“basic site a little out of town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

We stayed here for one night in a basic cabin, with two sets of bunks (one with a double bed underneath) and a table and chairs. The kitchen and bathrooms were at the other end of the same block so could be reached undercover if it was raining. Both were basic but adequate. There was also a laundry in the block, but we didn’t use it.

The kids loved the pool with a simple waterslide, and the playground, especially the huge trampoline. There was a TV lounge with internet pcs (paid access, you could pay for wifi too), but we didn’t use them either.

The site is a bit out of town, and not as new or nice as other Top 10s we stayed at in NZ, but was fine for one night.

While in NZ we stayed at 5 or 6 Top 10 Holiday Parks. I was very impressed with them! For those from the U.S. this is similar to the KOA campground chain there. These for the most part were even nicer than many of those.

That being said I agree wholeheartedly with each of the previous reviews. This campground was my least favorite of those I saw in NZ. While I wouldn't avoid it, I'd probably look for something else instead. We camped there so I don't have any insight on the rooms. The area for camping was ok. It was a large open field in the middle of the campground. It was quiet and the ground worked well for our tenting. I started out using the bathrooms that looked like they were designated for the tenters. It was a building with about 5 rooms that had a toilet, sink and shower in each. Men and women would use it. It was older and not very nice. I made sure not to make skin contact with the floor. I started using the other bathrooms in the campground during our stay which were a little bit nicer.

I agree that the staff here was very nice and very helpful. We were also able to drive to a lot of great stuff nearby (check out "Puzzling World"!), so the area itself is actually pretty great.

Room Tip: If camping, use the bathrooms used by those staying in rooms if you aren't comfortable in the te...

We were a family of four who stayed in a 2-bedroom motel unit during the Warbirds Over Wanaka.
For the price we paid, during such a big event, we really can’t complain and were happy with our stay.
However, whether or not we would return during another part of the year is a bit up in the air.
On the plus side the service was friendly, the unit was spacious enough for our needs, and the outdoor playground and pool (unheated) are great for families.
On the downside, the unit did need some maintenance. The television had no remote, the clock had a flat battery, and neither or the light bulbs in the smaller bedroom worked. All small things that should be checked and fixed regularly. Also, the temperature in the shower was a bit temperamental and the shower head was fixed at a height for very short people.
The location is a bit out of town, which was fine for us as we had a car. People without their own transport may want to stay a bit closer.
Tip: This holiday Park uses IAC internet just like many other backpackers and holiday parks in the South Island. Before travelling, check out the IAC website to see how many of your other accommodation options use IAC also. Buying a wifi package for your whole trip could work out quite a bit cheaper than paying for it day by day.

This was the least attractive Top 10 Holiday Park we stayed at. There is almost no landscaping. The room was average and the location a bit out of Wanaka, but we had a car, so it was no problem. They have a good recycling drop off station and the staff is very nice and helpful. For our budget, it was a good, but not great, place to stay.

This place was a real gem to find in Wanaka. Although a holiday park,
it also offers self-contained units which are very clean and pleasant.
There are cooking facilities in each unit. We were given a bigger room
(even though we did not ask for one). The proprietor or manager is a
very friendly person who gives handy travel tips. Highly recommended.
