We stayed in a basic cabin. It was clean and well set up including with a TV. The facilities were clean and kitchen had lots of appliances and plates and cutlery if you forgot your own. Showers were warm and powerful. Family room was basic, but there was a toddler bath in the women's facilities. Staff were nice. The campground...

This campsite is really good, despite having some permanent caravans onsite. The jewel in their crown are the washrooms. Spotlessly clean, underfloor heating...never seen that in a campsite anywhere, large showers with glass showerscreens. Very quiet.

Second of the seven BIG 10s we stayed at in the South Island and it was the BEST. Great location, very peaceful, so so clean and tidy. Unlike some BIG 10s we were packed in and surrounded, lovely little spot on grass, no one near us, great ablution area and kitchen and near a very good café, couldn't ask for...
