Mercury Bay Holiday Park

Reviewed 10 March 2014

We stayed here in our tent for three nights and found it was very good.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The tent sites were flat and a good size, with plenty of room for parking.
Camp facilities were very good, well maintained and spotless. Everything was so good, we didn't even bother unpacking our cooker and kettle but used the camp kitchen and barbeques for everything.
It was close enough to the town and ferry to walk.
We would recommend this camp to anyone.

We had a two bedroom unit which was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The one exception to this was that there was no coffee maker, BUT the manager lent us her personal coffee press which was much appreciated. Having the pool available was a nice addition.
The location was very convenient to the beach and within an easy walk to Whitianga town center. Hot Water beach is also nearby.

Hats off (or in my case - Helmet) to the hosts (Helena & Craig) for such a great stay in Whitianga. Prime location and great rooms, if I had a tow bar on the bike, I would have taken my room with me. The hosts go out of there way to make sure that everyone's trip is memorable and thanks to Craig (high five Hacksaw!!), cheers to you to going that extra mile!

We stayed 3 nights in our tent in Febuary and were impressed with the cleanliness of the site, the large pitching sites and the great facilities that were spotless. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Will defiantly come again.

I stayed here a for 5 nights in February, with a few friends. We were camping there so I can't comment on the rooms. But the owners were lovely people, the facilities were brilliant, the staff were amazingly friendly, not very expensive, and the pool was a added bonus. Would recommend to all!(:

We were there for 5 nights in January had a 2 bedroom cabin was just perfect. Big enough for 2 adults and an 8 year old.

8 year old had an awesome time and didn't want to go home, he loved the pool and the playground.

Perfect place to stay easy walk into town restaurants, to the ferry, and the beach.

Would certainly stay again and would recommend to anyone.

The only down side was the comfort of the bed.

Hi Stephanie, thanks for bringing the family to enjoy a stay with us. We get a lot of great feedback about how close to town we are and how much fun kids have in our safe environment. Could you contact us re the bed? We'd be interested to know what the comfort issue is as its quite a new bed - was it soft/firmness or size or something else? See you all again soon.

The owners were very thoughtful, we road our Motor Bike and they offered wood so we could park next to our cabin, and a hair dryer as I didn't bring one in my luggage, the cabin was well layed out and clean and fresh, we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful spot!
