“Great People, Great Location,”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

We are keen skiers and every year we park our caravan down at the Tongariro Holiday Park, we have always found the owners Greg and Donna very nice and helpful, the facilities are always clean and the new showers are fantastic. The location is amazing for skiing, 20 minutes to the top of the Bruce, and the local knowledge that Greg and Donna share is second to none.
When you are on a budget and enjoy skiing as much as we do this is a great option, over the winter this is often our second home and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

I have read some of the other reviews and are a little surprised, everything is well sign posted and is very reasonable for a holiday camp ground, It makes me think that some of the negative people that write the reviews below are very opinionated and just want something for nothing.

Greg and Donna work very hard to provide a clean safe holiday park, they are up at the crack of dawn to post the latest ski reports, they have that true kiwi attitude and are great ambassadors for this amazing country, They care about you and your stay, and are always keen for a chat, especially about the rugby!

Tongariro Holiday Park is a great Holiday Park. It provides a very clean, quiet and comfortable environment. The room was so warm and was equipped with heater made me had a good sleep during the cold night. The bathroom and shower was very clean. Besides can go for a relax spa after a tiring skiing or tracking.

The owners are friendly and kind to provide us a lots of information such as latest weather update, the ski conditions and recommemd us some of nice tracks.
They also made a great effort to keep the holiday park clean and tidy.

I was really enjoyed my stay in this holiday park.

I was disappointed in this park. Given the poor facilities, it was overpriced and the staff were not friendly at all. We booked a campervan site and asked whether we could have a late checkout the next day. We were told we could but only if we paid another full night's site fees. The showers were archaic. Both showers and toilets were closed between 10am and 1pm for cleaning with no other alternative facilities available. We were shouted at by one of the staff for being in the shower at 10.05am. Would not stay here again.

Stayed here with my girlfriend as we were going to do the crossing, found the owner to be friendly and very helpful as we were originally only going to stay for 1 night and they recommended that we stay an extra night after the crossing rather than leave as we planned. Which meant we could use the shower and toilets which are only for guests to use,(which seemed perfectly reasonable) and turned out to be really good advice, as the last thing i wanted to do after the crossing was drive to Taupo. In reference to the review of Steve C we were running late leaving Taupo so we called ahead to say we would be late (8 30) and they said that was fine, even though it was outside their normal office hours, so i can only assume that Steve must have annoyed them by turning up in the middle of the night. As for the stay the facilities were clean and tidy but could do with a bit of updating and was a fairly long drive from any shops etc but it is in a national park...

My partner and I stayed at this place as it seemed great on the internet but When we arrived we knew from the first interaction with the owners that we had made a big mistake.

We arrived at 10:55pm after a long drive to have the owner shout at us, complaining about how we didn't call ahead of time to let them know when our arrival time would be (why don't you pick up the phone and call us). The male owner was covered in tattoos, smelt of booze and had a horrible temper.

After I paid for the night he seemed a whole lot more calm. We got up early in the morning to do the crossing and came back in the late afternoon with my girlfriend's leg bleeding and starting to swell up. We thought that we could use the facilities but they said we would have to stay another night if we wanted a shower, fair enough. But my girlfriends leg was bleeding so we asked if we could rinse it to stop infection to which they refused! At that point we could not believe there customer service and we told them we were not happy with their service and human relations. They replied by yelling at us more and then threatened that we would have trouble to stay anywhere in the local area now! His wife was even worse and harder than him and told us to leave the property or else..... We left with my girlfriends leg bleeding which got infected and had to go to the hospital the following day. Thanks a lot for your kind service.

These people are a disgrace to New Zealand and all Kiwi's. As a local kiwi I'm ashamed to call myself one after this experience. DO NOT STAY HERE, Support good friendly kiwis that care for more than themselves and look after injured people.

Room Tip: Book elsewhere.

It's a standard camp ground really, clean facilities, maybe a little quiet and in the middle of nowhere for us, but it is in the middle of a national park!
