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

We stayed here in November. It's a good base for hobbits but that's it. We were in a camper van. The shower facilities are basic at best. The kitchens are the same and the TV room was well worn. The swimming pools were like something out of the 80's it appeared that dated and run down, desperately in need of... More

We only stayed here one night, but the managers were helpful, the rooms clean and neat, and the area beautiful. It was a quick and easy drive to Hobbiton too, which was mainly what we were looking for!

Went to the Opal Hot Spings Holiday Park for the first time ( Dec 2014) with my family . The pools were old and needing of some serious capital injection. Nothing to rave about. Camp facilities are below average compared to other camp grounds we have stayed in. The kitchen cabin we stayed in was clean and presentable . Showers... More

Clean and tidy enough 'motel' unit; no view, no access outside to sit in the sun other than via the back door and into the carport. Shower dribbly, had to do repairs on toilet cistern to stop it running all night, neither spa was operational, only one private pool operating, shower at main pool had no head, pools and surrounds...

My son and I stayed here for one night prior to visiting the Hobbiton Movie Set Tour. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. The park was clean and quiet with varying levels of accommodation. We stayed in a powered camper van site and the tariff was reasonable. We were only a 15 minute drive from the Hobbiton Movie Set...
