we stayed just a night here but can report that this was right up there for a top camping ground. The central location was great, the owners are so pleasant, very friendly and helpful. The amenities were dated but spotlessly clean and the kitchen was the best equipped of all the campsites we visited in out three week We had...

We stayed here in a camper. The service was super friendly and helpful and the grounds close enough to town. The kitchen facilities were amazing and the toilets and toilets and showers were the cleanest I've ever seen. I highly recommend this place!!

Located behind a church, the grounds are well laid out, gravel van pads. Kitchen and TV room combined with good cooking with all pots, pans, crockery available. Showers have a complicated hot water system, but free. Very close to King fish and chips.

Located just about 5 mins from town centre. The place is A bit obscure as its located within a residential community. Groceries Countdown and Pak & Save are less than 1 km away. There's also a good fish & chips place just 5 mins walk away. The place is very clean and tidy. Facilities are well maintained and very affordable....

The kitchen is the best camping kitchen in New Zealand. It is large, well supplied with cookware of good quality, there are tables galore set with serving mats and...

We've stayed here a few times now on our way through Invercargill. The owners are lovely and have really thought this place through. The kitchen is probably the highlight, when you've been cooking on a camp stove for weeks it's great to have an oven and lots of space to cook! The lounge area is in the same room; books,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quiet well-maintained park easy 800m walk into the city. Powered and unpowered sites. Quality bedroom units with bedding, TV, heater etc, 2 with ensuites and 2 without bedding for the more budget conscious travellers. High pressure showers, very well equipped kitchen-dining-lounge area, laundry, free Wifi voucher. Three things our guests regularly comment are how much they enjoy being able to park-up and stroll into the city, the very high standard of cleanliness and how very comfortable and relaxed they feel staying with us. We really are en route to everywhere! Just metres from the Southern Scenic Route - east to the Catlins & west to Fiordland, State Highway 1 - north to Dunedin & and south to Bluff and the Stewart Island ferry terminal, and just a few blocks from the city centre. Come check us out. We look forward to welcoming you! ... more   less

“If you are older and own a campervan, and only tend to stay 1 or 2 nights, then this will be ok. Dont expect a real camping experience of fun and laughter playing cars at night, you will only be told to be quiet and go to bed at 10.30pm. Its a real shame.”
