“Hospitality at its best .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We have just returned to Australia after spending 2 weeks in NZ spending the majoirty of our time in B& B's .
We decided to try B& B's this trip because hotel rooms( with T.V's the centre piece of furniture) cold and boring .
Chalet Romantica was a delight , we stayed in the attic room which even had a microwave and fridge ( not all B&B's do ) . The view was stunning, the bed very large and even Inge's choice of toiletries luxurious.
We took advantage of the spa and pool ,after filling our days with activities suggested by Inge.
The breakfast spread had a touch of class full of fresh produce including the honey made from their own bees .
It was slightly over our initial budget but we both agreed worth every cent .

Room Tip: The attic room I think is the largest the roof line has character but it does have a few steep step...

This was our first time in NZ and whilst visiting Paihia we had booked to stay at Chalet Romantica. We have not been fans of B&B's in the past but, if every B&B was run by Inge we would not stay anywhere else. Inge and her husband Eddie are the perfect hosts. They are so friendly, happy to book excursions, restaurants, make local recommendations (they are also very knowledgeable about the rest of NZ) and they really make you feel welcome into their home. We had arrived on Valentines Day and, shortly after arriving Inge brought us two glasses of champagne which we thought was a very nice gesture. We had the Bellavista Room which was lovely (provided with robes & slippers) with a balcony (sofa, 2 chairs and a table) that had a wonderful view over the Paihia bay and russell in the distance. The private bathroom (large shower, modern bathroom & lovely toiletries) was across a private hallway so this isn't an issue. The breakfast was the best we have ever had, so much choice - catering for all tastes. My husband particularly liked Inge's poached eggs (I should have asked her for a cooking lesson)! We didn't use the spa facilities during our stay as we were only there for 2 nights (unfortunately) but they looked very good. Sufficient parking for all guests and free wi-fi. We would like to return to NZ in the future and, when we do, will will definitely book to stay here again. Highly recommended.

Thank you Inge & Eddie - Christine & Colin.

This was the first stop on our N.Z. trip and it was wonderful. Ed and Inge are so friendly and helpful, booking trips, dining reservations and offering information. Our room was comfortable, spotless with plenty of closet space and gorgeous view. There was a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities, so you could have an early morning brew and go take a walk or exercise to work up an appetite for the meal you wouldn't want to miss. Breakfast was a feast!! The location was just a short walk from numerous restaurants, on Marsden Road which follows the coastline. We enjoyed everything about our 4 night stay, and although never had time to use the spa, it looked very inviting.

this place has it all. Location, comfort, views and even goats in the back paddock. The owners are present and very helpful with suggestions, local knowledge and even booking tours for me. Breakfast caters for every taste. Nothing better than a swim and relax in the spa at the end of a long day. I will return.

We stayed two nights and wished we had booked longer. We stayed in the Romantica Suite which is the top of the house. We cannot fault the service and overall experience. The web site is quite accurate but I don't think it shows the hammock that I enjoyed one afternoon. The lounge is most comfortable and the whole place is well furnished. The breakfast table is a picture and the food is just superb. The host is a delight and so helpful. In our trip round both islands we stayed in many good places thanks to Tripadvisor but this was easily the best B and B. The view is wonderful.

We just spent six nights at the Chalet Romantica. Our booking was originally for three nights, but it was so perfect that we extended it. The rooms were so well appointed, everything you could possibly need and all with a superb view over the Bay. Breakfast was a highlight; fruit, yoghurt, cereals, cooked breakfast, freshly baked bread, croissants.
Our hosts, Inga and Eddie, booked our trips and were able to suggest various walks and places to visit. This really is a superb place to stay
