We stayed here recently for a work trip. We were greeted by the managers who were both very friendly and chatty. They sorted is out with wifi, milk and showed us to our rooms. They made sure we knew where everything was and how it worked. The rooms were nice and comfortable and had a spa bath, heating, and a... More

Triangle Spa Bath an absolute delight in the winter time, room was a little more expensive (off season prices), but well worth it. Venue is very accessible to Thames main street with an appealing front patio area that was enjoyed even in the colder weather. A quiet facilities, not really suitable for younger children. Room was clean and faultless. I... More

Staff extremely friendly and helpful. The only one thing I could say is you get a little bit of road noise but other then that perfect. Not a super... More

We stayed here for one night, the Motel was clean & the owners lovely. Our room had king size bed, small kitchen with everything you would need, extra pillows, blankets, iron & ironing board. The shower was great with good water pressure. This motel can be a bit noisy first thing in the morning with the traffic. You can also... More

Pleasant, large room. Comfortable bed, but for the tourist there was absolutely no information about Thames provided in the room - no ideas about where to eat, sight see or upcoming events, which I thought strange. I think this motel is aimed at the overnight business traveler. WARNING: bring earplugs! The traffic noise from outside is horrendous!

Shortcourt, Owner at Shortland Court Motel, responded to this review

We always had information for tourists that included both the town and the Coromandel area. However these day the guests seem to think that everything in the room is there for them to take. Because of this we have moved all information into the office. More

Clean room with a comfortable bed and a decent bathroom. Situated on a very busy road, opposite a cement works (which was closed, fortunately, on the weekend), so we found the traffic noise a bit disturbing. However, it was reasonably close to the main street of Thames, where there is a good choice of dining options, and is perfectly adequate... More

We booked This motel via the iSite, as we could not find anything via the web, as everything else was booked. The cost for one night was $180.00. The bed was terrible, no AC, but was clean . In the morning, there were a lot of tiny little bugs on the counter. I killed them, and put some on a... More

The insects were midges and if you leave windows open and lights on they will always come in. Most people are happy with our beds . They are good sleepyhead beds less than 5 years old. Unfortunately we are unable to provide beds that are exactly like the one people are used to sleeping on. Should people want a budget... More

Good spot for one night,fairly quie even though it is on the main road. The bed mattress was a bit worn. Host was very nice, and put us in a nice room.You can purchase breakfast, but it is pricey. Nice small kitchenette.
