We had a great three days here. A clean, well-appointed room, welcoming hosts Gail and Deb. Included breakfast was a pleasant surprise, served on balcony with stunning views.Free Wifi was a requirement of our booking but slightly disappointed that the signal did not reach our room. Walking to reception to get good signal was only a minor drawback.

I suspect the issue is that if you advertise yourself as a B&B there is an expectation that breakfast will be served. The notes in the room say that breakfast is included UNLESS advised during booking. Guess what? No breakfast. Nor we were advised during check in that we wouldn't get breakfast. Avoid.

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at the Why Worry. the welcome from Deb was warm and friendly, and the room was beautifully decorated with a fabulous view. Our hosts, Deb and Gail, could not have been more helpful. I would recommend the Why Worry to my friends and family, and would not hesitate to return.

Situated on a hilltop with superb views over Coromandel Harbour to the mountains running up the peninsula we realised we had found a gem of a stay as we arrived. Our expectations were confirmed when we received a wonderfully warm welcome and then shown to a tastefully decorated, comfortable, immaculate room. Our hosts provided an excellent continental breakfast which we... More

This accommodation just a short drive from the main Street of Coromandel has a beautiful setting with views over the harbour and a balcony to eat breakfast from. Studio 2 is well equipped and has the best views. Although the owners were not there to greet us, Hazel one of the owner's mother did an excellent job and the bottle... More

A lovely way to see the view above coromandel town. Lovely accommodation and wonderful hosts. Beautiful view to wake up to. It is a wee bit of a drive from town centre but well worth the effort. A short walk down the hill to the beach.

Having read the previous reviews on this site just before we left for our trip, I was expecting a lovely experience. Unfortunately it was not the case, and I deliberated long and hard about posting this, but we DID have a choice of accommodation and unfortunately this did not meet our expectations. At late notice, (the day before) we requested... More

We just had two nights at Why Worry in a motel style unit... we were very warmly welcomed by Deb and Gail, they could not do enough for us to make our stay more pleasant. We enjoyed our unit, which was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We would not hesitate to recommend Why Worry to family and friends.

Why worry is clean and has great views. However on arriving was told the spa not working, I had chosen this b and b as it had a spa. The kitchen sink was to small to wash the dinner plates in. The outside chair was broken. Friendly hosts but poor amenities
