Lovely sunny room with good facilities. Lovely hosts and great breakfast. Gardens and view were beautiful. Would like to have stayed longer to enjoy the outdoor areas. Close to town, good recommendations for dinner. Highly recommended.

Returning to NZ to visit old friends dotted around Auckland and Tauranga we enjoyed two nights at this lovely B&B on the edge of Thames. Beautiful views, lovely rooms, and amazing breakfasts. Garth is a mine of information about the area and we kept busy following his suggestions. The scenery on the Pen was even more spectacular than we remembered. Remember to allow plenty of time for driving the winding narrow roads: it ain't 110km/h on cruise control like Australia!

We stayed one night but we had ample possibilities to see how this is a great place. The room itself is big and very well decorated, plus, it’s literally filled with useful things such as extra towels, soaps, coffee&tea and the like. The location is outstanding with a magnificent garden and plenty of seating spaces to either enjoy other guests company or quite privacy. The breakfast was good and on top of a typical buffet Gareth cooked for us pancakes and bacon (but he actually gave us several choices to pick from). Moreover, they are very helpful and careful to give useful tips to travellers with their upcoming days, which is very useful given that they are very knowledgable on that.

In conclusion, a very nice and positive experience which I thoroughly recommend!!!!

    Liked  · Fantastic B&B! Great hosts and great facilities which were extremely clean and homely. Location is perfect if doing trails in the ranges, including the Pinnacles. The hosts also put in a little extra effort with subtle touches that make it a great place to stay. Spa was perfect after a day of hiking. The Breakfast spread exceeded our expectations.

Our wonderful stay started with a friendly greeting by the hosts, complimentary afternoon tea (with fresh scones) followed by a very lazy afternoon at the property enjoying the beautiful views from our room. We so appreciated all the details - big and small: Heaters and electric blankets, a super comfy bed + quality bedding, blackout curtains, wonderful robes, a big selection of teas and coffee...the list goes on. I need to mention how incredibly clean everything was and how delicious our breakfast the next morning! Excellent stay with wonderful hosts!

A very comfortable bed-and-breakfast in a beautiful location on the outskirts of one of New Zealand's oldest towns. The host had an excellent suggestion for dinner (Grahamstown Bar & Diner) and some good ideas for our drive around the Coromandel peninsula, and he produced a delicious breakfast.


Exquisite hospitality, great accommodation

Aldo,  Washington, February 2017
We booked this property in Thames on our way to visit the Coromandel peninsula. Our stay was great, as the room was comfortable, with many extra touches that added pleasure to the stay. In the morning we were surprised even more, as the breakfast offered was a gourmet meal that included mostly home-made items. The quality and presentation was at par with fancy Parisian restaurants and cafe's.
We recommend this property without any hesitation.


The hosts were very attentive and pleasant. We did have a very pleasant stay.

Our stay here was awesome! They were very accommodating to us coming in late. They were friendly and helpful, giving us recommendations of where to eat in town and even letting us borrow their spade for Hot Water Beach. The room was very nice, and most importantly clean. Also, breakfast was delicious :-) We loved our stay here and we would definitely recommend this!

Garth and Adrienne made us feel so welcome it was like a home from home. Our room, Neatherwood Suite, was better than many of the top class hotels we stayed in during our recent tour of New Zealand. It had the added advantage of the personal touch brought by our charming hosts.
Breakfasts were a delight and the help and advice on local amenities was excellent. They even gave us a spade and towels for our visit to Hot Water Beach!
We cannot praise this wonderful sanctuary highly enough. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.


The best accommodation I had ever stayed at.
It is such a beautiful house/cottage. The view was breathtaking. The owners, Adrienne and Garth are lovely. They were happy to recommend us where to eat, where to go and which roads to take. The cottage has patio where you can sit outside, also chairs on the grasses to enjoy the view. The room was feeling homely, very clean and yet very elegant. They have a spa behind the cottage. They also lend us towels to go to the beach and the spa. Very impressed with the service and the place.
Everything. The view, the garden, the spa, the room, the patio, the cats, communal fridge. Adrienne's and Garth's hospitality.
I guess the only thing I would love is a menu card so we know what breakfast we can order and as a late riser, for the breakfast time not to be so ear
There is a river across the cottage and someone said you can borrow the canoes from Garth and Adrienne although we did not do that.

The BEST B&B We Stayed In The Whole Trip
My husband and I stayed in 7 different B&Bs throughout our trip in NZ and this was hands down the best, for a few very specific reasons:

- Professionalism: There are a lot of B&Bs in New Zealand where you literally just feel like you're crashing in someone's house, making things awkward. Cotswold, on the other hand, has:
- Clear signage and directions
- A designated reception area
- A beautiful guest lounge
- Separate rooms with completely independent entrances. No feeling like you have to sneak around to go out to your car at night, no feeling like you don't know the boundaries between your space and the owners'.

- Cleanliness: Again, B&Bs can feel iffy, but this place is immaculate, from the towels to the bedding, to the grounds.

- Payment: They take credit cards AND give receipts.

- Helpfulness: The owners are so fantastic. They immediately offer to help you find things in the area and they give real recommendations. For instance, I can't tell you how many times I've asked a B&B owner for a restaurant recommendation nearby and they just say "everything's good," but here they're real people with real recommendations and opinions, if you want them. As a bonus, they're fantastic chefs and prepared one of the most delicious breakfasts we've had on the whole trip in the morning.

Everyone should stay here and other B&B owners should seriously take notes.

Peaceful Retreat
Cotswold Cottage is the perfect setting for a weekend getaway. We stayed two nights and were very happy with the service. The views are stunning and though it's located close to town it felt a world away. I loved the huge bed and the spa bath in the bathroom is the best I've ever used. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts were very helpful and friendly. We'll be back.

Perfect getaway spot
Clean, spacious and elegant room with a beautiful view overlooking the river and beyond. Our host was both courteous and friendly and offered information on local attractions that we may be interested in visiting.
We had a most delicious three course meal on our first evening, cooked by our host. It was quiet and romantic - something we hadn't enjoyed in years!
We would recommend Cotswold Cottage as an ideal destination to anyone visiting the Thames area.

Lovely place for a night away
This historical home is located in a picturesque natural setting on a bend of the Kauraeranga River. The rooms are small, yet with stylish decor and serviced with a high level of cleanliness. Garth and Adrienne are friendly and professional hosts. Breakfast is served in the villa dining room and is superbly presented. This cottage is a lovely spot from which to explore Thames, and from which to enjoy the slower pace of life offered by this region.

The local is slightly elevated and has a nice view. The garden invites you to relax. The room was clean and we liked it very much. The friendly, helpful hosts presented a plentiful and delicious breakfast. Further, they supported us for the daily tour planning. It was a pitty that we planned our stay for 2 days only.

The owners were delightful. Their attention to detail was refreshing. These folks take pride in what they do and do it well. Breakfast was above and beyond. Delicious, nutritious food.

Excellent hospitality, beautiful surroundings, comfortable and very clean.
The hostpitality was excellent and we were treated like family. The rooms were very comfortable, well equipped and extremely clean. We travelled a lot in 2016 and this was by far the best experience we had in a hotel. The decor was homely, yet the level of comfort was what you would expect from a five star hotel. I would recommend this to anyone who would like a true kiwi experience and who is looking to wind down away from the main touristy areas.

Nicest couple hosting the nicest B&B in all of NZ
The hosts, Adrienne and Garth, were SO nice and friendly and helpful. Seriously, nicer than most of our family. They gave us directions and suggestions and were so accommodating. They gave us beach towels and shovel to use at the beach, a coupon for a local restaurant, great directions and really were experts on everything on Coromandel Peninsula. You would be crazy to stay anywhere else, in my opinion!
