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.

This was our first stop and we only stayed one night so didn't realise how good it was till we stayed at other places...
Setup of bathroom area was the best on our trip - separate but private toilets, showers and basins, showers had a shelf and hanging space, free showers, lots of hot water.
Communal picnic tables scattered between vans was great as were the grassy patches. Felt like a spacious place even though it was full.
Central location being an easy walk into town and whale watching site
Shame we didn't get to use the pool or sauna
Free wifi

We had a great stay here. The site is ideally located for the town and an easy 10minute walk for the whale watching departure. You can hire bikes - which we would recommend - to cycle up to the peninsula and see the seal colony. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were excellent - showers were hot and powerful and there is a really generous shared kitchen space along with several bbqs. Would definitely recommend.

We (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed 5 nights over Christmas in a 2 bedroom motel room. Awesome to have a fully equipped kitchen with great quality pots/pans/etc and a full sized fridge. There was even a handheld beater to whip cream for the Christmas pavlova! Great little BBQ area with Weber BBQs. Kids loved the jumping pillow/playground area and we even had a dip in the pool. Room was spacious, clean and bed was so comfortable. We loved sitting out in our 'front yard' to watch the sun set over the mountains! Reception staff were all very friendly and helpful with booking tours etc. Great laundry facilities with washers and dryers. Location was great - a short distance one way to a large supermarket and a short distance the other way into town (both walkable if necessary). Kaikoura itself is a gem of a town, plenty to see and do for a little family. The kids spent hours exploring the pebbles and driftwood on the shore and we did some great walks with amazing views of the coastline. Highly recommend both Kaikoura and the Top 10.

The reception people were great but felt that the rooms were not up to other Top 10 facilities that we stayed in during our trip. The beds in the rooms were not of good quality and the bunks didn't feel very secure. It was also odd that we needed to pay a rental for cutlery and crockery. It was a great location, but just lacking in a few basic things.

Thanks for your review Pip, we appreciate your comments and understand that you felt our standard cabins didn't meet your expectations. Our standard cabins that you booked via booking.com are the cheapest available we have within our park. I can understand you may not be in favor of these room due to them having bunk beds which I'm sure your group did not want to climb up after a hard day riding your bicycles. We have many different room types which come with various differing degrees of facilities for example the next category up from the room type you selected has all the crockery and cutlery. It does outline what is included in the room on both our website and booking.com's including an up to date photo accurately depicting the room. When booking rooms online especially through an agent like booking.com it always pays to red the description thoroughly to ensure you book the right room that will met your requirements. Kind regards

We stayed two nights on a powered site after picking up our caravan from Ashburton. We got a drive thru site 6 & 12 (gravel on grass) which made it easy to park-up our 8.5m (total length) caravan, power & water supply on this site were located on the northern side, dump point is located near the amenities. The park was immaculate, facilities clean & modern. Staff were super friendly & helpful. The location of the park is within walking distance from town, whale watching tour centre & although main road & rail line in close proximity, we did not note any high noise, there is a buffer of trees/shrubs bordering the park. Although we did not use the free hot tub, you can reserve a time with reception, worth the price, would recommend & stay again.

We had a great experience staying here. Our very good sized 2 bedroom apartment had absolutely everything you could ask for including a great washing machine & dryer. The amenities around the camp were fantastic especially the playground with a jumping pillow and a really cool music area that our 6 year old had so much fun with. The shower head that hung from the middle of the very large shower was a real treat after a long day travelling as it was just sooooo relaxing. The beds & couch were very comfortable We look forward to coming back. You will not be disappointed staying here :)

I was blown away with Kaikoura Top 10 Holiday Park - for such a large park, I felt as though I had plenty of privacy and was well attended to by staff. The park is kept in great shape, clean and well maintained. Our studio felt very private, it had a large bathroom, nice little veranda, outdoor seating and car park. The Queen bed was very comfortable and the shower pressure was insane - it could blow your scabs clean off! We will absolutely be back again.

Stayed in the cabins with just a bed - planned to use the camp kitchen but it didn’t have very much in the way of useful facilities for us travelling without a camper full of kitchen tools. Beds were not as comfortable as we would have expected. Definitely not recommended for those who’re hiring a car and self driving around without their own crockery/cutlery and cooking utensils. Staff were very friendly though and the location is great for access to both town and the beach.

Clean, tidy, well managed camping ground with very modern facilities. Stayed in our campervan a couple of times this winter. Stand-out feature had to be the shower/toilet block which had a heated tile floor!!! So nice and warm to have a shower in. Friendly kiwi management.
