Couldn't ask for any better a 5 star place and hosts to match. Many thanks to Dan and Natasha for your warm hospitality and fantastic apartment highly recommend this to all coming to paihia. Views of the bay from the hot tub are too beautiful for words.

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

Natasha and Dan were so lovely and they made everything so easy and relaxing (They even gave us a ride to our tour boat). The rooms were well-presented, clean and tidy. The view from the room was beautiful. The breakfast was to die for ("real" coffee too!) The spa was a nice luxury. Amazing place to stay, and would definitely... More

Highly recommended for couples looking for that extra touch in terms of a stunningly beautiful panoramic view , friendly and attentive hosts who meet all expectations and then go that extra distance in providing BBQ and dining facilities to eat our freshly caught fish. The daily delicious breakfast was varied and beautifully presented. Thank you Natasha and Dan.
