Stayed here long term. Clean kitchens and toilets. Great location in park like surrounds and next to stream. Friendly staff too. Very good value for money. They have a great spa pool and a small swimming pool in summer. No sulphur smells unlike the rest of Rotorua

We were booked here by mistake and arrived late. On arrival the owner screamed several times at us "can't you see the No Vacancy sign". After he said this a few times he realised we had a booking and showed us to the site. I scuffed a bit of gravel with the van on a tight corner and he was... More

This reviewer is untruthful. It s not my fault you were booked at the wrong place. You fail to mention that I tried to change the booking for you and also offered to cancel the booking at no cost to you but you insisted on staying here even though it was many miles out of your way. Its not my... More

This place is a little gem! A beautiful setting on the Trout Stream. It has very clean amenities. This holiday park is small so you are guaranteed privacy and tranquility. The owners are lovely and very helpful. A great place to unwind and relax, a private spa is available to book which too is also very clean. A bonus is... More

What a great little spot to stay. Beautiful setting by a little stream with free access to kayaks and fishing at a small cost to hire a reel and purchase a license. Clean amenities. Friendly and very helpful staff, even organised our pick up and drop off from our evening activities. Well worth a stay if your passing through.

We have a spot to park our motorhome just by the river. We were accompanied by ducks and swans. That was so amazing. Very nice environment and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We tried to catch some trout for couple days, but out of luck LOL ... We had an amazing time in this holiday park, thank you!

We arrived here fresh from a trip to Hobbiton and despite the owner having to give us the bad news that our trip had been cancelled he was only to happy to spend the time advising us of the other activities we could do to fill the time. The rain didn't stop in our time there but we still enjoyed... More

I have stayed here previously over a long weekend in tents, this time we booked a 1 bedroom motel unit. We were made very welcome when we arrived and my daughter was given an ice block. Our accommodation was well appointed and we had everything we required, it also backed onto a little garden with BBQ and seating. The setting... More

Bearing in mind that one cannot buy or dine out on trout in New Zealand, to eat fresh trout you must first catch your own. This is the perfect spot to fly fish because the Waiteti River forms one of the boundaries of the Park and you can fish down to the lake from the bank. Surrounding rivers also have... More
