We stayed here as the beginning of biking the Hauraki Rail Trail. Everything was very good. We arrived early but the room was ready for us anyway. Everything you would want in a functional reasonably priced motel including wi-fi access etc.

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

Had a wonderful stay at the Avalon Motel in Thames. The owners are incredible friendly & helpful and it's a great place to stay for people with children. My two children had a great time feeding the chickens! The rooms are large, spacious and the beds are wonderful! Yes the rooms are a little dated, but nothing that made our... 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.
