“Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

We stayed for one night, principally to go and see the penguins nearby, which we did successfully.

The site was clean and friendly with knowledgeable staff who were able to direct us accurately to where we wanted to go.

All facilities were as you would expect from a top ten site.

We had an over night stop here in our camper van was clean and tidy and the lady behind the counter was very helpful with directions and things to do.
Also had a laugh with how she described some shops in town (everything open and broken shop)
Would stay here again

Room Tip: Plenty of room in a camper van

Only stayed here one night. The lady on reception was helpful and friendly. The facilities were spotless. Had a nice spot on an unpowered site tucked in between the trees. Only downside is the train track which runs close by, we were woken up by the early morning train.

This camp remains one of the best we have experienced. The staff are friendly and approachable, with a can-do attitude. We rode out a horrible storm in this camp, four days' long. In spite of the howling winds and driving rain, we stayed dry and war, and enjoyed the facilities.

We stayed here one night only a few weeks back. We were welcomed and shown our Motel unit by a very friendly lady which is always nice.....we had a large unit by the entrance to the Park....it was great... very nice furnishings, well equiped with everything required....could not fault this place at all, and we said it sure is Top 10..... The grounds were well kept and everything looked to be spot on.

We stayed overnight in Oamaru. 4 of us over 70 we were there to see the Blue penguins.
We all shared the 2 bedroom unit which was clean and tidy, nice and quiet and large enough for us all to sleep and eat.
The only complaint was that after being given a very small bottle of milk for free, just like the other 2 people in the next unit.When we asked for a further bottle because there were 4 of us they wanted to charge us over $2 for it.But after complaining they saw our point and gave us another bottle.

We stayed overnight here in Oamaru on the way to Christchurch...
The lady/owner at reception was nice and friendly...
The room was basic but did the job,though the bed was squeaky....

The let down was that the rm didn't include linen, so you had to pay extra for this at reception.... This hadn't happened at other top 10's we'd stayed in and were charging a similar price....

Also be warned...
The penguin sanctuary charge's you to see them come ashore, a complete ripoff...
