This has to be one of the best B&Bs we've had the pleasure to stay at (and we've been to NZ five times so stayed at quite a few!). We had 3 nights in the Romantica Suite which was modern, stylish, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great views over the bay from the balcony. Our host Inge was very welcoming and provides a superb breakfast. Inge is very helpful and can advise on activities - we did the walk to Haruru Falls (2-3hrs) which was excellent, and the half day cruise round the Islands, passing through the Hole in the Rock. But we also enjoyed just relaxing at the B&B eg having a cup of tea on the balcony or soaking in the hot spa. Thank you Inge, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return when we next find ourselves in the North Island.

My daughter and I stayed 2 nights at this most perfect home. Inge was the most generous hostess. She welcomed us into her home and feed us wonderful breakfasts. The room had a beautiful view of the bay and was large and very comfortable. There was attention paid to every detail of our stay. I don't think we have ever felt more pampered in our lives. Would highly recommend!

Chalet Romantica is our first B&B experience. It was a perfect start to our NZ holiday. The service is impeccable yet personal, the view is breath taking. Inge was very attentive and friendly. We would highly recommend Chalet Romantica to any friends and family.

What a wounderful place. I was here for 4 nights, and it was just great. In theory one could have spent the whole morning languishing contentedly over the most sumptious and extended breakfast, and taking in the stunning view (even watching the rain, wouldn't be a problem). Make sure you have the yogurt with caramel!!! Inge was amazing and charming- nothing was too much trouble for her, in fact the small details were better than in a lot of hotels costing far more. Husband Ed was a charmer too. Everything was spotless. I didn't try the spa area, but it looked good!

Room tip: If you want a view, don't take the retreat. If you want a more self contained area, take the retreat.

It is a really elegant and sweet place to stay in Paihia!!! We had a fantastic time from morning to night there.
The host couple are sooooo nice and welcoming every guest of details. For example, they printed a piece of paper with our name and welcoming worlds to let us know their warm welcoming.
The bed was comfortable with nice lights and fragrant.
The balcony was spacious and face to the sea!
I was very enjoyable there and drawing a small sketch to the host for thanking them.
P.S.: there is a small farm behind the house to rise lovely goats.

Room tip: the host will give you the best room when you are arriving!
