This is our favourite B&B out of the 19 different places we stayed at in NZ and Australia.
We stayed in the Riverside Room – a light, spacious room, comfortable and tastefully furnished, with a wonderful ensuite spa bathroom and views over the stunning grounds to the rear. Nothing had been missed from the welcome pack of goodies and bathroom toiletries. There is a large deck outside the room which provides external access to the lounge, space for lazing, and views of the grounds and birds.
The lounge is large, welcoming, and comfortable – with the same fantastic views to the rear. The dining area adjoins – meals are taken in style.
The grounds (4 acres)! – smooth green tended lawn and beds of shrubs slope down to the river; there are wilder areas to explore along the river (across which the views continue); and even the friendly white goats are immaculate in their dress…
And best of all – hosts Paul and Barbara are a friendly couple- eager to please, and genuinely thoughtful in their advance suggestions of tours, restaurants and entertainment. They are fabulous cooks, and sharing conversation over a delicious evening meal was memorable. We can only summarise:
Don’t even think about staying elsewhere in Paihia – Morepork Lodge must be better!More
