Bay of Islands Holiday park
Ranked #17 of 21 Paihia B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Nice spot with a river flowing past that you can take a kayak for 20 minutes to a waterfall. Plenty of trees. Facilities a bit outdated and could do with some modernising. Downside was the rudeness and disrespect shown by host. Won't elaborate further but I have been to many camps and holiday spots and haven't experienced such insult to me and my family. For that reason we won't go back.

We had a look at the sites closer to the sea (including one with the same name) but decided that we preferred the peace and tranquillity of this well maintained site to stay in our campervan. Nice spots to sit by river and plenty of trees. Incredibly tame birds and the important facilities very clean and spacious.

Stayed here with 3 other families on a weekend away.

Lovely spot with lots of space and a decent playground for the kids to run off some steam after 4 hours in the car.

Mozzies everywhere so bring some insect repellant however worth the bugs to sit outside and enjoy the evenings.

Would definitely come back here again.

This was the best park we stayed in while on the North Island. The location even though out of town is grand. The grounds are beatiful, the playground and flying fox are a treat for the kids and the river is so peaceful. The caretakers are nice and attention to detail does not rapt this place up enough. The cleanest bathroom, great kitchen facilities. This is a must stay place.

Stayed here two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Cabin was really clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Great location by the river and only a few minutes drive from the town/supermarket/shops etc. Friendly and helpful hosts.

Ran out of time but would lived to have hired kayaks to explore the river right on our doorstop. Staff were very friendly and made us and the children very welcome.

Room Tip: One bedroom cabin are very basic but met our needs for only 2 nights. Next time would look at availa...
