Whangarei TOP 10 Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Whangarei Top 10 Holiday Park is located at the east side of town, 2.5kms from the centre and next to the river. At the other side of the river you find hiking trails up to Mt Parihaka and to the 26m high Whangarei Falls (one hour one-way).

The park offers cabins, studio units and powered & unpowered sites. We had a powered site. The park is adequate and quiet. Facilities encompass free showers, kitchen, dining area, TV room, internet room, BBQ and laundry. All is clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi internet is extra.

Staffs were friendly and helpful. The park apparently is popular with travelers to and from Northland. Considering its location we found the caravan park good value for what it offers and a nice place to stay.

Thank you so much for your detailed review of our Park. We are particularly delighted that you commented on our friendly, helpful customer service, as well as the cleanliness of our facilities. We pride ourselves on both, as being extremely important aspects of our business, and our Qualmark 4-plus star rating confirms our commitment to these. We hope you got the chance to enjoy some of the wonderful walks in Parihaka Scenic Reserve, including the one to Whangarei Falls.

Wishing you safe and happy future travels

We stayed in a standard cabin for two nights, on our way to Russell, Bay of Islands. It was clean, quiet, and we enjoyed the short walk to the shops and restaurants. On our way back to the Auckland airport, we decided to stay here again, so we could have a good night's sleep, before our long flight back to Canada. The staff were all so friendly and when I was paying for another standard room, the manager heard me telling the receptionist we were flying out in the morning and needed a good night's sleep. A few minutes later, he came over to our cabin and told us he had upgraded our room to a motel unit, at no cost, because he knew the people coming into the standard cabin next to us, would not arrive until late at night. He did not want us to be woken up and not get a good night's rest. What a wonderful surprise! It once again confirmed our love for New Zealand and their friendly, helpful people.

Thanks so much for your great feedback about your stay with us. We are delighted that we were able to 'go the extra mile' when you returned to stay with us before flying out. Having flown long-haul to Canada ourselves, we know what it's like! Hopefully you'll get to experience our Kiwi hospitality again, sometime in the future. Until then, we wish you safe and happy travels.

Thanks so much for your review. We're glad you had a pleasant stay, and took advantage of some of the lovely walks nearby, including the easy 1 km stroll along quiet side streets to the nearest supermarket and shops, and also the lovely bushwalks, along the river, in Parihaka Scenic Reserve which is directly on our boundary. We are delighted that our top priorities of cleanliness and friendliness were noted too.

Loved the surroundings and everything is lovely and clean. I booked a variety of cabins/units and they were all good value for money. Nice and quiet at night to sleep. Staff were very helpful when making group bookings and accommodated my changes with a quick response and no fuss. Would stay here again.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We agree that our Holiday Park has a lovely peaceful ambiance and is set amidst stunning surroundings, with Parihaka Scenic Reserve right on our boundary. We hope you had the time to enjoy one of the many bush or riverside walks directly accessible from our Park. With our top priorities being friendliness and cleanliness, we very much appreciate your comments on both of those aspects, too.
Wishing you happy future travels,

We (elderly couple) had booked an ensuite cabin for 3 nights, and enjoyed the nice, quite place close to forest walkways. People were very friendly and helpful. Everything in the cabin was clean and well maintained. Unfortunately we had some problems with the internet that could not be solved though the lady at the front desk did her best.

Thanks so much for your feedback. We agree that the peaceful ambiance of our smaller Park is something very special, and is complemented superbly by our stunning NZ bush backdrop. We hope you enjoyed some of the lovely bush and riverside walks, directly accessible from our Park. We are delighted with your comments, and that we delivered, on our top priorities of friendliness and cleanliness too.

Small camping ground. But facilities very good and very clean. Showers great. Very good water pressure and nice and hot. Lots of sink space with places to put your things. Staff at desk very helpful. Loved the bush walks right next to the camp. We walked into town which was about 30 min through the bush and then along the streets. It was a nice easy walk. Would have liked to have done more of the walks but we ran out of time.

Room Tip: We had a powered site for a campervan so didn't stay in any room

Thanks so much for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed our stylish, newly refurbished bathroom amenities, and also our very special scenic bush setting. We encourage all of our guests to take a bush or riverside walk, if time allows, in the stunning, internationally-awarded Parihaka Scenic Reserve, that's right on our boundary. It's a perfect example of NZ bush, and was once the site of one of NZ's largest Maori pa (villages).
Wishing you happy future travels,

We stayed here for two nights on a powered site with our motorhome. Very helpful staff, one of the ladies on reception helped sort out my Wi-Fi that I had purchased from a previous Top 10 site. I thought she would lock the door next time she saw me coming ( only joking) I needed help and she was brilliant. The site is lovely and quiet, very well maintained. Cooking and laundry facilities are first class, as were the showers and toilets. This site is a credit to Top 10.
