This place was recommended by the car rental company nearby. The staff was helpful. The price was reasonable. The room was clean and quiet. The location is very convenient to pick up a rental car on next morning.

We stayed here for one night because we had a really early flight in the morning. We booked a standard cabin which had a double bed/single bed bunk set. It also contained a cabinet with plates jug etc. No table or chairs. Little bit far from the toilets in the pouring rain Very basic but perfectly acceptable for what we...

Thank you for your review and feedback. Our standard cabins are connected with a long under cover walkway to our main ablution block so hopefully you did not get too wet. Hope to see you again and remember to book direct for the best prices for our ensuite accommodation.

The room exceeded our expectations and was just perfect for our young family. The playground was great and the free colouring in sheets a real bonus for the children. The staff were awesome and super friendly. The laundry amenities were the best we've come across while travelling and the whole park was neat, clean and tidy.

Used this camping before but think it will be Spencer for the next time. 32 dollar for 1 person on a powered site is too expensive. First the positive, its close to the airport. Staff is very friendly and its clean. Now the negative, they are building next to the camping and you can see this process will take a...

Hi Chris thank you for your review. Sorry to hear your stay was not satisfactory. This has been readdressed in our new reservation system have decreased our rates to $26 for this year. Spencer Park is actually quite a way out of town and do not have the same facilities as we do here so you do pay for what...

The park is very near to the airport. I made a mistake in the reservation.There was no problem to change booking. Additionally we got deluxe cabin instead of place for tent. Hot showers, clean room and good price, everything was perfect.

This park is nice and close to the airport at a very reasonable price which was perfect for our brief stop over in Christchurch before moving onto the rest of the South Island.

Booked a night's stay at the power site before our journey to Mount Cook the next day. We checked in close to 730pm where everything is pitch black. Couldn't locate the park after circling a few rounds (a bright neon signage would help). Basic amenities in the park, showers are limited only to 6 minutes other than that, there was...

Thank you for your review - apologies for finding it hard to find us. We have been waiting for the new street lighting to be installed so we can receive power for our signage.
