Positive Reviews

Handy location

Guests are generally happy with the holiday park’s location just outside the centre of Christchurch. They report that the vicinity is well-served with shops and Westfield Mall is just a mile away for those seeking self-catering supplies. It’s also a relatively easy matter journeying into the city centre thanks to the bus service that travels along the road to the front of the park.

Great facilities in well-maintained grounds

This park is evidently well-run. Whether guests are staying in the cabins or units or have arrived in their own accommodation, they are in agreement that the holiday park offers all the amenities they are looking for. They also appreciate how clean and tidy everything is kept and they love the attractive green spaces and gardens.

Friendly owners and staff

There is a large degree of praise for the staff members and owners who look after the day-to-day affairs. There’s a friendly and helpful atmosphere which is one of the main reasons guests enjoy staying here.

Negative Reviews

Quite a compact holiday park

While not a major issue, guests remark that the holiday park is quite compact. This is to be expected given its city location but it does mean that some of the rooms and sites aren't always as generously sized as those found in holiday parks in the countryside.

Would benefit from an update

If guests are being picky, they would recommend that some of the facilities be updated. In particular, they notice that the showers don’t work as well as they would like.
