Omarama Top 10 Holiday Park – A Review

This post is a review of Top 10 Holiday Park, a camping and caravan grounds with self-catered cabins in Omarama, New Zealand.

Omarama Top 10 Holiday Park – 9/10
Address: 1 Omarama Avenue, Omarama, 9448 New Zealand

Top 10 Holiday Park is a chain company with lots of camp grounds in different cities, providing caravans and campers with camping grounds, electricity, water and cottages.

We rented 2 cottages, each one had a car space in front of it.

The 2 staff members at check in (a man and woman) were not very nice, but the accommodation and facilities are great for a holiday park.

This place was within a convenient location to the Clay Mountains, although there are other hotels across the road. This location was on the side of the road away from the city, sort of like on the side of a highway. (A lot of the places we drove to in New Zealand on this trip were scattered along long stretches of roads, with the exception of Christchurch where the hotels were in the city).

The facilities here are much better than the previous location, Alpine View and I must say, quite good for a caravan park. The free internet was limited to 3 devices at one time which was a bit inconvenient as that meant 1 person had to log off if another one of us needed internet connection (4 in our group) but I suppose would be sufficient if you had 3 or less people in your group. Internet was fast.

Our cabin had there were 2 bedrooms, one had 2 single beds and one had one double bed. The kitchen was nice, good cookware with clean microwave and fridge. There is a dining table, sofa and television. We had to request milk in little capsules from the check in after seeing there weren’t any in the fridge.





Plenty of toiletries including soap, shampoo, extra toilet paper, iron, hairdryer and dustpan.



Towels in the bathroom and on your bed, like in all the other places we stayed at. Bathroom was modern and comfortable.

Bedrooms were comfortable, warm and well equipped with a table lamp for each person and a wardrobe for clothes, however the cabins closest to the road could be a bit noisy at night (only the sounds of occasional cars, nothing like the city, for those of you concerned).

For campers, there are public kitchens which looked quite clean when we came, pay computer/internet rooms (quite small, about 6 or so computers), laundry rooms, kid’s play equipment (including a large enclosed trampoline), a small tv lounge, and being a camp site, pets are allowed.

There was also a playground with a trampoline, a sturdy, enclosed spring-less one.

Total price for 2 cabins for a total of 7 people for 1 night: $328 New Zealand dollars. At this price and given the facilities, I think this is not bad.

Stay time: January 24-25, 2016
