Doesnt even deserve one star....Never recieved any confirmation of stay absouloutely nothing so assumed that the booking hadnt gone through so left at is that. We never went to chch or stayed and assumed the booking was never complete because of no invoice or confirmation. The full amount was taken from my bank account the day or arrival depite terms and conditons saying payment was due on arrival. I got a shock to see this deducted from my account as far I was knew this booking was not confirmed. I emailed the camp twice the day i realised this with no reply. Later that evening I recieved a text to wich iI also replied to saying we were not coming due to a family incident and no confimation of stay. The next morning I got a cery aggressive phone call from the lady in the office asking where we were, she cut me off mutiple times was extremely rude and had no compassion of the death in my family, she was also screaming down the phone at someone in the back ground (maybe kids, telling them to get out) and then asked me if I had finished???? This lady lacks customer service and was so awful to deal with. We had always planned on going back in easter but after that we will never support her bussiness. Be aware she sound liks a right old Bat.

So far it is good, arrived this evening, staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Holiday park is clean and spacious, lovely setting. Good value for money.
Terrible and confronting behaviour from staff ruined our stay. Will not return.

Lovely camping ground, typical old style NZ camping ground. Clean and tidy, not too far from the beach. Excellent play area and small swimming pool for young children.
