“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

After reading the previous reviews we were rather disappointed with this site. Staff were friendly but the pitches were very small and too close together. We were unable to leave in the morning as there were vans and cars blocking us in.

Sorry you felt trapped and it was difficult for you to get in and out.As i have mentioned before, our park is small and we welcome our guests to visit the site before checking in.I wish i could have been informed as we would have been more than happy to change it or at least get other guests to move their vehicles that were in the way, unfortunately at this busy time some guests are not as considerate than others! Thanks for the feedback though, we do listen and take these comments seriously.cheers.

We stayed here in our campervan for 2 nights. Yes the pitches are close together but the facilities are good and you are not on top of the road and train track like other sites. We would definitely stay there again. What differentiates this from any other holiday park is that they really care that you have a good time. We received and email a few days before our arrival suggesting things to do and after our departure asking if we had enjoyed the stay. Thank you alpine pacific holiday park.

I have stayed at many campgrounds in the South Island in New Zealand including several Top 10 holiday parks, but this one is easily one of the best I have been in. Excellent kitchen, shower and spa faciltiies. A bit small but very tidy and immaculate with great backdrop of the Kaikoura ranges. They charge in advance unlike the Top 10s and I was a little apprehensive about that but it turned out that they were very very good.

Very friendly staff at this small, pleasant holiday park. Excellent views of the surrounding mountains. Picnic benches handily placed between pitches, excellent bbq, laundry and showering facilities. Swimming pool and two spas on site. Vans would be very close to each other if it was full however. On the main road into town but quite a walk to the centre. Make sure you visit the cinema in town which has just been converted to digital from the old reel-to-reel system. Would definitely stay again.

We had a family camping holiday at this holiday park a year ago, and liked it so much we came back! Our son (3 years) was loved the tramp and the swimming pool. We appreciated the well-thought out and spotless facilities and the soothing view out over the river.

The grounds are very clean, as are all of the amenities. The staff even when arriving late were very helpful and couldn't have been nicer. They have there own pool and large kitchen area. I would stay here again.

Great experience all round. Really friendly and helpful person on reception, Rachael I think, utensils available to borrow for the kitchen, and a spotless cabin, shared  kitchen and bathroom facilities. Quiet location, handy for the whale watching boat, an internet kiosk and early opening coffee caravan across the road! What more could you want?
