Thank you for taking the time to post a review. A conversation with us while you were here may have helped to eliminate some of your problems or at least further explain them. Ants can be a problem at any time when food is left out, otherwise we do not tend to see them. Our native bush cockcroaches are not...

Enjoyed our stay here. Showers were the hottest ones we've been to so far. Facilities were good for what we needed. Only downside was dryer No. 1 was not drying properly and we ended up having to take our clothes to the laundrymat in town due to the time we had to leave in the morning .

Hi Jacqueline Thank you for your lovely review. Sorry your clothes didn't dry in time! WE will check out the dryer to see what the hold up was. Sometimes it can just be the type of items in there or that there are too many things at a time. Isn't it sad that holidays still mean you have to do...

Stayed only one nigh in campervant and found staff helpful and facilities quite tired but certainly clean enough with good kitchen facilities...unfortunately the hot water went off through the night and wasn't on for a long time in the morning..indeed we were offered a later check out for showers to warm up but alas, had to get on the road....

Thank you for taking some time to write a review. We are so sorry about the hot water! There was a power cut or power surge that evening at it really played havoc with the park. Our kitchen facilities are scheduled for a bit of a face lift next winter so you will have to come back and see us...

Spacious tidy site for our caravan, but access roads rather narrow with tight corners. Elderly but clean facilities, nothing supplied to wipe sinks clean after use. Well placed for walking to town or beaches.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Park. My apologies for no cloths in the kitchen. A quick message to us would have easily rectified the matter. We are here to help. Scallop Festival was busy and thankfully the weather Gods were being nice! When we do get full up it can be a bit tricky maneuvering the...

A very belated review - our apologies for the oversight Georgina & Warwick! We had a fabulous stay at MBHP in January & look forward to returning. We booked a two bedroom fully self-contained unit - compact but perfect for our family of 2 adults & 4 teenage girls. Georgina went above & beyond with accommodating our cars & boat,...

Hi Kelly-Jackson clan More than happy to wait for that review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. So many of our guests love the accessibility to town and yet while you are in the Park it feels miles from anywhere. We hope you will be back this summer!

Very happy with our recent experience with Mercury Bay Holiday Park from start to finish. Lovely hosts - efficient and super helpful with local knowledge and tips. Incredibly clean, and very much geared to families and tourists looking for a relaxed but well run environment. 10 minute stroll to heart of the town, all flat level. Very peaceful. Would recommend...

We stayed there in our motorhome while attending a training course. It was outside the main high season so very peaceful and quiet. Lovely people, excellent amenities, clean and pretty place. Would recommend this place to everyone.

Not a bad spot to stay when you are working! It is our little oasis just a short stroll from town. See you again.

Got a powered site, clean freshly mowed grass site. Simple amenities but again very clean and well kept. Missing the extras that other parks have, that's the only reason why marks aren't any higher. Safe stop over and only a short 800m walk to the beach.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are curious as to what you felt was missing as we offer a TV room, book exchange, hot showers at no extra cost, clean toilets, laundry facilities, camp kitchen, and a playground, all set in beautiful park surrounds. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Please come again.

Stayed here for three nights in a studio, room was extremely clean, comfy and perfect for what we needed. The facilities were good and staff very helpful. Walking distance to Whitianga town, and although it was really busy was perfect.

Easter was an amazing weekend - the weather was fantastic so as usual Whitianga was humming! Our park is great only being 400 metres to the shops and a further 400 metres to the beach but tucked away and nice and quiet. Thanks for the 5 stars!
