Views from the deck outside the room were breathtaking. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the hot tub on the deck a lovely bonus. It’s a steep walk back up from town but worth it to be in such a peaceful and beautiful position overlooking the bay.

We stayed at Tarlton's Lodge between 8th and 9th December 2017.

The accommodation is hard to fault, nice private rooms with a terrace area with a lovely hot tub to sit back and enjoy the stunning views the property has to offer.

The hosts are very welcoming and provide all the information about the area and restaurants in the town which is great when you only have limited time to explore.

The place is on the outskirts of Paihia, up on the hill overlooking the bay. Obviously this means a short walk into town which takes about 7mins to the edges and around 15-18 to the central pier area which is no problem at all and is better on the way back to burn off some of the calories from dinner! You would not get the great views if the property was in the middle of town so a short walk to get the blood pumping is small sacrifice for the views from a hot tub.

The property has plenty of parking for rental vehicles which we had. Breakfast was included and you have a excellent selection to choose from and all served on your own table on your private terrace.

Hope this above review is useful for anyone looking to book accommodation in Paihia and after walking around town and looking at other accommodation options from the roadside we were really happy with our choice and would stay here again.

I have only given the location 4 stars as it is on the edge of town (which was not an issue for us at all) but 5 stars would give a false impression that it is on the seafront in Paihia.

It was a pleasure having you, James and Freya, and thanks so much for taking the time to write your review.
One of the notable features of Tarltons Lodge is the tranquillity of the location, enhanced by birdsong, the murmur of waves lapping on the beach below and the complete absence of any road & traffic noise. The view from any accommodation on the seafront in Paihia, by its very location, includes the beachfront road and comes with the associated vehicle congestion and road & traffic noise. Our guests coming from urban environments prefer the abovementioned tranquillity that Tarltons Lodge has to offer. For those guests on foot, not wishing to walk back up the hill, a courtesy car from a nearby restaurant or a local taxi company which services our guests, delivers them back up the hill at the end of the day.

I stayed here for three nights while on vacation with my boyfriend. It far exceeded our expectations - it was AMAZING. The hosts are so sweet and helpful, but also give you your total space and privacy. The room is nice, with a comfy bed and modern bathroom with a fantastic shower (I’m picky!)

The best part is the patio and the VIEW. We got breakfast each morning on our patio, and it was delicious. Listening to the bird and looking out onto the absolutely amazing water and Islands was seriously a dream. And getting in our private hot tub at night when the temps cooled down was EVERYTHING!

Staying here was a definite highlight of our trip. Highly recommend!

Tarlton's is the perfect place for a bit of relaxation and romance. A lovely room + an amazing view + hot tub + beautiful company = a perfect night. Peter and Katalina are great hosts and provide a lovely breakfast.

Peter and Katalina are the perfect hosts. Very friendly reception in a nice accommodation. Location is very quiet, breakfast is excellent. Peter gives a lot of recommendations. Already on the website you can see that the B & B is run personally. Especially the view a reason to book there.
