The motel is dated and in need of refurbishment. Bed has seen firmer days. Noisy as close to main road especially from about 4am. Was clean and well equipped. Microwave and two hot plates were efficient. Free Wifi was good

I was stopping the night in Thames before heading up to Hahei. I lived in the queen studio, found it quite spacious, and well maintained. Queen sized bed provided with a couch, all relatively clean. Unlimited wi-fi provided which was quite quick. It was quite quiet throughout the night, however the sound of traffic became a little louder in the...

It is adequately furnished, well maintained and of good size. We have a two-room unit with a well stocked kitchen - though the table top hot plates are just too slow. Otherwise, things are working fine and we had a reasonably comfortable stay there.

Its relatively quiet and we had a really comfortable stay and will return there next time. The thing that stood out was the service from the owners who are lovely people. We had a problem while there which once...

We'd booked 6 rooms and stayed here with 19 people. Rooms are clean and spacious. Kitches are equiped with everything you need. Free, fast internet and a big size flat screen in each room. Owners are very nice and easy going. They put a BBQ for us to use in the court yard and with a couple of pick-nic tables...

This was our first stop in New Zealand and we had many treks in the area planned. Was a great location for jumping off for hikes and adventures. The nights were cool enough but we did use the fan provided. Kitchenette was well equipped for us to make quick dinners. I would say that the price was pretty reasonable given...

Value for money with free wifi, kitchenette and helpful, friendly staff. Clean and spacious unit we would have been happy to stay another night. A good stop-over on the way to other places. On main road into town.

We had just driven the look around the Coromandel pennisula and needed a place to stay for the night. It was spacious, clean and we all slept well. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. The kitchenette has a small fridge/feezer, a cooking plate, microwave, pots/pans, dishes, utensils, etc. There is a picnic table just outdoors and a grill that...
