We stayed in a deluxe cabin for one night with the children. The room was biasic, but clean and warm with a playground in easy view. Good value accommodation. Staff were friendly and helpful. Suited our needs as there wasn't a kitchen or bathroom in the unit but we just stayed for one night.

The unit we stayed in was a good size, clean, comfortable and warm. We had one issue that was of no fault of the camp management and they dealt with it quickly and efficiently. Thank you William for getting out of bed to help. Mustn't forget to mention that the beds were very comfortable. Definitely will stay again.

Stayed in a cabin, it was well equipped, warm and just what we needed. It was cleaned nicely, right down to the towel folded like a dog left on the bed, nice touch! We got a lovely welcome and the office was well equipped with local info.We will return :)

The pillows were like stone. The decor was plain. We're an older couple with kids under 10 and it did not suit our tastes as adults. Kids loved the playground. TVs was not good for kids either - nothing but terrestrial tv cartoon rubbishy.

We have spent 2wks travelling in a campervan in the South Island & this was our final stop over on our return to Auckland. We stayed on a powered site.

Following check in to reception we found our Motorhome power site and set up. We walked around the amenities and found them to be spotlessly clean from Laundromat, kitchen and toilet and showers. I found the internet connection to be excellent and cheap once your 1/2 hour had expired. We decided to stay another night and there was no problem... More

At the end of a rainy afternoon, we had the luck to talk by phone with Vicki, the receptionist who was kind enough to grant us a cabin without asking us a whole series of questions over the phone. Not long after, when we arrived, she gave us a friendly tour of the premisses. The site is very well kept... More
