At Mercury Ridge, the Health and Safety of our guests, family and staff is a priority.

We have always met or exceeded the NZ government, Ministry of Health (NZ), and the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommendations for safety policies in place to minimise the spread of Covid-19, including contact tracing, personal hygiene (including proper handwashing and/or use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers), mask-wearing, social distancing, and robust cleaning and sterilisation practices.

We will continue to follow Ministry of Health guidance and any applicable government requirements (such as vaccine passes), should they apply.

We are offering flexible booking arrangements during these uncertain times.  Anyone who has booked direct with Mercury Ridge will be able to move their booking to a later date without penalty should Government COVID 19 travel restrictions apply. This means there will be no change fees* for guests who book with us direct through our website and need to cancel due to Government COVID 19 travel restrictions. *Seasonal rate differences may apply if you wish to rebook in a different season. 

Note this only applies to cancellations made as a result of COVID 19 travel restrictions and/or lockdown levels in New Zealand.


If for any reason, Mercury Ridge is unable to accommodate you after your booking is confirmed, we will notify you immediately by e-mail. Mercury Ridge is an accommodation provider located in Whitianga, New Zealand. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Under no circumstances will the details of guests be shared amongst individuals nor be distributed to third party organisations without consent.
