We tried to find a hostel on our route and this one had the highest rating at TripAdvisor, Google and Camping NZ. Unfortunately our expectations were definitely not fulfilled. The living complex is very old as well as the facilities and the kitchen which are separated from the rooms. There are also many spiders and crickets in the facilities. We had no access to the WiFi in our room. Even though the owners are nice, we wouldn't recommend to stay there.

That is such a lovely place! All the facilities were so clean and the owner was so nice and friendly. Even the kitchen is perfect and had everything you need. Totally recommend!

Just great!!! Very quiet and nice camp. The owners are totally friendly and helpful. We have paid just 18 dollars for 4 adults for a powered site. Best price ever. Wifi is also for free and we could help ourselves in the vegetable garden.

Based on staying in a self contained caravan on a powered site this is a park with very nice grounds. Water, power, and a waste drain in the corner of most campsites. Very good nightly rate! Very clean and tidy facilities. Free Wi-Fi.

What a fabulous place to stay. Very peaceful, extremely hospitable people, couldn't do enough for us. We had only planned on staying a night, but ended up staying four . Really clean and tidy facilities and grounds, with free veggies available to all guests - they even sell free range eggs and fresh bread! Absolutely loved the place and will be back.
