          The location and nature was nice, perfect for a family with young children but not very backpacker friendly. We stayed in the double bed cabin which didn't supply blankets or towels, no wifi, priced the same as the hostels you find in Christchurch or Auckland....More

          We are so disappointed to read your review and wish to set the record straight. You arrived at 1030 in the morning requesting a room, and were given access straight away even though our check in time is 1.00pm. Bedding is available at a small...More

          Our plan was to head off directly to Lake Tekapo upon touching down at Christchurch. However, as we faced some issues while collecting our rental car, we only managed to hit the road late in the evening. We were quite tired mid-through our drive and...More

          I moved into the Rakaia Holiday Park early January and I absolutely love it here. Not on holiday, but semi-permanent arrangement, I have been treated with respect and friendliness. It has not rained here this month and the climate reminds me of the sunshine Coast,...More
