Christchurch TOP 10 Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Only staying for one night on arrival we found this place to be close to the airport, shops and well set-up with lovely surrounds. Our room was clean and both bathroom and kitchen were well equipped. Only thing you have to look out for are the kids that run freely around the park...parents fault not park staff. Friendly staff...would book again.

Thanks for your feedback.
It is a great place for kids to stay, the Park has a safe feel to it, enabling children to meander at their leisure. Everyone seems to be aware of the kids, the traffic within the Park moves at a leisurely pace - just the kind of pace you would wish for on a holiday!

Having toured most of NZ for over a month, from North to South island, we stopped in Christchurch top 10 on our last 2 days in NZ. Having been to a lot of top 10 sites, this one is a pretty decent one, the facilities were clean and modern in the new block. The only gripe is it's one of the most expensive top 10 sites there is, around $48 dollars a night for a powered site, which isn’t a lot in itself but is around $10 more a night than most (unsure why?). This site is also quite a way out of Christchurch itself but there is a bus stop outside the site which takes around 20 minutes into the city itself. We would stay here again if arriving or departing from Christchurch but am still unsure why the price is higher than most and the facilities/sites are the same...

I have had a look at the prices of comparable TOP 10 sites in the South Island and found a range between $42 and $50. Costs have risen, particularly insurance for Christchurch by a considerable amount each month. As an aside, our insurance excess has risen from
$1000 to $1 000 000 in the past 2 years.

If you want to hear the guy next door snoaring, and pay an extravagant fare for it, just spend the night in that TOP 10. We'd had an excellent value for money in another Top 10 in NZ, and checked in in Christchurch without asking for the price. $.65 later, for a powered site, 2 adults and a 30months old PAYING toddler, we make our way to a ridiculously small site. We were so close to the next camper that we could literraly not open the hatch door.....
So yes, the playground is big and yes, the kitchen and bathroom are in good condition, although there is no hair dryer in them, that last night in Christchurch left us a bad feeling...
Please, just select another holiday park, those guys have to understand they are actually screwing their customers.

I was curious as to how other comparable TOP 10 Parks were priced at the moment after seeing your posting. The half dozen parks I looked at ranged between $42 and $50 for two in comparison to our $48 for 2 people. Some days it has been busy at the Park, it is great to see the tourists returning to Christchurch, for this reason we are preparing to seek permission to develop more power sites for the Park.

This place ranges from tent sites to motels, has 2 kitchens and a large dining room. We stayed as a group and it was awesome. We stayed as a couple in a different room and it was great - clean and the staff and friendly and helpful.

A mixed-feeling review for me. Stayed in a powered site and when campervaners choose a site, they might look for clean toilets, water, power, kitchen, playground for kids etc. they have it all but so do other parks. The appearance of the office is luxurious and i didn't really need to pay for that. service is good though. It was very packed and maneuvering to your dumpstation or in/out your lot(on many sites) can be frustrating. You can't find privacy here. Playground is superb. Location near to northland mall. Probably the other accomodation types are better, i don't know but i just think they should charge less for powered sites as the added features don't make up to the difference paid as compared to other sites. A kind suggestion, plant hedges or place wood panels to partly block off view of other lots. Too many cramped in - feels like part of a herd. The campervan has already been paid for. to be fair, the place is very nicely constructed.

Thank you for your feedback, I am listening to what you are saying. Interesting to hear the dumpstation was challenging. It is sometimes challenging working with the infrastructure of a Park which is over 50 years old!
With regards to our site price, I would hazard a guess that our costs are possibly higher than some due to our location in a city - particularly in Christchurch in the past two years. It is our intention to offer additional facilities and services for our guests.

prebooked our accomodation..paid full in advance..
motel unit was 'Kozy Kiwi'..it was definitely cozy & pleasant..most importantly affordable..nice & memorable budget stay..Rooms were clean & well maintained..
Car parking was right next to the unit itslef & being a little out of the city, the sky was perfect for star gazing..

Room Tip: It doesn't burn a hole in ur pocket & manages to give u a very pleasant feel, but don't...

THank you for your feedback. I am delighted with your description of the Kozy Kiwi. You are correct in what you say. This is not a luxury hotel or motel unit, but a pleasant self-contained unit. It is fairly compact but provides you with everything you need for a very comfortable stay, best of all it will not break the bank. Hope to see you again.

We had stayed in Christchurch Top 10 Holiday Park before and were pleased with the studio unit and service, but this time we were very disappointed with the lack of service. We stayed for 7 days in a one bedroom motel unit and the quality of service was sincerely lacking, we didn't have a sheet change or have the toilet or bathroom cleaned in 7 days. There were also some maintenance issues that were a safety hazzard and an electric frypan that didn't work. My husband who is over 6ft could not have a decent shower as the cubicle was small and the shower head was to low, when we have stayed in other Top 10 Holiday Parks around New Zealand they have been really good.

Your feedback has been extremely helpful, as we have detected a staff error in our servicing. Unfortunately a staff member misunderstood a request we made inhouse regarding servicing. This error has been amended; daily servicing continues and full servicing takes place every 3 days, as it should.
We apologise for the inconvenience this caused during your stay.
