I booked for a motel room for 3 but should have said for 4 as my other boy decided to come at the last min, Kitchen and bathroom was clean. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. The room was spacious and plenty of room to move around the kitchen table was big and relaxing to sit around, there was... More

Got bed bugs from the awful and uncomfortable beds. The BBQ had mould growing on it and was unusable. The water was not drinkable, we had to boil it for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth. The room was absolutely minute and pretty smelly. Not a nice place to stay at all.

The camp ground could do with a bit of TLC. I miss the old cinema nights. The walk to the beach is nice. Go up the road for coffee at the honey place in the morning. I've previously been up to the East Cape Lighthouse from here on a tour, which they still do.

Stopped overnight to break up the journey, facilities were fine for an overnight stay and Bill the owner was super friendly which makes all the difference. Nice peaceful spot close to the beach. There is a shop onsite which also has a licence so you can pick up a bottle of wine ! Showers and toilets are clean and there... More

Stayed with my now fiancé in one of the tourist flats recently as a bit of comfort after getting engaged that day, only to find that the tourist flat we had was not up to scratch for what I had paid. The shower was only cold so had to use the shower block, despite it being one of the reasons... More

We had 2 nights here. Lovely spot with lots of space and trees. The owner Bill arranged us some horse rides which the kids loved. Beach on the day was sadly a bit rough to swim in. A nice stop if you're driving around the Cape. Facilities could do with a tidy up possibly but still a great place.

This is a fabulous family owned holiday park in one of the most beautiful corners of New Zealand. Sure it's not as glitzy as the Top 10 parks but its full of charm, sells its own takeaways each evening and is just a couple of minutes walk through fields to a fabulous beach. Bill, the manager is great, always smiling... More

This camping ground complex is 5kms from Te Araroa Township itself, just at the base of the hill on the right hand side before you start climbing. Its flat and has a variety of camping spots to chose from, amenities are basic but adequate. The beach is a short walk across a paddock. Bring in your supplies from the Four... More

A decent site that has everything you could want in a campsite. Perhaps not the most fancy, but there are enough facilities and everything is clean enough. It's good value and if you're driving round the Hicks Bay region you can't find much better for the price.

What a find, very peaceful position, large motel rooms, spotlessly clean. Small store with all basics. Lovely lady cooking fish & chips from a quirky caravan until 7pm at night. We were heading for a bigger town to stay and came across this little gem quite by accident. Worth a stay.
