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! Its not so clean, bathroom needs a good clean up as well as the stove. Some of us ended up having showers in the common bathroom. The only...

Thank you for your response and we appreciate the feedback - sorry to hear about your accommodation was not adequate, I'm not sure what type of room you booked but our large tourist flats only sleep 8-10 maximum, apologies if this was an oversight and possibly why there was a lack of hot water in you room.

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

Thank you very much for your wonderful positive response - we really appreciate it.

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)...

Everything about this place surprised us. The people...wow...they were all gorgeous! So super friendly and helpful. NOTHING was too much trouble. They went the extra mile..mile after mile!

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. Our unit could sleep up to 7 people but they would hardly all get into the lounge/kitchen. We did not expect top quality accommodation but thought the units were a bit over priced for the...

Our ensuite cabin was an excellent price and very clean. Check in and out was a breeze, even outside of business hours. Reception staff were friendly and it was very easy to find our cabin and other park facilities. Only down side was that we were woken fairly early by wood chopping and other banging noises close to our cabin.
