We booked a cabin at this camping ground, and it was perfect for us. The accommodation was spacious with good cooking facilities. The location was a great base for the activities we'd booked in the area.

An easy to find site on State Highway 1and next to the railway line. Some noise from both but we only heard 1 goods train whilst we were there. The powered sites are in pairs screened by tall bushes. The check-in at reception was easy and friendly. The site is a short way into Kaikoura with some shops, restaurants, cafes... More

Great facilities, pool, playground good for older kids too. Close to town and restaurants. Awesome kitchen and laundry facilities. Just a hop over the railway line to whale watch, and beach. Definitely returning to explore more of Kaikoura.

We stayed in several of the Top 10 group of campsites whilst touring New Zealand in a camper van. This, like all of the others, was absolutely pristine. Reception staff were extremely helpful and the site was in a great location, with restaurants just across the road and the Whale Watching station only a short way up the road. The... More

An amazing place in an amazing town! Wi-Fi doesn't work great but it doesn't work great at any place you stay in the entire country of New Zealand we found out. Heated pool and playground for the kids enough said everyone was happy.

What a GREAT room, the space was fantastic, the noise never bothered us, 50+ channels on sky, awesome for amusing small people, comfortable beds and the facilities also great for the kids, with pool and playground. Also great walking distance to town. Was on expensive side to what I would normally pay (256) for 5 of us, but i think... More

I stayed here for one night, the playgroung was great, kids can play there for hours including the big pillow-trampoline and an interactive game. This camping is full of trees and bushes so it is nice, however it's located just next to the railroad... Omg trains at night, hard to survive. The showers are free, hair-dryers only in womens' bathrooms... More

The camping is well kept and close to main places around town but is beside to railway station and therefore noisy during the night. We counted 5 trains passing by during the night and we could not sleep well. We took a family cabin and was pretty expensive. For the same price you can get much better in a B&B... More

Like every thing in New Zealand these places are way way too expensive. $40 - 50 nzd to park a van for the evening, with power. Plus additional for internet, $5 per hour of $7 per day. Also in some of these places it is extra for the shower. Of course washing machines are extra, dryers can be $4 a... More

The holiday park requires you to make 100% credit card payment when you make a booking. For holders of non-NZ credit card, it means you will suffer exchange and admin loss if you wish to change or cancel booking. My family of 3 adults was given a room without private bath room. We were not familiar with their facilities when... More

This booking was made directly through Booking .Com The site clearly states that the room had no bathroom or kitchen and that full payment was required at time of booking We have a sign in the communal kitchen advising that cooking utensils are available for hire This review reflects a communication problem and lack of understanding of what was booked...
