Long day travelling and looking forward to a shower. Should have got 7 minutes of hot shower got no minutes just ran cold. Smelt like open sewer in the cold shower. One next door not so bad but shouldn't have to move! Dump station really awkward to access. Numbers not easy to identify you have to go through ridiculous TV programs street names. Finally worked ours out between Peyton place and Ramsey st. Just put the numbers on the sites.

We were here in the off-season so it was very quiet, like a ghost town. We arrived at 7pm and the office was already closed but we had instructions to find a spot. The kitchen was huge and freezing cold. The bathrooms were cold too and the hot water was not working. In the morning the staff tried to remedy the situation and reimbursed our shower money. Definitley not my favorite holiday park.

Hi Martha, thankyou for your feedback, this winter has been a bit quiet, its given us a good chance to update the blocks, we have build ceiling in the blocks & kitchen which has made them alot warmer & looking into heaters for the bathrooms. We are new owners & working hard to upgrade the park.

Overcrowded, cramped, noisy and overpriced. I will not return during busy times (Dec, Jan, Feb; school holidays; public holiday weekends) as there were too many people for the space and facilities, which made for a frustrating, tiring stay. Toilets ran out of toilet paper by the end of the day. Not enough tables under shade, so many guests have to eat their meals at the tables in the sweltering sun. (The sail that provides shade over part of the dining area is also the only protection from rain, so I presume that on rainy days the guests who miss out on tables under the sail have to eat standing in the spaces between tables or wait hopefully for someone at a table to finish their meal and leave!) There was a radio station playing constantly in the kitchen and bathrooms - no way to turn it off - this made for a noisy, unpleasant environment. This is the most expensive campground I've ever stayed at but has nothing that other campgrounds don't have to justify the extra cost. The pool is lovely but so crowded that it's hard to keep out of each other's way moving around the pool. Some campsites are under trees but the entire double row of campsites that we were in has no shade at all. The row of campsites we were on is parallel to a busy road, separated by a hedge and footpath from the road: loud traffic noise including trucks was constant from 6am on.

The amenities were nice. Had to pay $1 for 6 minutes for the shower. $4 for the washing machine and dryer. The park was nice. Seemed like a family orientated park, but was a little pricy for a powered site, especially having to pay for the shower on top of the site fee. Other than that, it was a nice clean park.

While they were nice enough to give me a big discount (usually $46 a night but brought it down to $23 for me, travelling by myself) I didn't find much that I liked about this park, considering the (still) high price. It was massive, not in a great location (I'd expect this to dictate the price), had a very small TV room considering the size of the park, and you had to pay for a shower. Pros are that the wireless is fast (you still have to pay for it) there are lots of toilets and they are clean, the staff were all very nice and polite, and the bathrooms also had hairdryers and straighteners for those interested. A fine park to stay in if you just want to re-charge over night but not a destination in itself.

Good camp. Quite busy when I stayed but lots of facilities meant little wait for bbq and showers ($1 6 minutes but was a good hot shower). Warm pool and a free spa made or relaxing. My wife appreciated the nice gardens and children enjoyed riding around the big park on the go karts. Very impressed.

At last, a spacious Top 10 site - we got a great pitch for our motorhome under trees, with a view across the park to the stream, ducks etc. Musac from kitchen (as at Te Anau and other places) an unwanted intrusion - but it gets turned off fairly early. What looks like a permanent encampment of weird and wonderful mobile homes, old caravans etc in one section of site is strange and a bit of an eyesore but you get used to it. Staff helpful. We recommend OdysseyNZ for your wineries tour. Choose a pitch away from noisy road beyond the big hedge. Good facilities. We enjoyed our stay - but wished the site was in the more attractive Napier.

Camped here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The gardens and camp lay out are lovely. The facilities are well laid out and had everything we needed and wanted. The staff are friendly and the cleaners kept everything spotlessly clean. Its close to town, splash planet, Napier and winerys. We will be returning.

My family and I stayed over Christmas 2013 and what a great stay. The facilities were kept spotlessly clean, the staff seemed to go round and round in circles and couldn't do enough for us all. Even though there were hundreds in the park. The outdoor BBQ area , fire place, swimming pool, playground so well set up. Can't rave about the place any more, just can't wait to get. Back there. Thanks to all for making it our best family holiday yet.

Thanks for the great stay. Stayed with you for the mission concert and we really enjoyed it. The place was spotlessly clean, and hospitality was second to none. The swimming pool and FREE BBQ complex was amazing. And thanks for lighting the large outdoor fireplace for us all. we didnt have a problem with the metered showers, our stay was still cheaper then napier, and we never had to line up for showers because of. We will recommend this park to anyone and everyone See you again next year

Arrived 7.10pm. No one in reception. Note on door said find your own site and they would see us in the morning. So found powered site beside tree. Very pleasant. First impressions of ablution block..dirty tiled floor. Ladies shower very cramped with no room to put anything. Shower only went for a few minutes. Husband returned to van angry. Men's shower cold. Same again in morning. No hot water. For a 4Star camping ground it was very disappointing. Would avoid in future.
