Absolutely loved our stay at Grafton Cottage, we stayed in the Rata room which had a beautiful view, the photo doesn’t do it justice. It was a nice room with baking and liqueur on arrival which was a nice touch. The whole place had an island feel to it with designs and trees and plants everywhere. It was so beautiful and has character. The spa pool was great and had a beautiful view at night, a bit too chilly to try the pool. Alby, the owner showed us round and made us feel very welcome Thanks for the wonderful stay! Would definitely recommend

We recently stayed two nights at this property. It sits on a hill overlooking the Girth of Thames. It was the highlight of our North Island trip. The owners were so nice. They even gave us a small bottle of liquor when we arrived. They also recommended a Coromandel coast drive I had picked out and let us borrow a shovel to use for our visit to Hot Water Beach. Our room was clean, modern and well appointed with a nice deck with a gorgeous view. The sunsets were stunning. The room also had a fridge and kitchenette that allowed us to eat breakfasts and one dinner in the room. I highly recommend this property.

We stopped at Grafton Cottage and Chalets for the first night as part of a week’s holiday in Coromandel. The chalets are well fitted out with lovely sea and country views. Rachel was a very welcoming host. We would definitely stay here again when next visiting Thames.
