This site has great views across the bay which is its' biggest plus point. The site itself is a bit "tired" and mucky around the edges. The facilities are generally pretty good with ok showers but some of the cooker rings are extremely slow to heat, There is good access down a path to the pleasant town of Akaroa.

The views of Akaroa are amazing, some of the best in the world I have been told by travellers. The walk down to Akaroa is lovely and doesn't take long at all. Thanks for the review hope you are having a great holiday. More

Lovely quiet holiday park (it was the off-season so it's probably very busy in summer) with friendly staff. Good facilities, lovely views from our powered campervan site, and a short downhill walk to the little village.

Lovely view and facilities, cheers. Big spaces for all RV types. Kitchen, showers and toilets. A bit scary heading up to the holiday park in the RV but once inside the staff were so lovely. Got to cuddle with Suga the kitty and had a lovely stay.

We had the family cabin for the night. It was clean and tidy. The beds were all cosy, kids loved the novelty of the bunks. The bathroom/kitchen block was a short distance away, so not a big deal when Mr 4 needed a late night bathroom stop. Our only problem was trying to park our vehicle next to the cabin... More

The view is nothing short of fantastic. The staff very friendly and helpful. The ensuite cabin we rented was clean and very well outfitted. The only issue - this place would be incredible in the summer. Sadly we stayed there in the late autumn with a fairly heavy storm that went on all night. There was an easy 55 kph... More

Thankyou for your review. Akaroa is a beautiful place with winds getting up to some incredible speeds in the Banks Peninsula. Thankyou for letting us know about the window, the hinge had come loose at the top of the window frame probably due to our weather conditions which we have now tightened. If you had let us know your situation... More

Nice camping ground, great view. Set in Native bush with plenty of bird life. The camp looks over Akaroa town and harbour. The road up to the camp is just before you turn into Akaroa township on the left. The drive up to the camp is steep and windy so take care, drive slowly. However there is a walk way... More

Why this holiday park is a top10??? Expensive for a tent site with absolutely no privacy (cabin above, other tent sites too close and no separation between them). Facilities clean but not well-maintained. Kitchen too small for a top10 and with only old stuffs. No Free Unlimited Wifi.

As virgin campervanners, we reached this place very late on our very first night in New Zealand. Though the office was shut, a very nice and helpful lady saw us and checked us in super quickly and politely, knowing we were traveling with children. Even thought the office shuts, the gates to enter are always open. You can just park... More

Stayed for one night in a family unit. Very clean and had everything we needed including a heater for the cooler night and to top it off - amazing views over Akaroa harbour and a great little balcony. My daughter enjoyed the playground. Very quiet and peaceful.
