Mercury Ridge offers elegant boutique Coromandel accommodation with enviable views across picturesque Cooks Beach and Mercury Bay. The charming, modern mediterranean villa is nestled in an elevated, north-facing position encased by an orchard, vineyard and native reserve. Here, you’ll experience a peaceful and relaxing stay among nature with achingly beautiful scenery at every turn. Mercury Ridge is located enviably in one of the most scenic, convenient and peaceful parts of the Coromandel Peninsula. It is only a few minutes’ walk to the charming township of Cooks Beach or a short, 15-minute drive to the famous Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove, some of New Zealand’s most recognisable attractions.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fantastic time here. The location and views are stunning and the property is beautifully done. The host was very friendly and thoughtful. We will definitely be back if we can. It is well worth it.

A great place with a fantastic view over the bay and surroundings. And Rick, the owner and host, is the best host you can think of. Only a few rooms make this feeling you are visiting his home, and a nice breakfast is also served each day. They even served us a great Christmas dinner which we ate together with Rick and his son. A great stay we always will remember

Cooks Gate is a stunning house in a magnificent location above Cooks Beach. The views are spectacular, the rooms are comfortable (we were in the smallest of the four available and it was lovely), and the breakfast was delicious. Rick, the host, is charming and all of his suggestions of things to do were spot on - he even booked them for us! The whole house can be booked - it would be an amazing venue for a family reunion!

We stayed here with a group of friends last weekend - and what a fantastic time we had. Cooks Gate lodge has everything going for it - stunning views, winery next door, amazing sleeping areas, awesome open fire, great Gourmet BBQ outside, Pizza oven, huge entertaining area and super sized kitchen and storage for everything you can imagine. I would not hesitate to recommend this place as a perfect place to meet with a group of friends, or family get togethers. The owners were very accommodating and nothing was a problem for them the whole time we were there. We will be back to stay that's for sure!

We recently stayed here for a work function and the property was amazing. it catered to our group of 12 perfectly and we had the whole lodge for use. The bedrooms are beautiful and the grounds are perfectly maintained. Looking for an excuse to go back and stay again!
