this is an old school-style holiday park with a great vibe. From the super-friendly and helpful hosts through to the fastidiously clean and organised facilities with generous extras such as detergent and oven gloves in the kitchen, herbs to pick for cooking, and the wonderful pool area. We used the hot pools twice a day. It is straight up honest and unpretentious, and I'm very happy we found it.

My wife and I used to come to the Opal Hot Springs way back in the late 70's. Then it was one of the best destinations around. Today, it's welcoming management and staff along with the friendly locals,still make it a good destination. The countries economic situation must be having an effect on how much money is available to be spent here, it is crying out for modernisation and upgrading of the pool complex. Nothing beats making friends in a small cosy camp/motel situation and this weeknd was no exception, for that alone we will be coming back. Thanks guys for a quiet nights sleep after a good soak in a safe and well loved establishment.

Called in for a one night stay, was the draw of a hot pool that brought us here. The Park seems to be in need of a little TLC. It has so much potential especially the pool area which with a bit of attention could be a real gem of a facility.

Booked almost last accommodation available for Queens Birthday Saturday/Sunday. Really enjoyed the hot private pool. Plenty of room. Our accommodation was Tourist Flat #2. Not far from Matamata - which was mainly closed. Food shops and $2 shops about all available. Great staff and no problems arranging my wifi.

Rustic, old school charm. great place to relax. We often stay here on our travels, sometimes just to refresh as we travel through, and sometimes just a few days relaxing. My wife stayed here when she was a kid and facilities haven't changed much since then, but are clean and tidy. The staff are friendly and helpful. A bonus is the lower cost to stay. We have used the cabins on occasion and also stayed there with the caravan on powered sites.
