We stayed in a self contained unit here and were very happy with it. It had full cooking facilities, a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. It was quite roomy with a lovely verandah and fabulous views over the town of Akaroa and the bay. We spent 2 peaceful nights here and were very impressed with the facilities and the location. We'd certainly stay again.

We arrived at the Akaroa Top 10 after a harrowing first day of driving on "the wrong side of the road", in our Britz campervan. The campground did not disappoint. The view over the city to the bay was spectacular. The communal facilities were clean and well equipped. You can walk to town, but it is rather steep walking back. The town is lively especially if a cruise ship is anchored off shore. This is a great first night destination after picking up a camper in Christchurch.

Room Tip: Ask for the first row of "powered" sites. They have the most spectacular view.

We are now ending a 10 day motorhome trip in NZ. We started in Christchurch and spent the first night in Akaroa Holiday Park, where we arrived without daylight. The person attending us was not very helpful, I had the feeling I was disturbing. On the other side he charged us 85NZD for one powered camper site, which was by far the most expensive night of the whole trip. The best part was that he "allowed" us to leave the site at 11 AM of the next day. I now know I threw my money through the window that night. I wonder what they did to be part of the top ten....but price and kindness were definitely not considered.

Our unit may have been old but it recently been repainted, carpet had been cleaned that morning and kitchen well appointed and bathroom clean. Sitting on out on our own little veranda having a drink whilst looking out to the Harbor....magic. The staff, not sure if they're are owners or managers.. either way absolutely brilliant staff and very helpful. Just sad it was only a two night stay...can't wait to go back there.

Visited the Akaroa top 10 site in November, only had a powered site but had one with a view over the town. It's quite a drive from Christchurch into Akaroa, and the roads are very windy. When we arrived it was raining heavy, but I am not writing the review with that in mind. The site is very clean and staff are friendly. We went into the town, and it’s a pretty little place, but in all honesty I don’t think I would visit again.

Stayed here for one night in camper van site overlooking the town. Fantastic site for views with power and water. Amenities were clean with great hot showers. As men's amenities were being painted the boys had a hike uphill to other amenities in drizzly rain. TV lounge had Sky which was great for rugby fans. Walk into town was 500m downhill but is a steep return hike requiring a level of fitness. If intending to come back at night bring a torch or use flashlight on phone as not all lights on path were working.

The unit was very basic but kitchen area seperate which was good. Very cold and took a while to heat up but electric blankets helped and bed was comfy. Large flat screen tv for the dark evenings. Own deck area for sitting out if weather allows. Great view of the harbour.
