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

Thanks for the feedback Disappointed to learn that your stay did not live up to your expectations Unfortunately we can't do much about the noise which is a trade off against our central location 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.

Arrived late straight off the Interisland ferry from Wellington, greeted with a friendly welcome and promptly pointed in the direction of our motorhome site. We only stayed a couple of nights arriving late and leaving early with a busy day swimming with dolphins and exploring the seal colony's in Kaikoura so we didn't realty get a chance to explore the...

We stayed at the beach front villa which is located directly opposite of the beach. It is a fabulous spot. Spacious and cozy house, beautiful garden and awesome location! It offers space for 6 person in a typical kiwi style house. Ja st perfect!!

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.

We (2 families) took the kids away for a night, we were a little early checking in but it was no problem the 2 bedroom motel units we had booked were ready. Kids got straight into exploring whilst the adults relaxed. With the jumping pillow, playground and games room plus the go carts we hardly saw the kids. The units... More

We spent a night in one of the standard cabins. It was basic but clean, tidy and warm. BYO blankets/duvet but I didn't mind that for the price. Sheets and pillows provided. The main amenity block had very clean showers and toilets. Hot water was great. The kitchen was tidy and clean as well but BYO utensils etc. Cafes and... More

Nice new cabins, clean and tidy. Close to town. Booked from previous park. When we checked in, we asked if we could not have one of the cabins that backed directly onto the very noisy main road as the semi trailers thundering up and down the road would keep me awake. Explained I was a light sleeper, and also the... More

Great place to stay. We had been on the road for 4 days without a shower so booked in. Amenities were of high standard, showers and toilets super clean. Laundry didnt take as long as other places. Everything you need and a short walk to town...super friendly lady on the counter. Highly recommend to all!
