Basic continental breakfast...wish we could...

Excellent location with great views from our deck. Lovely garden spaces surrounding the cabin. Amazingly quiet and peaceful....and so dark! Wonderful hosts who gave us lots of help with places to go. Brought breakfast to us in the morning.

We arrived to a warm welcome including milk, biscuits and a delious local bailey's type drink for later on. The Rata room although small was everything we needed and the bed was huge. TV reception was poor due to stormy weathere. The breakfast choices were numerous and came nicely set out on tray, and we ate outside. Nice views and...

Thames is a great base for the Coromandel and Grafton chalets are a top spot to stay. Situated on a hill overlooking the town and the Firth of Thames, the views are stunning, especially at sunset. Comfy beds, friendly hosts, refurbished great shower. A tiny improvement would be to have another comfy chair for three people staying to fully enjoy...

This place is just nothing short of amazing. It is a B&B with no less than 6 units. Each unit has a hilltop view of the Firth of Thames and Thames village. A very friendly greeting was quickly followed by a tour of the place. There is an outdoor hot tub, a cold pool, and then the panoramic rooms with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lonely Planets pick for Thames. Nestled high in the hills above Thames, Grafton Cottage and Chalets is in a excluded, peaceful tree-lined setting far from any traffic noise. At the end of each day exploring the Coromandel, relax in the spa, or simply laze by the pool overlooking the sea. BBQ your dinner while watching the sun set over the sea or sample the local restaurants. We offer self contained chalet accommodation in individually designed studio, 1 and 2 bedroom cedar chalets. A delicious full continental breakfast (Grafton Cottage style), on site staff and daily housekeeping is included in the room rate. ... more   less
