Everything about this place surprised us. The people...wow...they were all gorgeous! So super friendly and helpful. NOTHING was too much trouble. They went the extra mile..mile after mile! Our dear little 'log cabin' was not the newest, poshest, roomiest, modernest, luxuriant but we LOVED it. We had friendly cats and chickens come to the door each day to visit. The...

Wow - thank you very much for your wonderful review, that has made our day to hear such fabulous comments as we have worked very hard to upgrade our holiday park as much as possible over our winter months ready for the summer. This is only the start of a long "to do" list but it is very endearing to...

The cabins were separate, giving a little privacy, but the interior was very small. There was no way two people could get into the bathroom/toilet. Our unit could sleep up to 7 people but they would hardly all get into the lounge/kitchen. We did not expect top quality accommodation but thought the units were a bit over priced for the...

Thank you for your review and we appreciate the response. Apologies you found your accommodation not to standard and slightly cramped. We are endeavouring over the coming winter months (once our crazy summer time has passed) to continue our upgrades in our holiday park so our guests continue to enjoy their visit, whatever type of accommodation they require. If you...

Have stayed here several times and utilised both the camping grounds, kitchen, laundry, log cabins & log cabin with ensuites. this time stayed in the self contained unit.

Our ensuite cabin was an excellent price and very clean. Check in and out was a breeze, even outside of business hours. Reception staff were friendly and it was very easy to find our cabin and other park facilities. Only down side was that we were woken fairly early by wood chopping and other banging noises close to our cabin.

Thank you for your positive response and we appreciate the feedback. We are working extremely hard to make extensive upgrades to our Holiday Park so apologies for the early noises - on the upside our new cabins are looking amazing.

We booked a powered site online, when we arrived in the dark the reception was closed and they provided us with our check in information and site number in their after hours mailbox.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the location couldn't be better. You could ride to the MTB tracks but there was roadworks so it was a bit too dangerous to do at the moment. We paid a bit extra for our own ensuite room E10 and it was in a great spot it was right on the end of...

Thank you for your response and we appreciate the positive feedback. Apologies if you found your bed uncomfortable, we are expecting delivery of new beds shortly to help rectify this.

Stayed Monday 5th September for one night. We booked a powered site for a campervan. The park is a bit of a mess with no proper roads and bare grass everywhere.

This could have been okay, with wonderful and helpful check in staff and an ideal location within proximity of many of Rotarua's finest offerings. Unfortunately, the park is pretty tired and in need of a really good revamp. Additionally, while there was access to a few onsite thermal pools to while away niggles, these were constantly dominated by noisy rude...
