A great welcome from Lynn & Roger, at Marlin House, even though we and two other couples arrived mid-afternoon at exactly the same time! Large 'colonial' style building set up hillside with timber balconies around offering superb views of Paihia Bay. Car parking on raised deck immediately outside B&B. Large well furnished accommodation (Green Room), including facilities - dining table, fridge, microwave, etc - for dining in, should one wish. Large bathroom with view over bay. Weather permitted us to join other guests on large veranda, facing rising sun, to enjoy continental/cooked breakfast, again with view over bay. Stayed 3 nights and breakfast varied each day - not your 'run of the mill' bacon & eggs! Thought, detailed preparation and attractive presentation goes in to what is served. Delicious! Lynn & Roger are attentive hosts, without being intrusive, keen for guests to enjoy their stay.
