The campground basically is a car park. There's no privacy or free space at all. No grass, just gravel. The sites are literally 2 meters aside the railroad which runs multiple times a night and definitely will wake you up. Facilities are old and not very clean. The Top10 holiday park just 100m down the road is way better and... More

I stayed here for about 5 weeks in October and November. I had a 4 bed dorm room with a kitchenette. It wasn't full at first but filled up after about a week of me being there. The room wasn't super large, but it worked well enough with the 4 of us, and we all happened to really get along... More

There are only about 8 tent sites, however they are sandwiched between the railway line and the main road of the site. Paid for our site before properly checking it out (biggest mistake ever) and once we realised what it was like we asked for a refund and they said no. The wifi didn't work, and there were no kitchen... More

We only stayed here for one night in September and we ended up bumping in to friends. We sat out in the spacious garden and had a few beers. They said there are good parties on the weekend as it is a working hostel and there is a good vibe to the place. The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable and... More

Pretty chill place with a nice social atmosphere. Was a great place to stay for a week, while working in the vineyards, to meet fellow backpackers from all over the world. Staff was kind and helpful. I enjoyed making art in the evenings in the outdoor library. A couple downsides are the Wifi was rather inconsistent and the interior walls... More

We stayed for almost a month. The facilities are good, hot showers and pool available. We got the room so we had our own cosy patch with a kitchen. Couldn't ask for more. Its a great place to hang out and meet up with other people - the common areas are great for parties. Managers are friendly and really helpful.... More

My partner and I enjoy camping and like places like this that are not flashy but provide the basic facilities you need when tenting. We have stayed twice and found it good value for what you pay but a tip is make sure you have warm sleeping bahs and clothing because as well as beautiful days Blenheim has frosty nights.... More

If I was staying in Blenheim for a week or more, I would stay here. We had a great time, Martin and Seda are the best. Rent a cabin or hut, otherwise it is pretty rough with the train right outside the place.
