As we only needed overnight accommodation stayed in one of their cabins. This was an excellent choice, plenty of room and very clean. The amenities were more than what we needed and it was very warm with plenty of heating. The owners were very helpful and made us feel at home. Walking distance to the town and right behind the...

We stayed in a self contained chalet. Was very warm, clean and comfortable with good facilities. Very friendly staff willing to oblige with information. Handy place to find and close to all amenities. Nice and quiet apart from the 2 trains that went past during the night.

Best park in New Zealand! Tracy and Shane the owners are wonderful people and always improving the place, very modernized and clean. Spas will be up and running soon too! Walking in the garden that backs on to the park is so relaxing.

We stayed in the 2bedroom apartment. Basic but very clean and warm. Beds are comfy. Very reasonably priced. Staff are helpful and friendly. Next door to the stunning public gardens and a short walk to town centre. We will come back again :)

Very friendly staff at the reception, and it's pretty quiet during our visit, love it when it is not crowded but the automatic heater setting in the toilet/ bathroom is only functional in the morning, it's get pretty cold at night and the BBQ put is so old and not functional, spend more time cleaning it instead of enjoying it....

Stayed here on a powered site for one night. Seems a nice, well run holiday park. Well laid out and easy to navigate. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the kitchen area and amenities were clean. The only downside is that the park is located on a busy road. Be prepared to be woken by cars, trucks and even...

We were made to feel very welcome here. Great local info on where to dine out from the guy in the office made all the difference to our stay. Great play area for the kids. Spotless new bathrooms and kitchen. Just nice!

We were in a campervan, the owners were really friendly, we got discounts we weren't expecting and even some food when the shop across the road was closed.
