Stayed here for night en route south, and facilities plus grounds average. Kitchen facility was one of best we saw out of the half dozen parks we stayed at, but grounds Could do with some work. Next time I will rather head to Tekapo than stay here again

We booked a "ensuite unit" room, with a set of bunks in the bedroom, and a double bed in lounge. It was small, but very well set up to make the most of the space and ideally suited to small families. I got off to a rocky start with the lady in the office, but after the first misunderstanding she... More

Hi Rebecca, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in one of our Ensuite units and that you found it well set out. Sorry to hear about the small glitch on arrival which I believe was caused by the terms and conditions that have been set by other booking sites. Thank you for the review, we hope to... More

We have been travelling around the South Island on a 10 day camper trip and Timaru s top 10 camp must be the best. Clean and all the extra touches. Flowers in the kitchen, heaters in the toilets and showers, tidy camping areas and nicely set out, polite staff. I can't say enough about it.

Timaru is a great place to stay. The Top 10 site was easy to find. Cabin very comfortable and good value for money. 20 / 25 minute walk to Caroline Bay. Great for swimming. Watch out for the little blue penguins which breed near the beach!Short drive to town. Very interesting 1930's buildings. Lovely parks and gardens. We had a... More

We stayed just one night in a 6 person cabin which was warm and cosy on a cold winter night, bunks and beds were comfy. Both the cabin and amenities block were super clean and the showers were really hot :) cabin had a small fridge, microwave and kettle no running water though. Would definitely stay again.

Great to see you enjoyed your stay. It sounds like you stayed in one of our Super Standard cabins, these are great for families or groups. Maybe next time you would like to try a Ensuite unit, these sleep 6 people as well and also have a bathroom and running water. Thank you for your review. More

Stayed here for one night during the holiday. Kids loved the park and jumping pillow. They allowed us a late check out which really helped with a young baby. The cabin was warm durin a chilly Timaru night. I must say though the double bed really would have to be the worst bed I have ever slept in :-( hubby... More

We stayed in a self-contained unit and it was nice and clean and suited our needs. The unit had plenty of space and the bed was relatively comfy. The unit was wheelchair accessible so the shower was all open to the bathroom, meaning the bathroom floor got covered in water after a shower, but this is the only thing we... More
