Reviewed 10 August 2014

We stayed for six nights in the Romantica Room. Wow what can we say - it was perfect in every way! The view from our room was stunning, the room was immaculate, the breakfast superb (my husband said it was the best in New Zealand!) and Inge was a wonderful host, so accommodating and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Her recommendations of things to do and places to visit were fantastic. The surprise glass of bubbles and departing nibbles topped off a most enjoyable honeymoon week. Thanks again and hope to see you again in the future.

My husband and I had a fabulous get away at this gorgeous accommodation in Pahia. Inge's hospitality and attention to detail during our two nights at the Chalet made our experience and stay memorable. Very comfortable room, together a with kitchenette and living area, a balcony with bay views and sun streaming in if you decide to stay in. As our stay included a scrumptious dinner and breakfasts too, we felt suitably spoilt. Very personalised and tasteful elegance. The starry dinner was a beautiful surprise.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary by escaping to Paihia. Thank you to Inge and Ed, they are fabulous hosts and we had the best time. The whole experience was top notch. The room, breakfast and the balcony views were excellent. Definitely recommend for a friendly high quality bed and breakfast stay. We plan to return again.

Our New Zealand holiday got off to a great start with 4 days at Chalet Romantica. Inge and Ed are the perfect hosts.
Our verdict - Chalet Romantica was the nicest, friendliest, most comfortable of all the many nice places we stayed in NZ during our four week trip.
A handy tip - We flew into Auckland with Air New Zealand (excellent service) and pre-booked the connecting flight with Air New Zealand Link from Auckand to the small airport at Kerikeri. (Worth checking out, as you may be able to include this connection on your flight ticket at no extra charge). At Kerikeri, a friendly airport shuttle service meets the flights. They transferred us direct to Chalet Romantica, at very reasonable fare.
We heartily endorse the comments from other reviews, Chalet Romantica is the perfect place to stay.

We stayed in the Romantica Suite for four nights in April 2014 and it was just perfect. The room was large, spotless and very comfortable with amazing views. Inge and Ed were great. Inge was so friendly and only too happy to help with anything including suggestions on what to see and do and went the extra mile when booking our Swim with the Dolphins tour (which was amazing). The breakfast was also amazing - as good as a 5 star hotel and the view while eating breakfast is just perfect. It's the only place I've stayed where the hotel owner walked me to my car and hugged me goodbye. Paihia was lovely and I would go back again just to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Try and book the Romantica Suite.

The name is perfectly descriptive - Chalet Romantica - a Swiss-style Alpine Chalet furnished and managed with Romantic panache and great style. It sits on a hill with wonderful views overlooking the sea. We took the last remaining room, the smaller 'Retreat', but it was private and cosy and anyway we had use of the main terrace for our sundowner glass of wine. Everything you could need is here, Inge has thought of everything, and placed it with great attention to presentation and detail. The garden and house is beautifully kept. The stunning breakfast table is surely out of a romantic dream.

How could you stay anywhere else when in Bay of Islands? Perfect!
