Stayed here for three nights on a sojourn to Bay of Islands. Run by passionate musicians Natasha and Dan who, by their warm welcome, are just the icing on a first class establishment. Very comfortable bed, great pillows, beaut shower, great breakfasts on the balcony and a ten minute downhill walk to decent restaurants. "Al Fresco" is a must in... More

We couldn't fault Tarlton Lodge in any way, they take care of you with an amazing personal touch. We wouldn't hesitate staying there again and I... More

Tarlton's Lodge was the first place my wife and I stayed in New Zealand for our honeymoon. Since we were traveling by bus for this leg of our trip, Natasha, one of the hosts, offered to pick us up directly from the bus stop, and Dan, the other hosts, offered us a ride a few other times during our stay....

Very nice place to stay, silent place to stay on the top of a hill. A short walk to town centre where you can eat very well. The hosts Dan and Natasha are lovely and have a good service. They make your stay comfortable. Nothing is too much for them. The view from the room is stunning. The spa is... More

Perched high above the Bay of Islands this small lodging with three rooms offers high standards of comfort and terrific views of the bay. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very well appointed providing a quiet and secluded place to stay. An excellent breakfast in the main house is served by Dan and Natasha, the hosts, who make their guests feel... More

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.

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
