What a wonderful place to stay. Dan and Natasha gave us a very warm welcome. The room was lovely and the views stunning. Hot tub was perfect way of ending the day and added something extra special to a first class and romantic B&B. Superb breakfast with lovely cake and cookies provided by Natasha. They deserve their number 1 rating... More

Many thanks to Dan and Tash for a fantastic stay. As reviewers have said in previous reviews they are excellent hosts who have the perfect balance of helpfulness and visibility. The location is an easy 15 min walk into the town centre, albeit the walk back up the hill could be challenging for some. Breakfast was amazing. We had a... More

This is off the beatwn track up a steep driveway but wow what gorgeous views of Paihia. The amazing spa, delicious breakfast and great coffee make it something special. Comfortable bed and very romantic, private setting. Lovely hosts we'll be staying here again - soon I hope!

Dan & Tash are lovely hosts making you feel welcome from the first moment and can't do enough for you. With breakfast served on your balcony looking at the views of Paihia bay, if you want to escape the backpackers and either relax in a hot tub or just relax with stunning views, then this is the place for you....

All of the rooms at Tarltons Lodge have great views of the bay. Although slightly out of town, the town centre is walkable, the driveway is quite steep though so a little energy is required for the last push home! Dan and Natasha are lovely hosts; attentive, welcoming and friendly. Natasha is a very good cook and breakfast is certainly... More

Having stayed in several B&B around New Zealand, I dare say that Tarlton's Lodge gave the best experience. We were greeted by the friendly Tash and Dan, who took great effort in making our stay a comfortable one. They usually serve breakfast between 8-8.30 am but when I told Dan that we had to be picked up at 7.15 am... More

The hosts: very friendly and accommodating. The B&B is located just out of town on a hillside overlooking the Bay of Islands. The place is very quiet and calm. The room was... More
