OK the interior was dated in our room and there was some noise from the road but not unusual high. BUT we were very pleased with all space, it was perfectly clean, good free wifi, close by parking, friendly and welcoming at checking in with some suggestions of what to see/do in the area.

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.

Shower was newly refurbished and good water temp but shower head designed for hobbits as set very low! Bed too soft for us but then bed firmness is a personal thing. Situated on... More

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
