Business trip to Thames. Very friendly hosts made me welcome. Great to get shortbread and liqueur. Stayed in the small Rata room which was perfectly fine for my visit. Clean and tidy room with fantastic views and magic sunset. Would definitely book again.

About
Description
The Lonely Planets pick for Thames. Nestled high in the hills above Thames, Grafton Cottage and Chalets is in a excluded, peaceful tree-lined setting far from any traffic noise. At the end of each day exploring More the Coromandel, relax in the spa, or simply laze by the pool overlooking the sea. BBQ your dinner while watching the sun set over the sea or sample the local restaurants. We offer self contained chalet accommodation in individually designed studio, 1 and 2 bedroom cedar chalets. A delicious full continental breakfast (Grafton Cottage style), on site staff and daily housekeeping is included in the room rate. Less
