Quiet well-maintained park easy 800m walk into the city. Powered and unpowered sites. Quality bedroom units with bedding, TV, heater etc, 2 with ensuites and 2 without bedding for the more budget conscious travellers. High pressure showers, very well equipped kitchen-dining-lounge area, laundry, free Wifi voucher. Three things our guests regularly comment are how much they enjoy being able to park-up and stroll into the city, the very high standard of cleanliness and how very comfortable and relaxed they feel staying with us. We really are en route to everywhere! Just metres from the Southern Scenic Route - east to the Catlins & west to Fiordland, State Highway 1 - north to Dunedin & and south to Bluff and the Stewart Island ferry terminal, and just a few blocks from the city centre. Come check us out. We look forward to welcoming you!

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.

Needs a good clean, kitchen was really dirty especially toaster, fridge and microwave. Room was dusty and smelt bad. Furniture was broken...chair and bookcase. No chair to sit on outside the room. Curtains were shabby and dirty. The bed was comfortable but the bedding was old. Access code for the kitchen which I couldn't make work. Outside was dated and nothing was maintained, a cat got in the kitchen ripped the carpet up and left a inch of hair on the window sill. I wouldn't stand on the carpet without jandals. No one was there when I arrived and staff weren't visible or friendly. I was tempted not to stay when I saw the state of the place but didn't like the chances of getting a refund.

After 2 and half years travelling in our camper around the South Island this is by far the dirtiest camp we have encountered. Kitchen was filthy with fat up the walls. Dishes in rack both dirty and clean. The pile of recycling and rubbish was huge and overflowed the bins. I hate to think what the cabins would be like.

Nadia A wrote a review Dec 2022
The purpose of this review is to warn others from staying here. My partner and I booked a spot online and arrived one hour later. We had paid a deposit to ensure we had a spot. There were roadworks that blocked the entrance: believe me when I tell you there was absolutely no possibility of entering the campground. We learned that the roadworks are not all day, but they were in force when we got there, and NO mention from the campground warning us not to arrive after a particular hour. I wrote to them the next day, explained the above, and asked for a refund. I then wrote twice more over the next month. Not once was there any acknowledgement, and no refund has been issued. I would like to encourage people reading this review to instead stay where we ended up staying: it is far nicer. Invercargill Holiday Park & Motels at 77 McIvor Road.

Very happy with our overnight stay here. Hosts friendly and helpful. Was great to have the hot showers and do our washing here after a few days without both. The beautiful weather helped. The kids loved interacting with other guests and finally being able to watch a bit of NBA

We stayed one night before flying to Stewart island. The host kindly collected us from invercargill airport for free. When we arrived Najib upgraded us to an ensuite cabin! We were so happy because we had booked a shared bathroom cabin and the weather was so cold and bathroom quite a distance. Najib was very pleasant and kind carrying our bags and taking us back to the airport next morning. Thanky6for everything. We would deffinately recommend.

This camp has very friendly managers. The space is not big but I think it's cute and OK for what you want. Showers and toilets are clean. A code for the showers is fine and 7 minutes is enough time to do your hair and wash yourself. We stayed here 3 nights and we will stay an other night when we come back from Stewart Island. The location is excellent. Just walk to the downtown area and all the shops and restaurants are there. I love the white cat. He just popped into our van and enjoyed our company. I recommend this camp.

Not one to usually complain, but we should have kept driving. Very old and run down, need to enter codes to use a hot shower which only last 7 minutes. Need to enter code for kitchen. Broken hairdryer. Tight parking for van. Very basic facilities. Old cars and junk on premises.

Just stayed one night here in a campervan after a long trip. I agree with other posts not like the photos. But all in all amenities were clean but dated. Pretty much old school camp ground Large kitchen and lounge
