“Small, very clean but far from town”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

This is a small campervan site that is maintained well. The shower facilities were spotless which is always very important and looked very new. In fact, they actually looked like hotel showers which was very surprising. We cooked in the van as the kitchen facilities near our site were very small and the other was at the opposite end. But we are not ones for using the kitchens really anyway.

The staff were extremely friendly and we got to pick the site we wanted which was great.

Only down side is the distance from the town itself, there is a campervan site in town but if you are happy to be in a quiter area then I highly recommend this place.

Thanks for taking the time to review Invercargill TOP 10 Holiday Park. The quiet setting is one of our points of difference and the great thing about Invercargill is that even though we are on the northern end of town you can drive into the city centre in 5 minutes. We have a great team including cleaners who take pride in giving the best experience for our guests and they will be pleased to read your review. We can all think we are doing a great job but in reality it is down to our customers to decide that and we are glad you enjoyed your time in the deep south.

This Top 10 HP is located about 7 km north of Incercargill's centre, in a quiet environment, yet close to the main road. Camper sites are spaceous and well distributed amongst the motel units. The kitchen block is not very big, but more than comfortable. All other amenities are modern and very well maintained, just as the entire holiday park.
Staff is very helpful, and shows you the way to your site.
We first went to Invercargill's i-Site, and where not very much impressed by friendliness of their staff. Yet we wanted to visit Bluff and even succeeded to take the ferry to Stewart Island. Therefore we had to stay in the neighboorhood. And Top 10 HP's staff made us forget the i-Site experience immediately.
To be recommended!

Room Tip: Don't forget to put one of the traffic cones, to reserve your camper site while you're touri...

Dear Gearoges,

Thank you so much for taking the time to place a review on your stay here with us,

Yes we are situated 5kms from the city centre (or a 10 minute drive), however this allows us to have the quiet rural environment our guests and birdlife enjoy.
We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again the future.

Wow. My sisters and I were given a 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen and bathroom for our stay. It was not even 12 months old and was so luxurious that we thought about extending our stay...didn't though. It was a sumptuous apartment and made every other place pale in insignificance. Staff most helpful. Area lovely and quiet. What more can I say...fantastic.

Had a powered site here in November. This site is another special top 10 site in New Zealand, were given the choice of sites to choose here, which is not like most, which in honesty is fantastic because everyone likes different spots. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Invercargill in all honesty wasn’t our favourite place, but is still worth a visit. If you’re going to Invercargill, stop at this top 10!

We also made a friend here, called Kerri. A beautiful black Labrador who lives there, she stopped with us most of the day (Possibly because she loved the little bits of food we were giving her), we absolutely loved her!

Thank you top10 Invercargill.

I stayed here for just the one night but found the accommodation (a cabin with queen bed plus bunk) very modern, comfortable, clean, and affordable. The toilet blocks were very close to the cabin and were also modern and clean. The camping ground was close to town and easy to find but has an "in the country" atmosphere. I would stay here again if visiting Invercargill especially if I wanted somewhere cheaper than a motel/hotel but with room for the family.

We opted for this top 10 as it was the closet site to the town.

We were quite disappointed with the facilities. There were 2 kitchens, we cooked in the smaller one. There was no extraction, so condensation ran down the walls and made the floor and every other surface wet. It was freezing cold outside, but we had to open the windows and door. The showers were nicely decorated but again no extraction so steam ran down the walls and wet everything including clothes hung on the back of the door.

The kettle didn't work in the kitchen. We did mention it and it was quickly replaced. The toasted only worked if you held it down. We couldn't find any recycling bins either.

For a Top 10, it felt very basic.

Being the southernmost city in NZ the weather can at times be challenging as would appear at the time of this review. We do have two kitchens and one has full extraction of moisture caused by cooking. The showers are vented by way of skylights but we try to balance the need for people to keep warm as well as make sure all steam is gone and on the odd occassion in adverse weather there is condensation. We do take recycling seriously and have two stations in the park in very visible places with a third one due to be completed prior to Christmas.
Guest experience is critical to our business and hopefully Debstheleo will get the oportunity to visit when the sun is out and get the change to experience our park in a different light

We stayed two nights in a deluxe unit which was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The reception welcome and ongoing assistance was excellent.
My only feedback to the Managers would be that some instructions on how and when to use which remote for the TV would avoid frustrations when things go wrong. Also we wondered why all the product labels had been left on white goods and in the bathroom.
Despite these minor things the Holiday Park was well situated and very comfortable.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to post such lovely feedback on your stay here with us at Invercargill TOP 10 Holiday Park.

Your suggestion regarding the instructions on the T.V remotes is very helpful and we are workign on replacing these instructions with something a bit less technical,

The reason we keep the stickers on the whiteware is so that guests know that the appliances that are utilised in the units are of a high enviromental rating.

We hope you enjoyed your stay here with us and we look forward to having you with us again

Kind Regards
Sharlotte McKenzie
