“Definately a place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

My wife and I keep coming back after we discovered this camp. It is well maintained and tidy in a quiet location. No trains or planes and bird song to wake you in the morning. We stay in a standard cabin which is snug along with a good bed. One can do the toast and coffee thing in the cabin or use the camp kitchen for a meal. There are several good restaurants a short walk away in the town center as another option.
Brian and Kathryn look after you well. We will continue to return.

We stayed for three nights in our caravan. The camping ground was lovely and clean. Everything that we needed was there. Brian and Kathryn were great hosts, warm, friendly and helpful. The camp is well situated to all the shops and amenities. Geraldine is a really nice place to stay. Loved the tall stately trees.

Nice campsite with helpful owners. Well equipped kitchen with heater (was frosty during our visit) we had no hot water in the shower not sure why. Minutes walk from town with lots of of good cafes. Would prefer just to choose our own site but hey.

Sorry you had a cold shower, we should never run out of water as on gas But please come and tell us at the time, so we can look into it as we don't know unless it is reported.
In regards to being allocated sites, especially in the winter as some areas are too wet and we only have lighting on in certain areas for energy saving measures

We arrived late in the evening on Good Friday and although all of the powered camper van sites were taken, we were offered a non-powered site and escorted to our spot. We were very thankful for the accommodation as we had already been turned away in Fairlie because they were full and we did not feel up to driving any further. The kitchen facilities were clean with plenty of preparation space and a large table. There was additional seating outside. The bathroom facilities were clean. I wish we had had the time to explore the town... as we were driving out we noticed several craft/market stalls. I am not sure if this is every weekend or if it was something special for the Easter holiday but it looked like a lovely way to spend a few hours.

great place to stay. We rented a one bedroom and lounge unit. The managers keep this place spotless, and well run, and are adding several new motel units. Right in the centre of town, 2 minute walk to town

We rented the 'ensuite' unit here. That means we had our own toilet with shower, as well as a kitchen sink, refrigerator and cooking equipment. There is a communal kitchen if you decide to cook something more than toast and tea. The room was very large and comfortable, with a nice bed, table, chairs, and couch. Wi-fi access was reasonably priced, as was the room itself.

The holiday park is right in town, but in a quiet location, so things are close but not noisy. Even though there were a lot of campers parked there, it didn't seem crowded.

Room Tip: They also have cheaper rooms which have no kitchens or cabins where you use the communal toilet/show...
