Plenty of room on site for each van not crammed as with some other Top 10 Sites we have been to over the last 10 days . Some might say the building are a bit dated, but all were fully functional ,clean ,tidy and working, laundry, kitchens, Tv room and lounge. All those we came in contact with were most... More

The unit we booked was a real let-down. It didn't reflect the description in the Top 10 listing and was the worst we have stayed in so far. This was a poorly-constructed and maintained room + bathroom with an extremely uncomfortable double bed that was the bottom level of a steel-framed set of bunks. The mattress was very old and...

Lived up to the top10 standard - good value and location. We drove up to Fairlie from Kaikoura and stayed the night before heading next morning to Lake Tekapo and Pukaki. The only thing to remember is that the two bedroom cottage has a walk through bedroom - got quite awkward with my SO's folks taking up the main and... More

We found the park really great for an overnight stay in our rented Kea Campervan. The facilities although older really suited the needs of the 3 families travelling the South Island together. The kitchen was perfect for cooking our dinner and all having a nice warm area to sit. We then moved to the TV room which was fantastic, nice... More

Stayed five nights 25th-30th March. The room I booked wasn't within the holiday park complex but at MacKenzie Motels which are 5x studio rooms they own close to town. Clean, tidy, spacious with fridge, tv and bathroom. Roomy enough place with tea/coffee, heaps of plates/cutlery, microwave/toaster. For the cost I paid I was very impressed. Special thanks to Annie and... More

Dated and worn site but - for once, given this is a Top 10 site - plenty of room per pitch. Satisfactory for an overnight stop in a motorhome. Bring your own supper with you - regret very little on offer in small town not geared up for tourists.

If you have paid to have a bed made up, make sure before you retire to bed that it consists of more than a sheet and a duvet cover, and if its the "cell" beside the toilet asked to be moved so you are not woken by punters all hours of the morning. Have a fellow camper spit on you... More

My partner and I stayed in a self contained unit at the Top 10 in Fairlie. Although the unit was of age and quite old fashioned, it was very clean and nicely presented. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding cosy and warm. Unfortunately I can't say the same positive things about Fairlie city centre.

We were advised by tourist radio to consider this place instead of staying in Lake Tekapo. Relax in parkland, play chess on the giant chessboard, enjoy a private hot tub and free Internet... Well how could we resist. Except the Internet wasn't free, the gigantic chess set was 64 bricks in the ground and chess pieces carved from local stone... More
