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.

This would have to be our favourite camping ground in the South Island. Both powered and non powered sites have great views and beautiful trees. Cool wee cabins dotted about. The owner was brilliant. The amenities were great. Just a lovely, relaxing spot!

Cute accommodation with a great communal kitchen and good showers. Great family friendly atmosphere. Lots to do in the outdoors when here as close to the Patea ferry and also walking tracks. There's also a little shop onsite for key items if you forget something

We stayed at the quirky campground and found the location exceptional and the service was excellent. It would be worth their while to maybe spruce up some of the cabins. The pricing is reasonable and the views over the lake is spectacular. If you are going to do the Doubtful Sound excursion, this would be the perfect launch pad.

Great location, almost on the shore of Lake Manapouri. Good facilities & friendly hosts. A large campground with varied locations/sites to choose from when campinging. Great showers with no time limit!!!! Near to the local hotel & bar. Definitely be staying here when in the area.

Quirky campground at very affordable rates for overnight with 6 berth motor home. Loved the views and the display of ageing Morris Minors'. Highly recommend and would go back. The office filled with antique military uniforms which seemed appropriate given it was Anzac Day

Not worth the price paid.Booked for two nights and only stayed one in a motel.No soap,less than a quarter of roll of toilet paper and dated decor.The TV was also so old you could hardly watch the screen due to flickering... The lady was happy to refund last night so thats something.

I stayed in a motel room with my 5 yr old. If you're looking for a place with mod-cons you'll be disappointed, but if you want a friendly, quirky holiday park with the most amazing views, this place will be great. My son loved the cars and old bits and pieces, and the old-style playground. The view from the dining table was wonderful, I could have stared at it all day. So handy to the lake we headed over the road to watch the waves every evening.

We were surprised to find that this holiday park wasn't sign-posted at all by the district council, what a shame, it is an absolute treasure. $40 for a powered site with our NZMCA discount. Free showers, clean bathroom and toilets, dump station, coin laundry. All notices in German, French and English. The whole park is just quirky, homely and welcoming, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great views over the lake.

I loved my stay! Perfect location across from the lake. My motel cabin was comfy and equipped with everything I needed. The host Joelle was very welcoming and accommodating. Overall the place had great character - would definitely stay again.

This place shows a lack of care and upkeep for guest experience. In brief, we concur with other negative Tripadvisor reviews. Double bed was past it's use by date and rolls to the middle. The hot water cupboard was positioned right beside my side of the bed covered with a curtain and gurgled at night. Unit was cold. We couldn't wait to move on and almost didn't stay the second night. Only thing great was the view of the lake however certainly didn't have any desire to hang out in the unit. Very poor wi-fi. Never again.
