Very convenient location to central Nelson. Easy Walk to town and supermarkets. friendly staff. Was a very cold night when we got there and room was cold and it took the blow heater ages to heat room.

I have just returned from a walk to the supermarket and city shops - all about 2k from the park. This is not a spot you would stay at for beach access but absolutely ideal for city and hospital access. The facilities are spotlessly clean and the staff very helpful. The park is small but well equipped with level van... More

We found the park to be very clean and had such a friendly atmosphere, great facilities and so clean. Ease of access to powered sites and amenities is a definite plus, an easy stroll to the Nelson Markets on Saturday was a bonus. Would come back again and will recommend to fellow caravaners.

This was our second stay in Nelson and we did not even contemplate going elsewhere than the Nelson City Holiday Park. It is a relatively small park, but close to the city and roomy parking lots for motorhomes. The facilities are clean and you get a warm welcome.

I wish I had stayed more than one night. Campervan parks were just the right size and had good privacy. Facilities were sparkly clean and the showers were lovely and hot. There was a bit of a walk into town but good to have a leg stretch after a long drive. Only gripe was internet/wi-fi facility was only available for... More

Fair site. Spoilt by the inappropriate location of the dump station. The site is in two halves, separated by a bridge over a creek. The power sites across the bridge each have their own dump station. However, the shared dump station has been sited so that people have to park on the bridge to use it and nobody else can... More

Great location, if a bit noisy from traffic. Can't beat the price or location, though! It's located really great on the harbour with easy access to the Interisland ferry and the other ferries. 10 min walk to New World shopping mart and close to shopping and bar streets. The facilities worked rather well, and we were quite happy with our... More

We stayed 2 nights in our camper recently. The hosts are very friendly and helpful; camp very clean, with more than adequate facilities. The sites are large and private - some seemed a bit tricky to manipulate into but not too much of a problem really. Being close to the city centre was a bonus. Also, it was extremely quiet... More

Nice little holiday park in a 23 minutes walk proximity from the city centre. Toilets and showers are clean, no money needed to shower. Internet is there with IKS only. Nice playground and trampoline for children. Trampoline is damaged in the entrance area of the floor so better attend your child. 2 BBQs are provided but they are not well... More

This is to thank the lovely staff of Nelson City Holiday Park! Our camper-van broke down on the 24th of December and we were stuck in Nelson until the 26th. The facilities are clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful and understanding.
