Great location and value for money”

location to beach and town, cleanliness and friendliness of staff

My stay was very comfortable and ideal for my needs. The location could not have been better. The holiday park is walking distance to the beach and close enough to the town to be able to walk. The cabin was basic but clean and the staff very welcoming and helpful. It was good value for money however due to the style of accommodation and services provided I do not think it fits into the 4 star hotel category. That said, I would still recommend it as a good value for money place to stay

Dear Julie, Firstly, our sincerest apologies for the late response for completing the online review of your stay at the Waikanae Beach Top 10 Holiday Park. We are very proud of our little slice of paradise in Gisborne city being right on the beach, close to many restaurants and cafes and only a 10-15 minute walk to the CBD so thank you for acknowledging that fact. We are also very pleased that your stay was comfortable and that our team were very helpful, friendly and made you feel welcome throughout your stay. Waikanae Beach Top 10 Holiday Park is 4 stars for Holiday Parks around NZ, not the Hotel industry which is quite different however, I can understand how that could be confusing. Your feedback is very much appreciated and we are really pleased that you will be recommending us to others. We hope you will visit again soon. Thank you

Location, facilities, cost.

Could have been better. Cups and bench area were dirty, sugar spilt. Toilet had a bad leak or urine was coming out between the seat and bowl??? Found this in other rooms also. Room was cold, although there was a heater, there was only one power point so we couldnt plug anything else in, ie charger and jug. An extra blanket in wardrobe could have been an option. And the pillow was far too thin, felt like there was none. The location was awesome and so was the playground and pillow, the beach was wow!
