Stayed here for 5 Nights in a Campervan on a powered site with another couple also in a motorhome on a powered site. We visited in peak season, so facilities were busy as you would expect, this was no problem. Positives: Close to Redwood MTB Park, Bike Wash Facilities, Nice big BBQ for cooking, good Wi-Fi. Negatives: The site generally...

Thank you for your response and we appreciated the feedback - I'm sorry you felt your stay was a disappointment.

We stayed here overnight and spent the day time in Rotorua at the luge and doing various other things. The park itself is not a holiday destination in itself which is fine, it serves its purpose well. There is a hot pools there which friends really enjoyed. Only negative thing was there were not enough showers in the bathrooms to...

Thanks very much for your response and we appreciate the reply - our Holiday Park is in the process of massive upgrades once our peak holiday season finishes so there are exciting times ahead.

My husband and I stayed here in the past and loved it. When we decided to go to Rotorua, we didn't even question where we were going to stay and booked this park again. The thermal pools are nice, but we were very disappointed to learn that that the main kitchen and lounge area are locked up at 11pm every...

Thank you for your response and we appreciate the reply. The reason we lock the main kitchen and lounge at 11.00 pm (or thereabouts) is to try and alleviate noise for the rest of the holiday makers and to stop people who aren't staying at our Holiday Park from entering these facilities and helping themselves, which has happened in the...

This is kiwi camping at it's most basic. Yes reasonably priced but we unlikely to come again. The place generally had unkept appearance. Yes close to town but facilities in need of an upgrade. Lots of choice of accommodation but caravan and tent sites generally dusty or muddy.

We really enjoy our time we spend here at Rotorua Thermal Holiday Park, it brings the nostalgia to kiwi camping which we love, staff are always lovely and very friendly. So handy having mineral pools at the campground - no need to go into town.

Booked for 3 nights and 4 days for 11 of us. The booking website misled us with saying its comfortable for 11,but arriving at our cabin, looked more like comfortable for 6!

Very friendly, help ful staff. Cabins cleverly furnished, and although small, felt spacious and comfortable. Close to Maori Villages and hot springs, and the beatiful city of Rotorua, yet felt secluded and peaceful. Well equipped camp kitchen, very clean and well maintained. would definitely stay here again

This campground lacks the ambience I experienced at many other NZ campgrounds I visited. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the facility was clean. The location is little out of the way and my GPS didn't quite find it. Full amenities with community kitchen area (did not use) and clean bathrooms. The thermal pool (reason I selected this location)...

The cabins were separate, giving a little privacy, but the interior was very small. There was no way two people could get into the bathroom/toilet.
