We stayed for the nights and really enjoyed our time there. Was very relaxing and friendly. Deb and Gail were great hosts and always there to help.... even gave me a lift into town. Would definitely go back again.

We booked here knowing it was the other side of the peninsula from whitianga where hot water beach and cathedral cove is, so we knew it'd be a drive to most places.

It was a drive along the coastal road which felt like it'd never end and then is about ten mins drive out of the coromandel town centre. It's probably a twenty minute walk from the town (not 5 mins as advertised). It is also up a steep hill. We didn't mind this at all as had no plans to walk but worth knowing.

We got greeted on arrival (fairly late but we rang in advance and let them know it'd be late evening). A really warm welcome and showed to our room. The room was really welcoming and comfortable, just what we needed for the end of our north island tour! Had everything we needed, comfortable bed, clean towels, lovely shower etc. We didn't order breakfast at all, but there was a fridge and kettle so we sorted little snacks out for ourselves.

Morning came and we were blown away by the views from the honeymoon suite. Had a balcony and a BBQ and so utilised that one eve. Amazing views!! We also made use of the jacuzzi spa overlooking the views one eve too. This place really is all about location and serenity!

Some negative comments on here have been about the wifi- it's true- it's not the best so we gave up and used our data instead. This could be sorted out.

We also thought one thing that could have been better was on the 2nd day we had our room tea/coffee/sugar topped up but bed wasn't made (although I'd made it up a bit myself!) and our towels weren't changed. The welcome book said every 2nd day the room was serviced so we would have liked fresh towels and the bed done nicely.

I would really recommend staying here if you want amazing views, secluded comfort and a chilled stay. Just be prepared for being slightly out of town and having rubbish wifi, and having quite a crazy road drive to hot water beach/cathedral cove etc. Fun roads, but quite tiring, either winding over the mountains or through them!

We opted last minute to stay overnight in Coromandel and stumbled upon this place due to a signpost in the road. We drove up to the top of the hill and were delighted to find this B&B with breathtaking views of the water. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and had all the amenities we needed - tea, coffee, hot chocolate, a fridge, kettle and toaster. The private deck with BBQ overlooking the water was just perfect. Even the robes in the bathroom were a really nice touch. The shower was hot and great water pressure. The room was quiet and peaceful. We were charmed by Gail upon our arrival and she made our stay easy and convenient. We will definitely be back and would recommend it to others!

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 was still alright. wifi totally lost... very weak & then later not responding at all...
