We stayed at the Avalon Motel for two nights at the end of our New Zealand trip. Spacious room, friendly staff. A pleasant walk into Thames. A large garden to sit in. Could not fault the motel, a very good choice at the end of our holiday

We stayed overnight in Avalon Motel at the start of our Coromandel trip. We originally planned to stay in a backpackers in Thames, but changed our mind when we saw the rate of Avalon Motel for our family of four was only a bit more expensive. We knew we made the right decision as soon as we entered the room.... More

No electric blankets on 3 of the 4 beds in a cold unit going into winter which was a big disappointment. POSITIVES Very friendly helpful hosts Price - good value... More

on plus side, reasonably clean, check in service was good on negative, no privacy curtain on bathroom window, no privacy curtain on glass window in door, fix bathroom window with towel, and door closes with loud bang, this door needs rubberfoam weather striping to make for more silent closing.

We stopped for just one night in Thames, and this motel was nice, clean, roomy, and had a really nice and helpful owner. Sure the decor is a bit dated, but it's clean, and well taken care of, and the bed was really comfy! We'd have been perfectly happy staying longer.

I am writing this review while still staying at this awful motel, due to the fact I can't sleep because I can hear our neighbour running water through the bunker like concrete brick walls. No matter the anti-sleep rattling of the bar fridge will kick into life again any moment. I have travelled throughout the world and have to say... More

While this motel was a bit tired it was very clean indeed. Great space to relax without having to sit on the bed. We were provided secure storage for our bikes. The owners were very accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. We left our car for 2 nights while we cycled the Hauraki Rail Trail - this presented no... More
