Our time spent at the Longhouse was easily one of the best holiday experiences my partner and I have ever had. The location is absolutely beautiful, ever so slightly out of town making it feel as though you are in complete relaxing seclusion, yet still so close to the vibrant town of Paihia that driving in for dinner or other...

Stayed two nights at the Longhouse at the beginning of my three week trip round NZ - and if I could have gone back there for breakfast every day I would have done. Home-made muesli, fresh fruit (and I don't mean a chopped apple!) and a fabulous cooked breakfast with delicious free-range eggs and bacon. Sets you up perfectly for... More

What a delightful find this was. We had a wonderful time with Mike and John in this delightful B & B, our only regret being we only had 2 nights with them. This was our favourite accomodation on our 2 weeks in New Zealand. Excellent hosts, lovely rooms and delightful breakfasts.

We came across this B&B when honeymooning in New Zealand in February. What a find. It was our favourite of the entire trip and we stayed in a lot of B&B's during our 3 week visit. John & Mike have it spot on. They read their guests perfectly and quickly figure out if their guests want to be left alone... More

We were picked up in Paihia by our gracious host John, who realized that we came by bus. Very kind of him! We checked in, and went back in to Paihia. We were recommended places to lunch and dine, and both were very good tips. We had booked the King room, and were very happy with it! Large and comfortable... More

We had been recommended to Longhouse by friends so our expectations were high, and John and Mike did not disappoint. Very friendly and very helpful, they were happy to advise about anything. The property itself was stunning, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We just wish we could have stayed longer, but it will be a lasting memory of New Zealand.

Very comfortable, and stylish, and made even more special by great hosts who went the extra mile to help us out with bookings, and ideas for things to do and see, which proved to be great . Lovely quiet separate unit, spotlessly clean, loads of space, delicious breakfast cooked to order, these two know what hospitality is all about.

We needed to stay in Paihia as we were on our way south to Auckland. We picked out the Long house B and B and it was an excellent choice. The room was quite spacious, comfortable (homey) and very well decorated. The room was also quite bright due to windows and sliding doors on each side. There was also a... More
