Breakfasts were elegant with a combination of the European and New Zealand delicacies artfully prepared. Inge, the host, made us arrangements for many activities as well as restaurants. The accommodations offered all the comforts of a...

After spending our first two nights in NZ in the mediocre Grand Sky City , a supposedly 5 star hotel , it was refreshing to find that there are places that truly live up to the rating. From the warmth of the welcome to the meticulous attention to detail in the superbly appointed rooms it's impossible to overstate what a...

A beautiful place to stay: stunning view, lovely room, great breakfast. We loved Inge's warm, relaxed and personal style. She's a perfect host. The place is very cosy, well equipped and close to the village/the bay. We felt at home the minute we walked into the door. A place one is dreaming of.

Excellent room, perfectly equipped, great views from the room and from the breakfast room over the Bay of Islands. The breakfast is excellent. Inge is the perfect host, she gave us recommendations for restaurants, visits and trips; she even booked the trips for us. The stay was one of our highlights of our New Zealand roundtrip.

A wonderful break at Chalet Romantica . Inge was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. A must for anybody staying in the Bay of Islands. All rooms of a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Great views over the Bay, breakfast the best I've ever had and all within easy walking distance of Paihia.

Great location over looking the bay up on the hill. Inge made our stay wonderful, with her cheerful nature. She provided wonderful breakfasts to start of our days. Room and bed was very comfortable, outside our room was a area for sitting in the sun which was great. Would definitely come back.
