2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Allegra House, our spacious, modern home with an apartment and 3 bed and breakfast rooms located just up the hill from central Paihia. All rooms have spectacular views out across the bay. The house has gardens, balconies and native bush for guests to enjoy during their time in this peaceful but convenient location - less than 10 minutes walk down to restaurants, cafes and boat departures and maybe just a bit longer for the walk uphill on the bush track. Brita and Heinz have lived in the area since early 1990s and love to help you enjoy your time here. French and German spoken. Breakfast included in B & B rooms and an optional extra in the apartment.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the first place we stayed on our tour of New Zealand and what a start! We were very well looked after, with great accommodation overlooking the Bay of Islands. Superb breakfasts and very good knowledge of the area providing suggestions of what to do during our stay. Highly reccommend a stay here if you are in the area.

Our second visit and for a number of reasons. Heinz is a host with years of experience in tourism who goes above and beyond the norm to ensure his guests enjoy their stay. Stunning views across the water to Russell Bay are visible from all rooms.

The commitment of Brita and Heinz was fabulous. The house is only a 10 minute walk from the city centre and the view fabulous. This and the quality of the room made our stay a very good and a special one. We can everybody advise to go and visit this B&B and its owners.

Fantastic room with the most comfortable bed and faciilities that can't be faulted and the most amazing view. This is an obviously well cared for home as there will not be anything that requires attention. My fault that we spent only 1 night here as so much to see elsewhere and wished we had spent longer.

My husband and I stay at Allegra House the last two nights of our 3 week trip to New Zealand. After weeks of go go go, it was a wonderful place to sit back and chill a bit. The view from our room was amazing and the hosts Brita and Heinz were wonderful. Breakfast was delightful, sitting on the patio overlooking the Bay of Islands. A quick hop to Russell or Waitangi Treaty grounds or just a stroll in Paihia itself. We highly recommend Allegra House as THE place to stay in Paihia!

A wonderfully situated apartment/ accommodation nestled above the town looking out I’m to the sea. Great hosts and a well equipped apartment would certainly recommend this property. A short walk takes you into the small town of Paihia which gives you a great opportunity to explore the Bay of Islands.

We spent six nights at Allegra House which I think is sufficient to be able to give a considered opinion of the listing. We had a really great time staying at Allegra House. Our hosts, Heinz and Brita, were a wealth of knowledge about the area and were also extremely friendly and helpful with any queries or problems we had. Breakfast time was really enjoyable out on the terrace looking over towards Russell and watching the various boats out on the water - the breakfast was excellent too. Our room was spotlessly clean with a fantastic view and Allegra House is in a very good location - a short walk to restaurants and tourist facilities. If we ever visit the Bay of Islands again, Allegra House would be our first choice of the place to stay. Thank you Heinz and Brita for helping to make our time in Paihia so memorable.

We wound up our 6 weeks of touring around New Zealand by spending 3 nights in the Top Suite at Allegra House. It could not have been a more perfect end to our trip. Allegra House is a beautiful and super comfortable B &B with great views over the Bay of Islands from our balcony. The location is very convenient for Paihia village and restaurants, and is perfectly positioned for exploring the must see museum and other exhibits at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds which are very nearby. But best of all were our splendid hosts, Brita and Heinz, both of them charming, friendly and very knowledgeable. They made breakfast time a real treat, not just for the delicious freshly baked bread and other lovely goodies, but for their delightful company. Highly recommended.

My wife and I planned a 21 day trip to New Zealand with 2 weeks traveling the South Island and the remainder at Allegra House in the top suite. Our plan was to truly relax looking at the waters of the Bay of Islands. Allegra House was one of those places where when you walk in you say, "we should have doubled our time here!". Our room overlooked the bay from high above Paihia with unforgettable views. It was conveniently located 5 minutes from the downtown waterfront and the ferry to Russel where we dined twice during our stay. Brita & Heinz Marti were charming and attentive hosts with a delicious breakfast each morning catered to our schedule. The experience was special for us because breakfast was when we met the other travelers and traded experiences and conversation which we always find to be most enjoyable. We only regret not living closer to the Bay of Islands and Allegra House so we could visit again.
