We had a fantastic stay at his holiday park and the warmth of welcome was much appreciated after a very long trip. We loved the owners' sense of humour - they made us feel special and at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. There its so much to do at this park which is especially good for families, but you do need to stay for more than just one night! Ask about the rope swing. We appreciated the high standards of their facilities.

On arriving in Wanganui - from South Africa - we were very impressed and really happy with everything that management of Wanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park had to offer us.
They went out of their way to make our stay most comfortable. We asked if they could suggest a restaurant for dinner - but after having driven the whole day, my husband was not keen to go out for dinner - so we decided to order in from the menu given to us.
We enjoyed the meal and were happy to pay the additional service fee for the ordering and for the service of delivery to our door.
They go the extra mile for their guests. Thank you

We have just spent a night in a campervan at this holiday park and whilst I can't fault the lovely river views and the great showers I must warn you of the dishonest manager 'Andre'. Please be very very careful here. First he charged us for an extra child when he knew exactly how many people we had. But here's the really bad part - he tells you at check in that a chinese restaurant delivers to the park and gives you a take away menu. It's not the real menu though! It's one he made up himself to look like the real chinese menu, but with the prices increased between 50 - 100% for every item! He doesn't tell you this mind you, and we went ahead and took him up on the offer of phoning through the order for us. It cost us $78. The chinese was great but the delivery man left the docket in the bag that said it cost $50. The following day I queried it with 'Andre' and he grabbed the real docket off me and screwed it up, obviously not happy I'd seen it and realised his cheek. I said it was disgraceful he'd charged an extra $28 just for phoning the order through, and that he had no right to make out it was the real menu he'd given us. He just smirked and said he's entitled to make a business. Note also that the chinese restaurant is not in on this. I'll be contacting them too as I'm sure they will not be impressed. So beware. If you stay here you'll have a nice shower, but you may also be overcharged for the site and whatever you do ask him for the location of the chinese shop and buy it directly from them. Don't trust this man. He's a fraud. Please pass this on. I hate the thought that others will unknowingly be ripped off the way we were. He was so rude about it too. Creep.

We are open to critisism and we fully understand that we can not be everything for everybody, but this guest unfortunately posted incorrect information - her husband booked a site for 2 adults and 2 children and correctly was charged accordingly on arrival. When it was discovered that 1 child is an infant, he was immediately given a refund - they were not charged for 2 children, but correctly for 1 child. We can only assume that her husband did not inform her accordingly.

For the rest of the review, we object to the personal attack that is launched and the use of abusive terms like "dishonest", "creep" etc.

We operate our business in an honest way and offer services to our guests to make their stay comfortable and relaxing. If these services do not suit guets, they have the choice not to use them.

This must have been our 5th or maybe even 6th stay at the Whanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park ! The facilities and ablusions are of an extremely high standard. We love the family friendly park and even though it is next to the river, everyboby at the camp always keep an eye out for any wondering kids. It is a great camp and we have stayed in a motel unit, a kitchen cabin on one of our trips, a self contained unit on another and have camped in our tent three times. The main reason for us going back every time will have to be the children - they love the camp and if they are happy, so are mum and dad! We have formed lasting friendships with other campers, the staff as well as the owners. If you would love to experience unbelievable hospitality and superb ablusions, I would have to suggest a trip to the Whanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park!
