John and Mike made us welcome, looked after us very well, were very helpful and of good advice for sightseeing in the region. They provided us with delicious breakfast and diner on our last night, which was excellent... More

Fantastic service. Room was lovely, good king bed and serviced during the day. Great location and nothing was any trouble. Breakfast was extensive and anything cooked for you fresh if you wanted it. Would recommend to anyone travelling to the Bay of Islands.

We stayed at the Longhouse between 11 Dec and 14 Dec to explore the Bay of Isles area. Our room was large and impeccably clean as was the shower room. The bed was comfortable.

We have been to the Longhouse B&B several times and each time John & Mike excel themselves in their hospitality. The rooms are exquisitely appointed with no detail left unturned. The food is unbelievable - the breakfast menu could come from a Michelin Star restaurant. If you're going to Paihia (Haruru Falls) and want to try an amazing experience in... More

The Queen Suite feels like brand new and is very smart and spacious. John and Mike are very relaxed to chat to, over a drink and over breakfast. The personally presented, fruits, cereals and fresh rolls, plus the personally cooked breakfasts by Chef John, are most appetising. We advised a day in advance and ate in for dinner on our... More

It was an excellent B&B! John, the host, was very helpful, cook a wonderful, breakfast for every 3 days. (You can ask what you like, I liked the bacon, hashbrown & the sausages.) Had lots of coffee, cereals with raisins, grapes, and fruits. (Melons, papayas) You were literally stuffed for breakfast! The room was very clean, and the bed was... More
