This pretty little campsite is like rolling back to the 1950's with its beach hut style cabins and 50's style amenities block. A perfect setting for anyone wanting to visit Queenstown but doesn't want to stay in the town itself. We stayed in one of the glamping tents which was very comfortable and cozy despite a storm on one of...

Stayed 6nights in a cabin. Very quaint cabins. Older but comfortable and warm with everything you need in them. Lovely stream running right by the door. Lots of mobile buses staying for one or two nights and the option to hire a glamping tent or a motel room also. We did day trips to Arrowtown, Queenstown and Milford sound. A...

Booked two nights here at short notice - really wanted Queens town but couldn't get in. A lovely little site. We had one of their, clearly very new, 'yurts' (though they are not a genuine yurt; smaller and no wooden side wall frame). But it is carpeted, couple of chairs, comfortable bed, heater, power, toiletries, ...... Quite delightful. Kitchen was...

We booked a yurt to stay in on our way from Queenstown to Milford Sound. The yurt was absolutely gorgeous for a glamping experience, the grounds had a charming setting next to a cute creek. Unfortunately the crazy weather upset our plans and the creek became a torrent which meant we had to evacuate the yurt. The staff were amazing,...

Hi Megan, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Kingston Holiday Park, we apologise for the weather the day you checked in to stay in one of our glamping tents! Yes, the unexpected flash flood completely shut down our park for a few days, but our team worked hard to completely dry and clean everything and we are now...

We found this a great little motel room with good quality appliances and a nice little kitchen. Kids enjoyed the bath,the room was warm on a cool night. Great to see the Lotus Belle tents available for hire as well, they looked well kitted out with a heater if required. Found the staff helpful and the rooms clean and tidy.

The location is great because we drove from Queenstown that morning to Milford sounds. It was nice not to drive another hour to Queenstown after at least 8 hours of driving. The motel has everything you need. Our room has a jacuzzi spa so my kids (and me afterwards) had a lovely bath time after getting soaked at Milford sounds...

We chose to stay in the wee miners cottage. It was tiny bit tidy and clean, the showers were nice and hot and not metered. There was an electric jug with coffee and tea sachets. The cottage only had a double bed, how did people survive before bigger beds appeared??? But we enjoyed our experience just doing something different. Probably...

This is really a camp site. More suitable for camp cars. Rooms they give you are not suitable for renting out winter time. Their heaters are weak, and they are switching off automatically every hour. Houses have no insulation and in few minutes they cool down to outside temperature. Somebody have to stay up to switch heater all the time....
