"Wendy and Gary were wonderful hosts. They opened their home to us, and we had a great experience. Their house and grounds are beautiful, and were peaceful and serene. The rooms were very clean and cozy, and breakfast was lovely. They were both wonderful to talk to, and make you feel at ease. Highly recommended."

"I stayed at Thorold with Gary & Wendy and was made to feel very welcome in their immaculate kept, comfortable acommodation. Breakfast and dinner was excellant and the small holding with the animals made it a unique experince. I would reccomend it to anyone."

"What a treat. Such a wonderful feeling to come to this charming cozy place, surrounded by leafy trees, beautifully kept grounds and of course some curious sheep. It is New Zealand after all. The rooms are comfy and private and the cottage is a delight. In fact, it is actually a roomy house, a home away from home. The perfect place to come home to after a hard day exploring the delights of the Coromandel. Wendy is an exceptional cook and mealtimes are a delight. She and Gary are wonderful hosts. They have travelled extensively and lived overseas, so dinnertime conversations are lively and fascinating. It is obvious they enjoy their guests. High recommendations!"

"If you're in the Coromandel/Thames area, then this is the place I'd recommend staying. Wendy and Gary are the most charming people and made me feel so welcome that I felt I would like to (as I wrote in their guest book) stay on forever. This is beautiful house with fantastic surrounds just outside of Thames."
