We stayed October 9, 2012. A very lengthy drive and to be met by a grumpy old man who was cranky at the thought that we might get use of his pools for nothing for 2 days, despite us staying in a powered site at $21 a head…… His attitude is appalling. His wife? Amro is delightful and very helpful and seems to do all the work , but even she cannot make up for the grumpiness. The facilities are somewhat tired, although the pools are very warm and exceptionally clean. We were perched on what seemed like a mountain top and did not feel the path to the facilities was safe to walk on at night, cracked uneven path and low guide rails. Toilet nd shower facilities were clean. Insufficient space for vehicles to park ….. Was very tight getting in and out in our motor home. Only place in New Zealand I have felt the need to lock up for my safety. Interesting pub next door with classic old style meals. IF YOU NEED MOBILE reception or Internet access, forget it!
