We were in a caravan with many other around us.far too expensive for the site and the lights not going on in the lounge until 7pm made for an unpleasant get together. Needs a major makeover. staff were amazing. Also having to pay extra for BBQ,spa & sauna.

Very friendly greeting on arrival. The room was small but very clean and inviting. The showers were great. Hot water and pressure was good. Other cabins below looked really cute. I would stay here again.

Musty tiny cabin. Smelt like smoke. Stains on carpet. Well overdue a make over that was needed 20 years ago. $75 is way over priced for the rickety bunk bed and poor facilities. Ps the photo of the playground is not part of the complex!

I was travelling solo, but the family facilities were incredible. The adventure playground nextdoor, the 2 min walk to the beach. The site really is set up for a great stay. Do not think you are in the centre of town though, it is quite a long drive in to the centre if that is where you want to be,...

Amazing staff, quite premises. Establishment is old but gives this peaceful, homely feeling, takes you back in time. We stayed in Fisherman's Flat which was cute little cabin, big enough to accommodate 2-3people. Beach on the walk-able distance is an add-on.

We stayed in a Ocean Hutt cabin for one night over the Easter Weekend. While the owners were very new and were not able to offer sightseeing suggestions, they were absolutely bubbly and accommodating. I loved that this was a family business as you could feel and see the amount of love they were putting into the place. The cabin...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin (lucky cabin 13), while visiting Whanganui for a business event. The beach was a short 5 minute walk away, and we were an easy 15 minute drive into the city. Our welcome was friendly, and the owner checked we had everything we needed. Free wifi was offered to us on check in: 5GB...

Cracking little campsite by the beach in Whanganui. A very well kept site with great facilities, everything is clean and tidy. Shower was hot and powerful which is always a bonus! We stayed for two nights. Free wifi is also a bonus considering the great price!

“We stayed in our motorhome, but saw inside units that were open for cleaning. Looks perfectly adequate and tidy. Good fish and chip shop opposite. The surrounding area housing might be fairly average, but you can't get much better value with reasonable rates, and good facilities.”
