Most expensive camper van site we used in the north island and the worst.Muddy uneven site,overlooking overgrown paddock.Toilet and shower had doors that wouldn't shut, so in came rain and wind,there was no dry area to put anything. Won't be coming back.

No stars worth. We really were very dissapointed by this accomodation, and no words for the rude and unfriendly staff in the evening! At 8 pm no water available in the studio we rented and the only comment we got: use an other shower. That's not why we took the self-contained studio! At dawn we left and we'll never return,...

The landscape is beautiful and the staff lovely at Solscape, but for the price of the Tipis and the state of them, they were less than adequate. Being further away from the rest of the camp didnt bother us, it was the fact that for $80 a night, we were moreorless staying under a tarpolen - there was dirt and... More

Let's spend as less money as we can on our camp site, call it eco and ask as much money as we can. The only eco on this site are the 3 bins to select your dust. And finally there was no water, the answer we got at the reception, sorry we're closed. Awefull place!!!!

Solscape is a beautiful place - hostel with camping ground with small huts built from old wagon .. it might look like a train station. I like this place because it is just five minutes drive or 15 min walking from Raglan surf break, on of the best left-hander in the world. It is quite far from Raglan city, about... More

We booked to stay in a caboose but on arrival and unpacking our bags we had to make the decision that the caboose would not suit us at all as it had no ventilation and was stifling in the hot weather we've been having. I can't see how they can justify the price they charge for a caboose carriage that... More

While the entrance to Solscape is beautiful, and the staff are super friendly unfortunately the Tipi area leaves a lot to be desired. For the rates that they are charging the Tipi area could be SO much more that it is, as there is lots of potential for the unkept area nestled in the back of the property. We felt... More

Such an amazing location, however unfortunately the staff were rude on several occasions. After staying in backpackers and eco friendly accommodation across the world I expected more from the staff at solscape. The view is amazing and the atmosphere is relaxing, unfortunately the staff really let us down.

Upon arrival we were quite impressed with the view over the Raglan beach, the tranquil setting and the polite and helpful staff. We were looking forward to 2 nights stay. We were booked into a tipi, which turned out to be a bit of a walk from the car park (about 5 to 10 minutes, with a muddy steep hills).... More

The place looks nice if you are staying in one of their cabins but not great for camping. We were in a self contained camper van and charged 34 dollars for two people to park in a cramped spot. The following day when we asked if we could fill up our water tank we were told that they did not... More
