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.

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

I booked the bed and breakfast suite as a treat for my 73 year old mother who was getting married at the Ngatea Water gardens. Adrienne was so helpful when I phoned to arrange the details. She recommended local companies to help with hair, make-up, beauty treatments, wedding cake, etc. It was such a relief to have her expert local... More

We had decided to spend the last 3days of our six week holiday on the Coromandel Peninsula. Thames seemed the ideal location and Cotswold Cottage was a super base for us. The room was excellent and the house had stunning views. Gareth and Adrienne were great hosts and recommended two great days out touring the area. The only downside was... More

We were lucky to come across this B & B by pure chance. Impressive from start to finish! Gareth & Adrienne were excellent hosts with tea & freshly baked scones, excellent advice on sight seeing as well as ideas for dining out. The rooms were very well presented with lovely bedding, towels and toiletries with the added pleasure of a... More

We arrived late and called to say we would be late and this did not present a problem in any way. We spent a very relaxing night at Cotswold Cottage and were very pleasantly surprised on our arrival with all the little extras to make your stay comfortable. Chocolate bars on the very well stocked tea trays, a guest lounge... More
