Stayed here for one night to split the journey to wellington, the holiday park itself sits next to the river and has a lovely setting, full playground and some bike/cart things that the kids can take out and play.
The shared facilities were exceptionally well looked after when I was there in winter and the games room has a ping pong table and a couple of pool tables, the lines have all worn off the pool tables due to what I'm sure are many games of pool but still fully functioning.
We stayed in a self contained unit and it was very comfortable with a double bed, two lazy boys, a flat screen tv and full kitchen (though we didn't use it) the only odd thing about it is the light switches are in odd places, we didn't have to use them until night and were fumbling around for ages trying to find them!Also when we checked into our cabin the toilet wasn't flushed and had dirty loo paper in it. But the rest of the unit was very clean.
Overall the facilities were a lot better than I expected and we received great service, I would recommend staying here and not hesitate to stay again. Worth the price of a self contained unit :)
