Just a quick overnight stay after flying in just after midnight.
Key and map tapped to reception window was a different way to do after hours check in but it worked fine.
Room was simple which was fine but most importantly it was nice and clean.
Let us to check out a little late as we were waiting for our campervan to arrive which was much appreciated.
Good alternative that is really close to the airport.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Ok site with older facilities. Bathrooms ok though hard to tell if the showers were occupied or not. Tired kitchen but serviceable enough. Convenient location after flying to the airport.
Previous review from Mike says it all... :-)
Great place to start or end your campervan holiday. If you are starting, check out the kitchen, for left over salt, pepper, toilet paper etc. etc.
If you are ending : the drive to Britz/Maui/Jucy/Apollo is just 5 minutes.
We stood at a grassy site (no. 48), where power was not working and sites were not very level.
Burger King is at the fuel station, a few minutes walking.
03Nov18. 1 night for 2, powered site $40. Our last van night before we go home. Friendly welcome. Reasonable price.
Maybe not the most salubrious place we have been to in 8 weeks but perfectly ok as a last stop. Don’t forget where it is, near the hire depots and in an industrial area.
Car/van wash area. Cold water, bucket, brushes and rags. Hose pipe not quite long enough and it leaked when pointing up so I got a bit wet. However, it was there and didn’t cost extra. Try not to splash the people in the adjacent cabin.
Van sites are gravel, ours was level with power and water. Picnic tables too on the grass area between pitches.
The toilet/shower block nearest reception is undergoing an upgrade and was supposed to be finished by 2nd November so should be soon. The other one is ok.
Shower is push button. Pre set temperature that is good, no messing about trying to get it right. 6 minutes followed by 3 minutes delay. Rush through and enjoy standing in the hot shower!
Plenty of rubbish and recycling bins.
Kids play stuff and a swimming pool for the summer.
Free WiFi. Unlike others we had no problems with it at all.
Laundries with choice of hot or cold washes!
Outside the park is a commercial vehicle cleaning area with vacuum hoses at a good price.
There is also a Z fuel station. Perfect for the final refuel. Don’t forget your 6cents a litre off from New World. Other supermarkets are available. My wife particularly likes Countdown for their muffins!
Unfortunately there are no near bars or shops. Either a long walk or you have to drive. Z fuel do have a shop with the usual fuel station goods. No beer.
Noise. A bit of road and plane but not so bad. The high revving cars late at night were more annoying. Hopefully an unusual episode.
Not a place we would stay for longer than the last night of our trip but all things considered a good option.
Good place for 1st arrive and last, have a camper wash area
Nice park, very close to the airport. Good facilities, clean showers and very nice staff. A good choice.
2 adults on a powered pitch mid March. We stayed due to the proximity to the airport as we were returning our camper there the next morning. We were fully aware of the proximity to the motorway and airport, and hence accepted we would be disturbed but traffic - which we were. I would only recommend if you desperately need to be so close to the airport, otherwise I’m afraid this place was soulless, and I’m sure better alternatives exist.
Dan was very helpful however in helping us with the terrible WiFi, which still didn’t really work...
Showers available but I couldn’t bring myself to use it, it wasn’t the cleanest or the most inviting.
Not worth the money, you’re paying for the closeness to the airport, and little else.
