Fodor's Expert Review Coastal Motor Lodge

608 Tararu Rd., Thames, Waikato, 3500, New Zealand

Set amid 3 acres of gardens, with native bushwalks to the rear of the property and the Thames coast just across the road, this is a spacious, scenic spot to stay as you enter Coromandel. Accommodations include A-framed chalets, plus fully accessible units, family rooms, and budget cottages. Some units are elevated with sea views, great for watching sunsets and migratory seabirds. There's free Wi-Fi throughout.
