This was a fine place to stay, reasonable value for money. It had all the facilities we wanted, but could do with a lick of paint. Pleasant grassy areas with trees, and a lovely view across the lake of the mountains in the morning. Leave yourself time to enjoy the hot mineral pools which were a highlight (but have cold... More

We stayed here for 4weeks in our caravan, 2 adults 2 children and a cat. The facilities were cleaned daily by friendly local ladies. The price was good and we had full use of the heated pools. The owner George had a tok tok for getting around the grounds and the kids got to have a ride which they loved.... More

This is a very, tired and shabby resort. It was ill equipped, in great need of paint and upkeep and the facilities were dirty and unhygienic. It was expensive because of its location and a disappointing resort for even a short stay.

This is a very old, tired holiday park. The amenities are just not up to scratch. I stayed in a full hotel room which was well equipped, but old furniture with missing knobs, flies everywhere, and worse of all...the hot water is full of rust so I couldnt even shower. The staff is friendly and helpful and access is given... More

The site itself was fine. I have no complaints about the park and nothing to rave about - apart from the amazing view of the stars we had on the night we stayed in a powered site. Was good value for money.

Hired the ramaroa private pool for our whanau, reminds me of the tombraider movie ive been here a few times and will keep coming back if the... More

We came to this site at the last minute after a change of plan. At check in the staff were friendly and helpful dealing with us quickly and efficiently. We were given a camping spot down the slope to the right located by the pool area and a few chalets which backed onto the river. The spot was great and... More

Had heard that the Opal springs hot pool was worth a visit. Unfortunately the visit was disappointing. The facilities are in need of a serious upgrade. We chose to go in the chlorinated pool only as I did not trust the cleanliness of the hot pools. The shower blocks smelt as if they hadn't been cleaned in some time. I... More

convenient place to stay for a visit to hobbiton. Friendly staff but can this make up for the dirty amenities, the pool which was unclean and the $5 fee for use of the BBQ.? Only just. If there was somewhere else to stay I would investigate that first. Time and money must be spent at this place before I could... More

Site was easy to find, but is about 7km out of Matamata, with no other facilities outside the site. Grass site for camper vans was damp and rutted after heavy rain the previous day. We were told we could park where we liked. The road part of the site had several pot-holes which had rain in them. You needed to... More
