A perfect two nights-stop for our family! Budget but still clean, and the owner is outstanding. Very friendly and really wants to help - very appriciated! The bbq area is nice, and we enjoyed a bath in the hot tub after a long day on the roads. Very close, five minutes walk, to the beautiful Whangarei Falls. Dont miss!

Hey Ida T., We put a great deal of time into renovating the hot tub over the winter, so we are glad you were able to enjoy it while you were here. Hope you are enjoying your time in Northland. Thank you for your review.

We stayed here for two nights. Facilities are very acceptable - good kitchen, very nice outside dining area set in the garden campgrounds, excellent toilets and showers - and the owner goes the extra mile to give helpful suggestions. Excellent value for money.

The rooms are very, very clean, the kitchen is large and has good drinking water, and the bathrooms are clean as well - but one of the showers is absolutely terrible. I don't know if it was the timing or if it was just bad, but there was so little water coming out of the showerhead that it did absolutely...

Hello Imercerpaiva, We are glad you enjoyed the kitchen and the rooms and the rest of the park. Thank you for letting us know about the showers. We don't usually use them ourselves, so it is useful to know when they need attention. We just renovated them over the winter, and will have to ask the plumber to come back...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family-run backpackers and holiday park in a semi-rural setting two-minutes' walk away from the beautiful Whangarei waterfalls and scenic walking tracks. Stroll to town along bush-lined riverside walks or laze the day away beside the swimming pool. Evenings are for soaking in the hot tub and sharing stories around the BBQ. Our aim is to provide clean, comfortable accommodation in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Located 5kms north east of Whangarei City centre on the Twin Coast Highway, we provide an ideal base for diving and exploring the Poor Knight Islands. Beautiful coastal beaches and Tutukaka with its marina are a short drive away. We can organise diving, snorkelling and kayaking at the Poor Knights with arranged transport from the front gate available. Local bus stops, shops and a supermarket are within a short walk. Internet Provided. CityLink Bus# 3 and 3a bus stop 300m down the road. We look forward to having you stay with us. ~Martin and Team ... more   less
