In order to make the crossing the following morning at 7:00 we chose to stay at this Holiday Park. People were very nice and facilities were clean but at a $50 cost for 2, we felt that the $$ were a wee steep for the services. The next night we stayed at the DOC for a third of the price... More

We stayed here the night before the TAC, the lady on the front desk gave me a warm friendly welcome, and booked me onto the shuttle for the following day ($35). The camper van space we had was a generous size in a calm and tranquil spot. The facilities are clean, but as expected can get busy at 'rush hour'.

When we arrived I found I'd stuffed up our booking for a cabin (incorrectly assumed it would be self-contained) but the lady at reception was understanding of our plight and volunteered to refund our deposit. So, although we didn't stay here, I'd like to recognise the good service we received.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 6 person cabin and was very impressed. The cabins were basic but clean, smelled fine, and a mattress protector and pillows were provided. There was a heater in the room if needed. Everyone at the park was friendly and there were new and excellent clean kitchens with gas. The bathrooms were also in... More

First and foremost I liked the location of the premises. Relatively close by to whatever you may want to do. However I did not like the staff that worked there with their uptight attitude and general unfriendliness. As one other reviewer has actually stated they lack any common sense when it comes to initiative. And a professional staff may be... More

The place is well located if you wanna do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Only few minutes away from the end car park. We had a double room which was quite clean (we found a big dead bug under the bed though) and the bathrooms were clean. It would of be nice to have a mirror in our room because the... More

We stayed in a twin cabin . For $65 per night you can't expect much and it was small but enough room for us and our bags. Rooms were warm and facilities clean enough. Great place to stay before the Tongariro Crossing as buses stop here to pick you up.

Booked two nights through Booking.Com. When you print the confirmation, it tells you that linen is included, but the email confirmation message states it isn't. To be fair, I emailed them about this discrepancy and received a response that this is 'interesting' and that I can hire linen for $7 a set. When I later read other reviews that there... More

Situated on the main road a few kilometres from the pick up point for the Tongariro alpine crossing this site should be ideal. Alas we arrived yesterday at 7.50pm, sunny evening plenty of activity and space on the site and were refused entry as gates close at 7.30pm. I apologised for not making their time and explained I did not... More
