Inge made us feel like royalty throughout our 3-day stay in her beautifully appointed B&B. Her warmth, smile, and care of every little detail made our stay totally memorable. Breakfast is a true culinary event and the meals are five-star while guests are absorbed in conversation - all with a backdrop of the fabulous view of the Bay of Inlands... More

We turned up at midday - earlier than expected - but were nonetheless welcomed wholeheartedly by Inge. Our rooms were ready, but more importantly, she insisted that we catch the 1.30 p.m. Boat tour around the Bay of Islands, since "tomorrow the weather won't be so nice". She immediately made all the bookings (with a 10% discount) on-line, printed the... More

From our first greeting to final farewell the service here is exceptional.To add to that the room is a delight,with stunning views,and only a 5 minute walk to good restaurants. The breakfast is a feast,with fruit,cereal,anything you require cooked fresh and again stunning views. This is the best B and B that we have ever stayed in. Thank you Inge!

We began our month long travel in NZ at Inge's B&B. We were delighted by her warm welcome, the spacious and lovely Romantica Suite and Inge's fabulous breakfasts. It was the perfect base for our visit to the Bay of Islands. We highly recommend Chalet Romantica.

My wife and I highly recommend this excellent B&B for a stay in Paihia. We only stayed a single night in the Retreat Room. The owner, Inge, is extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Our room was very modern with very plush and comfortable furnishings and plenty of amenities. Ange brought us glasses of sparking wine prior to dinner and advised... More

This might be the most comfortable, enjoyable and memorable B&B I have ever stay! Very beautiful garden and sea view. The owner is welcome and thoughtful and helped us a lot. I wish I could stay longer! 相当赞的B&B,绝对是Paihia最好的。在一个山坡上俯瞰海湾。女老板热情,周到,早餐绝对五星级酒店标准。不要错过~
