We paid $46/nt for 2 pp in Sept 2013 and it was the dearest we paid for a campervan site in NZ during our trip. However, this is Wellington and you are also paying for the convenient location. It was handy to the Interislander ferry and the facilities were clean & functional. You had to press a button to get your timed hot shower, but there was no added cost for this, as found in several other NZ campervan parks. There was also easy access to city centre via the main bus route outside the front entrance (bus depot across the road). $5 pp each way.
Van sites are on a sterile bitumened area at the back of the motel. While this does not help create a good ambiance to the place, it enabled better (cleaner) access to the amenities block/kitchen in wet weather.
Just before we left, one of us received a phone message at the hotel reception. After trying our mobile with no success, the receptionist made her way round the back of the hotel to where we were parked and delivered the message. I felt this was exceptional service.
The park was not full and as our ferry wasn’t departing till the afternoon, they let us park our van(without charge) in the visitors area after we checked out .
