“Superb Stay !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We stayed at Baystay for three nights in Jan 2013. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with a lovely stylish ensuite shower room.The B & B location was perfect , with the most amazing views from the terrace ! Our hosts Rob and Nick were great with suggestions of places to eat and visit , even booking a fantastic Day Cruise to the Hole in the Rock for us! The breakfast was delicious and the best start to the day.We had a Fantastic stay and hope to return again soon,thankyou Rob for looking after us so well !

Rob and Nick have both the capicity to make you feel home.
Helping in making trips and also for finding a good diving club.
And the trips we have made are more than they have told before. In nothing we were disappointed
An amazing Breakfast, where the hotels take a lesson from it,and when you enyoy your breakfast you have a look over the River. Fantastic.
They make the name B and B too a high level.
After four days we didn't have had the feeling of B and B but more the feeling of a more than five stars hotel. When we go again to New Zealand we will return for sure.

Two amazing hosts - these guys know the surroundings in detail and can help u with anything.

The room, house, views and location are all very good.

We got the best breakfast in our 4 weeks of travel, beating a cruiseship and posh hotels.

Room Tip: The riverview room is worth those extra dollars.

This was only our second stop in New Zealand and we weren't dissappointed. Nik & Rob run a tight ship on a very business-like footing. They were very efficient with recommendations for places to eat and things to do. (Great tip to visit Russell). Also very helpful in booking any trip requirements ahead of our arrival.

The location is superb, just outside Paihia with great views across the river valley. There is a great decking area to enjoy this if the weather is good. The bedroom was a reasonable size, very clean and functional. There was also a comfortable communal lounge area. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful.

Only stayed 2 nights which is not really sufficient to do the area justice.

We first stayed here a few years ago, and had a delightful time, so this time we made sure to organise a few days at Baystay to relax, enjoy the delightful ambience, and rest after a long, demanding driving tour of the rest of New Zealand. The hot tub on the balcony is the best place possible to unwind and rest after a long day's drive up the North Island! We just couldn't be more comfortable, welcomed, and pleased to be back here.

The decor is modern, restrained, and very comfortable - the big living-room has everything you could want for entertainment, and there's free wifi as well. There's airconditioning in all rooms, although in hot weather, once the sun has moved around the house, the best place to be is sitting out on the balcony at the back. There's always a delicious cool breeze!

If you're childfree and looking for a quietly luxurious place to stay a scant five minutes' drive from Paihia, this would be ideal.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms, and they're all very comfortable and beautifully fitted-out, but the...

Baystay is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed here for 6 nights and a great time. It is close to Paihia. Nick and Rob are very hospitable and nice guys to talk to. Their help with excursions and places to eat are very good. The bereakfasts are lovely as well.
The views from the B&B are gorgeous.

Room Tip: We had the River view room, which is probably the best.
