“Absolutely stunning, can't recommend enough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

This is a fabulous place. Truly make you feel at home with the farm animals nearby, homemade goods at breakfast and the sunny deck to take it all in. Interior is in its original condition and the craftsmanship of that alone is worth seeing. Hosts were second to none and was a lovely stop over during the bike trail.

The Corbett House is a completely unexpected architectural gem and if you like woodwork you will be entranced. We stayed a night and it was the ideal place to break the Hauraki Rail Trail with the very genuine Pioneer Tavern nearby for food, beer and wine and a reminder of the way things used to be. Margo and Mike were informative and helpful hosts and the rooms available for guests to use were perfect. The best bit for me was using the full size billiard table which has all the original equipment.

Go there and experience something different.

We stayed at Corbett House over the Easter break while cycling the Hauraki Rail Trail. The house itself is beautiful with all the original features. Margot and Mark were great hosts going beyond the call of duty, repairing a puncture on one of our bikes. The food was great and plenty of it, and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely people. Highly recommended.

Have stayed in B&Bs all over the world and Corbett House is one of the best! Don't leave NZ without a night or two here. Beautiful, historic house, warm and friendly atmosphere, rail trail right on your doorstep and the best hosts.Very hard to find such an interesting house where you feel so at home! Thank you so much Margo and Mark will definitely be back.

Room Tip: had the "blue room" at the back of the house...beautiful room with such a comfortable bed!

If you are a visitor to New Zealand or not, this as a perfect example of an old New Zealand stately home. The hosts ( Margo and Mark) were very hospitable and we felt at home immediately. Don't hesitate, stay here if you are doing the Hauraki Rail Trail or are about to explore the Coromandel .Mark has a collection of bikes that he is happy to show guests and Margo looks after the animals and the homestead. We had a wonderful stay.

What a lovely three days we had being looked after so well by the hosts of Corbett House. We spent each day cycling different sections of the Hauraki Rail trail as Corbett House is perfectly placed so the whole trail can be covered in three roughly 40-50km pleasant rides. Wonderful to come home to cool off in the pool. Lovely comfortable rooms looking out over the countryside. The house has a very interesting history and a really nice ambiance. We will go back as there is still so much to do in the area, could spend a couple more days in the stunning Karangahake George. Lots of great walking trails to find and cafes all through the area.

Room Tip: We slept in the room at the end of the hall on the right, it was lovely.
