Our first night in New Zealand and weren't sure what to expect, this park was great, facilities clean and staff were great! Very friendly. It was also easy to find which is a bonus! The park was nice and quiet. I would recommend this park to anyone looking for a place to stay. Thank you for making us feel welcome... More

Thank you for your feedback. We note your comments about the size of the showers. These are older units and the shower cubicles are not as spacious as modern units. If you remind us next time you stay, we can accommodate you in a unit with larger shower units. More

We spent two nights in a self contained cabin with good kitchen facilities. The location was perfect for us, not wanting to be in the CBD at Christchurch, but close to the main roads in and out of the city. As we rented a car, this place suited our circumstances. I would recommend a visit.
