We had rooms 16 and 17 and they were near new with King Size beds. These units were great for 2 couples/families travelling together .Other units were older. Quiet and clean . Air conditioned. Free Wifi and a well stacked kitchen area. We were amazed that the motel wasn’t full .It deserved to be, based on our experience.Well appointed, all...

After a long flight from Australia, Thames is an easy drive from Auckland Airport, so it is an ideal starting point for a trip up to Coromandel and the Bay of Plenty. The motel room was large, comfortable and very clean. The motel grounds were well maintained and there was off-street parking available. The motel is located in a quiet...

The motel was adequate but nothing special. The room had ants, a spray was provided for us to use but when this ran out we were not given another one. The main reason we chose this motel was so we could use the heated spa pool as I have a medical condition which gives me constant pain and heated spas...

Thames is more of a stepping off point for the Coromandel Peninsula than a destination in its own right. It's within easy driving distance of Auckland, especially the airport. This motel is at the end of a cul-de-sac so has no passing traffic although I could clearly hear trucks on the nearby highway. My unit was large with a double...

I have to say this place was quite a disappointment. The owner lady was grumpy and defensive and really not nice at all. I didn't dare ask any questions about the town or directions. The rooms are like stepping back into the early 1970's. Clean and tidy, but all the same things, including utensils, stove ( the oven door was...

Thames is a quiet regional seaside town with a reputation for relaxed but active holidays in a slightly remote environment offering fishing, boating, swimming, bush and mountain walks and a wide range of shopping and eating experiences. There are some expensive and high end motels and some more moderate family oriented establishments. The Rolliston is one of these. It provides...

This was a last minute booking made by tired hikers looking for a comfortable night's sleep. Our initial contact with the owner over the phone was very pleasant and easy and we were greeted in a friendly manner on arrival. We were delighted with the self-contained unit, which included a small sheltered patio, and spotless bathroom and kitchen facilities. The...

I am traveling with my son and his fiancé making accommodations harder in order to maintain privacy for the couple. This motel had a family sized room, & a perfect sized kitchen, but the best part was the private courtyard! We had a real breakfast delivered and each day started perfectly ( despite the weather). We highly recommend this place.

Our group stayed in the new, spacious Superior King Units which were just fantastic. Lovely decor, spotlessly clean and extremely well appointed. Really comfortable bed and while it was cool during our visit and we didn't need to use it, each unit has air conditioning available. Very friendly and helpful owners.

I stayed here one night after arriving in Auckland in the afternoon. I'm glad I made the drive to Thames as it was a lovely and quiet waterside town. Rolleston isn't on the water, and probably isn't walking distance to the main shops, but they are close enough. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to...
