My wife and I stopped in for some advice and the lady behind the counter was super friendly and cooperative. She offered good ideas for an older couple to do and we had a few laughs as well. One of the nicest I-sites we've been to.

Lovely helpful ladies in the centre allowed me into their private quarters so that I could use a mirror - I had purchased a hat and wanted to see what it looked like. Great service.

It may be small but the information available from the shelves and staff covered all a traveller would need to know about the Coromandel and area. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Some goods to purchase were available as well.
