We were a group of 9: we had one camper site and a cabin. This is sadly one of the few reviews I am not happy to write. We stayed two nights and they were enjoyable for the most part. The campgrounds were beautiful; we paid for an elevated site with a view, had we taken a site in the... More

Options for where to park and 'up top' has beautiful views. Good kitchen facilities, showers etc. Well maintained facilities and grounds and it was great to be able to park the motorhome and walk into Russell for a meal and back again. Loved the wekas in the bush surrounding the park.

I'll admit it - I am a bit of a snob, and was wary about staying in a Holiday Park (something I would never do in the US!) But when we found ourselves rolling into Russell during peak season without rezzies, we didn't have much choice. What a pleasant surprise! The entire facility is absolutely beautifully maintained. The location is... More

Parallel parking meant the whole length of our camper had views. We loved seeing the ships coming and going and the sunset over the hills. We moved from one spot to a shadier one and the staff happily obliged. A short walk to the village and wharf.

Our First trip up past Auckland, loved it..

We stayed here last night (30/1) in our rented Britz mobile home. The whole Park is lovely. Bathrooms, toilets and laundry are spotless. Staff were very helpful and friendly. One downer for me was no mobile telephone connection, but that is not the Parks fault. The town is very pretty. We would stay here again.

We hired a modern family unit so enjoyed plenty of lounge and kitchen space. The sea view was from the lounge and bedroom and it filled the window looking west to beautiful sunsets. The deck doesn't have a sea view like the other motel units but the trade off is that it is secluded by shrubs and you can be... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a lodge with a kitchenette. Slight criticism is that the lodges are not detached and ours was one of 4 in a terrace, so your stay will be in the hands of your neighbours depending how noisy they are although we didn't have any major problems. The entrance to the 4 lodges is... More

We stayed here for two nights - sadly in dreadful weather - but owner, Bonnie, could not do enough to help us make the most of our stay. The facilities are great and, when it's not raining, there are great views over the bay. Would love to go back when the sun is shining!

We only stayed for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Location- very easy walking distance into Russell. Beautiful views over the bay from our cabin. Cabin- perfectly adequate for our needs with parking adjacent. Very important to us as we had heavy luggage. Importantly the cabin was spotlessly clean. People- the staff were very friendly and helpful... More
