The Brookby has been very well set out and maintained by its owners Yvonne & Keith Burns and is one of the very best Motels that we have stayed in over 18 years of coming to and travelling in NewZealand. It tales a little finding as it is at the back of Thames, close to the local Hospital, but well...

We were in the studio : we had a kettle, a fridge and a little bit a space to "cook". Morever, there is a small deck outside in front of the room which is so pleasant. The room has been carefully furnished. Everything was very clean.

For those that travel light or solo travellers, this budget room ($95 a night, room number 3) has everything you could ask for. Thoughtfully laid out with maximum provision of storage designed into the room. A delightful location close to, but a short walk away from, the centre of town and backed by a babbling brook, the hosts made us...

We stayed here for two nights whilst cycling the length of NZ. Keith happily locked our bikes away in the large garage. The studio unit was beautifully done out and complete with lots of extras such as plunger coffee. The bed was extremely comfortable and we appreciated the quiet location.

We were lucky to stay in a beautiful room adjoining the main house. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. It was only 5 minutes walk to the centre of town and thus near to restaurants and shops. Breakfast was available if ordered and hot drinks could be made in the room. Well recommended

Arrived in Auckland from Vancouver via a 14 hour flight plus time in customs/bioscreening. Picked up our car and headed out for Thames to our pre-booked stay at the Brookby Motel. They were accommodating and had our room ready when we arrived in the early afternoon after a leisurely drive from the airport. Fresh milk for our coffee, a quick...

What a find! We stayed here for one night in Thames in mid-November on our way around the Coromandel Peninsula. Freshly refurbished with everything needed. Separate bedroom with lovely comfortable bed. Main room has kitchenette, dining table and lounge area. The bathroom is small, but excellently designed. There is a cosy balcony at the back where the bubbling brook can...

Stayed 2nights in 1bedroom unit and 1 night in small studio. Whilst the exterior reveals its age, the interiors are fresh and with modern facilities and decor. The 1bedroom unit is very suitable for a longer stay with agood range of equipment for self catering. The small studio is still bigger than a tent or caravan but more suited to...
