This Holiday Park is just 4k north of the airport. Occasional 'planes fly over but we did not find the noise a problem.
Parking right outside the door to the unit.
We arrived late a night but this was not a problem, the key was available. However it was cold when we arrived and we could not warm the room with the tiny electric fan heater, also no plug for the electric blanket on one side (side tables would also be nice), so did not sleep well that night (next night ok though). It was an ensuite cabin, the bathroom very small and narrow (tiny basin but would be difficult to fit a larger one) but was clean enough. The living area was very large with kitchen, sofa for sitting, a good fridge, well ventilated with large bright windows and good curtains (bit short on microwave cooking bowls). The bed must've been comfy as we slept ok.
Reception service was excellent, Siobhan is excellent and Julie (owner) likewise. Julie suggested a new small bus tour of Christchurch - only 4 of us on it and it was very good, we saw a great deal including the city centre (still cordoned off), Lyttleton, eastern areas and beaches, etc. It is so sad to see the damage.
The park unfortunately is somewhat run-down but we would stay there again due to the excellent service and we had no major complaints about the accommodation - of which they have a wide range from basic to motel rooms. It is a large park, easy to find from the airport as it is just off Highway 1 but far enough off not to be road noisy.
Being caravanners in Aus we had a quick peak at the ablutions - no shortage of showers. Laundry small but there is another block. Computers and internet room also.
We would certainly stay there again.
