The unit itself was the most cleanest self contained unit I have ever been in and it had everything we needed in it. The campsite itself was great too, it seems really well run and the ammenities were great as well. I also loved...

Close to full kitchen and cooking options, including free bbq, large fridge and freezers for campers to use. Friendly and helpful staff. A great kiwi camping holiday. Have already rebooked for...

Very good camping at an idyllic spot for a reasonable price in comparrison with other camps this time of the year. The camp is identified as a DOC (Department of Conservation) camp and is situated as last camp on the left before the domain. The expansive white sandy surf beach and outlook to the "Hen and Chicken" islands is simply...

This camp site is in a good location. It is well equipped and while the rooms are very basic, they are presented well. They are clean and bright. I am puzzled by the questions below asking about it being a Hotel. My answers as No mean No because it is NOT a Hotel - it is a Camp ground with...

Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm afraid i'm not sure what you mean about the hotel question; is it part of the reviewing process? We are indeed a camp ground with a range of cabins available. We have everything from basic kitchen cabins to fully self-contained cabins available which have bathrooms with showers and toilets. Perhaps if you...

We booked a kitchen cabin for a break away as there were no self-contained cabins available. The cabin was well equipped, but we thought a small table & possibly stools inside would have been convenient Ablution block was excellent, very clean & even had Kiwi music playing - nice touch.
