Used more to RVing in Europe, USA, Canada, RSA , I find myself giving very favourable reviews to all the sites here in NZ and maybe those critical of sites such as this excellent little stop - over need to have the comparisons of your typical park in France or Italy where for the privilege of paying often significantly more...

Great place to base yourself for a quick trip to Nelson to visit the huge amount of arts and crafts gallery's etc. in the area. The studio motel was lovely and clean and the beds were comfy and warm. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It is pretty close to the city which is great but we did hire... More

Stayed in a tent for one night (44 NZD/night). Wouldn't recommended staying here: tent site is way to small, community kitchen and TV room are tiny as well. Toilettes and showers are OK but the staff was stressed and unfriendly.

I stayed here with my partner and 2 kids for 2 nights. We got the "kitchen cabin" for $90 a night. Definitely not worth the money. No where on trip advisor, the hotel website or the booking website did it mention anything about a shared bathroom. So just a heads up if your booking this room. We also had to... More

My partner and I stayed in a kitchen cabin for 4 nights. Room was very comfortable and clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Bathrooms, toilets are nice and clean.i think there is wifi available in the common room and it costs maybe $5 per day but we haven't used it. I would recommend this place.

Clean room and ablution block, good cooking facilities but need to bring own pans and cutlery. Nice outdoor seating area. Our cabin was right behind the playground and overlooked the backpackers next door, so somewhat noisy, but otherwise comfortable. Fairly central to town, but would still require a car.

small campsite situated close to city centre. Spotlessly clean. Good facilities - washrooms, laundry, kitchen. Washrooms have hair dryers which is a big bonus. Good wifi. Worth booking in advance as the site was full at about 6pm. Very friendly.

Anybody looking at using one of these non powered camping sites may wish to think again. They charged me $44 for a non powered camp site for one person using a one person tent. This is the same price as the charge for two people in a campervan using a powered site with wasre disposal thrown in. Seems unreasonable to... More

Spent three nights here in our camper with my boyfriend. Facilities were good. The wifi was the best we have had in these holiday parks all over the north island and costs $5 for 24hours. The kitchen is small like the park itself but has everything you need. Bathrooms are clean. Location is excellent, really near the city. Staff really... More

Rooms are nice and tidy, with kitchen and everything you need, but can get a bit crowded with a family of four. Close to the city center, though getting to the beach requires a 5-10 minute drive due to traffic flow. Only the first 30 minutes of wifi are free, but you can buy a 24h voucher for $5.
