We stayed in a one bedroom motel unit. It was exceptionally clean and functional. The host was very helpful as well. We wanted to stay an extra night but they were fully booked. Based on this stay we will look for more Kiwi Holiday Parks along the way.

Beautifully maintained park, with a friendly and helpful greeting at check in. This is a very popular park for Motorhomes and caravans, so be sure to book ahead or you may be disappointed. A great location from which to explore the region.

Small camp site close to the city centre, friendly welcome by lady at reception, even showen to our site. Sadly overheard a rather loud cleaning lady abusing her fellow staff member! Not something you want to hear while on holiday. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay.

After a long drive north from Christchurch we were fortunate to find this park in Riccarton. The owner is a very pleasant man who made us feel very welcome. First impressions are of cleanliness, pleasant surroundings and new well-cared for facilities. This is not a large park but that for us was a plus. Quiet and friendly.

We started our 2 week trip around the South Island here for 2 nights. Very impressed with our apartment (I think it was the only one of its kind there), new full kitchen, 2 bed (Kids room had bunks + double). Friendly staff & close enough drive into town. Great private courtyard/grass area too. Kids enjoyed the trampoline.

Handy location on Blenheim Rd which is a major road into the inner city. Close to Riccarton Mall, small friendly park with great facilities in a compact space. Good kitchen and Tv room, free showers, helpful staff.

We stayed here for one night on our way south. We received a friendly and warm welcome - there was even a beautiful cat hanging around that came and said hello! (As a crazy cat lady I loved this!). The actual campground is small, but packed full of everything you could need - rubbish disposal, car wash/cleaning station, dump station,... More

Great campsite in Christchurch! We stayed in a powered site with our camper which was close to the amenities and yet really quiet.The kitchen and bathrooms were really clean and tidy with a box of 'free stuff' for kitchen basics for travellers. Really helpful staff and friendly atmosphere. The showers were a bit small but they are free with plenty... More

This is a good small campsite close to christchurch city centre. The facilities were clean and well kept. The showers are included and the tv lounge comfortable. Decent spot for first and last nights of a south island campervan trip.
