“good space”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

We stay in the self contained cabins. $NZ80. Here in Palmerston North was a kitchen, living room and bedroom. It is certainly very 60's and I doubt the TV will see in the digital age. but
the unit is detached, and you get good light and sun. Once you go back to a corporate Motel, you will miss the oven and the space and trees.
Sometimes various campers will loiter outside the cabins, and be noisy, a the case fur us.

Like much accommodation in NZ this place gouges prices for Internet . $15 is absurd. . I now look for free Internet acommodation

Room Tip: Unit 5 for us had good sun

My partner and I stayed for a few days 8th and 9th January 2013. We stayed in a tourist cabin which has a kitchen and an ensuite.

We found it very clean and comfortable and at NZ$65 a night, very affordable.

At the rear of the holiday park is a gateway which leads to the Victoria Esplanade which has a miniature railway, rose gardens, an aviary, winter garden and a great playground for the kids. Next to the park is also an aquatic centre.

The holiday park is also quite close to the central city, plus the staff are very friendly.

On their website they state "Come and stay at the greatest Holiday Park in Palmerston North." This is quite an easy claim to make when you read later on "Being the only holiday park in the area...."
They also claim that they have "....dedication to keeping the park in immaculate condition...."

So...

The showers are so small you can hardly turn around in them. There is mould growing on the walls. The door of the cubicle I was in had no lock and the door just kind of jammed shut. The light on the roof had obviously broken at some stage and the repair was some 100 mile an hour tape which had also now come adrift and was hanging loose.

Not really what I would call the most ideal holiday park. I probably wouldn't stay here again. I'd either freedom camp or bypass Palmerston North altogether.

On the plus side, the hosts were friendly and...... yeah...the hosts were friendly.
