We camped here for 2 nights and stayed in the studio for 1 night. Camping is beside a small river, and the showers are free and hot. We found the kitchen area to be way too small for the number of people staying, but aside from that was ok. The studio is amazing, with the most comfortable bed, fully equipped...

Our two night experience here was not enjoyable in any way. The hut was extremely hot and despite having the air conditioning on the lowest setting from the minute we arrived it was still unbearable all night. Therefore I query whether it was actually working at all, hence an awful nights sleep for myself, my husband and three year old...

Perfect for the family. Really a Nice place to spend time. Facilities are old but in fine condition. The place is only a shot walk from the beach so a perfect start to many adventures. The reception helps finding things to do

Proper campsite with everything you need and want. Friendly staff with a convenience store right there. Pub down the street, fresh fruit/vegs for sale, animals to admire, clean facilities, stocked kitchen, and a swimming hole. We were traveling the south island by campervan for 2 weeks and this was my favourite campsite of the entire trip.

We camped here for a night with our 9 month baby after hiking the coastal track as the location is excellent. Very disappointing however - the facilities were dirty, mice were running round the kitchen, the fridges weren't working properly and there was a small sign up in a corner of the laundry area saying that the water should be...

Hi Nicola, I'm sorry to hear your stay with us at Old Macdonald's Farm Holiday Park was not up to your expectations and that I did not get the opportunity to talk with you on these matters. I would like to explain some reasons as to why you may have felt overcharged, as we are situated in a farm like...

We can wholeheartedly recommend you stay in the unit at Old Macs Holiday Park. It is a fully self contained unit, complete with spa bath and BBQ and allows you to relax and enjoy the evening and morning birdsong. The unit is not cheap, but clean and spacious and has everything you may need. It is also an excellent location...

Stayed in the 3 bed cabins in early 2017. Quite tight with not really enough room for the three large backpacks we had. Very quick wifi, although I'm never stoked about having to pay for it when I've paid for a room. It is a pretty cool location, with good facilities (ignoring the shower wait times) and friendly staff. Highly...

Well run operation with well maintained and clean toilets and kitchen facilities. It was the peak season, so very busy - but still not overly crowded and we still enjoyed our privacy. The sandflies in the evening are a pain - so we had to quickly get some repellant and mozzie coils - that seemed to settle them down. They...

Stayed for one night, pleasant enough location which became very busy in the afternoon. Got destroyed by sandflies and mozzies, more than any other campsite in the last 10 days combined. Not enough toilets for amount of people, had to keep coming back to see if free and lines of people waiting to use the dirty toilets and showers. No...
