This could not have been better and at the end of a 4 week visit to NZ it was the perfect finale, in the event we wished we had left another couple of days to explore the Coromandel. Garth and Adrienne did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and were superb hosts; tea and cakes on arrival, nibbles with...

Garth and Adrienne are super hosts, only sorry we were not stopping longer. The location is wonderful in a lovely part of North Island. In the short time we were there, the hosts could not have been more helpful. Would recommend to anyone to stay and we hope to return in the future, thank you.

We arrived in the evening, the latest of the guests that day but were warmly welcomed by Garth and Andrienne who greeted us with a bright smile. Garth gave us a bottle of cold water to drink which was very thoughtful as we'd just returned from the lost springs. He also kindly offered some suggestions on places to visit that...

We stayed a Cotswold Cottage for 2 nights during our tour of the Coromandel. Garth & Adrienne have only recently taken over this B&B, but they are excellent hosts and this must be one of the best B&B's we've stayed at. The pictures don't really do it justice. The Cottage is positioned on a hillside with fabulous views over the...

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Adrienne and Garth are great hosts, very friendly and take a lot of extra effort to add lots of extra little touches. With Adrienne's attention to detail and her decor flair she has got it so right. We had the room with the Neatherwood suite, everything was just...

We stayed with Garth and Adrienne, the new hosts for only 1 night and wished we had booked for much longer. The place really felt like home with a caring heart.. The little touches made it interesting and the absence of little notices that can be too obvious in other B and B's enabled us all the more to relax....
