“Amazing don't miss out”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

We have been all around the South Island and this is one of our favourites, after roughing it inacampervan for some weeks we lucked out when we booked motel room 24. Wow heated beds, power shower, very clean, and all on site amenities you could ask for including a heated pool. Top service too. Mr Boss Man whatever u are paying Jill and Ray it's not enough, pay rise please! we will be back for sure

We stayed in an Ensuite Unit near the front of the park. Yes, the train is close but we only heard it once or twice. Too busy enjoying the place and the magnificient scenery.
From the beginning of our stay the young staff were extremely helpful and keen that we should enjoy our stay.The park was very well maintained and managed.The units were spotless and very well laid out compared to others.
Having travelled from the Russell in the north island through to this park, staying at many Top 10 parks and hotels, this would have been the highlight of our holiday.
Congratulations to the staff and management of the park.

Fantastic stay here. Great facilities and value for money. Pool and spa an added extra. Powerfull and clean showers! Camp sites a bit on the smaller side.

They did not tell us that:
- it was next to the railway (10 meters!!)
- the railway had trains during the night
- they have very small spaces for campervans
- they have another wi-fi provider than the other top 10 holiday parks (IAC)
- internet is ridicously expensive
- not worth the quite high amount we have paid

So not very good! Rest was just as the other top 10 holiday parks

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the railway as far as possible!

We are so sorry to hear that you didnt enjoy our 5 star facilities.
Unfortunately the railway does run near our park, it is the trade off for our great location, and it seems only a very very small number of our guests notice the noise. We have now joined up with iac, the other TOP10 parks internet provider, thanks for letting us know you were not happy that we chose to use a different provider. We feel that it is far more important that people have the use of fantastic 5 star facilities, such as our games room, TV lounge, swimming pool,spa pool, cool kids playground a jumping pillow, barbrcue area & heaps of relaxing grassy sites, than a large area to park their campervan.
Thanks.

Stayed at the Holiday park and opted for a "Deluxe Cabin" I will admit were not regular holiday park go-ers and should have asked a few more questions (or maybe the staff could have made us a little more aware) We opted for the deluxe cabin as in included tea and coffee/toaster facilities etc and a TV (not sure it qualifies as a TV though its about as small as my hand) however we weren't advised the bathroom was shared facilities which we wouldn't have opted for considering it was about 4 degrees outside and would have been more than willing to pay extra for private facilities. We were also lucky enough to be assigned to the cabin directly behind the train line AND helicopter pad....Overall though no major complaints, the room was clean, cheap and comfy. Would be great for a family as it had a queen, bunk beds and a trundle which would comfortably fit a family of 5 and the sweet jumping pillow and playground to keep the kidlets (and adventurous adults) entertained. Bathroom facilities were clean and showers for 6 mins of hot water.

I felt it was a shame that a property right next to the beach didn't seem to have access or views :( but it was also only a 300m walk into town so great if your wanting to leave the car behind or have a couple of drinks.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the facilities but not behind the train line or you may get a rude shock at...

Hi Pixieloz85,
Thanks for your feedback on your stay with us.
Great idea about us making it a part of our check in proceedure to ask customers if they need further explanation of our accommodation options. We are going to discuss this at our next meeting.
We are sorry to hear that you were dissapointed with the size of the SKY TV in our deluxe cabins (40cm), and that using the shared bathroom facilities was not what you wanted.
Had we been made aware of this after viewing your room, we would have happily shown you our other accommodation options including our ensuite/studio units (with a larger SKY TV and ensuite bathrooms) and readily accepted payment for an upgrade.
We do have the dilema of the train tracks running near our park (something we have to put up with for our superb proximity to town, restaurants, bars and Whalewatch) and have decided for the comfort of our guests to reduce this noise through growing thick hedges along our boundaries, which does affect the sea views. I hope you got to see the majestic mountain views we boast from the park though.
Its great to hear overall you have no complaints about our park, and loved the fab facilities we have for families here, like our super cool bouncy pillow.
We hope to welcome you back, and accommodate you in one of our self-contained options next time.
