As a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) we love our stay here. Clean and tidy and very comfortable warm cabins. The thermal’s pools are deliciously hot even in the middle of winter. Staff were very friendly. Close to town and mountain biking- we’ll be back!

I paid $20 per night for an unpowered tent site, and set up under a tree which was fairly private although the tent site is a field. There was unlimited access to hot pools, a decent kitchen and dining area, a living room with outlets, and showers. There are no utensils or cookware out, but available for rent. Lots of friendly Kiwis camping here as well, instead of just tourists. Close to mountain biking, which is why I picked the spot.

Booked two nights in a powered site for motorhome. Basically a dust bowl of a parking space next to a covered walkway. Communal facilities were extremely busy. Kitchen consisted of 5 kitchen bays, each bay with stove/stove with oven, bench space, and sink. Generally well laid out with lots of additional features, microwaves, toasters etc. Dining room was roomy, but busy. Bathrooms were dated and stainless steel shower tray was slippery. Kids pool was popular with kids not warm, and hot pools disappointing could be cleaner.

Good value to camp and unlimited use of thermal pools until close then able to access again early am before opening. Busy site, kitchen facilities ( hot plate took a long time to cook on), laundry facilities, drying room and hot showers and toilets. Great place to unwind after long day of driving. Food available to purchase from cafe a bit expensive and not that great.

Stayed in the non-powered camper area which was a field. Managed to park the van near a picnic table which was nice, otherwise you’re out in the open a tad. Kitchen decent, no cooking supplies though. Very close to the mountain biking which is nice. Simple and a bit dated but it is what it is.

The hot pools are nice but the facilities are dated and not all of the BBQs had gas connected so we had to hunt around to find one that was working to be able to cook. It's untidy previous guests old socks on the floor of the pitch. There aren't any views to admire of an evening.

Costs: 45$ powered campsite, 2persons, 1night
+ big kitchen with almost all electronic appliance
+ thermal hot pools
+ hot showers, no extra charge
+ bathrooms and kitchen clean
- strong smell
- paid wifi
- no charm, didn’t feel cozy
All in all a good stay for a night but not more.
