Although early having arrived from Auckland airport after an overnight flight we were treated very well indeed and the owners worked hard to get our room ready. The room was excellent in terms of space and for outstanding views over Mercury Bay. The drawback was the busy through road outside but even this was quite at nighttime. We would still recommend this as very good place to stay in the Coromandel peninsula.
