This is a very nice B&B run by pleasant people! The couple that operate it are interested in their guests enjoying all that the Coromandel has to offer. The breakfast was pleantiful and delicious I'd certainly stay there again.

Beautiful setting, delicious and generous breakfast! Very helpful hosts with good recommendations for dinner and travel advice. They even checked the road conditions for our trip as some roads had been washed out and gave us a map to follow. The rooms were super comfy and clean. We enjoyed the hot tub too!

Hi, and thank you for your lovely review. It was such an awful time for overseas tourists to be staying, and we were very keen to ensure that no-one got stuck by road closures or other problems! Hope all went well for you once you left us.

A lovely stay with superb hosts on elevated and sunny north facing site. A good springboard for exploring the Coromandel Peninsula. Our room very comfortable with views over the racecourse. Would stay here again.

We have stayed here several times and enjoy it each time. There are three different rooms so it is nice to go back and sample what each different room has to offer. Quiet and beautiful location. We were there during a cyclone and the hosts were so helpful in finding out about road conditions etc. Lovely cozy place.

Gosh, I think that period will be etched in peoples' memories for a long time. It's good that you were able to make the most of things despite the weather, and we are pleased that we made things comfortable during your stay. Don't let it put you off for another visit! Thanks for taking the time to review us.

We we're staying for two nights at the end of march 2017 at this place. It was very beautiful in spite of the bad weather (we had much rain). The Hosts, Adrienne and Garth, we're so nice ans helped us feeling like at home!!

Thank you for your positive review, considering the terrible weather while you were here. We're glad you felt comfortable here. Hope you went on to experience better weather after your stay in Thames! A good reason to return to NZ some time!

A very comfortable bed-and-breakfast in a beautiful location on the outskirts of one of New Zealand's oldest towns. The host had an excellent suggestion for dinner (Grahamstown Bar & Diner) and some good ideas for our drive around the Coromandel peninsula, and he produced a delicious breakfast.

We booked this property in Thames on our way to visit the Coromandel peninsula. Our stay was great, as the room was comfortable, with many extra touches that added pleasure to the stay. In the morning we were surprised even more, as the breakfast offered was a gourmet meal that included mostly home-made items. The quality and presentation was at...

Garth and Adrienne made us feel so welcome it was like a home from home. Our room, Neatherwood Suite, was better than many of the top class hotels we stayed in during our recent tour of New Zealand. It had the added advantage of the personal touch brought by our charming hosts. Breakfasts were a delight and the help and...
