used to camping but the toilets and showers near the conference room were filthy, there was dirty nappies on the floor in the toilet, over flowing bins, and the toilets and floor weren't great either. The showers were hot though. Some camping spots... More
