We stayed one night here prior to our return flight from Auckland. We were very pleased with this decision as it gave us another night outside the city, but it takes no more than one and a half hours to the airport. This B&B is on the outskirts of Thames in a very attractive setting. As our stay was only... More

We had a wonderful stay. Friendly and helpful hosts - they stayed up till after midnight on the first night as our flight from Australia was delayed. Delicious breakfasts - would highly recommend the pancakes. Nice little touches like chocolates and bathrobes. Room beautifully presented and very comfortable. Nice and warm despite it being a cold wintry weekend. Quiet location... More

A lovely warm welcome awaits from owners, Garth and Adrienne who couldn't do enough to make sure we were comfortable and provided us with lots of very good local information. The wonderful breakfast served in the elegant dining room overlooking views of Thames made it very easy to linger and take time chatting to other guests as well as owners.... More

Cotswold was a lovely place to stay - well equipped unit with a country view and very close to Thames. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful in terms of places to go, good local eating, etc. The bed and linen were wonderful. An excellent breakfast.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this bed-and-breakfast. The room was clean, welcoming, and charming. The owners were extremely accommodating and hospitable, making us feel like old friends rather than just guests. They were very helpful, giving us detailed directions for sight-seeing and honest recommendations for places to eat. Breakfast was really nice as well.

Visiting from the USA we stayed at this wonderful B&B. Our hosts Adrienne and Garth could not have been more warm, welcoming and accommodating. Our room was beautifully appointed with extras we didn't expect such as plush bathrobes, makeup towelettes and washcloth along with the usual tea and coffee etc. Garth was a wealth of information on places to see...

We stayed at the cottage for a couple of nights and enjoyed the company of Adrienne and Garth a lot. They were very lovely, helpful and caring hosts. The breakfast was brilliant and the rooms including little details such as heated mattresses and a nice bath tub were great. Highly recommended.

An easy drive from Aukland for us to start our holiday, Cotswold Cottage is just beautiful and such a comfortable place to stay, the town just five minutes away. Adrienne and Garth were the perfect hosts with masses of ideas And information about the area. Delightful!!

After a long drive from Paihia we were grateful for Adrienne's hospitality and delicious afternoon tea. Our tastefully decorated room (Holker Room) overlooked the race course at the foot of surrounding hills. After a lovely breakfast in a beautifully restored home, Garth suggested an itinerary for our day ahead. This included directions to Cathedral Cove, Coromandel and Rapaura Water Gardens.... More
