About North South Holiday Park

This family-run holiday park in pleasant, tree-lined grounds is just five minutes' drive from Christchurch International Airport. Along with its handy location, North South Holiday Park offers an outdoor pool and free Wi-Fi.

Basic, cabin-style accommodations feature flat-screen TVs and tea/coffee makers. Upgraded quarters add kitchens and living areas with dining tables. Some accommodations require guests to use shared bathroom facilities. Backpacker dorms and bunkhouses are also available, as are tent and campervan pitches.

Amenities include an on-site shop, playground, and public-use PCs. Bicycles and family fun bikes can be hired from reception.

Communal kitchen facilities are on hand for guests to use. Off-site dining options include a nearby fast food restaurant and a seasonal fruit and ice cream joint (The Fruit & Berry Cafe) just over half-a-mile away.

North South Holiday Park is a ten-minute drive from the open range Orana Wildlife Park, and 15 minutes from Ruapuna International Racecourse. Christchurch city centre is around seven miles away.

Positive Reviews

Staff are friendly and helpful

Reviewers are full of praise for the attentive and cooperative personnel who look after this park. Visitors observe that the operatives here provide an authentically warm welcome and are always willing to go out of their way to fulfil guests' requests.

Location is a vote winner

Close to the airport, quick access to the West Coast Highway, and an easy drive into the city; it's easy to see why so many travellers rate this property's location so highly. Reviews are positive about the park's verdant, natural setting too.

Property offers good value for money

The vast majority of travellers who stay here believe this property offers excellent value for money. Reviewers say that, all things considered, you really do get plenty of bang for your buck here.

Negative Reviews

Limited shower time

Visitors aren't impressed with the time restrictions in effect at the communal showers. Reviewers say the six-minutes afforded for each person's 'wash window' simply isn't long enough to enjoy a decent shower.

Can be chilly at night

Many travellers highlight the heating (or lack of it) as an issue in their rooms. Guests staying in accommodations at the lower end of the budget spectrum tend to complain about night time chills more often than anyone else.
