Sallie & David have a lovely place in Whangamata on the Coromandel Peninsula, recommended to us by Trailfinders, who helped plan the holiday. Definitely the best breakfast of anywhere we stayed, although it wasn't yet holiday season, so it was just the three of us staying, so a breakfast cooked to order rather than the buffet breakfasts we had to put up with in other places.
Unfortunately, as it wasn't holiday season, a number of places in town were closed, so when we went in for an evening meal, the number of choices were limited, but this wasn't something under the control of the owners.
It is an expensive place, nice of an occasional night or two, but not somewhere you could stay for too long unless you have a lot of money. But you get what you pay for, and sometimes you need to pay for exceptional quality and service.
