What lovely hosts, Paul and Chris are great, friendly,helpful yet unassuming .... this a superb place to hang out and enjoy the attraction colomandal has to offer. We started in the cottage which is beautifully appointed with many special little touches like fresh flowers, home made marmalade,fresh linen and bath robes ...everything is spotless and well presented... five star!!!

Mussel Bed is a great place to stay in the beautiful Coromandel. The rooms are well furnished and very comfortable, having read previous reviews I was a little worried about road noise being a super light sleeper, however this was not a problem at all - didn't even really notice the road. The breakfast is delicious and the baking is...

We were in the cottage on a self catering basis. We enjoyed our stay in the lovely mezzanine bedroom/sitting room although to be excellent it would have been lovely to have had en-suite upstairs. My sister who slept in the downstairs bedroom thought the bedroom good but would have preferred to have had the vacuum cleaner etc in a cupboard....

Mussel Bed B&B is a purpose built row of units in Chris & Paul's beautiful garden. It was so peaceful and the room was well equipped, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was chosen the night before from a menu and brought to your room on a large tray when you wanted it. Ours was set out on a table in the...

We are from the UK and this is our second stay at Mussel Bed. We discovered it on a previous trip and loved it. So this time we saved it for the last 3 days of our NZ trip as a special treat. Chris and Paul's warm welcome made it feel like coming home. Our room, the Victorian suite, which...

This is a lovely B&B with three nicely designed Mediterranean styled buildings around a central courtyard driveway. The rear gardens are well maintained and lead to the stream that you can borrow kayaks to paddle along down to the beach (sadly the creek is much abused by mankind and doesn't really offer much in the way of natural beauty til...

Thanks Adam & Anthony for your comments. You probably will have realised in booking with us that it is very difficult to find a self-contained cottage like ours for just 2 nights stay during this peak holiday time in Cooks Beach in January so therefore the pricing of our cottage is at its highest for a minimum stay and becomes...
