Stayed for three nights last week and cannot fault anything with the longhouse! Room was excellent - huge! Plus great wifi (free - which is pretty uncommon in nz we've discovered). Mike was fab - very welcoming and makes a great cooked breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the bay of Islands and would recommend this B&B to everyone.... More

My first stop after arriving in Auckland from the UK. A lovely welcome by John and I instantly felt at home. The room was first class with lots of space and its own deck to sit in the sun which I didn't get enough time to use. With only a couple of days in Paihia I was given all sorts... More

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. However, the sun came out as soon as I arrived at John and Mike's lovely hillside B&B. My room was large and very comfortable, the bathroom... More

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
