“Hosts fantastic, walk to town centre”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

Us and a group of friends spent the weekend at Mercury Bay Holiday Park during a Hot Rod event. We were already impressed that they had emailed us all ahead and advised us of their preparations for us and our hot rods (including car wash and special parking). We arrived and were greeted with warm smiles and great hospitality. The campground is beautifully landscaped, clean and tidy. The owners are obviously very proud of their Park. We couldn't fault anything about our stay (we stayed in a two bedroom cabin) and would recommend this Park to anyone, whether camping or cabins. We will return definitely!

Room Tip: The studio cabin (no actual bedroom) where our friends stayed would be our pick next time!

We stayed in a Two Bedroom cabin, very tidy and clean. Camp facilities were excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful. Walking distance into town. Would stay there again without hesitation. Tracey Colin and Samuel

This camping ground is one of those secret gems. It is unbelievably so close to town ( walking distance of 400m) yet you feel like your miles away when it comes to peace and quiet. The grounds are well cared for and amenities are excellent. Camp managers are extremely friendly and obliging especially when it came to accomodating our overly large american RV. While we stayed in the RV, the camp ground also had a large selection of motel/ cabins that look excellent value. we look forward to returning to Mercury Bay Campground and would reccomend it to all

Excellent friendly staff. Were there for scallop festival so very busy but nothing a problem for office staff. Good facilities, handy location. good value. Made extra room for us to park our hot rods which was very appreciated without us even asking. quite location even though it was busy place and a easy walk into centre of town if you wish. Motel room well equipped

Room Tip: had two bedroom motel unit with facilities. A free upgrade from a one bedroom with share facilities

After travelling all day it is so nice to be greeted so warmly and to share some really comfortable accommodation. I find the friendly, no fuss atmosphere makes a break away from home so enjoyable and to be right in the heart of Whitianga, in fact within easy walking distance to town centre, a real plus. The grounds and the cabins are clean and tidy and a credit to the hosts. It is a 1000kms form home and worth every one of them. See you next year!
Thanks again,
Noel.

Room Tip: From the rooms I have seen, all are of a great standard and one as good as the other.

Our first impression was great, fantastic lush tropical type garden around the office area was a real pick me up on such a dull winters day. The second impression of the smiling, delightful office lady who we found out later was the manager, was a breath of fresh air. This was followed up by a very friendly knowledgeable chap who was her husband - what a team! You could tell they loved their property because it showed - it was clean, tidy and obviously in the throws of continuous upgrade. We stayed for three days - the price was good, metered showers which were hot with fantastic pressure. Easy walk into town to all the fantastic eateries and things to do - make sure you go to The Lost Spring and try the museum - quaint!
