Feels like a home away from home

The staff are wonderful and go out of their way to make your stay so enjoyable. Wendy you are amazing and oh, so friendly. This may not be 5 star accommodation but you are certainly treated like it is. Again, Amber Park thanks again for your excellent hospitality and facilities. Feels like a home away from home.

Amber Park is a fantastic place to stay!

We are regular visitors to Christchurch for both business and pleasure. Amber Park is a fantastic place to stay, we are never disappointed with the accommodation, helpful staff and high standards of cleanliness.

Thank you

We always enjoy our stay!

We always enjoy our stay there. We always tell folk about you and how handy you are to everything. Thanks for having us. I really love the retro look of the main shower block, mind you I love green!!!

Thank you very much and I will definitely stay again!

Our stay was made super comfortable and enjoyable by the friendly hospitality of the staff. We were accommodated when we phoned to say we may be late arriving and when we locked our key in the room and were due to return late after hours too…thank you very much and I will definitely stay again!

I would always recommend using Amber Park!

I would like to say that it was my third stay over the last ten years and I have always received a warm welcome. The park is also very convenient for getting into the city by bus. I would always recommend using Amber Park!

Best in Christcurch

We are from Oamaru and first stopped at this wonderful Holiday Park aprox 36 ago years and keep coming back even though we have over that period used another four Christchurch Holiday Parks, only one of those even come close to Amber Park!
In the last 10 years this is the only Park we and those travelling with us have used, its not only the variety of affordable accommodation but handy location/well maintained/clean, also the friendly host and staff and other visitors.
Having stopped in campervan or caravan/tourist flats /motel and most recently ensuite cabin we highly recommend.

Malc0lm McKenzie

Will definitely be returning

Everything in the Camp was above expectations . Will definitely be returning.

Denis

Exceptionally clean and well maintained

Everything was fine, exceptionally clean and well maintained. One of the best showers overall in our 4 week stay. Girls in the office were very nice and obliging. We did mention that you should contact the iSite as they told us there was no bus stop into town from this park, only the other one. We chose the park based on other reviews overriding the bus and were thrilled that there is actually the bus service but I am sure others make a decision based on what they are told. Thanks.

More than what I expected

I found the unit I had more than what I expected with made up bed and ensuite, perfect for a weary wanderer. Then I had tent up in corner for week. Quiet. Clean camp and facilities. Rate it 5*star.

Keith Roberts

Wonderful place, awesome staff

what a great place to stay, clean and welcoming, All the staff where respectful and polite and the accommodation was more than i expected.. Highly recommend this park to everyone.

Dingo

Staff were fantastic!

Very enjoyable. Staff were fantastic, helpful & room was very clean & cosy. Only thing we missed was not being able to cook with small stove in unit. Everything there apart from small two ring stove.. Apart from this 10 out of 10. Thanks so much. Kindest regards John & family Howick.

John & family

Great Service!

When we arrived we were put in a site that was muddy after the heavy rains that happened over the previous days. We asked to move to a different site and the team were very helpful and did some jigging around with the reservations and got us an asphalt site. We really appreciated it and it meant we weren’t dragging mud into our camper-van. great place to stay. i would highly recommend it.

Wunderbarer zentraler Campground und ein tolles Team

Der Amber Kiwi Holiday Park ist ein wunderbar geführter kleiner Campground in zentraler Lage von Christchurch. Er bietet auch weitere Unterkunftsmöglichkeiten, zu denen wir allerdings nichts sagen können, da wir bisher immer mit dem Camper dort waren. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Freundlichkeit aller Mitarbeiter und es hat uns gefreut, gleich beim Empfang mit Braden wieder ein vertrautes Gesicht zu sehen. Er ist ein sehr lieber Mensch und hat immer ein nettes Wort parat. Wir haben unsere Wunschsite erhalten, was uns sehr gefreut hat. Alles, was machbar ist, wird vom Team getan, um den Kunden glücklich zu machen. Wie schon erwähnt, liegt Amber Kiwi sehr nahe (ca. 5 km) an der Innenstadt an einer zentralen Strasse, die man jedoch nicht hört (hier hatten wir beim ersten Besuch Bedenken). Der ganze Grund ist toll gepflegt und hat einen wunderschönen und mit viel Liebe angelegten Rosengarten, in dem sich ein BBQ-Bereich befindet. Die Facilities sind extrem sauber. Der Flughafen und die Camper Rental Companies sind auch schnell erreicht, was den Amber Kiwi HP sehr interessant macht, um die ersten oder letzten Nächte dort zu verbringen bzw. auch, um sich Christchurch anzusehen und sein Campmobil in einer netten Gegend gut beschützt zu wissen. Wir können den Amber Kiwi Holiday Park nur loben und wärmstens empfehlen.

Steffen and Karin Duman

Try it you’ll love it !

We don’t have a caravan but have been staying in the units for over 30 years now, it’s great, try it you’ll love it!

Craig Dick

Great little holiday park

This is a small holiday holiday park, with good sized, well equipped motel unit. Staff are friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this park

Roz

Excellent small park.

Stayed on powered site and in Studio cabin. Friendly, helpful staff. Good amenities. Good value. With the current Christchurch traffic situation having a bus stop adjacent to the park was excellent. Definately recommend.

Peter Arney

Reaaly good site

Well placed for the bus into Christchurch with a friendly helpful staff. Clean and good quality facilities.

Iain Sweetnam

A great choice for a stay in Christchurch

We were very happy with our site and the facilities are excellent. The close proximity to the city make this a great choice for a stay in Christchurch.

We wouldn’t even contemplate going else where

We have stayed at your park in our motor home and now in a Motel unit and we can honestly say that we wouldn’t even contemplate going else where………..THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Park like setting

Great service, immaculately clean rooms, park like setting, bus stop in front, lovely place to come back to at the end of a busy day.

Joanne Dowling-Smith

Great Stay at Amber Park

Stacey on the front desk is so friendly and welcoming to us holiday makers. My motel unit was very well price and lovely and clean. Gardens are lovely at the Holiday Park. 10/10 for a lovely stay.

Donna Finlayson

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Service was great, room was great, but, we were most impressed with how clean the room was.. We have stayed in lots of different places and rate Amber Park highly. Thank you for your hospitality

Everything was excellent

Everything was excellent. It is also a perfect location for anyone going to a concert at the Horncastle Arena. Only a couple of blocks away. You may want to mention that in your advertising? Real handy location. I was there for the B52s and Simple Minds concert. Awesome!! Also handy to Riccarton Shopping Mall. Thankyou!

As always our stay here was faultless

As always our stay here was faultless. The owners are always very obliging and helpful. The beautiful gardens are a bonus!

Well positioned and friendly staff

Stayed here for 2 nights after our arrival in New Zealand. On site staff were very friendly and helpful. Good facilities and a very good base for exploring the local area.

Alun Owen

I would be back without hesitation, thank you.

We were only in for 1 night and had an early departure, our room was clean, comfortable and cosy, I would be back without hesitation, thank you.

Thanks for being accommodating!

Just a note to say thanks for accomodating our truck in your drive way. Made stay easier and safer for everyone. Cheers

Very impressed with the holiday park!

No. We thoroughly enjoyed our little stop over and wished we had a bit longer. Very impressed with the holiday park and double glazing on the windows! Shame about the freak wintry conditions in the middle of January.

Enjoyable stay

Most enjoyable stay. Have stayed before and will stay again.

Neville Crossman

Superb

Well done

You should be commended for having such a lovely park!

You should be commended for having such a lovely park. It’s clear that you take pride in the facilities and the amenities are the cleanest we’ve seen. Thank you for a lovely overnight stay with such friendly service.

We will definitely be back!

We will definitely be back! Excellent price, very clean tidy motel unit and close to the Christchurch Adventure Park for the boys and close to the shopping malls for me!

Great inner city camp site

Beautifully kept campsite, handy for the city and the airport.

Gillian clarkson

A very nice little holiday park

We were very happy with service. We are very thankful for all your help, especially in organising our accommodation. Very friendly hosts and accommodation was clean and tidy.
A very nice little holiday park, and kids loved the playground and trampoline.
Thank you.

A perfect place to be

We did visit Amber Park already end 2013, we found the park at internet, and it was for us the best place to stay here.
A short distance of Christchurch Airport, The Westgate Mall also very close and going to City Centre was also close enough for us.
The accommodation is very agreable , clean and with a good equipment.
When we decided to go back again to N.Z. for a holiday, we did book immediately the same accommodation.
The motelroom was refurbished, very nice and spent here a very good time.
We recommend everybody to stay there , when you wish to visit Christchurch for a couple of days.
The owners are very friendly and helpfull. A top Kiwi Holiday Park !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Arnold de Leeuw

Friendliest, most beautiful and clean park we have stayed at!

Friendliest, most beautiful and clean park we have stayed at! Felt like staying at a friend’s place, all the staff were so accommodating and helpful. Will be our first choice next time we’re in town. Thanks!

Amber Park

Always stay here when in Christchurch. Small grounds so no big crowds. Very friendly staff and beautiful rose gardens. Handy to Riccarton Mall

Les North

Good location, helpful staff

Second time staying here and it was just as good this time around. Very helpful, friendly staff. Clean tidy units, Bus stop just outside to take you into city.

Dianne Brown

Our stay

We stayed for four nights at this well maintained and kept camp. Would highly recommend to other travellers. It is not large but very central.

Raewyn Tucker

Amber Park Christchurch

This is a very well laid out site with good facilities and very helpful and friendly staff. An ideal place to stay to explore Christchurch with regular buses into the city from right outside the entrance. Thanks for a great stay at the end of our New Zealand holiday.

David Hedges

Amber Park Stay

I have always stayed at Amber Park whenever I visit Christchurch, since the early 1990’s. The cleanliness has been of the highest standard over all of those years. I stayed firstly in our caravan and in more recent years in the studio cabins, and have always remained impressed about the high standards maintained at this park. I can fully recommend this park for accommodation in Christchurch. A very friendly team.

Lee McLean

Amber Park is right up there with the best

My wife and I travel extensively and Amber Park is right up there with the best. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday park for many reasons such as value for money, location, friendliness of staff, cleanliness and it just has that x factor about it and oh ! the gardens ,there must be close to over 200 roses which are absolutely beautiful. I along with others I have spoken to would love to know the names of some of them. Thanks Amber Park staff, may you all have a wonderful Christmas and a new year. Cheers.

Graeme W Percy

A very special place!

A very special place to be, complete with the smell of roses. Love it. Thanks

The best stay in NZ!

The best stay in NZ … and I travel a lot !!! Whenever I am in Xchurch I go to Amber Park, …Thanks again to the team.

Thanks for your hospitality!

In our two weeks travelling the park would be rated as the top park out of the eight we stayed in. Thanks for your hospitality.

Christine Hayne

Everything made for a lovely relaxed stay. This was my 6th stay at Amber Park and have always comfortable and welcomed. Even the good weather played its part. Cheers Annette Davis and friends.
Xtra thanks for the caravan space.

Your camp is our favourite camp in Nz!

Your camp is our favourite camp in Nz so spotlessly Clean friendly staff
The gardens are second to none
My husband and I think you should be rated 6 or whatever the highest is as we can’t see how you could ever improve it
Gorgeous sweet peas in the ladies

Thanks for a fantastic stay!

We really enjoyed our stay and will be back next time we are visiting family in Christchurch. Thanks for a fantastic stay.

I would recommend anyone to stay there!

Our group has stayed at Amber Park for the past 5 years and we have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The facilities are always clean and tidy. I would recommend anyone to stay there.

Another great stay

This is the third time back here and will continue to be my first choice of stay if coming to Christchurch….great service, staff and facilities including friendly guests…

Thanks for a excellent end to our holiday!

Amber Park was a great place for us to spend the last few days of our South Island adventure. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. Again, thanks for a excellent end to our holiday!

Wendy and Ian Schofield

Thankyou

All good. We especially appreciated being able to clean and tidy up the campervan with the equipment you provided near the dump point. Thankyou.

Will definitely recommend and stay there again

We have a great stay. Braden and sharon has been there where we checked in late. And Braden has helped us to call and make sure our lost luggage is sent back to us at at the holiday park and sure enough the second night on our stay, we got our luggage back. Will definitely recommend and stay there again.

Twice in one month

Great service and facilities, stayed there twice in one month and would’ve been three had it not been booked out on the dates requested…..Friendly staff, very central and handy to amenities….

Taani Lasike

Happy with our stay, and will be coming back!

We were very happy with our stay and will be coming back, good value and cosy warm unit no 5. We liked that you were doing everything to be more energy efficient and that you cared about that. Being able to recycle also great. You are so close to everything. All good thank you.

Be back again, thanks!

Braden & Sharon,thanks,yep beaut time up there,staff also great,be back again,thanks!

Nandi and Dave

Holiday

Super friendly staff, really helpfull! Because of the olympics it was even possible for me to stay longer in the tv room if i wanted to check it out. This park is the closest to the town centre so thats a big pro! And then there is the super friendly staff, clean shower and toilets! Showers with decent pressure and even heating above it for in the cold winter months! PERFECT! If you wanna stay in Christchurch with your camper this is the place to be!

Michael Groen

A very clean and frendly stay thanks

A friendly stay, always helpful when asked. I stayed in one of the chalets and they were clean and tidy. Keep up the good work!

andrew davies

This is a great place to stay

The service and accommodation at Amber Park is excellent. We have stayed there on several occasions (in different facilities) and have never been disappointed. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Christchurch.
Thank you!

Mary Anne & Alex

Well priced family accommodation in a great location

We stayed in a two bedroom motel unit. It had everything we needed at a good price. Overall it was clean and tidy and suited us well.

Ursula McEntyre

THE place to stay if on a limited budget.

I cannot speak highly enough of Amber Park accommodation, my fourth stay there. I was upgraded at their initiative to a comfortable ensuite studio unit, and was able to retain it for a second night at the budget cabin rate. Very considerate service to an older guest. Friendly, obliging staff topped off the experience. Highly recommended.

Evan P

Clean en-suite, superb location, will be back again!

This is my second time staying with Amber Kiwi Holiday Park. I would certainly book my future stays with AKHP if I am visiting Christchurch again. Clean en-suite, friendly staffs and superb location! Thumbs up!

JY Low

Fantastic accommodation for a family

Very pleasantly surprised to find such well appointed accommodation here in Christchurch, the one bedroom apartment is immaculately clean and has all the facilities you could want. The heaters worked very effectively to heat the whole place very quickly and kept us very comfortable, so we didn’t even need the electric blankets on the bed. We got free wi-fi and the kids loved the playground, and the kitchen had all the crockery and utensils a family could need to self cater, all in very good condition. The location is perfect to access the city centre and the staff very friendly and helpful. We came back each day to find the towels replaced and the bin emptied, excellent service. Highly recommend this place to any travellers heading to Christchurch.

Stayed July 2015

Will stay again

Great place to stay, everything you need. Lovely friendly staff. Good rates. We stayed in our motorhome but there is something for everyone at this place, kids loved the playground. Very clean facilities.

Fab facilities & I’m fussy, showers were perfectly clean just what I needed, need I say more! Everything spotless that’s the way a campsite should be.

Stayed July 2015

Beautiful Holiday Park

The gardens at this holiday park are a delight. Stayed in a family studio (with small kitchen and ensuite) which was very good and met our needs. Park facilities were very good and kept clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bus stop outside the park and warehouse across the road if you needed anything while staying there. Walkable distance to Bush Inn or Riccarton shopping centres.

Stayed November 2015

A Beautiful and Comfortable Campervan Stop

It was the last stop before we ended our journey in New Zealand. The park is near to many of Christchurch’s attractions such as Hagley Park, the museum and Riccarton area. It’s a small place and that adds to the feeling of cosyness to it. I especially liked the garden there.. so beautiful and sweet…

Stayed November 2015

Very friendly Holiday Park

We were very impressed with this compact Holiday Park. A great location easily accessible. The grounds were impeccable, manicured lawns and beautiful roses everywhere. The facilities were very clean and checked regularly. Great kitchen and TV lounge.
Not that cheap, but given the location and facilities it was well worth it.
And many thanks to the friendly owners who were so helpful when we needed to check in early.. much appreciated!

Stayed December 2015

Small but perfectly formed

This holiday park is ideally located for visitors getting to know Christchurch. The amenities are very clean, tidy and well maintained. Not a large park so doesn’t get overcrowded. Dotted with beautiful rose bushes tended to by the owners. Bus route outside the front gate and shops across the road. Short trip into the city by bus via shopping centre. Highly recommended.

Stayed November 2015

Great little park

Sadly our last night spent in our camper van. This well kept and landscaped park with its clean facilities gave us a great end to our hols. The site is easy to get to or from the airport rv rental places. Friendly welcome even shown to our pitch and shown were to facilities were. Forget the green sinks they are clean with hot water. Pitches were good. A good kiwi site and the wifi worked.

Stayed February 2016

Great city campsite and cabins

We stayed in a cabin which comfortably slept four people. Nice and cosy with a spacious bathroom. Parking for one car at the front. We have two cars between us but could leave one at the entrance. We had a small stove, fridge and microwave which was fine for a few nights. Complimentary tea and coffee was replenished each day and the staff were very friendly. It is a small holiday park with communal kitchen, laundry and toilets/showers. All very clean and well maintained. The shower did seep towards the toilet and sink, we had to use a few extra towels to keep the water away from the edges of the room. Upon asking we were given a mop to help with this which was fine. We also stayed in the penthouse above the reception. Although modern in comparison it was quite a lot more and even the extra kitchen space and utilities and balcony looking onto the park wasn’t better than the wooden lodge we were in.
Worth a visit if you are a camper, tent or looking for a room.

Stayed September 2015

Top site

This is a really excellent site and well located for both the city and airport. It is very clean, efficiently run, and sensible value. All the amenities, toilets and showers are extremely clean and well maintained. Beautifully laid out site with flowers and rose arches. Receptionist is very helpful. Highly recommended.

Stayed March 2016

Excellent accommodation with good location

We booked for a studio ensuite which can accommodate five persons. Clean and tidy room with well maintained bathroom. Bath towels provided. The room is equipped with TV, kettle, fridge, microwave, pots, pans, and dining sets. Complimentary tea and coffee with fresh milk. The communal kitchen is just located next few doors.

The hosts are wonderful, very helpful and friendly. They tried their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible.The flowers and roses are beautifully planted. Highly recommended!

Bus stop just located outside. $3.50 to get to Christchurch Hospital (2 stops), which is the nearest stop to Punting on Avon River, Botanic Garden and Canterbury Museum (Tram stop No. 12).

Stayed March 2016

Excellent

I stayed here at the end of my New Zealand travels and the Amber Kiwi served to remind me of how exceptionally well New Zealand does holiday parks.

I stayed in a cabin that was equipped with everything I needed – from towels to microwave, pots and pans, and the communal kitchen was three doors away. This place is absolutely spotless and staff work hard to make it that way.

It’s a city park so not as roomy for vans as those upcountry but the Amber Kiwi makes the most of its green spaces and lovely gardens.

The bus outside will take you downtown, and Riccarton shops are a few blocks away. Highly recommended, I would definitely stay again.

Stayed March 2016

Very Nice And Well Kept

Very clean and well kept. Tidy lawns. Showers are great. Nice community kitchen. Couches and TV next to kitchen to lounge in.

We stayed in our camper van, not in a suite or room. Each car spot came with hook ups for electricity. A place to dump grey water and refill. In the middle of facility is a childrens play area and trampoline. There is also a community grill area with shade and tables.

There is wifi but you have to pay for a card that you register.

This place served us well. Specifically for the rugby game which was about a 20-30 min. walk to the stadium and back.

The place is respectfully quiet among the neighbors. The man who greeted us when checking in was nice and friendly.

We would definitely stay here again if in C’Church.

Stayed April 2015, travelled as a couple

Excellent Motor Camp
