Really enjoyed our night in the glamping tent. It was a stormy night, and the tent coped brilliantly - staying comfy throughout. Nice toilet and shower block, although it would be nice to have some extra toiletries in the shower.

Hopeless place
If you want a place were the staff only care about getting your money and not answering questions about what things to do nearby. A room that has a fridge, microwave jug and toaster but no power? And no one to assist you when you try to query why you are paying for a room that has no power. If that sounds like fun then you can go waste your money at this place. Although the view was nice.

The elevated cabin with a view over the camp and out to sea was very nice. The staff were hospitable. But I felt $130 per night was a lot for a shared facilities cabin. And the cookhouse was much too small to accommodate the number of people staying at the campground and the 1 toilet bowl in the Mens was out of order. 3 in the unisex were available

Awesome spot if looking to get away for a couple of days and not keen on the hustle and bustle of being in Gisborne central but still close enough to get to and from quickly. Comfortable bed and cabin however the fan in our room didn’t work which was a little bit of bummer as the weather was scorching during our stay. We were lucky enough that it was quite breezy with the cabin window and door opened up. Only thing we would say requires attention is the kitchen cleanliness. Other than that, would recommend.
