Nice new cabins, clean and tidy. Close to town. Booked from previous park. When we checked in, we asked if we could not have one of the cabins that backed directly onto the very noisy main road as the semi trailers thundering up and down the road would keep me awake. Explained I was a light sleeper, and also the...

Sorry to hear that your stay was not a happy one On reflection our staff should have offered a free upgrade for light sleeper

Great place to stay. We had been on the road for 4 days without a shower so booked in. Amenities were of high standard, showers and toilets super clean. Laundry didnt take as long as other places. Everything you need and a short walk to town...super friendly lady on the counter. Highly recommend to all!

Very well set out with very friendly helpful staff, free wifi, free spa pool and exceptionally clean facilities. Great range of cabin configurations. Handy to the township and shops. Would definitely recommend.

Great relaxing stay with everything you need. Perfect playground for the kids (and the adults!), heated pool, awesome private spa, games room, clean amenities and only a short walking distance to town. They also have go karts for hire around the camp which I thought was pretty cool. Across the road from Hislops which do amazing organic food and drink....

I could hear a bit of road/rail noise and being a duplex it didn't have much soundproofing between the shared walls of the adjoining cabin. It was acceptable for our one night stay and had all the basics but would depend a lot on your neighbours.

Nice facility's, friendly staff were helpful on arrival. We stayed in a studio cabin, plenty of space for the two of us. Basic facilities, a heater to keep warm on cold nights. Only have airline grade coffee and long life milk, so bring your own if you want something better. There are a few reaustraunts of reasonable quality within a...

Reviewed 4 April 2016

We stayed one night on a powered site and found the campsite to be satisfactory without anything being very good. All the facilities were satisfactory and the TV lounge appeared to be fairly new. The local town/village is an easy 10 minute walk but there is not much to see. The beach is very much the same as all the...

Thanks for your comments Not sure why some cafes were closed Perhaps the ones you found were only opening for evening meals

Reviewed 2 April 2016

I get that it's a little town in the middle of nowhere. But $170 for a motel room is just too much for what you get. In the night there is a lot of noise. Cars and weird sirens. Plus there was always someone smoking outside. So the smoke would get into the room. Cabins are placed very close to...

Good clean site and facilities, we were travelling in an RV. Helpful friendly staff. Fun jumping pillow in the playground. Clean kitchen, nice hot showers: free, 5 minutes' duration. Wifi a bit weedy, free but quickly ran out of allowance. Central location, easy to walk to lovely beach.

Although only 1km from Kaikoura centre the site is sandwiched between the very busy Route 1 and the east coast rail line. Goods trains run through the night and on occasions stop adjacent to the site with the engine running. Facilities on site were good.
