Travellers' Choice
Rotorua's only TOP 10 Holiday Park located on the stunning Blue Lake, offering quality accommodation from Lakeview Motel units to spacious powered & non-powered camping sites. Blue Lake TOP 10 is the perfect home away from home for you and your family to relax and unwind. Awake to the chorus of native birdsong, start your day with a walk through native forest followed by a dip in the crystal clear waters of Lake Tikitapu. Our holiday park is a short 10 minute drive from the centre of Rotorua offering our guests the best of both worlds - close to attractions and shops yet far enough from the bustling city to enjoy the peace and quiet and avoid the sulphur smell!

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.

LOVE Blue Lake Top 10. Very close to bike rides, close to town, or a gorgeous spot to stay & relax. Always very clean & tidy. Staff are friendly & attentive. Relaxed atmosphere, and the most family-friendly park we've ever stayed in. Fantastic holiday spot, we'll be back!

The actual cabin ensuite was very very small, as wide as the shower with the toilet at the other end. The kitchen sink did not drain away as it should. the toilet did not always flush everything away on the first flush. The back window frame was rotting. The TV did not work properly and we had office assistance to get it working on our first day. On our 3rd morning we could not get it to go again, but let it go as we were leaving that day. anyway. The best thing was it was clean.As for value for money if $580.75 siuts you for 3 nights go right ahead!

A Top 10 park, that had it all. Great facilities, and plenty of play activities for children. On a walk around the park we noticed the variety of options for visitors, from camping, campers, cabins, and the tenting experiences - all set up - you can just enjoy the experience - no setting up or packing up! The safari tenting option looked awesome too!

Park is represented as something special. The position, right in front with the lake, is indeed beautiful. However the park, to me appears extremely dated and run down for $241 per night. It is decades since it has seen a paint brush. I would not go back again or recommend it.

Kia ora Sue, Thank you for the time taken to submit a review, In the past twelve months we have undertaken renovations and additions to the park, to update specific rooms and generally around the park; this includes, full interior and exterior painting and renovation of the Tikitapu Motels and installation of new blinds, installation of improved wifi bandwidth and connectivity network, installation of Four brand new Glamping tents, building a bike track complex on an unusable area of the campsite and so many more small upgrades and maintenance tasks to list. The next twelve months has the same level of improvements scheduled in as well. We hope to see you again so we can demonstrate the progress we achieve.

The Blue Lake Top Ten Park is set in beautiful surroundings, the park is well maintained and the facilities are so clean. fall asleep listening to native bird song, and awake to fresh air and the smell of the bush. Cross the road for a swim in the clear Blue Lake, or walk around the lake on a well trodden path.
