This was the first stop on our NZ trip and a very good choice not much more than an hour's drive from Auckland airport but a real gateway to the Coromandel peninsula. Welcomed with tea and homemade cake and biscuits, we were carefully guided for our outings over the following days. The Willow room was comfortable and peaceful allowing for... More

We had a lovely two-night stay with Gary and Wendy while on an extended trip of NZ. After many nights away from home, this was one of the most relaxing of our trip. Room was quiet, looking onto the swimming pool, with bougainvillea framing the porch, birds singing -- very pleasant. The welcoming tea with homemade biscuits and scones were... More

We had a lovely two night stay with Gary looking after us. The room we booked was more of an apartment with its own kitchen and living room. Gary really couldn't have been more accommodating, helping us organise trips and our next B&B etc

Our short stay in november 2012 was just amazing - Wendy and Gary are one of the best hosts within our whole trip. We were allowed to feed their lambs after breakfast - they're the cutest pets ;-) We had a very good time, tasty breakfast and thanks to the tipps of Wendy and Gary a very lovely day-trip through...

We stayed only one night, in transit, but Wendy and Gary made us most welcome. We were in the Willow room - its own door, very well furnished and very comfortable. Wendy helped us find a local swimming beach, their own pool not being quite ready for the season, and we had a fine dinner and chat over wine and... More

Thorold Country House is a great find. Just over an hour from Auckland international airport positioned in the Coromandel area of Thames, making it a great location for exploring the Coromandel peninsular. Wendy and Gary have created a wonderful haven of tranquility and warmth. The accommodation we stayed in is a separate cottage from the main house with two bedrooms... More

I stayed in Thorold Country House for two nights, and I loved it. I showed up early but was well received and welcomed. The place was quiet, green with well manicured lawn, and cottage I stayed in was very specious, clean with lots of windows and very nicely kept (and there is a pool as well!). Best of all, the...
