Overpriced $56 for a powered site for 2 people. Have stayed in better for $36. Facilities were not that clean and the kitchen was taken over by people from the self contained cabins ?
No wonder there were only 3 other campers here for the night.

24 hours open very big but enough space for everything more than 10 showers, kitchen all the night and free wifi, campervan without electricity 21 dollars per person, and it is inside the city!

The most expensive camping I've stayed in 40 days. 49 nzd for a tent site.

I checked in without booking, and I had to make a one-day chargeback, but I was denied.

Could only do the chargeback 24 hours before check-in.

In the kitchen there are no pots, dishes, etc.

There are no rules for noise. 2am there were people partying in one of the rooms.

I do not recommend this camping to anyone.

Great service and facilities. Just note there are no pots or pans or utensils in the shared kitchen, you need to provide your own.

One of the best campsites for facilities we stayed in New Zealand. The site we had for our motorhome was very open, however we were lucky to be here off peak so that didn’t affect us so much. The staff and other reviews mentioned a 5 minute drive into Napier city centre; it is also a very easy 20 - 30 minute walk. The restaurant onsite was open and served what looked like pub meals. I would imagine in peak time this place would pack you in like sardines however we lucked out and we had a lot of space and the campsite was relatively quiet. Also easy to get the local wineries via bikes which they hire on site.

We usually do unpowered or powered sites while traveling around NZ, but decided to opt for a kitchen cabin this time. Arrived late but the staff were really friendly. 5 mins drive to Napier centre, clean facilities and nice room. 24hour reception area, and large communal kitchen and outdoor area. However, some points off as the wifi was not working at all, even though it was free, and the tv didn't work either. Turned on the bedroom lights which blew out seconds later too. I did visit reception to see what was going on, but was told that work is being done in the area we had rented, so everyone was having issues. There was nothing she could do about it till the manager came in the morning. Tried at half 9 the next morning but still didn't work. Was woken up at 6.30am as the walls are thin and could hear people walking around and making brekkie in the next room. The pool is lukewarm, and didn't end up using it in the end. And in my opinion, it was very overpriced.

One of the most expensive places we stayed, well maintained and clean facilities, plenty for the kids to keep amused, lost 1 point for pricing.
