Squashed,antiquated facilities (dirty doors in ladies) tiny showers! The staff were unfriendly they never even welcomed us! Area down market ,couldn't wait to leave! A visit to the local charm school wouldn't go a miss with the staff!

Stayed at Aaron Lodge in our motorhome for 2 nights, loved it. So well maintained, clean and tidy, as are most BIG 10s we stayed in but Aaron Lodge is set up so differently from any other park we stayed in due to the topography. A tad squeezed in when full but great grassed site we had, very popular and... More

Stayed here for two nights recently. Our room smelt very bad so asked if we could move rooms or book out. We were given another room. This one didn't smell but the wardrobe had two dirty towels in it. My son and I had no pillows as our pillows were disgusting and greasy like they had been on the bed... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Aaron Lodge. The facilities were immaculately clean, the showers piping hot and the bathrooms had heaters. All very welcome in the winter. The kitchen looked very well equipped, we used our own in the van but I was impressed to see an oven available. Very welcoming staff and overall a great stay. Remote wifi... More

Hi Billy. Thank you for your kind comments. Our buildings aren't the newest but we try to compensate with basics like cleanliness, endless hot water and heating, to compensate for the coolness outside. We love sharing this special country with our guests. More

Stayed here for 3 nights in what I think was called a cosy kiwi or something similar. The unit was pretty old but it was clean and it was serviced daily.

Hi Gracie. Thank you for your review. As you have guessed, these units were built to provide base level ensuite and kitchen facilities plus TV, with two bedrooms, at a lower price than is possible for a motel. Our Kozy Kiwis sit second lowest in the range of six levels of self contained units we provide. More

We were so impressed by this place. We were in a motor home and found the facilities to be absolutely immaculate. It was cold in May, so a heater was on in the bathroom, piped in music, and cleaner than clean, every detail seemed to be thought of. The woman who checked us in was friendly, very helpful, went over... More

Expensive place, but the installations are quite good, sufficient and clean. The spaces are small. The grounds are situated near the centre of Dunedin CBD. Dunedin is a good base for visiting the Otago Peninsula, which has a nature reserve at its point with albatrosses, sealions and penguins.

Nice top ten complete with game tables, a tv room and kitchen, and a wifi office area. The pool is closed in winter but there is an aviary. For runners, there are some tough hill to try running up around neighborhood

Thank you for your review Riley. I'm sorry you thought our heated & covered pool was closed for winter. We often leave the thermal blanket on to save energy if we think it won't be needed, but are always happy to open the pool since it is there to be used. Be sure to bring your bathers next time. :-) More
