THOROLD COUNTRY HOUSE—THAMES, NZ
The setting and generous hospitality of our hosts, Wendy and Gary, far exceeded our expectations. The area surrounding the house is beautiful, and our accommodations were spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable with a private entrance. Our delicious breakfasts were served in a delightful garden. Our host, knowing of our interest in farming and of our farm background, volunteered over 2 hours of his time to drive us to their large dairy cow operation and discuss details of mutual interest. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Further, on the first morning our hosts had a surprise card and gift at the breakfast table to celebrate my birthday.

I have stayed in several B&B's in New Zealand on various visits but nothing compares with the wonderful hospitality offered by Wendy and Gary at Thorold House near Thames. Unfortunately we were only able to spend 4 nights here at the end of our trip but wished we could have stayed for ever ! Wendy's home made marmalade is absolutely delicious and the lovely daily breakfast by the pool was an experience to remember !
From Thorold House you can easily reach all the beautiful beaches in the Coromandel Peninsular . The roads are almost deserted and the scenery breathtaking .It is also worth mentioning the tasty vegetarian cafe in Thames and the fantastic hot pool at nearby Miranda , both worth a visit ( or 2 ! )
For anyone planning a trip to the Coromandel area I would highly recommend Thorold Country House as a place to stay .Like us, you will be reluctant to leave !

I loved everything about Thorold House! The hosts Wendy and Gary were so welcoming right from the start and helped make our stay so special. The breakfasts were one of the best I have ever had and having it served in the beautiful garden by the pool all added to the experience! The accommodation was very clean and the setting very tranquil. I am a frequent visitor to New Zealand from England and this was probably my favourite place to stay so far. Highly recommended if you want total relaxation with great hosts in a peaceful setting. Will definitely be back next time I am in New Zealand!

Really enjoyed my stay here, Thames served as a great place to base ourselves when exploring the North Island, being close to both Auckland and the Coromandel was a real bonus; not to mention the scenic coastal roads near by.
Fantastic grounds at Thorold and welcoming locals in Thames, which was also full of great places to eat and shop!
I'd highly recommend staying at Thorold to anyone looking to visit the North Island,
Great hospitality and plenty of places to visit

We all loved this place. It was fun to look at the sheep and cows; Gary let my son help feed them in the morning. We adored the pool, which is in an absolutely lovely setting and perfect for refreshing dips in evening and morning. Wendy and Gary are both friendly, helpful with tourist advice, very welcoming. Went out of their way to accommodate our schedule. Very nice breakfast. Adjoining rooms are great for families. We are looking forward to going back!!
