“Loved the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We stayed here in a campervan in late January for 3 nights. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The washrooms were very clean and no shortage of hot water in the shower. Used the laundry facilities and there were 2 washing lines to dry clothes on. It's within easy walking distance of the village which has a very nice restaurant. The distance between campervans was about average with the other sites we stayed on. We loved the area and were glad we stayed an extra night. We would recommend staying here.

Good location for touring the peninsula, friendly staff, we stayed in our tent for 3 days, sites good but compact. The kitchen had very few cooking utensils but the area is much too small when the place is full, which it was when we were there. There are not enough seats to accommodate even half the people. My wife cooked her breakfast late one morning and had to go sit in the "small computer room" next door to eat. The TV room is the same area where you hope to find a seat to eat, any very noisy when people are cooking.

We usually stay at hiltons, but no chain hotels around.
Stayed here in a 1 bedroom cabin with 3 kids.
I must say on first sight we were a little concerned, BUT this was the cleanest place we have stayed on the south island. To us that is the most important thing and would stay again. Would give it 4 stars except for price.

Stayed February 2014

Nice place and decently priced. We didnt have a camper-van and stayed in one of the en-suite studios. It was really clean with a nice little kitchen which had all the cutlery and a microwave.

The lady at the reception was extremely helpful and we did all the activities she suggested and enjoyed all of them a lot.

Otago Peninsula has some good home-stays with better views but if you cant get a booking for one of them, this is an excellent alternative.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

This is a great place for what it is- camping/RV/backpacker's place. The tent sites are nicely maintained, the shower/toilet facilities are clean and updated, the laundry facilities are good, and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and has a nice hot water dispenser. I stayed here 12 years ago, and then again in Dec 2013, and both times I found it to be very comfortable. Everything looks well maintained and the staff is very nice and helpful. The location is great for exploring the Otago Peninsula as well.

Room Tip: If you get a tent site closer to the building, it may be a little louder (with other guests walking...

We stayed here for one night on a powered site. Lovely setting, rural and peaceful. Kitchen, showers and laundry were all clean and well maintained. Plenty of hot water and lots of utensils in the kitchen. Very helpful staff.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

Stayed here for one night in a cabin and have to say there was nothing at all wrong with it. Comfortable bed, clean room and kitchen, good shower and bathroom facilities.
The lady at reception was very friendly and informative, we're glad we chose this place.
The missus and I actually rocked up at 6pm and asked for a bed and they made it so easy, no dramas at all.
I recommend it, and the peninsular is beautiful..

P.S I remember the computers were quite slow.

Room Tip: Use your own device for internet if you have to, we bought time off them but we barely got to load a...
