We foudn the holiday park completely by accident, but so glad we did. First impressions looking at the place weren't the best. But with friendly staff, great showers along with supersized bath towels and quite possibly the comfiest bed I have ever found it was an awesome place to stay the night. Yes the cabin was small, but I find when it comes to sleeping a bed and a roof are the most important things. This may not be your 5 star accomadation, but niether does it have a 5 star price. There was a small play area and lots of space for our four year old to burn off some energy. Hot (and powerful) showers, and the lady that checked us in recommended the truck stop for dinner, again, not my first choice, but wonderful food at a great price. We only could stay the night, but I think if you were exploring the area this would make a great place to stay for longer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is a historical campground. The original base for the 1950s power project, it was once home to hundreds of Italian workers who were involved in what was then the biggest engineering project in New Zealand. For the casual camper looking for a quiet spot away from the main road, here you'll find large, individually-hedged sites with plenty of lovely shady trees, each having a tap and a picnic table. Older-style, well-scrubbed amenities include a basic kitchen with lots of pans, crockery and cookware, ablutions with free curtained showers, a coin operated laundry, and a drying room available for a small charge. The covered deck off the kitchen is a beautiful spot to sit and eat your meal, and you can use the fish cleaning sink and outdoor BBQ s to cook up your catch of the day. Too tired to cook? Town is within walking distance for a takeaway or a meal. Working towards being an Eco friendly camp ground, there are ample recycling stations, a bin in the kitchen for your organic waste that goes to the worm farm, and a herb garden is also being established by the kitchen.
