We stayed at Appledore Lodge in the Riverside Studio for three nights - our first experience of bed and breakfast in New Zealand and at the start of a four week holiday. We had heard that B&B was very good in New Zealand and Appledore Lodge certainly exceeded our expectations. We knew immediately it would be a hard act to follow. The riverside location was breathtaking and we loved sitting on the veranda in the early morning listening to the sound of the river.
Janet and Jim were very congenial hosts and very helpful in arranging trips for us and advising us on the best places to visit. Our accommodation was very comfortable , spotlessly clean and the breakfasts, with the many homemade goodies, were extremely satisfying.
We found this a good location for visiting the surrounding area including trips to 90 Mile Beach, Waitangi and the Bay of Islands area. There were several good restaurants in Paihia but we also enjoyed making use of the comprehensive facilities in the studio, to prepare our own dinner and sit on the veranda sampling the excellent New Zealand wine enjoying the evening sunshine.
