Cotswold Cottage B & B Thames Coromandel
Terrific hosts and beautiful cottage
“Home away from home” DENISE C - Melbourne, Australia - Stayed September 2014
We stayed at this delightful B & B and thought it was great. Garth and Adrienne make you feel very welcome in their home. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would definitely recommend this wonderful place to any one that wants a wonderful experience in a fantastic part of the North Island. The breakfast was great and Garth was extremely helpful with our travel plans for the next part of our trip. Thames is a great place and is a must for anyone visiting the Coromandel.
Garth and Adrienne were very hospitable with a welcoming full tea and pleasant review of what to do in the area. Lots of great ideas for Coromandel and guided us to some excellent stops that we would have missed without their recommendation. Rooms are cozy, common area has lots to us, and the breakfast was a delicious Kiwi fare.
When I requested to stay at Cotswold Cottage, my request was answered promptly, professionally and very warmly. On arrival, I felt very welcomed and went on to spend a relaxed and refreshing stay. My room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. All the rooms are beautifully set out. All food served is home made and well worth eating. Garth and Adrienne are well acquainted with the area so were able to advise me well on what to do during the day. They went well past what would be expected of hosts in making sure my stay was comfortable and relaxing. Will definitely return and will recommend this place to many.

This could not have been better and at the end of a 4 week visit to NZ it was the perfect finale, in the event we wished we had left another couple of days to explore the Coromandel. Garth and Adrienne did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and were superb hosts; tea and cakes on arrival, nibbles with... More

Everything we needed: a chance to get over a lot of travelling in comfort and peace and warm friendliness. And when I was foolish enough to leave something behind the owners agreed to meet us a long way off to bring it to us. - way beyond the call of duty!

The hosts , Garth and Adrienne , were excellent . Their home is in a quiet location, outside the town, set in lovely surroundings on the top of a hill overlooking the river. Nothing was too much trouble. They were very welcoming and recommended local places of interest to see. Super full breakfast. Arrived as strangers but when we left felt like friends!

Absolutely lovely country house, friendly and helpful host couple who gave plenty of useful tips of what to do in the area. Lovely rooms, great, genuine athmosphere. Excellent way to start our NZ holiday!
There is not really much to do in Thames itself, but the location is a great place to stop and stay for touring Coromandel

"Charming hosts, excellent full breakfast served in a beautifully appointed dining room, classic decor with attention to smallest detail combined to make this a memorable stay. The period home sits high up in the hills overlooking the historical town of Thames. French doors open from each bedroom onto sunny veranda with great views. A cosy conservatory a great place to sit and watch the sun set over the valley. These hosts have "got it right" well above average."

"From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Adrienne and Garth are great hosts, very friendly and take a lot of extra effort to add lots of extra little touches. With Adrienne's attention to detail and her decor flair she has got it so right.
We had the room with the Neatherwood suite, everything was just lovely. Came away from our 2 night stay feeling very relaxed.
Definitely one of the best places we have stayed in NZ. "

"We stayed with Garth and Adrienne, the new hosts for only 1 night and wished we had booked for much longer.
The place really felt like home with a caring heart.. The little touches made it interesting and the absence of little notices that can be too obvious in other B and B's enabled us all the more to relax.
The food was superb .
Although Garth and Adrienne are new to Cotswold Cottage, they are not new to the area and were able to advise us well on what to do and where to go."
Room Tip: All are beautiful . All rooms have an ensuite.. All have views to the river and out to the sea.
