Stayed in one of the motel cabins which are great, have air con and lovely big bathroom, little kitchen has a fridge and microwave, has sky TV and a little deck to sit out in the sun on.

This is a good site and well located for the whale watching and town centre. It is clean, efficiently run, and sensible value. All the amenities, toilets and showers are clean and well maintained. Reception staff are helpful. Recommended.

A fourth visit for us to this lovely site sitting behind the station and on the edge of town. In fact it is on the edge of everything, railway, towns high street, the whale watching centre and a great over the road restaurant.

Stayed two nights. First was blowing a gale and appreciated the windbreak hedges. Great location within walking distance of town and a bit of a hike to the seal colony. Laundry facilities include automatically dispensed detergent - handy for travellers.

Stayed for two nights in camper van. The holiday park was close to town and the whale watch tour. Unfortunately we thought there was a bit too much noise from the highway and helicopters taking off next door but apart from that over all a good place. Good pool, HOT spa, nice playground and cooking facilities. Very friendly staff.

Thanks for taking the time to review our park Katrine. It is a shame that the road and helicopter noise disturbed you. However we do believe our central location also has some great benefits - an easy to find location, 5 minute walk to town centre, shops and restaurants and we are particular close to Whale Watch Kaikoura which can...

As per all Top 10 sites in NZ, the facilities are great, the showers are very good - although you do have to pay $4 for a clothes wash plus $2 for the dryer. It's a short walk into town which was why we were initially attracted to the site but on one side of the site there is the...

Hi Tony, thank you for your review. Kaikoura Top 10 holiday park is located on the main road of Kaikoura, as are a lot of the accommodation options in Kaikoura.

Staying here two nights before moving on and thought that a standard room would be a good respite from the hostels i've used on the rest of my trip. I was wrong. Price is about what you would expect for such a site but to my surprise they expect me to pay extra for quilts. What a joke.

My husband and I stayed here for a night before Easter in 2015. It was busy but quiet and the surroundings are beautiful. Facilities were clean and tidy. Would stay here again if we're lucky enough to visit NZ in the future.
