“Lovely family getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is a great family holiday park we stayed in a 3bedroom cabin to the side of the pool area it was clean tidy and comfortable for our 2day stay. Our kids throughly enjoyed patting the guinea pigs and all the other animals around the park. The staff are very helpful and pleasant too. Highly recommend this to any family after a nice break away.

Just got back from a very enjoyable stay at the Maketu Hilltop Holiday Park. We camped adjacent to the swimming pool, which was a handy spot and close to the kitchen/laundry/lounge/toilets and showers. We had a walk around the park and would have been just as pleased with a pitch up the other end. In fact, if you wanted shade the other end is probably a better spot. There is plenty for young children to keep themselves amused such as a playground, soccer pitch, volleyball net, ping pong room and animals to pat (we came across two horses, a Boston Terrier dog (roamed happily around the park and very friendly), cat and rabbits). Mini golf was a work in progress so this wasn't possible during our visit. The pool was pretty good, with a nice shade above the shallower end. When we were there the poolside looked a little untidy but didn't spoil our enjoyment. The water could have been a little clearer.
The owners seemed friendly and easy going. The campsite has wifi and we were kindly given this free of charge as someone had previously purchased too many cards. The park is very well laid out and has a very pleasant feel to it and quite peaceful. There was little noise from the adjacent road.
The shower I had was just about adequate. The water pressure was not what you would call powerful but it was plenty hot enough. The solar powered showers are free of charge.
We would be very happy to stay here again. Next time we'd like to try one of the units.

We stopped in here for one night on our down the line to spend the holidays with family. What a lovely hidden treasure. We booked a motel room and a cabin. The motel room was excellent, apart from an ant problem, which I'm sure we contributed to. The grounds and facilities are superb. The pool very refreshing. Also the ponies in the end paddock are a friendly addition. The kids loved the rabbit hutch and would have slept in it if allowed!. Thanks for a wonderful stop over.

We had a great three day stay here early in the year in a cabin with three adults and two children. The children were thrilled to be sleeping in the top bunks as the beds had rails on with no threat of the children falling out (restless sleepers). Very friendly park and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Great facilities and lots for the children to do, they loved the swimming pool and the playground (also the ponies). We had originally booked a camping site in January but cancelled because the weather was appalling at that time. I later booked the cabin and was only charged the difference between the camp site and the cabin (nothing deducted for the earlier cancellation although I had already paid). Can't wait to stay there again. Audrey
