Stayed here on our second night in the Nth Island. Wanted to stay at a Top 10 as our previous trip to the Sth Island left us with good memories of the Top 10 Chain. Funnily enough the owner of this park (Nick) use to be the manager of the park where we first purchased our Top 10 membership. The...

Working late so had to make an overnight stay in Whangarei. This was as budget as I could get, the backpackers rates required a membership I did not have. Comfortable single cabin, paper thin walls, which became apparent when the neighbours got up at dawn to provide their version of the dawn chorus. My bad luck. It's really a campground...

Hello Robert J., The birds we have as neighbours do put on a wonderful concert in the morning, even if it is a bit too early for most people to enjoy if they've been working late. Our cabins are inspected yearly for the building WOF, so we can guarantee they all comply with current building codes. We take great pride...

Stayed here for 3 nights between Christmas and New Years and it was a most enjoyable experience. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the local area giving us lots of ideas of what to do. Also the wifi is good too.

Really good value for clean and spacious cabins...we booked for 7 nights and travelled throughout the days. Always lovely returning to tidy, clean accommodation. Highly recommend if happy to have your own room with semi kitchenette and walk outside to big kitchen, bathrooms and showers. Bonus with the pool and spa ☺️

I've booked on the YHA website but the GPS guided me to somewhere on the top of the hill. If you use GPS, type in Whangarei Holiday Park and not Whangarei YHA. The holiday Park is not big but has provides campsite, power site, dormitory , budget cabin and standard cabin. Facilities: swimming pool, hot tub, BBQ area.

Hey LilyChak, Glad you were able to find us, despite the GPS mistake. Thank you for the information, and letting people know of the potential problem. Thank you for your review.

A perfect two nights-stop for our family! Budget but still clean, and the owner is outstanding. Very friendly and really wants to help - very appriciated! The bbq area is nice, and we enjoyed a bath in the hot tub after a long day on the roads. Very close, five minutes walk, to the beautiful Whangarei Falls. Dont miss!

Hey Ida T., We put a great deal of time into renovating the hot tub over the winter, so we are glad you were able to enjoy it while you were here. Hope you are enjoying your time in Northland. Thank you for your review.

We stayed here for two nights. Facilities are very acceptable - good kitchen, very nice outside dining area set in the garden campgrounds, excellent toilets and showers - and the owner goes the extra mile to give helpful suggestions. Excellent value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family-run backpackers and holiday park in a semi-rural setting two-minutes' walk away from the beautiful Whangarei waterfalls and scenic walking tracks. Stroll to town along bush-lined riverside walks or laze the day away beside the swimming pool. Evenings are for soaking in the hot tub and sharing stories around the BBQ. Our aim is to provide clean, comfortable accommodation in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Located 5kms north east of Whangarei City centre on the Twin Coast Highway, we provide an ideal base for diving and exploring the Poor Knight Islands. Beautiful coastal beaches and Tutukaka with its marina are a short drive away. We can organise diving, snorkelling and kayaking at the Poor Knights with arranged transport from the front gate available. Local bus stops, shops and a supermarket are within a short walk. Internet Provided. CityLink Bus# 3 and 3a bus stop 300m down the road. We look forward to having you stay with us. ~Martin and Team ... more   less
