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.

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.

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.
