“Beautiful spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

For our first night campervanning in NZ, we stayed in the Top 10 holiday park in Waitomo. It was so good, we kept an eye out for Top 10s from then on - but at the end of the trip we agreed that Waitomo was the best of the lot. A beautiful location, good kitchen facilities, clean bathrooms and friendly staff.

Stayed in Waitomo for two nights while we went sightseeing and visited the Caves.

The man that served us on the desk - Walter, was a nice chap and very friendly, trying to entice us with their selection of free dvd rentals. We booked a powered sight and although it was expensive the park and site facilities lived up to the price.

It's nice and clean with a big pool and Spa area, there's even a trampoline for children and big kids, haha.

The shower and toliet facilities were immaculate, you could literally see your face in the sink area. The only little thing was the shower head of one of the showered I used seemed to be slightly loose so hot water was spilling out the side - I completely forgot to mention to reception, so perhaps they might see it on here and have a quick look. Kitchen was lovely and we also made use of the laundry service.

Location is perfect as you are literally in the town centre and right on the door of all the main attractions so you can walk (to Waitomo Caves) or drive (to Aruni Caves) within minutes.

Great site, enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.

Hello Travelchicka2011,
Thank you for taking a moment to comment on your stay in our Holiday Park. Indeed our small collection of DVDs is used and enjoyed by many guests (and their children). I also appreciate your mentioning the loose shower head. The shower heads are one of the few things in the park that are hard to test (without having a shower ourselves). Therefore we have to relay on comments of our guests. Thanks for pointing it out; the problem is fixed now! Have a great day.
Kind Regards
Walter

Stayed over winter and delighted to experience wonderful warm and comfortable units - perfect for those in our group who had toddlers and babies. Clean, comfortable rooms - and a wonderful setting with playground and pool available - yes, it was winter but the spa pool was also available and very clean. Hosts so very helpful and friendly. Situated within walking distances of everything needed at Waitomo Village. Will recommend.

A good stop for campervans/motorhomes with nice facilities. The setting is very rural and picturesque. They offer a discount for cave tickets. The main Waitomo Cave is a 1 min. drive down the road.
