Our room was not large, but comfortable, well-equipped and had great views over the town and coast. Alby, the owner, was extremely helpful and informative. Breakfast was served in our room, and fitted our needs exactly. Highly recommended!

Very friendly and helpful welcome by our host. The cottage was well furnished, comfortable spacious bed, kitchen had everything we needed, tea, coffee and milk provided and were replenished daily. Views of the bay were stunning. Can recommend staying here to explore Coromandel Peninsula.

About
Description
The Lonely Planets pick for Thames. Nestled high in the hills above Thames, Grafton Cottage and Chalets is in a excluded, peaceful tree-lined setting far from any traffic noise. At the end of each day exploring More the Coromandel, relax in the spa, or simply laze by the pool overlooking the sea. BBQ your dinner while watching the sun set over the sea or sample the local restaurants. We offer self contained chalet accommodation in individually designed studio, 1 and 2 bedroom cedar chalets. A delicious full continental breakfast (Grafton Cottage style), on site staff and daily housekeeping is included in the room rate. Less
