Lake Brunner stunner with old school charm

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Dec 2019via mobile
We stayed two nights recently, on what were pretty average weather days, but the location of the holiday park for Lake Brunner views was amazing.

The camp has recently changed hands and a lot of work has been done. The facilities are functional, clean and tidy and the showers hot and have great pressure. It's a true kiwi camping experience with an old school camping charm.

The lake and many walks are within a short walking distance.

Coffee from the wee, very well stocked shop, is as good as, if not better than, any we've had in Wellington city's cafes.

We will be back and we are already recommending to our family and friends.

Thanks for the great hospitality.

Stayed here, purely by chance, on the first night of our trip back in NZ early in November. We will definitely be going back - really peaceful stay. Lots of work ongoing to upgrade the site - the facilities were also really clean. Had a long chat with Jo (joint owner) who we met walking by the lake - lots of really interesting local info. Cheers Jo.Sounds like we missed out on the coffee though :(. We'll get one next time

Have always loved our time in Brunner, now have the added attraction of a great coffee which we experienced for the first time today. Brunner not the easiest place for new business so will be fully supporting this one. Only problem is that we don't won't to share Brunner with a lot more people. Jane

Been on a permanent site for few years but always felt the place was well below what it could be.
New owners greet you with a smile and go out of their way to be helpful and friendly.
In less than a month it is clear to see the place is refreshed from the barista cafe in the reception area, to the fresh paint and mats in the showers, to new appliances in the kitchen.
These guys have got a great attitude to customer service and ideas for the future. Looking forward to returning to see what happens next.
A beautiful spot for a relaxing weekend with the huge bonus that the dog is welcome.
Well done guys!
