Top 10 Travel Parks are generally a great way to stay when you are touring New Zealand. Low priced rooms with nice amenities (kitchen, game room, wireless, laundry room, etc.). We've stayed at Top 10 Kaikoura (great); Top 10 Blenheim (great) and Top 10 Picton (great). So when we traveled to the West Coast, of course we looked for the local Top 10. It is a great location at the top of the West Coast... a stone's throw from the beach and 5 minutes to town (Westport). Unfortunately, the place is either a construction zone (kitchen) or crippled (walk to shared kitchen to get full wireless service) or nonfunctioning (game room). Our advice? We like Top 10 because it makes traveling on a budget a breeze. But... unless things change A LOT, skip this one! Oh yeah, and did they mention ANY of this when we signed in for the night? Sorry guys, this does NOT get it.
