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.

we were on our way to top 10 in Pokhara. Travellers from North Island need to break their travelling so 2 nights in Nelson was just right . We had a compact spot under welcome shady trees where we ate and talked outside It was just fine.

This summer we spent a fortnight in one of the kitchen cabins (far cheaper than a motel unit). The facilities were clean and adequate for our needs. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is close to central Nelson, and on a bus route.

Great kitchen units at a reasonable price. Beds comfortable. Would have been nice to have a coffee plunger in the units but other kitchen utensils that were needed were provided. Parking is at the front of unit. You need to bring your own towels.

Lovely site, good facilities, 30 minute walk into town for food/drink. Unfortunately the men’s toilet/shower block was being refurbished. The temporary replacement was ok but 2 showers and 2 toilets were not enough. The women’s shower/toilets were very good. Would stay again.

Stayed for several days while doing activities around Nelson. Campsite is convenient for town and large supermarket . Located beside junior school so quiet at night and cheery in daytime. Facilities excellent and staff were really friendly and helpful. Water/waste at all pitches- very convenient.

Great location for us, handy for where we wanted to go. Quiet, warm and comfortable. Helpful office staff for our concern about weather compromising our length of stay. (leaving early or needing to stay longer).

Great location for biking the taste trail. Bit of a walk into town - about 20 mins - but there are a lot of shops there! Room was neat, clean and kitchen had everything we needed. Shame the wifi wasn’t better.

We stayed one night and we had everyhting we needed. It is a small park as it is in the city, but it offers enough. I don't think it is meant to stay a full holiday if you are looking for nature and way more space.

It’s quite expensive for what’s being offered. Can’t compare to any of the top 10 we stayed, that’s for sure. Better campsites in the Nelson area, and cheaper! Wouldn’t stay nor recommend any friend for the price they ask.
