Wonderful place to stay. We stayed in a one bedroom, nicely refurbished and a very comfortable sleep in a king size bed. Very quite place with only the sounds of birds and the river. Thanks Brookby Hotel we will be back👍

Located a couple of minutes drive from the main street, it's a motel with about half a dozen units of varying configurations. We had #1. All very smart and quite new. Well-equipped. Very good wifi. Friendly welcome by Yvonne, who had put the heater on for us. Fresk milk in fridge. Good beds. Couldn't really want for more. Thoroughly recommended.

Was made to feel very welcome from the moment I enquired if there was a unit available. My daughter had surgery in Thames Hospital. It was originally planned for the morning but did not happen until late afternoon so I needed somewhere to stay overnight. This motel is VERY close to the hospital and is in a peaceful, quiet location.... More

Amazing place, location and service! They have a lot of detail that make the difference. Free wi fi, very quiet rooms, parking. I also arrive before the checking time and they gave me the room. I really recommend this place for stay 1 or 2 nights.

I was a bit nervous about booking here but read the reviews which helped make the decision. The building is older style but the accommodation is well maintained and all that could be asked for. It was obvious from the many extra touches that this is not just run as a business. After spending 3 weeks in NZ this place... More

We were so happy that we had chosen The Brookby Motel for 2 of our nights in the Coromandel Peninsula. The rooms were delightful and we (2 couples) did not want for anything during our stay. Co-owner, Yvonne, has assembled a fascinating compendium in each room with so much interesting area history you would need a whole night to read... More

The owner here has put a lot of thought and effort into ensuring that travellers' needs are catered for. Spacious accommodation with all facilities and more provided. Thames itself is uninteresting, but our stay at Brookby Motel cannot be fauled.
