It is a nice camping place, we have visited during winter. The showers were ok. The hot tub (free of charge) was a great activity to do with the kids. They also enjoyed the games room (real air shuffle, pool table, table football) and the jumping pillow. Laundry facility was very good.There is free WIFI up to 500 MB when... More

We visited Kaikoura during the coldest period of our trip when skies seemed to be bluest. The setting, against the Kaikoura range is magnificent and the proximity of the site to the town and coastal walks makes it a great place to stay. Unfortunately there was an upgrade to the toilet and shower facilities so we went unisex for the... More

We stayed in a self-contained unit and thoroughly loved the unit. So warm and cosy with absolutely everything we needed. The welcome from the super friendly staff was great and they were so helpful nothing was a problem for them. Although the unit was right by the main road there was absolutely no noise from the road. Double glazing certainly... More

We stayed here as it was listed as a Top 10 holiday park so thought it would be of good quality. The room was small but cosy and very clean, but we had a lot of issues with noise. It was right by the road so any vehicle that went past could be heard, but the most disappointing of all... More

Nice rooms with tv, wifi, etc. and plenty of great services such as jumping pillow and NEOS system. Staff is super friendly. Can walk to anywhere around town, and is located in a great place for runners.

We visited in the middle of winter and were traveling in our campervan. The hot tub was amazing and private, you just have to book a time. The facilities were great and the TV room had a heat pump which was perfect for watching a movie. Staff were helpful, Top 10 Holiday Parks are the best!

No special campground but also nothing to complain. Everything was okay. About 5 minutes walk to the centre of the town so no car needed. Also 5 minutes walk from the Kaikour whale watch and 1 minute walk to Tuti's restaurant.
