“Perfect!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

This proved just perfect for our overnight stay en route to Auckland. It's just far enough from the hub of town to provide a haven of peace and tranquility but not so far that we couldn't comfortably walk into town to dine at Bullion in the main street. Our little 'flat' was clean, comfortable and spacious. Just right. Highly recommendable.

We only stayed for the one night but the sun was shining and we really enjoyed the lovely garden setting - and listening to the bird song. We found the property to be very clean, recently decorated, and well equipped units with nice big beds.

We recently stayed at Brookby Motel following a sudden family bereavement. Barbara our hostess was very kind ,thoughtful and went the extra mile to help. She provided accommodation at sudden notice for extra family members too. Our motel was beautifully clean and comfortable. It met all our requirements. The setting of the stream with bush nearby and the lovely bird song gave us the tranquility we needed at this particular time. Parking was close to our door and access easy. A very warm 'Thankyou' Barbara for providing affordable, pleasant accommodation in such a beautiful setting which is within easy walking distance to the main street with all its shops and the hospital too.

Room Tip: We prefer end units which get the sun.

We stayed for one night and found it comfortable and relaxing .
Barbara booked us in quickly and provided us with a jug of milk ( for a welcome cup of tea ) and some biscuits .
The room was clean and comfortable and a good size . There was a small balcony with a table and two chairs at the back , and this was used later ,to sit and enjoy the sound of the nearby brook and have a quiet drink .
It is situated within easy walking distance of Thames , and is ideal for a quiet break away .

We decided to travel to the coromandel, and Thames was our first stop on the way, we discovered Brookby Motel by chance, very clean motel, and comfortable bed. Thank you Barbara, you do a wonderful job.

I SITE made a mistake with our booking but Barbara was very helpful trying to find our correct motel with 5 or 6 calls to other motels without success. She then offered us a suitable room,. everything very satisfactory and the location is very quiet. our car parking was slightly difficult

We stayed at Brookby Motel for two nights in January. In a pleasant quiet location Brookby is very handy to Thames town. The unit was comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. Super comfortable bed and pillows.
