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 place is probably the nicest holiday park in NZ - friendly staff, quiet and clean with newly and nicely remodeled abultions block with plenty of showers and toilet stalls, kitchen with pots and pans and actual sharp knives to use which while we haf are own stuff, were actually in good nick and handy to use, nice new looking playground & pool, even a private 30 min hot tub option! Very tidy and bright grounds backing onto park and river/heritage walks.

We stayed in a standard cabin which although in an older bldg was clean and comfy with extras like a fridge, sink, kettle and dishes (not normally seen in a std cabin in holiday parks), and the new motel units and deluxe cabins look very nicely done.

We stayed at another holiday park in New Plymouth during our trip that was more like a typical holiday park - bigger, with half the amount of (older) toilets and showers for easily 4x the people, didn't have all the amenities like kitchen stuff, food in the kitchen sink drains, no pool and no playground, long walk to the bathroom, disinterested staff...and expensive. It really reinforced how nice and great value the Stratford Holiday Park is!

Stayed in a Kitchen cabin for 2 nights from January 25th to 27th. The Holiday park is in a perfect location for easy access to the Mt Egmont carpark, Stratford Township and nearby stream and parkland. The facilities of the Holiday park were very well kept and offered great amenities for the price. I was surprised that the cabin came with a full size fridge/ freezer unit (rather than a mini bar fridge) as well as a TV. I never used the pool but I was also surprised that a Holiday park at this price provides it. I definitely look forward to returning.

We enjoyed our stay here, we had a nice private site for our campervan but still near the facilities. Nice showers with capacious washbasins. The laundry was good but the sinks only had taps which were connected to washing machine so no rinsing out the swimming costume except in the other facilities. A bonus is the indoor swimming pool.The owners were very welcoming. The site is adjacent to the town park whihc has some good bush walks. The town centre is in easy walking distance. We will be visiting again

I stayed in one of the small older cabins without a kitchen or bathroom. The cabin was neat and tidy with a small quiet fridge and a sink with cold water and a kettle. Bed was comfortable and there was a blanket and heater in case it got cold (not needed during my stay) even though bedding other than bottom sheet and pillows were not listed as being supplied. The small table and chairs was a pleasant surprise as was the wifi. Communal kitchen had cooking pots, pans and utensils availible and close to the cabin also with the toilet block.
A great place to stay for the Taranaki Garden Festival as the location is both quiet and central to many great gardens open for the festival central and southern Taranaki. I have returned to this pretty campground several times over the years and no doubt will be back again.

The camp operator was awesome. We had a work crew of approximately 30. She fussed about us and dried some of the workers clothes as we were working in rain all week. She was always available for all our workers to assist them and went out of her way many times. She even washed and dried all our tea towels.

The focal point for us was the awesome showers. Big pressure and hot as. Our crew coming in after all day in the wet and to get this was a big neccessity. Hot water never ran out. Also free hot water. Toilets were always cleaned.

We used the backpackers hall for the main of our crew and the kitchen was well resourced and big enough for our crew to eat. Free wifi!! My crew has never been so spoilt.

Good size cabin, swimming pool, common kitchen and laundry. This holiday is for everyone, families, couples, solo travelers. It caters for campervan, tenting, bunk beds, cabins and rooms. The location is ideal especially for visitors bound to Egmont National Park and tackle the various walking tracks and the famous Mt Taranaki summit.

We were very impressed the property was immaculate. Rooms were spotless. We were welcomed by freindly staff. Facilities catered for all types of visitors. Indoor pool, kids playground, sites seperated by hedges creating privacy, grounds well groomed. No complaints. A property to be proud of to welcome visitors.

Perfect location for those that want to escape the city yet be within walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants as well as having a short bush walk next to it. The camp owners have made a remarkable difference when they remodelled the Park, amenities are top notch, clean and tidy. Katy the Manager is very friendly and welcoming. Looking forward to staying again!

The room was easy to get to with easy access for my vehicle. The unit was well appointed and comfortable and the area quiet. I arrived after office hours but provision was made for me to easily locate my key and there was a map with it of the facility with my room clearly marked. An after hours number was included for any unforeseen difficulties encountered.
