    We were made to feel very welcome and hosts Albe and Rachel made sure that we had everything that we needed for our four night stay. Even though we had self catering facilities our breakfasts were provided and brought to us during the evening for the following day. We awoke to the sound of birdsong and had total relaxation during our visit. Beautiful views over the firth of Thames and superb sunsets ! We would certainly recommend Grafton Cottages to anyone visiting the Coromandel.

    We loved the view from our chalet, siting outside on the deck in the evening was a pleasure. Continental breakfast delivered to our room.We wish the new owners well.

  • Family with children

    Very very very beautiful, up up up in the hills but so close to Thames the town. The cottages were really really cool.

    Arrive early, have dinner by about 6pm cause all shops close at 5pm and super market closes at 8pm

    Perched high up on the hillside we had a very comfortable and well equipped cottage with fabulous views over the river mouth and sea. The staff were very friendly and provided and excellent a copious continental breakfast each day.

  • Single

    It's location provided great views and not too far from the township. I also liked the continental breakfast that was provided with the little extras. It was a little gem that I really liked.

    Nothing to make a comment about this part.

    Lovely unit and location with friendly staff. Especially appreciated the local cream liqueur - went to the winery immediately afterwards and got ourselves some of their produce.

  • Older travelers

    We loved the View from the deck area, beautiful looking out to the Thames Firth. The location of these cottages and chalets is just amazing and private. We definitely plan on going back and taking our family with us.

  • Older travelers

    People very friendly, view brilliant, breakfast good and price of stay ok.

    Room a little small, no outside seating area with the view, access could be difficult for some

  • Older travelers

    Great views over Thames and out to sea, good frendly service, quiet and relaxing, Made to feel very welcome.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We liked the design and the staff very much. They were very friendly and helpful. The complementary breakfast was as good as a cont. b'fast can be.Generous helpings of everything. They even gave us a small bottle of Baily's liquor. We would stay there again.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Pleasant and comforatble chalet with good view in a wooded location. We used Grafton as a base for a short tour of the Coromandel and, located in Thames, Grafton was ideal for this.

    No WiFi reception in the chalet, but this is being addressed by thye proprietor. We needed WiFi to keep in touch with new grandchild arrival while we were away and WiFi availability was a factor in hotel choice.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We loved the location and the whole ambience of the setting. We would liked to have stayed longer and will definitely return in the future.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Friendliness of the owners. They left a tray of fruit, yoghurt, cereals on top of the usual tea, coffee etc. In addition they gave us a complimentary bottle of creme liquer from the local winery. That was so nice we went and bought three bottles! When we arrived jet lagged after 36 hours flying it was such an easy drive and distance from Auckland Airport. Our daughter who lives in New Zealand surprised us(and the owners) by being there when we arrived. The owners upgraded us so she could stay and didn't charge us any extra. A wonderful and unexpected kindness. To top it all, we saw the sunset from our living room which is supposed to be one of the 101 things for Kiwis to see - and that happened on our first night in NZ. Would whole heartedly recommend this accommodation.
