Great accomodation in Thames if you have a car
This is the best place I’ve found to stay in Thames so far. It’s comfortable and welcoming. Not too far out of town if you have a car. Beds are comfortable. The decor is a little dated. But all in good condition and clean.

Nice location and unique setting
This motel is in a lovely quiet location. The rooms are spaciousness and good quality. The setting is unique also. The room I stayed in had a high A frame ceiling and heating it was hard but there was a good functioning heater so it warmed up. Good to have electric blankets and the bathroom fittings were brand new and high quality.

Coramandel adventure
A very pleasant hotel with very helpful, friendly owners. In a good position near the ocean. Only irritation is early morning road noise

Wonderful Stay
Plesantly supprised, had a beautiful out look from our chalet. The beds were comfortable and the addition of a kitchen a bonus. The front porch great for breakfast and a coffee not to mention enjoying the view. There was slight road noise from traffic but nothing to keep us awake. It was close enough to town but far enough away to enjoy the ambience.
