“Excellent Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Loved staying here during our trip round New Zealand, we could not have been made more welcome by Phil and Wendy. Spectacular views and beautiful rooms. A perfect ending to a perfect holiday, so much so that we stayed 3 nights.
Thanks Phil and Wendy and we wish you a prosperous 2012.

Steve and Angela, Thurso, Scotland.

I stayed just one night but it was exceedingly pleasant. The modern, nicely decorated room overlooked the pool and the trees below. The house is perched high up on a hill and I enjoyed the walk down into the town and back. It was just the right distance away from the town center-far enough to be quiet but close enough to quickly walk or drive in. Phil was very welcoming and the breakfast was very nice.

We had three nights at the B&B and can only say it was a total pleasure. Phil and Wendy made us feel welcome and comfortable with nothing to much trouble. The quality of the accommodation combined with relaxed atomsphere and outstanding views make this a must stay place.
This must be the only place to stay in Paihia if you want the best.

Room Tip: Upstairs give the best views

Although i was only in Paihia for one night (but wish it had been longer after experiencing this little paradise) i have to say that The Decks Of Paihia B&B would have to be one of the Bay Of Islands little hidden treaures that should not be missed by anyone visiting this part of New Zealand - The Bay Of Islands.
From the minute you arrive, the warm friendly welcome you receive from owners Wendy and Phil makes their strong customer service skills evident and their willingness to make your stay as enjoyable as possible their top priority obvious.
This B&B along with offering great service to guests also boasts the beautiful setting, immaculate grounds and peaceful surroundings to go with it.
One thing i really enjoyed during my stay was the relaxed atmosphere of the property, the room was spacious and had its own ensuite and it overlooked the pool and garden area.
It was nice to meet the other guests (from all walks of life) staying at the B&B over breakfast the following morning, the breakfast choice was amazing, Phil had made fresh bread and muffins that morning to serve and Wendy had her famous homemade muesli on offer and yoghurt, yum, there was also homemade preserves that both Phil and Wendy take pleasure in making for their guests to enjoy.
Its the little touches that make this B&B special and i really hope to come back to stay in the not too distant future to experience it all over again.

Not only is Paihia a beautiful place to begin with but on top of that has an amazing B&B tucked away with a fantastic view. The B&B was like staying in a 5 star hotel, rooms great but even better than that were the hosts, Wendy and Phil. Both very kind, caring and made you feel very welcome. They looked after you so well and helped you out in anyway possible! Plus i must admit Wendy has a hidden talent as a chef, lovely meals. Thank you both very much for a relaxing weekend :-) Great experience and will definitely come and stay again!!!

Room Tip: Any room, all beautiful and comfortable!

First time for us in NZ and Phil and Wendy were brilliant hosts. They went out of their way to accomodate our needs (one of our party on a strict gluten free diet) even recommending and booking excellent trips for us.

We felt truly welcomed - Phil and Wendy embody the welcoming Kiwi spirit.

I would stay again at the Decks of Paihia in a heartbeat.

We came to Decks of Paihia for a weekend break away from the city and found an amazing place to escape to and we will most certainly be back. Phil and Wendy are the most fantastic hosts and very much part of the experience. We were made to feel totally welcome in their home from the moment we arrived. The house is so well designed you feel that you very much have your own space without the sense of intrusion. The breakfasts were tremendous and made even better by the hosts great sense of fun. They obviously enjoy sharig their home with their guests and nothing is too much trouble. Plenty of well informed free advice on local sights and activities. The location is quiet, central and panoramic. A short walk has you in the village centre in no time.
