Perfect for an overnight stay. My family and I stayed in a cabin. Had everything we need, was clean, comfortable and warm and very close to kaikoura down, staff were lovely also. Only downpoint would be the train tracks being right behind our cabin. Very noisy and not good with young children. But overall would definitely stay again. Thank you... More

Thanks for your review. I am glad you found our facilities and accommodation clean and comfortable, this is what our cleaners strive for everyday.

The camp ground is just about on the beach. Very modern facilities and the grounds are well kept. An easy walk to town and attractions. It is part of the Top 10 Holiday Parks so the rates are reflected in this.

Nice campsite. We stayed with motorhome. Our pitch was close to the play area which was good for our kids. The play area was great although if you are on that side there is a train track and station right behind the hedge which can make the ground rumble a bit.

We visited Kaikoura during the coldest period of our trip when skies seemed to be bluest. The setting, against the Kaikoura range is magnificent and the proximity of the site to the town and coastal walks makes it a great place to stay.
