“Perfect stay”

We stay in this Holiday Park for a week. The facilities were clean, the kitchen was little bit to small, but this depence on the time. The staff were realy friendly and the TV room was perfect to hang out. Wifi was also no problem and enough!

“Great value for $$”

We were in Rotorua for the Whaka100 & wanted to stay somewhere that would be 'mountain biker friendly'. We booked the self-contained family unit which was perfect for what we wanted. The unit was tidy & well laid out. The beds were comfy & the bathroom was adequate. The staff were friendly & helpful. Whilst the location wasn't close to town it suited us fine as we had a rental vehicle or just bikes into town along the cycle path. We would definitely stay again! Great value for $$. Stayed October 2016, travelled as a couple

“Weekend getaway ”

Loved our stay will definitely be returning in the near future. Very friendly staff clean and well maintained units only a couple of minutes drive from Rotorua City Centre. Very family friendly. 10 stars
