Our family rented a "motel" room at Waiteti Trout Stream Holiday Park for two nights and had the most horrific experience that we need to warn others not to stay here!

Apart from the rooms being shabby, the owners were nosy, rude and "banned" one of our family members from the site for being "cheeky" to her. They monitor the amount of cars that come in and the people that have come to visit you to the point of being rude. They asked someone who was actually staying at the Holiday Park to park her vehicle on the road and when we questioned this the owner went nuts and told us to leave the property.

All in all a horrific experience, we had already paid for the second night and they would not give us a refund so we had to stay there again - if you want a relaxing weekend with some privacy I suggest you don't stay here!

We welcome feed back - its helps our business continue to grow.
This reviewer made the reservation but did not stay at the park and appears unwilling to accept responsibility for the unacceptable behaviour for some of her family and friends(teenagers).
A guest was asked to leave the property for abusive language and intimidating behaviour towards the female owner which was witnessed by staff.
The guests who stayed did not mention the unit being shabby which was redecorated 3 years ago.
Visitors are welcome and our our Visitor Policy on the sign at entrance and Guest Information Guide clearly requests visitors to report to the office on arrival.This is standard policy in well managed Holiday Parks and ensures the safety of all our guests.
We are usually able to provide parking for up to 2 cars per unit.We were able to find parking for the 5 cars from this group.When we are busy visitors are requested to park on the road.At one stage we had 5 additional vechicles blocking the driveway.
We also had difficulty obtaining payment.
62% of our business is 'repeat' or 'referrals' who come to enjoy our hospitality in a relaxing and safe enviroment.
