This is the perfect place to stay and relax. The hospitality was excellent, breakfast was wonderful and the rooms were perfect. This was exactly what we needed to relax after a big trip around NZ. The attention to detail was second to known.

This was our third stop for two nights, part of an extended 6 1/2 week holiday to New Zealand. It is a beautiful house, so much character with superb views in every direction. Both rooms we had were very well equipped and the breakfasts were first class, Lucy & Martyn are still talking about the pancakes ! Garth and Adrienne...

Cotswold Cottage is a neat little place with fantastic hosts. Beautiful setting near the small river. Overlooking fields, racecourse and surrounding mountains. Bed was comfortable and really nice room and bathroom. Home cooked hot breakfast in the morning was an awesome treat. There are three rooms in total and it was nice chatting to other travellers and sharing stories. Short...

Set on a rise with the town of Thames in the distance, the views from the bedrooms off Cotswold Cottage are as good as advertised. Add to this the warm welcome from the proprietors, comfortable and clean facilities and good breakfast fare, and you will wish you could stay longer.

We stayed o n l y one night, but it is definately worth staying longer. The room was very cosy and comfortable with a beautiful view in the garden and the breakfast was just great! The hosts took plenty of time for us even they were in Steampunk-Festival mood. We were lucky to share the experiences of this Festival with...

A lovely setting, splendid bedroom with excellent facilities, great breakfast and informative and friendly hosts - what more could you want from such accomodation - nothing really ! Perhaps the only downside for CC is that Thames is , to put it politely, not the most exciting town in the Southern Hemisphere and decent restaurants are few and far between...

Thank you! Well, this place used to be a restaurant....We do agree that Thames is sadly lacking in good evening cafes, but hoping that will change. We do cook evening meals ourselves on request, so next time you come, book one in! It was great having you to stay, and always good to send people off with a smile :)

Our stay at Cotswold Cottage was wonderful. We stayed in the Holker room, which had amazing views of the beautifully maintained gardens and the river/valley below. Garth and Adrian are fantastic hosts. Very helpful and friendly, and they make a delicious breakfast. Exceeded all expectations, would certainly like to stay there again.

Good centre for driving the Coromandel area. Comfortable stay with friendly and informative hosts well able to suggest local places of interest. Good choice of tasty breakfast with eggs cooked to personal preference to perfection and good local eateries for evening meal. Would stay again if in returning to the area. Unfortunately we stayed for 2 nights only during tour...

Great stay even with the Tsunami warning. The host and hostess were great and offered good directions for the Coromandel Peninsula drive. Good breakfast and comfortable beds and shower. Would stay there again.

Thanks so much for the positive comments. Yes, the tsunami alert was a bit of a shock in the early hours, but we were the lucky ones! Hope the rest of your trip was fabulous.
