Thank you for your response and we appreciate the feedback - we take verbal abuse very seriously and have since spoken to the person in question to get another perspective on your review.

We stayed here as a group of campers (three motor homes). We were given powered sites next to each other that were close to the bathrooms and kitchens. There was an undercover walkway from our camp sites straight to the facilities, which were kept clean and tidy throughout our stay. There were quite a few others staying in the park,...

Thank you for your response and we appreciate the feedback - our pools are emptied each night and refilled - they are natural pools so the water is straight out of the ground therefore there can be sediment and our staff are dedicated to keeping them as clean as possible during the day without disturbing guests.

For sure it's not the most beautiful campground I've found in New Zealand, but the price is not excessive. The employees are friendly, the structure (even the bathrooms and kitchens) not too clean and green areas could be better maintained. One positive is that it is very close to Te Puia, just 10 minutes' walk.

We have been staying at this holiday park for about 45 years - in Log and other cabins, caravans and motorhomes. The previous owner kept the camp facilities and grounds immaculate, and we always enjoyed our stays. Not so on our recent stay - told it had been bought by local Polytech??

Thank you for your response and we appreciate the reply. The reason we lock the main kitchen and lounge at 11.00 pm (or thereabouts) is to try and alleviate noise for the rest of the holiday makers and to stop people who aren't staying at our Holiday Park from entering these facilities and helping themselves, which has happened in the...
