“NOT AS ADVERTISED”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2010

No kitchen (under renovation)
No game room (machines off, pool table felt torn and no cues)
Wireless from room has 2 bars

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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2010

We stayed in a 2 bedroom motel unit for 1 night in Jan 2010. The location was great - very quiet, walking distance to a nice beach, and a seal colony is a short drive away. Small shop/diary was also close by. Cooking facilities in the unit were great. Units were nicely decorated and relatively modern. Car park was covered. Other facilities (eg. internet, games room) were shared with others staying at the holiday park. Staff were friendly. Overall, very good value for money (this was the cheapest nights stay on our trip).
