Value
We have a purpose built, three-bedroom our star bed & breakfast with exotic garden, swimming pool and parking. The rooms have Queen or Super King beds, which can be converted two twin beds. Each room is comfortably furnished with private bathroom. Our famous breakfasts are taken upstairs in our dining room with fabulous views of Tairua Harbour and will certainly set you up for the day ahead. Hosts Jane and Chris are always on hand to help you plan your Coromandel stay - with nearby 'must sees' like Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove. Harbour View is a short stroll from the town centre with its restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. The Harbour and Ocean Beaches are close by - and the summit of Mt Paku just a few minutes away.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's roadside board says 'a great place to stay' and it's just so. Our holiday organiser Silver Fern in the UK both recommended and arranged our stay. Our hosts Jane and Chris were brilliant, nothing was any trouble, the breakfast was lovely, the room comfortable and the location very good. Jane and Chris provided lots insight on things to do and had a really helpful info booklet detailing all on offer. I thoroughly recommend as a place to stay.

We stayed for 2 nights from the 19th March, upon arrival we were greeted very warmly by Chris and Jane, although we could tell they were very apprehensive about us being there due to the ongoing outbreak of COVID19. We had a king room that was at the front of the house on the ground floor, it was a large room and very clean. We were given a complimentary bottle of wine due to visiting for our 40th birthday celebrations. There were beach towels in the room for your use and spades outside the front door to take with you to hot water beach. The air conditioning in the room was super quiet, the bed very comfortable but there is no safe in the room. Breakfast was absolutely great, we had told them that I had a gluten and dairy intolerance, they certainly went out of their way to cater for this. You could have a mixture of fruit (which i loved) or granola with yoghurt, you then had a choice what you wanted for a cooked breakfast, they even supplied dairy free butter and gluten free bread. The homemade baked beans were also very good. This was our first experience of a bed and breakfast and it certainly has not put us off, we would definately recommend this property to future visitors to the area. From here you can walk to the local beach, which took about 20 minutes, the walk into the small town takes less than 5.

The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful, really nice room with a small balcony. Breakfast from the upstairs balcony overlooking the bay was fantastic, we sat inside the second morning but still a great view and to top it off the breakfast was superb. Simply the best B&B we have ever stayed in.

We stayed here for thee nights and absolutely loved the accommodation. We were greeted by name on arrival. Accommodation is excellent room was spacious clean and lovely decorated. It was great to have your own patio area. There is also a guest sitting room and beautiful garden with a pool. Jane and Chris made us feel at home and the advice they offered on the places we were going to visit was so helpful. The breakfast is also fantastic cooked to order with beautiful views of the harbour. This B&B is a must stay and excellent base if you are thinking of visiting the surrounding area. I highly recommend this place to stay.

This was a beautiful home away from home. The hosts were so helpful, courteous and friendly. Comfy rooms and great shower. It is set in walking distance to downtown and right on the ocean. . They serve a delicious breakfast. Their home is as clean as I’ve ever seen a B&B. They even did a load of laundry and gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. Definitely would recommend this place!!! 5 stars

Greeted by name upon arrival. Excellent attention to detail. Everything very well set out and really well looked after. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending (and have already done so for friends). Thank you very much Jane and Chris for looking after us!

We stayed at Harbour View just over three weeks ago. We were made to feel very welcome by Chris. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. Breakfast on both mornings was superb with a wide selection of freshly prepared items. Chris's knowledge of the local area was very helpful. He told us about a beach only accessed by foot. the accommodation and town is perfect for exploring the Coromandel coast.

Super B&B which gave us a great impression of New Zealand at the start of our mini drive around the North Island. The room was first rate and our hosts Jane and Chris, who had given us welcome advice before we travelled, were only too pleased to pass on further local knowledge and guidance on how to get the most out of our holiday. Perfectly located on the edge of the town with only a short walk to the centre this is one to be thoroughly recommended.

Our first stop outside of the big city of Auckland was at Tairua, and the Harbour View where Jane and Chris made us very welcome. The facilities were excellent, the room was very comfortable with a private patio looking across to Mt Paku. The garden and pool area was a great place to unwind and meet other guests. Breakfast in the upstairs dining room was excellent, with Chris and Jane on hand to chat and recommend things to do and places to go. A great start to our holiday, and we would highly recommend this B&B, and would definitely return!

This is a brilliant B&B run by Jane and Chris. Super friendly, very knowledgable of the area and offer beautifully presented rooms topped off with a cracking breakfast. Can’t believe you could find a better B&B in NZ.
