We drove past late on a Friday night and we decided to stay a night on the way up to Corromandel Town. Amazingly friendly owners and staff. The cat was friendly too. :-) A lovely unit, with a nice view, quiet peaceful setting. We'd stay again.

Top marks for this motel. Owners could not be more helpful when our booked accommodation was not up to scratch. Facilities in the chalet accommodation were superb quality and the general decor and cleanliness of the highest standards. Recommend the upstairs chalets as most have a view of the bay.

A great place to spend some time on your way or longer. Very clean and cozy rooms. Especially the ones upstairs. We had the first lodge with big window for a perfect view of sunsets. Extremely welcomming staff, helpfull tips for exploring the neighbourhoods. Fully recommend.

Had upstairs accommodation in this immaculately clean lodge. Excellent service, gorgeous outlook, tastefully decorated. Will stay again and have recommended to friends. While in Thames, check out Melbourne cafe and the little Melbourne-like laneway behind.

The water front location was nice but the cabin needs a renovation. There was no hot water mixer tap in the bathroom sink & the single bed was quite hard for a comfortable sleep. Expected better rooms for the price paid.

Picked on spec, this was a find! Warmly welcomed, given the opportunity to look at a couple of units to select the one we preferred, and then being able to gaze out from our deck across the Firth of Thames. Comfortable bed, good facilities, although the bathrooms are in need of an upgrade. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely chalets, especially the top level units near the water. Very airy and bright, well decorated, fully equipped kitchen, very clean and well maintained property. Very friendly and helpful manager. Comfortable bed and good quality linens and towels. Showers are designed for shorter people and everyone must take turns for the water cylinder to reheat, but the only negative we... More

Spent two nights here, and could not fault the chalet or service. Comfy bed, lovely view, free wifi, all clean and quiet. Upstairs is up stairs, but worth the effort! Hosts gave great options for dining and outings.

We three adults recently stayed at this most picturesque motel. The Chalet was lovely and clean and the beds comfortable. Access was easy, no steps. Hosts pleasant. But sadly this Chalet only offers 4 minute showers through a very small water cylinder which goes very cold very suddenly. Only one of us could manage a 3 minute shower being in... More

We rolled in late and tired and we could not have had a more friendly welcome. They even bumped our family up to a larger cottage. Room was very nice and clean and the cooking facilities were very well stocked. The great views, welcoming staff, Wifi and warm rooms were a great find.
