Beautiful location - terrible neighbours
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Jan 2020
We had a corner room which was quite dark, and the polar fleece linens were an unusual choice in the middle of summer - but the main issue was the guests in the next room. Despite the kindness of the owners who showed us around and asked them to be quiet they persisted in playing loud music, swearing, and worst of all - smoking directly outside our room. The smoke filled the room.

My oldest son had some issues with the bed as the slats weren't evenly spaced on any of the beds, so his mattress sagged through.

The location is lovely- the river was great - I had no issues with any of the other facilities - but if I had wanted to stay with backpackers, I would have stayed at a backpackers.
Bit of a shame really.

Made the right decision and decided to stay the night here on our way down to Dunedin. Worth it, the owners were lovely and super welcoming. They have a menagerie of friendly animals and it's situated on a picturesque river. Definitely worth $16 each for a powered camper spot.

After a pleasant welcome our room was disappointing. The shower - toilet had no window or fan so the clean freshly painted room was dank. There were no bedside lights and only one power socket in a hard to use place nowhere near any horizontal surface. The bed linen on the kingside double bed was velveteen (yes, really!). There were no hooks to hang stuff up (though a couple of screws protruded from the wall) and no cupboard or ganging space. Given the good site and reasonably spacious room, the lack of simple finishing items reduced the value the place badly.

A wonderful stay at this secluded campsite, lots for kids, giving parents that rest, time in the river, many great places, Morakei, Oamaru & Dunedin, Hampden a short drive down the road & has the biggest ice creams & best fish n chips.

The welcoming & hospitable staff who run this place, have been so kind & accomodating!

We stayed in the cabins, which were great! We will be back :-)

Camped at a non powered site and owners were friendly and very helpful in doing the extra little things, e.g. adding solar lighting to show a pathway between the trees to the facilities for late night visits. Easy spot and traffic noise from main road not a problem. Lots of farm animals for the kids to check out too.

We stayed in a room for a good price, considering it was high season. We had a private bathroom and everything was so clean. We didn't use the kitchen but had dinner in the shared living-room. Same comment: everything was very clean. The owners were friendly and helpful. The place is located next to a road but it's a very quiet though. You are surrounded by nature and next to the river. Easy to park as well.
