We have stayed in the past but $48 for 1 night for a campervan is huge. Have always loved top 10 but if they are now opposition for NZMCA then we won't be back. The spa was not working and one ablution block shut down for some time.

It is always good to receive feedback from guests and we thank you for your time in doing so. We are sorry for the inconvenience with the spa being out of operation but due to a faulty thermostat we had to close it down while fixed the fault, the spa was not operational for approx 4 hours.

We arrived about 7 PM, which wasn't a problem because the office is open late. We got the Top 10 club card at the front desk's advice. It got us more data on the free wifi, saved us 10% on the stay, and also 10% off our whale watch tour the next day- score! Our 2-bedroom cabin had free parking...

We stayed in the self contained family unit, it was well appointed and had a nice modern bathroom. Close to main road and train tracks but we weren't bothered by the noise from either. Has a great games room that the kids really enjoyed and a good outdoor playground with jumping pillow. Would stay again.

After being on a 2 week rode trip around South Island and staying in everything from 5 star in Queenstown to 2 star in Twizel it was fantastic to finally arrive at our first accommodation that catered for children.

Perfect for an overnight stay. My family and I stayed in a cabin. Had everything we need, was clean, comfortable and warm and very close to kaikoura down, staff were lovely also. Only downpoint would be the train tracks being right behind our cabin. Very noisy and not good with young children. But overall would definitely stay again. Thank you...

The camp ground is just about on the beach. Very modern facilities and the grounds are well kept. An easy walk to town and attractions. It is part of the Top 10 Holiday Parks so the rates are reflected in this.
