Queenstown Holiday Park & Motels Creeksyde was purpose built in 1987 for campervans by Tonnie and Erna Spijkerbosch. They had a vision to build a Holiday Park with facilities far above anything on offer in camp grounds at the time. Over the years the park has expanded and now offers a full range of delightful sites & a variety of accommodation options, set alongside Horne Creek in a garden setting with lots of quirky recycled art scattered around for guests to enjoy.
Creeksyde hit the headlines from opening day; at our official opening the Christchurch Wizard cast a spell and Creeksyde was on the road to success. In our first year we received a commendation for facilities at the NZ Tourism Awards. Creeksyde continues to receive recognition from bodies such as the local Chamber of Commerce and Business Development Quality Awards; usually an award entered by big business so a great achievement for us little guys!
Creeksyde has been finalist in the AA Spirit of Hospitality Awards twice and winners in 2003. A Certificate of Excellence has been received for the past 3 years from tripadvisor, one of the largest online independent review sites. Tonnie, Erna & the Creeksyde team believe in providing a great place for our guests to stay. We have high standards of customer service, comfort, cleanliness, and of course a little fun!
Creeksyde has been environmentally aware since inception. In 2018 we became the first property in New Zealand, and one of only 15 in the world, to achieve EarthCheck's highest accolade of Master Certification for our 15 years' commitment to implementing world-class green initiatives.
EarthCheck Certified is a program delivered by EC3 Global and is considered to be the world’s most credible environmental benchmarking and certification program (social, environmental and financial) for the travel and tourism sector.
Queenstown Holiday Park & Motels Creeksyde is committed to promoting environmental awareness and continually improving our own environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy. We actively encourage all guests and suppliers to do the same.
Creeksyde has been environmentally aware since inception. We offer some 85 campervan, caravan and tent sites and 23 accommodation options, ranging from a simple bedroom to a 2 bedroom Motel Apartment. The overall park area was designed with an aim to provide as pleasant, green, and relaxing an area as possible within the inner urban confines of an alpine tourist destination.
All employees have a responsibility to ensure that the aims and objectives of this policy are met.
Creeksyde plans to be involved with EarthCheck indefinitely and to use the annual process as guidance for improving results.
