Decks of Paihia Luxury Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 21 Paihia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2010

Stayed here for 3 nights after a fairly long drive from Auckland. The Decks of Paihia has three very comfortable bedrooms with patio doors leading onto a deck (with an open-air pool which we didn’t use as the weather wasn’t warm enough), overlooking the wooded valley that leads to the coast. You couldn’t see the coast from our bedroom but could get a glimpse from the breakfast room downstairs. The B&B was15 minutes walk from the sea front up a very steep hill.

Phil, our very welcoming host, provided us with a very good breakfast. The bedroom was very comfortable but lacked the storage space we needed for our 6-week holiday (3 cases) so we only part unpacked.

Overall a very good experience and we would stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Phil & Wendy and their beautiful B&B. The view from the decks is amazing, and the pool area is inviting and relaxing. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Free wireless internet was a definite bonus. Breakfast was simple, but good. The location is a little out of the way, but worth it for the peaceful surroundings. Phil was very helpful with planning and booking our activities and went above and beyond the call of duty with tracking down our lost camera case and mailing it on down the line to us. BIG THANK YOU, Phil! (Hope that hand is healing up)

Phil and Wendy Hopkins - owns and runs this gorgeous Bed & Breakfast on to of a hill over looking the bay of islands. The views from their home is spectacular, they are a very nice and friendly couple who made us FEEL like we were home. The rooms are a good size that steps on to a porch and a gorgeous pool. Surrounded by nature and overlooking the sea, what more could you ask for?
Wonderful honeymoon away :)

This B&B is for sure a treat. Your host Wendy knows how to make you feel welcome and @ home with that first smile and a welcoming hand shake. The house is beautiful and you will not be disappointed with your room! Just so confortable,the bed is enormous and a good nite sleep is assured. Be sure to have time for b`fast, spoil yourself with a muffin and your choice of drinks.Wendy can help out with the plans for the day if you need it, try to stay in the area for 2/3 days as there is so much to see and do. Loved every minute,hope to be back!

This was our first time in New Zealand. We were greeted after a tiring drive from Auckland by our hosts and shown to a five star room with en-suite bathroom plus decking overlooking the swiming pool and lovely garden. Phil and Wendy were perfect hosts and gave us invaluable advice enabling us to plan the next stages of our journey through NZ as well as making reservations for us. Suffice it to say, breakfasts were also excellent.
Decks of Paihia is within reasonable walking distance of the pretty resort town of Paihia which is a ideal base for exploring by car and water an area of historic significance and one with much natural beauty.

Had a wonderful few days at this B&B. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, Phil & Wendy. Ask what was good to do around Paihia and they would not only advise you but book things and tell you when and where to go. The accomodation was also fantastic (think Boutique Hotel standard) and if you wanted to use anything like the internet or a washing machine you just had to ask. Could not have asked for better hosts or a better B&B.
