Stayed for 3 nights in the top floor suite at the beginning of February and what a wonderful start to our month in New Zealand. The views from the balcony are stunning and the rooms are equipped with everything you could possibly need.
The breakfast was amazing and a wonderful start to the day. If you are thinking of staying in Paihia this is the place to be.

Search high and low, Follow every highway, Every path you know!!! Well, you won't actually have to climb a mountain to get to this delightful Austrian inspired B&B on the hill above Paihia but it would be worth it if you did. We won't repeat the many superlatives that are in so many reviews on this site but instead just say we agree with them all. However it would be remiss of us if we did not say that Inge is the most helpful and enthusiastic hostess we have ever encountered and the breakfasts she provides are unmatched in our experience. We are already looking for excuses to return.

Room Tip: One room does not have an ensuite

We stayed for three nights at the end of a wonderful holiday and could not have stayed in a better place. The views from the balcony across the bay are stunning, the rooms are spotlessly clean,comfortable and are well equipped. Inge is a wonderful hostess, always willing to offer advice and help and her breakfast table is a work of art, it is almost a shame to spoil it by eating the sumptuous breakfast....almost!!! If ever you are in the area this is "a must stay place", a real gem.

Room Tip: They are all good. Watch the video on the web site to to decide your preference.

We stayed here for 3 nights in February and had a wonderful stay. We chose the top floor suite as we were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday whilst on holiday and thought this would be the icing on the cake. The room was beautiful with lots of thoughtful touches like soft dressing gowns and
chocolates on the pillow. We even had a glass of champagne brought to us one evening. The chalet has a pool, hot tub and mini gym, all kept immaculately clean and the views from all the rooms are to die for. Inge is the perfect host who will give you plenty of advice and offer local knowledge and tips and book trips and restaurants for you but she is never intrusive if you wish to be left alone. Finally, if you love your food then don't miss the breakfasts. Would recommend without hesitation.

Although the rooms are quite small in this Swiss Chalet perched on top of a hill, they are spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped and with a delightful balcony overlooking the Bay of Islands. Breakfasts are everything you could ask for and served around a large communal patio table. The hospitality of the Swiss owner is infectious. Her eagerness to please, her efficiency of service and travel guide advice are outstanding. B&B at the highest standard and what you always hoped for and only seldom find.
