North South Holiday Park

Reviewed 18 April 2014

We arrived at the park late after flying in and the staff had kindly left a key attached to the window for us to collect on arrival. Prior to this we had received a few emails from the park welcoming us asking if there was anything we needed in advance.

The staff certainly have a customer service focus which is great. It just needs to extend a bit further to the facilities. We were in a self contained unit with our own shower/toilet. The unit was clean and well presented.

My only complaint was that the beds were really hard and the pillows were terrible, really lumpy and brick like. If you're going to stay there take your own pillows.

There is wifi there but you need to pay for it.

They have facilities for washing and drying clothes and a small shop in their office for those emergency items you might forget, some food/toiletries etc.

Overall a basic holiday park in a good location which would suit anyone passing through but certainly not for a longer stay unless you were in your own camper.

Room Tip: Take your own camper or tent

These cabins were tidy... They were also tiny and cold!

The park facilities were adequate, and would be quite nice if the weather was a but warmer.

I wouldn't go back...

Should you choose to go, be sure to take your own pillow... They were probably the worst pillows I've ever experienced!

We arrived to Christchurch in the late afternoon and after going to grocery store was glad to have a holiday park close by. We were a bit nervous when we heard the airplanes overhead but they stopped well before bed time. The facilities were maintained well and very clean. The showers were hot and free. Great place to stay on your way in our out of Christchurch.

Went in for one night, with a fully paid agoda booking. But booking not valid with the north south.

They were truly sorry about it, made a full cash refund, and said there were no rooms available... But they can provide a pod (van converted to a room/small camper) free of charge due to the booking issue (even though the booking issue was agoda's fault!!)

Ended up helping us to book a different hotel and even drove us to the hotel. Real customer service... Agoda on the other hand has not even apologized for the matter!!!!

This is in a really handy place for most of the van rental companies. The little cabin we slept in was freezing in the night! Need some warm blankets to be provided. Showers and toilet facilities were very clean.

First two nights in cottage were the best, next 3 nights in cabin 20 were also pretty good except for a bit of leakage through the roof in heavy rain. The next few nights were supposed to be in cabin 20 but we were given smaller cabin 17 without explanation, but with a reduced price. Leaking roof in continuing exceptionally heavy rain soaked pillows on bed. The shade sail attached to the unit kept shaking rthe unit all night in gale force winds. Not the fault of NS, but alarming nevertheless. The washing machines were great. The overall satisfaction level was fairly high, but we would have liked better service for towels and replacing toilet paper which of course ran out just after the office closed.

Good location near the airport. Wouldn't be too good without a car as there's not much in the surrounding area. Cabin had everything we needed, including basic cooking/eating equipment (to use in the shared kitchen), towels, sheets, doona, TV. Better equiped than other cabins we stayed at in NZ. Quiet. Good value. Probably not too good if you don't have a car.
