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...

Adrienne and Garth are wonderful hosts. They offer great local touring advice and provide an amazing hot breakfast. Their immaculate home's elevated location overlooking the countryside is delightful. An outstanding accommodation.

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...

Our stay here was awesome! They were very accommodating to us coming in late. They were friendly and helpful, giving us recommendations of where to eat in town and even letting us borrow their spade for Hot Water Beach. The room was very nice, and most importantly clean. Also, breakfast was delicious :-) We loved our stay here and we...

Garth and Adrienne were perfect hosts during our stay. The place was wonderful and the garden very inviting for a relaxing stay. The attention to detail is unmatched. Breakfast was tasteful and cooked to our own choice. Garth even went the extra mile and drove us to town for dinner!

This is the perfect place to stay and relax. The hospitality was excellent, breakfast was wonderful and the rooms were perfect. This was exactly what we needed to relax after a big trip around NZ. The attention to detail was second to known.
