A Warm Welcome Once we had located the correct door to knock at everything else was just perfect. We had a queen room with en-suite – with it's own entrance, hence the problem choosing the right door !

We stayed for 2 nights in the king room and it was perfect! John was the perfect host making us feel very welcome and able to give us local knowledge on the area. We got a lovely cooked breakfast each morning which included delicious homemade bread - small details like this shows they go the extra mile in my eyes!... More

First impressions - oh wow! Ample parking and easy to find. We had a 10 hour road trip and were feeling a bit ragged. Out comes our host John and immediately we felt welcome. We stayed in the Queen room with ensuite and it was dreamy and inviting. So inviting Rick "crashed out" on the bed for a few hours.... More

There's nothing like a top-notch B&B to make you feel like the forever flight from the States and long drive from Auckland were all worth it. We were warmly welcomed by John and Mike, loved our quiet, immaculately clean, comfortable King Room (which was separate from the rest of the house) and were given great advice on things to see...

I arrived at Longhouse B&B on Christmas Day of 2013 -- the first day of my 3 week holiday in NZ. It was pouring buckets in Auckland, and the drive north was quite gloomy.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in Feb 14. The B&B is situated about 5 min drive outside Paihia at the end of a quiet cul de sac. Approach road is very steep from the main road so take care.

We stayed only two nights at the Longhouse B&B due to our schedule - but we really enjoyed it and would stay there anytime again! The Longhouse B&B is located a bit outside, maybe some 4km away from the beach and town - but on the other hand it's quite. Situated on a small hill above Paihia the Longhouse provideds... More
