Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great place to stop - we stayed 2 nights in an RV. Best internet coverage we've found on a campsite! Toilets and showers were very clean. Good location - just a 5 minute walk into the town for food etc. Bit noisy as near a main road but didn't really keep me awake.

The site is close to a road and trucks were roaring past all through the night plus there is a railway yard and there seemed to be a lot going on over night. We had an early but fairly sleepless night as were up at 4 to swim with Dolphins!

I booked this hotel due to its proximity to the train station as I was doing a one night in Kaikoura on the way to Christchurch on the scenic rail. I can't recommend the stop if you are doing the rail ($10NZD charge on train fare) and this hotel. I was greeted by the most comfortable little cabin with an extremely generously sized bathroom and front porch. It felt like home if only for a night and was walking distance from the train station and to the main Kaikoura town with the excursions. The staff was friendly and helpful in guiding activity suggestions while in Kaikoura and the facilities were clearly taken care of with pride. I felt like I could have moved right in. My accommodations had a private bathroom but all cabins appeared to be very well kept and I did use the shared bathroom once after checkout and it was clearly well-maintained. I would recommend to all friends and family stopping in Kaikoura and staying at Top 10.

We really liked this place and there were some great restaurants nearby. I booked on Orbitz, but the description and confirmation never informed me you have to rent towels. I guess if you book direct the park lets you know. It was clean and comfy. We even did our laundry here - they have a clothesline if you want to hang your stuff to dry.

What an awesome park, so clean and shared facilities are the best. BBQ area awesome. Pool Awesome. This was very close to all the local sight seeing areas that I needed. Although I had pre-booked Fishing Tours it was only the fact a helicopter kept taking off from behind the park that I decided to take a helicopter tour. The grounds are right in the middle of all that was happening.

Very clean but not much space to spread out. Located between a major hwy and train tracks/helipad. Very noisy at night with trains travelling close on one side of the campground & freight trucks on the other side.

This site is well laid out and very relaxing. It is surrounded by tall fir trees with one way in and out of the park. There is a large kitchen for preparing meals and washing up. The showers are a treat to use. It's a bit of a walk to the supermarket but easy to drive to. Highly recommended.

Noisy site next to road. Also noise from other campers after 10 pm. Fridges in communal kitchen had food in them dated Dec 2023 (now Feb 2024!). Spoke to reception about this - reply was they were too busy to look at them. A health hazard indeed. Overall it's a satisfactory site to use as a base for whale, dolphin tours .

Very poor customer service Charged extra to credit card that disclosed. I bought it up with reception and she just laughed it off saying it’s standard practise which is not true at all. Wasn’t interested in sorting or forthcoming with any information. Also couldn’t understand the receipt herself and had to get someone else to explain it to her.

The staff/owners make you very welcome on arrival and the cleanliness and presentation of the camp is perfect. We will definitely be staying there again. Central location so can walk or cycle to your favourite cafe/bar.
