This was one of the best appointed camping grounds we stayed in our three weeks around NZ. Very spacious grounds, so we weren't crammed up against fellow campers, and the communal kitchen, laundry and bathroom facilties were the cleanest and best we encountered in our travels.
We used the gas BBQ and dining area a few times; it was a perfect setting to meet up with friends as we didn't have any room to entertain in our campervan.
The railway line runs along the back, but this didn't bother us at all. We enjoyed a restful stay and extended it by several days.

Thank you for your review you posted. Sorry for the length of time it has taken me to responed but still getting use to using social media. Pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. The trains can be a bit of a problem but I know I would prefer to hear a couple of trains going past during the night than city traffic all night long.

We stayed in a studio unit. It was a bit more modern than the other cabins we stayed in around the North Island. However it did smell a bit off, particularly the bathroom which had a urine smell.

On the up-side the grounds were really well-maintained with nice gardens and there was a gym on-site which we could use for a small fee.

There is a main road and railway nearby but the noise actually wasn't that noticeable. The holiday park is well situated to visit Waitomo Caves.

Hi Andrea. Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. Feed back is helpful and appreciated. Sorry about the odd smell in the bathroom. This possibly is the smell of the bug spray we have to use to keep bed bugs away. We do try to keep cemical use to a minimum including bug spray cleaning cemicals and outdoor garden sprays. Thank you for your comment about our gardens and grounds and the fitness centre. Hope you enjoyed your holiday throughout NZ.
Regards Billie

did 6 weeks in nz and this was one of the smaller units we stayed in. no seats and bed took up most of the lounge/kichen area. basic kitchen with good sized bathroom. not far from waitomo and close to the high street just off the state highway. the park has a busy road (during the day)on one side and and railway freight line on other side. we had 3 adults and just coped for 1 night with lack of space (luggage etc)

Dear dolphin60_40
Thank you for your review of our holiday park. Sorry you were in one of our smaller units, these units are more suitable for 2 persons but can sleep 3 if required. I agree that these units are possibly a little small for 3 adults, however we do get couples with one child/infant staying in these units and find them to be ideal. We do have 2 larger units at our park and I am not sure why one wasn't suggested to you. Perhaps both of the larger units were already booked. We do have a busy road frontage during the day but very quiet during the evening. We have had a lot of guests staying on for extra nights due to the evenings being very quiet. Other than having a small unit at our park, I hope you had an enjoyable holiday in New Zealand.

Really enjoyed my stay at this camping ground. Walking distrance to local shops and resturants. Good size unit for my family of 4 and a great play ground for my 6 and 4 year old children.

We were looking for a one night stay near the Waitomo Caves. We were offered a self-contained unit for ca. NZD 89.00. Given we really just wanted to have a quick sleep and didn't know the surrounding, we agreed. Positives: Good Shower. Negatives: Shower curtain had staines, toilet and washbowl so tiny that it was more like a joke, floor was not clean and had a hole, Beds not comfortable, but actually the worst part of the experience was when we discovered this huge coachroach while trying to fall asleep. Maybe some people like them or are used to them, but I find them just disgusting. We travelled two months through South America in hotels/motels and usually paid NZD 20 or less and NEVER had to stay in such conditions. Given the price we paid this was a rip-off and simply does not meet basic accomodation standards. I wonder if they ever had inspections here at all or if someone requires them to meet any standards at all.
