“Impressive ensuite units perfect for a short stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I love the Top10 holiday parks for affordable but clean and quiet accommodation. This is a busy park even in the quiet winter period but I can see why - smart units, super clean shared facilities and friendly staff.

The staff are well informed and keen to share their local knowledge. It is walkable from the town centre but would be better for those with transport.

The double bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on in ages although those in the bunks get thinner less comfortable mattresses.

Stayed in a campervan for three nights in June. All the staff were very friendly, from receptionists, to cleaners and the night security chap.and the place was very clean. Great little TV room - which was perfect in the evenings for me in my very small camper van, now that it's pretty chilly at night. It had good sofas, and more importantly, a heater!
Went for a great walk from the back of the site over to Whangerei falls - it's a long way, but worth it (over two and a half hours for the round trip and wear decent walking shoes).
Great for a city site.

Thanks very much for your feedback Karen. Our top priorities here at Whangarei TOP 10 Holiday Park, are friendliness and cleanliness, so we are delighted that we totally delivered on both counts! Great that you took a walk, directly accessible from our Park, through our stunning native forest Reserve to Whangarei Falls - it is definitely worth the walk - especially as Parihaka Reserve has recently been awarded the prestigious international Green Flag Award (1 of just 14 awarded in the Southern Hemisphere).
Wishing you safe future travels.

This park is in a great central location but you wouldn't know it as it is very quiet and park like! Very clean and a great 10 minute shower limit! Good recycling areas, and Julie in the office is very nice and helpful

Thanks so much for your valued feedback (especially appreciated, coming from others in the visitor accommodation industry). We agree that our central location in Whangarei is a huge advantage, and being a smaller Park bordered by native NZ trees, we are renowned for our peaceful setting. We also pride ourselves on our Enviro-Silver status, for our care and attention to our environment and sustainable business practices, and are always looking for ways to improve. Cleanliness and friendliness are also top priorities, so we are thrilled to have delivered on both, as well.

Cheers

A fantastic spot just North of the city. Helpful staff and very clean and comfortable self contained units and facilities alike. Quiet and safe. Highly recommend this Park, a regular for me on business trips.

Room Tip: Self Contained Cabins are Excellent!

Thanks for your review Paula. We are so pleased that you had a great stay, and found our Park perfect for your stay in Whangarei. We know that because we are a smaller Park, tucked down a quiet side street ( in fact we are the only Holiday Park in Whangarei that is away from busy main roads) and adjoining internationally award-winning Parihaka Scenic Reserve, we have a wonderful peaceful and cosy 'ambiance'. We look forward to welcoming you back next time.

We had people to visit in Whangarei so spent a night here on our way home from a tour of Northland. Our en suite cabin was booked online in advance, an easy, simple process with their booking system allowing us to see what was available, the cost and a good description of the facilities.
Our unit was a spotless, well appointed studio cabin, with most of the trimmings of a good motel for a much lower price. There was a good bathroom with an excellent shower, and ample hot water. The main room had a small fridge, toaster and kettle, and a rather noisy, but very effective heater attached to the wall. We arrived in pouring rain, after a wet day on the road, so the latter was a godsend for drying gear. Some of the windows had security stays, a good feature for warm nights that many much pricier places lack.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and provided a town map and directions on how to find places to eat and various attractions we might want to see. There are a range of long and short walks starting from the Park, and the town centre is about a 15 minute walk away. There was ample parking beside our unit.
We would definitely stay here again.

This was one of my longest stops in new zealand so far. Holiday park is situated in amazing location, just next to nice mountain. There are plenty of nice walks just couple minutes away. Holiday park staff is amazing and very friendly. All facilities were great, cabins were great and clean. Internet was very cheap (5$ for 100GB). Really peaceful place for total relaxation!

Thanks for your feedback Eduard. It is very much appreciated by the hardworking team here at Whangarei TOP 10 Holiday Park. We know that we are very lucky to be situated in an amazing location, with wonderful views and ambiance, and yet are so close to Whangarei city centre. Glad that you did some of our lovely bush and riverside walks through our internationally awarded Parihaka Scenic Reserve, that is right on our boundary, too. As one of the smaller Holiday Parks in NZ, we can pretty much guarantee peacefulness, and we pride ourselves on our reputation for cleanliness and friendliness. Wishing you safe travels in the future.

Stayed 4 nights and had a great time exploring local area. Walked into town centre 2.5 km so glad it was downhill. Lovely riverside complex, and excellent view points across the area. Really good place to explore Northland. The site was always clean, fresh and exceptionally well maintained. The staff were always happy to help @ very knowledgeable about best experiences and best value. Thanks everyone
