We were expecting more but on reflection probably got what we paid for. The service is poor re interest and warmth and reception stunk of curry. The room is very small and basic and you hardly have room to move around the bed. The kitchen has a hob and mircrowave and an old fridge. The shower and toilet is tiny and the walls are like paper. The bed and pillows whilst clean were very uncomfortable but the worst is the heat and flies. There is a fan fixed to the wall but on the highest setting cannot be felt on the bed and as you have to shut the windows as they are infiltrated by trout flies so you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. To then have to pay ¢NZ 2 for a tiny milk and the wifi is weak and limit both in terms of speed and stability and usage is cent pinching.

Thank you for your review and feedback. We are only a 2.5-star holiday park who offer basic, affordable and practical accommodation. We acknowledge the heat and we are looking into inserting more measures to improve the comfort of every guest's experience during their stay with us and for that, we apologize. Unfortunately when our holiday park is very busy the internet/ WiFi tends to slow down due to the amount of people attempting to use it at a time and this is something we are looking into.

Nice place and good facilities! All you need for families: children area, hot pool for adultes, swimming pool, lake, etc. You can also make your own hot pool at the lake. Be carreful, it could be really hot!

Thank you for your positive feedback! We are so glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. Yes - some spots of the hot water beach are much hotter than others so we advise you to be very careful especially with little ones! We hope to see you again sometime in the future!

I came to check in, granted and hour and half early, however understood there was a charge and happy to pay, campervans typically leave at 10am and could see plenty of empty spaces. Dawn, who initially served us was very rude would not let me finish my sentence, I could not even ask her anything, she and raised her voice at me and told me to leave in front of other customers it was horrible and I just wanted to cry. We did not want to return back, but we had already paid and had little choice. Then to top it all off, a family parked their campervan the wrong way so we had no grass area to sit outside, not the campgrounds fault but it made our already bad experience worse.

Dear guests We are very shocked by your comment. Yes, we do have the policy for check-in after 2 pm which stated online as most holiday parks or motels do. The reason is our staff need take quite midday time to clean communal facilities, tidy up grounds, collect rubbish, etc. Even it is not safe for guests to walk on the wet slippy floor. Dawn, work at this holiday park for almost 20 years at her 70's. She loves the camp, loves all the guests very much. Some guests especially come back to us after they stayed here 10 or 15 years ago due to Dawn's great hospitality. We never have seen she lose temper for years. We can't understand what happened when you check in. But, apologize from all our team if Dawn did wrong on that day. Appreciate your patience and best regards,

Cancelled our remaining two nights after the first. Checked in (having paid through Expedia), then decided we wanted a bathroom in our (very basic) room. We were asked to pay ANOTHER 300 dollars for three nights, despite having spent 5 minutes on site!!! We had to stay the first night as we had to put the baby to bed. We decided to check out after one night and spend our money elsewhere and got a private spa and private bathroom for an extra 20 dollars a night. The internet is 300mb free and then a payment. Everything comes with an additional charge. We feel it was not clear that our room did not come with bathroom when we booked... not something I usually check, does this room have a toilet or shower...?)

We're sorry to hear your unpleasant experience within our holiday park whatever the reason is. On the website, the types of accommodation (whether a shower or toilet is included) is stated within, however, to those guests who do not have a bathroom in their room we have our communal facility which is allowed for every guest (kitchen, toilets, showers, etc). As a holiday park, we offer budget accommodation, cabin, as well as motel units. Unfortunately you booked our cheapest accommodation, which doesn't have bathroom. The reception did offer you to upgrade to ensuite room, but not extra $300, but extra $30-40 per night. The price is all online, they won't be able to cheat you. Our room price is $30-50 cheaper than motels around us in 5 mins walking distance (everyone easy check online). Therefore we do have some small charges apply if you need more service. Anyway, we will ask our reception to give more explanation to our guests under this kind of situation to avoid misunderstanding. Best regards,

The good: great location, easy to get to beach, nice layout, great hot tubs. The bad: very unhelpful staff and it felt like they wanted to charge us at every turn: they wanted a deposit to use 5 clothespins, Said it costs $5 to help us after hours when we were asking for change to use the washing machines. The worst was that they opened the kitchen more than an hour late with about 20 guests waiting and trying to get them to open it.

I am so sorry the kitchen was not unlocked at 7 am. We have new staff training and your comments have been passed on. We do charge a fully refundable deposit for the pots for the hangi oven, shovels for the hot water beach, pegs etc. This is the only way we can be assured that the equipment is bought back to us. When staff is called to the office after hours they are rightly paid. The $5.00 charge goes towards paying the staff overtime. I am pleased you found our Location, access to the beach, layout, and the hot tubs great.
