Whanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I stayed here the night as a stop off on my way down the country. I now wish I had the time to stay longer. The park is located in a beautiful relaxing setting. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the bathrooms and kitchen areas were to an excellent standard. The park owners were amazing - I had the unfortunate trouble of my car breaking down - Andre went out of his way to make sure I got back on the road!! Friendly fabulous owners - definitely makes your stay alot more pleasurable!! Top effort

What a wonderful stay. We decided to break away for 1 night and contacted the park for a stay over. The very friendly Hosts went out of their way to make the stay comfortable. Will definitely stay over again

We spent a weekend at Whanganui Top 10 Resort. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and the personal attention from the owner / operator was great.

Andre and Martie are wonderful hosts and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

I will have no problem to stay at the Whanganui Top 10 again and I will recommend the resort to all my friends and family.

Thank you Andre and Martie, your resort is beautiful and your personal attention was much appreciated.

Until next time
Danie

We are repeat offenders at this Park!!!! and what a place to commit a "crime"...... it is a crime to come and stay at this park for a relaxing holiday and just to know and think of your fellow man is working his bud off while you are in paradise!!! This is our favourite holiday park and will not change this - our grand children (3 years) are having a ball from the play grounds, rides and swimming pool are just a few items that keeps them busy the whole day.
This is an excellent stay and real value for money whether you stay in chalet, kitchen cabin or a tent or caravan, all the same=== GREAT VALUE.

Room Tip: No Fitness Centre but hire a kayak and try the river - excellent!!!!

What a great place to stay. I stayed in a self contained unit. Very clean and comfortable. Certainly had everything I needed. Big grounds which are well cared for. Quiet and tranquil in the evenings with various birdlife (it was great). The hosts were very helpful and friendly. I will definitely be back. It is a place you can relax and unwind in, and lots for the kids to do as well.

Dear Chris, it was great to have you stay at our park and we hope that you will return in future, specially since you had a very bad experience at another camping ground!!

We stayed one night in a kitchen cabin which had a double bed and a bunk (2 beds). The building was a bit dated but it was clean and the heater very effective. It would have been quite cramped if there had been four people in our party.

The camping ground has a nice feel about and we would be happy to stay again. However there were one or two little things that let it down. The mens toilets were out of liquid soap and the lock on the shower was broken.

I stayed one night with a friend and one child. It was quiet and a bit out of town centre. The cabin was modern with everything you need except a good clean, there was hair on the bathroom wall and it wasn't mine, it looked like the cleaner had wiped the wall with the last tenants old towel.
They have electric blankets and a heater with lovely bed quilts and clean sheets.Other than that it was suitable for our needs.

It is for sale so may account for the lack of soul, it was feeling a little ghost town like, but it wasnt the high season either (April 2013) and it would have been nice if the pool was more inviting, it had the cover over it the whole time even though there were children staying in the park, they had a sign saying if you want to use the pool you had to take the large cover off yourself and put it back yourself, we didnt as it looked like it had been stagnant for a while and not very inviting.

Thank you for your review Sonia. Yes, April can sometimes be quiet in the park with the end of the summer season fast approaching and all facilities not being used to their full potential :-(

The cover on the swimming pool is part of our energy saving initiatives and can easily be taken off by using the handle, the request to put it back after use if nobody else is using it is only a friendly request and by no means an instruction - if guests do not want to put it back we have no problem to do it ourselves.
Regards
