My wife and I recently spent 2 weeks touring the N Island of NZ. Though my wife did most of the bookings for the tour it fell to me to find 2 night's accommodation in the Coromandels. Lets just say I nailed it with 970 Lonely Bay.
The property is absolutely stunning in itself, but add to this the incredibly warm and generous care and attention to detail lavished upon you by the fabulous host Loring and you will be hard pressed to find a better place to stay anywhere in NZ. Her delicious pre dinner nibbles and world class breakfasts will leave you feeling very spoilt.
The rooms are gorgeous in every way. Modern finishes, ultra comfortable beds, beautifully appointed bathrooms, amazing natural lighting - its impossible to find fault here.
Its location close to the beach in the pretty little Cooks Beach area is hard to beat and hopping on the nearby passenger ferry across the water to Whitianga makes for a really lovely night out in one of their many restaurants over there.
We would head back to 970 in a flash - it really is a special and impressive place made even better by its fabulously fantastic host Loring.
