All the little touches that make such a difference - lights above your bed rather than on some other wall for example, nice tidy kitchen, everything in its place, immaculately clean, lovely toiletries and the song of birds and babble of the brook for company. Could have been anywhere in the world! Just lovely !

We loved our stay at Brookby Motel. Full of history, this sleepy motel provided our every need. A secret lane brings you to the village. We liked cooking our own dinner in ample kitchenette. Good beds. Good bathroom. Off street parking. Sky tv.

If I could stay there and see all of New Zealand, I would. The motel is very well appointed with a small electric cook-plate, microwave and fridge. Everything was spotlessly clean. Beds, shower were excellent. Outside was a small balcony to enjoy the evening and listen to the stream where the first gold was discovered in NZ.The cable TV had... More

Currently staying here for 3 nights. The hotel is situated on a creek tucked behind houses. Although small the motel has plenty of outstanding features for the price and we are particularly Impressed by the little unexpected extras such as makeup wipes and the free loan of spades for the hot water beach. It is great sitting outside on the... More

The motel is quite small but it offers excellent accommodation. Our room had a separate bedroom with a queen size bed, a sitting/dining room with a comfortable sofa and flat screen TV, a dining table and a well appointed kitchenette. There was also a small balcony with two chairs at the back. The shower room facilities were excellent. The proprietress... More

We stayed two nights here. The motel has 5 rooms and is situated on a creek not far from the centre of town. There is a walking path to the main road that takes 5 minutes. The service was friendly and the units are clean and well stocked for a short stay. They are immaculate, very clean. Good value for... More

We stayed here for one night after a week long camping trip in the coromandel peninsula. We were in the studio room which was attached to the main house. It was decorated beautifully and very clean and tidy. Good water pressure in the shower, nice large bed and plenty of storage spaces. The small touches just made all the difference... More

Several motel units in this family run business Generally quiet but Thames has a noisy daytime tourist helicopter so some noise anywhere in Thames town. Night is silent Short walk to Thames main street, food and drink Some kitchen facilities in room, also laundry on site Recommend as budget base for Coromandel and surrounds

We were warmly welcomed by Yvonne who gave us local information for our 3 night stay here. We had booked the last available room which was very clean and well equipped. The only slight drawback was that this room was quite small, other rooms were larger and had decks attached but Yvonne gave us the use of a deck near... More
