Great stay. Garth and Adrienne made very effort to make our stay memorable. The tea and scones on arrival were delicious. The room was delightful with many very thoughtful extras; particularly the two suitcase0 holders ( only time I have seen two per room). Breakfast was delicious, but most of all Garth's very helpful tour guide information was well appreciated... More

Thanks Jaz! Garth says "Well done, the Irish in Chicago - and good luck for the 6 Nations." We really enjoyed your company, and in fact you ended up with a great 'mix' whilst here. Come back and see us some time. More

Garth and Adrianne are charming and helpful hosts added to excellent accommodation and a great breakfast. Well informed about local sights worth visiting and with quaint suggestions. Garth volunteered to go on line to settle our dues for the tollroad. Anna from The Netherlands

We stayed at Cotswold Cottage in Thames for only one night whilst attending a family funeral. We could not have asked for a more pleasant place to stay, as the hosts were very welcoming, the room was lovely, beautiful views, comfortable bed and a really tasty hearty breakfast to round things off nicely. We would not hesitate to highly recommend... More

Cotswold Cottage is a delightful place to stay when visiting the Coromandel. Beautiful views of the river that runs through Thames, and the mountains in the background. The room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom spacious with a full bathtub. Delicious "Kiwi" breakfast, which is the full "English" breakfast that I am familiar with.

I spent two months traveling around NZ, Australia, and Fiji, and I would say that Cotswold Cottage was the cutest out of all the places I stayed.

We had a lovely weekend at Cotswold. Our room was large and couldn't be faulted for maintenance or cleanliness. Our bathroom had a large shower and spa bath. Heaters and blankets ensured we weren't cold. Little extras like complimentary chocolates and darker towels for ladies with make-up were really appreciated. Breakfast was delicious. Both of us liked our first breakfast... More
