We had a great stay, location is convenient, close to town and a few minutes walk to the beach. The holiday park itself is nice, with a great spa pool and very friendly people at the reception. The units are nice, separated from other units, and the furniture is well maintained. A little bit noisy because the holiday park is... More

We just booked a one night in a cabin. Pretty small with just a bed & a table in it, however it wasn't too much of a problem for one night as we were only passing through. Reasonably expensive at $80 (own bedding supplied). No real complaints-the cabin was clean & tidy, bed comfy, the facilities good, and location suited... More

Jan & Barry Parsonage (UK) stayed here in Feb 2014 and were very impressed with the help with local excursions given by the staff. Motel room very comfortable and good facilities. Convenient location for fantastic whale watching cruise.

This was our first Top-10 stay, so we didn't have much to compare it to. The location is good. Be aware that a train track is right beside the park, however it never disturbed us. Beach access is difficult because you have to go a long ways around to get to a safe place to cross the tracks. Also, be... More

Thank you for your feedback. Glad to hear you were happy with our location. The first access to the beach, without crossing any tracks is a left out of our Park and less than 100 metres. It is a lovely beach for a walk with great views out across the Pacific ocean and with a stunning mountain backdrop. For swimming... More

Heart sank somewhat as I drove into another not immediately appealing Top 10 site with sometimes noisy railway blocking access to beach on one side and State Highway on the other. However, the pitch for our motorhome was much larger than we had resigned ourselves to, given a fortnight touring South Island. Nice views back towards hills. Also on the... More

Thank you for your feedback – we appreciate all opinions and take them onboard. Beach access is a quick walk out of our Park and past the Whale Watch building, just a couple of minutes. We’d love to have direct access but this is not currently possible. It is good to hear you were happy with the size of your... More

Had 2 nights here, which bearing in mind the cost being higher than other 'Top 10s' at $48 per night was a bit costly, but of course you are paying for the location and in fairness it is ideally placed for the town and whale watching. They do have a fabulous well equipped and large kitchen come dining area, and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Park. We take a lot of consideration into our pricing to and we constantly review our prices to ensure we are fair.

Only stayed here one night but it is an excellent site, well situated near a lovely beach. The staff were very friendly and helpful, recommending two local restaurants. A quiet site, too far to walk into town, but otherwise, excellent. The nearby bar/restaurant was good value for an evening meal, basically pub grub.

Hi there, Thanks so much for taking the time to give us such great feedback :) We are a 300 metre walk to the town centre, but perhaps you are referring to the other end of town, heading to New World supermarket - this is a longer walk, 15 minutes or so :) Thanks again. More

This campervan park is clean, with a nice kitchen, and good facilities. The location is close to Kaikora town centre, which is very nice and the beach also is nearby. However, it is adjacent to the railroad tracks, which can be quite loud at night.

Kaikura is a popular first stop for campervans from Christchurch. The Top10 is fine - nothing terribly exciting. They have a big jumping pillow for the little ones and they are right across the street from a beautiful beach.

Hi there, Thanks for the feedback – excellent to hear the little ones enjoyed our playground. In April we have an extension coming to playground – a new swing set, as we had guest recommendations to add these and so we have, and an exciting new interactive game, fun for the whole family. More

Good basic facilities but naff location sandwiched between railway (stops you getting to beach and whale watch building) and main road (noisy all night). If ever stay in Kaikoura again will stay in fat nicer end up towards walkways where there are good restaurants

Hi there. Unfortunately, the railway does run near to our park and all other accommodation along Beach Road in Kaikoura. This issue can't be helped on our part but it is a trade off for our great, central location - a quick walk to the town centre, to the ocean, to Whale Watch Kaikoura and to great restaurants just 300...
