We stayed at the powered site with our motorhome while driving down to Queenstown. This place offers a great shower facilities, besides it be paid (NZ 2.00 for 10 min), shower was good, water was hot e bathroom was incredible warm (even more if you consider that it was -2 outside). Their kitchen is well prepared, but it has room... More

Our first campervan outing and the check-in process was straight forward. We had the dag with us so were clustered with other dog owners. Fantastic lake view with some snow on the mountains. The weather was great so was a cruisy start to our holiday. Stayed 2 nights.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights. The view was beautiful! We paid $280 and I found this a bit steep as this did not offer wifi or sky but I wasn't that big of a deal. The bathroom was a bit small. The duvets on the bed was very comfortable and warm. Overall was a great stay... More

We were very disappointed with this motel and our room it seems that they are counting on there location only as there prime asset which is absolutely fabulous can't argue with that. however there accommodation standard is a lot to be desired. Our room was very old and desperately needed TLC. The roof in main area was very badly cracked... More

We stayed in the motel part. We turned up late, so collected key from outside office. This was all fine. When we got to the room it was freezing cold and took a good half an hour to warm up, not so very welcoming. The room was lovely, but the bathroom a bit squashed and average. Also freezing cold, and... More

We stayed in a two bedroomed unit called number one cabin and it was called that for a reason - the views are amazing (when it's not foggy). The unit was spotlessly clean, the beds are really comfortable and the heating works well. This is an old unit that they have done up to some degree. The bathroom is still... More

Fantastic location, just off the main drag. Very quiet with amazing views from my cabin. Very clean and functional. Although very popular and busy it was nice and quiet when I stayed in April 2015. Great place to relax and recharge. Checking in was quick and easy all the staff I met were very helpful and friendly with some great... More

This is a great location with stunning views and you've got a captive market. With the price you're charging for campsites, it really is time to spend some money doing up the older ablution block. The showers are a disgrace. Glad there's a coffee cart though.

This was the second time myself and my boyfriend have stayed here and each time we are more than ready to leave after one night. The view and the location are perfect but thats pretty much as good as it gets. As there is no other camp grounds in the area, the rates are expensive and the management can get... More

To be honest, I was a dissappointed, we stayed in one of the motel rooms (#5) which is about $160 a night, not cheap. The bed was only a queen size, and not comfortable to me. The sheets while warm (we went in winter) were quite noisy, every time I turned or my partner turned, we woke eachother up. We... More
