We stayed in July 2014. The park had very basic amenities which were in the process of being upgraded at the time. The camp kitchen was not heated and freezing!!! The park is in a good location next to the Botanic Gardens. It is only a 10 minuate walk through the gardens to the Victorian District. Unfortunately the area is... More

Loved the room and its amenities. It was so neat, and the hosts are lovely. Thank you for looking out for us when we arrived late to Oamaru. Would definitely recommend to anyone travelling through Oamaru.

We were extremely impressed from booking in at the start to booking out at the end. Our reception was welcoming and informative. The grounds were well kept and our motel unit was spacious, clean and we'll appointed. The only possible criticism would be the lack of a carport in this narrow valley which may be prone to winter frosts. We... More

Very neat and tidy with hospitable people running it. Nice town. Good situation. Has all the basic amenities including good showers and hygenic and modern kitchen with appliances. Do not have a lot of experience of these sort of places but would be surprised if the top 10 Oamaru is not in the top part of holiday accommodation offerings.

Thank you for your review, glad to hear that you enjoyed the facilities that we have to offer. Regarding the TOP 10 discount , one of the terms and conditions is that you do not get your discount when you book through a third party site. ie booking.com, expedia, wotif etc. They do take a commission when you book that...

This is the perfect blend of events. The facility is clean, tidy, and well kept. It's the staff that puts it all together with their friendly greetings and super helpful pointers for things to do in and around Oamaru. It was this friendliness that made it easy to stay an extra day, learning of all the things to do. NOTE:... More

Very helpful staff here, good facilities with a heater in the shower area. My only criticism was that there was lots of hair in the wash sinks which I found off-putting. When its busy perhaps someone should check things are kept clean throughout the morning rush. Nice and close to town. Good size sights.

This is possibly the nicest campground we have stayed in this trip! To start with we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. The laundry is the loveliest I have ever seen in a campground - it made me want to do more laundry. The shower blocks are both immaculate. We showered in the 'old' one as it was closer... More
