The motel was right up the hill, but we were still slightly disappointed with the view (was expecting alittle more...). We were on the ground floor and there was an option to bbq but we did not use it. Overall the room was comfy. The motel was quite a distance away from the main town but we drove so it... More

The best thing about Why Worry Motel was the view. Absolutely beautiful - but the view alone does not solicit paying $190 per night for a family suite. We were skeptical of Why Worry Motel as soon as we arrived in Coromandel. Advertised as “conveniently located”, it is a decent drive out of town and up a very steep hill.... More

This was a while back, but my partner thought it was a brilliant idea to surprise me with a little get away trip from the busy Auckland City to this gem retreat. We were greeted by the owners and shown to our rooms with all information given and if we needed any help, we could go to them anytime. The... More

When we arrived, the host did not seem to know we were coming and asked us if we had a booking. The grounds are nice and the room lovely. We enjoyed the lovely jacuzzi and the room was big and immaculately clean. We too expected a Bed and Breakfast would have a breakfast, at least a continental one. Deb did... More

We had a great three days here. A clean, well-appointed room, welcoming hosts Gail and Deb. Included breakfast was a pleasant surprise, served on balcony with stunning views.Free Wifi was a requirement of our booking but slightly disappointed that the signal did not reach our room. Walking to reception to get good signal was only a minor drawback.

I suspect the issue is that if you advertise yourself as a B&B there is an expectation that breakfast will be served. The notes in the room say that breakfast is included UNLESS advised during booking. Guess what? No breakfast. Nor we were advised during check in that we wouldn't get breakfast. Avoid.

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at the Why Worry. the welcome from Deb was warm and friendly, and the room was beautifully decorated with a fabulous view. Our hosts, Deb and Gail, could not have been more helpful. I would recommend the Why Worry to my friends and family, and would not hesitate to return.

Situated on a hilltop with superb views over Coromandel Harbour to the mountains running up the peninsula we realised we had found a gem of a stay as we arrived. Our expectations were confirmed when we received a wonderfully warm welcome and then shown to a tastefully decorated, comfortable, immaculate room. Our hosts provided an excellent continental breakfast which we... More

This accommodation just a short drive from the main Street of Coromandel has a beautiful setting with views over the harbour and a balcony to eat breakfast from.

A lovely way to see the view above coromandel town. Lovely accommodation and wonderful hosts. Beautiful view to wake up to. It is a wee bit of a drive from town centre but well worth the effort. A short walk down the hill to the beach.
