“Friendly staff, clean rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights with my daughter in an ensuite cabin number 5. The room was very clean, towels and milk provided. We werent in the room much which is good as it was a bit of a squeeze, the ensuite was tiny once the door was closed hardly enough room to turn around but it was a good price so suppose I shouldnt moan.

Admittedly I chose it because it was on a route into town which would be easy to use but Blenheim Road is a dual carridgeway and I could hear the traffic in the mornings streaming into town.

Staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to traffic noise try and get something as far from the road as possible.

Blenheim Road can be busy morning and night with people travelling into Christchurch for work.
Since your visit we have upgraded all our En-suite Cabins and Studio Units by having new frontages constucted complete with double glazing and insulation added.
This will help keep noise to a minimum also easier to heat.

We hope you will notice the difference when you next visit Christchurch

We have stayed with this park a number of times and will always do so. Very reasonable rates. Top service! (Little things like heaters put on in the rooms for you if arriving late in the night). Friendly managers. Easy to find when you arrive late at night and are tired. Thanks again!

We have stayed at Amber Park on three occassions in the process of emigrating to Christchurch and each time I have been impressed by the level of cleanliness and attention to detail (washing basket in the laundry room so you don't pull all your clean laundry onto the floor, umbrellas in reception, bath mats in the showers etc etc, some fresh milk for tea and coffee if you stay in a cabin).

Sharon and John are great hosts, friendly and accommodating and never seem to stop working.

The site is great to access the city and as a result is on a fairly busy road. However most of the accommodation is set back and it shouldn't bother you unless you are very sensitive!

Thanks again
Philippa

We stayed here on our first and last nights in New Zealand. Loved being a little out of town, and despite being on a busy road there was no traffic noise interrupting with our sleep. Great prices for what you get, best sleeps I had during the entire trip! Staff were very helpful and welcoming.

We stayed here on our first and last night of our trip. The staff where very helpful giving me directions and answering my questions. It's very close to shops. Would stay there again. My one suggestion would be to increase the water pressure for filling up the campers water. Everywhere else it took a few minutes to fill the water tank, here it took about 15-20 minutes. But don't worry about the shower water pressure, that was brilliant - hot too!
Would recommend it to anyone staying in Christchurch.

We stayed in a camper van so we used all the communal facilities. Everything was very clean, tidy and met all our needs. Host was friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money. Good location close to everything. Will be back soon!
