Such a lovely place with a wonderful host that epitomizes the meaning of hospitality. Made to feel incredibly welcome - gorgeous setting and lovely location. Beautiful room - very well equipped and amazing view over the bay. Inge was very sweet and helpful and everything was exceptionally clean.

A Perfect 10 Inge and Eddie could not have done more to make our stay memorable and we recommend Chalet Romantica to all visitors. The views both from our room and the breakfast room gave a panoramic view of The Bay which will stay with us forever. The Breakfast was stunning and beyond five star hotel standards. From the provision...

Chalet Romantic is such a great experience that words are not enough to truly do justice to this "Jewel in the Bay of Islands-Paihia". Jan & I can't say enough or describe it well enough to truly capture the wonderful experience, the owners (Inge & Ed), the staff, and the chalet and grounds. We stayed 10 days to fully enjoy...

If you are visiting Paihia this is the only place to stay if you want first class service and facilities. Inge is an excellent hostess and her breakfasts are divine - fresh fruit salad, yogurts, home baked bread and rolls, cooked breakfast, cheese, toast and coffee. Her breakfast table was stunningly laid out and facing the Bay of Islands. Our...

Great location and fantastic views over the bay. Inge is one in a million. A wonderful host who has thought of everything. We stayed in the top floor suite which was beautifully appointed. Many of the reviews rave about the breakfasts - they are truly out of this world! Better than you'd find at many high end hotels. Paihia is...

Chalet Romantica sits above the town with a lovely view of the town and water. It is very easy to walk to the local shops and restaurants. Inge is a wonderful, warm inn keeper who made sure everything was spotless and perfect. Our room had everything from make up removers wipes to nail polish remover to some soap to do...

As others have noted,Inge is a gracious and welcoming host. Our room had a wonderful view of Paihia Harbor and was well equipped. There are personal touches everywhere that made it a memorable stay. The location is good and walking to the wharf and stores is very feasible. Breakfasts are wonderful with a delicious variety of fruit, cereals, fresh-squeezed juice,...

Beautiful Paihia was made even better by Inge, our host. We felt like being at home (we stayed in the Romantika Suite). Inge gave me a jar of coffee for the room as I drink a lot of coffee which is just one of the little touches which makes it so special to stay here. Magnificent breakfast which caters to...

“Use the pool as swimming against the current will use up the extra calories. We chose the loft suite which has the full feeling of space.”
