On a motoring tour of New Zealand in April, we headed north of Auckland to the Bay of Islands for a couple of days. We decided to stay in Paihia, as it was a convenient base from which to cover this most scenic of areas, such as Russell and Waitaki. We chose to stay at the Swiss Chalet Lodge Motel. Booking in for 2 nights to a front facing room overlooking the Bay, we found this Lodge to be very comfortable, spotlessly clean, well appointed and excellent value for the quality it offered. Run by charming and very helpful proprietors, we had a good range of restaurants nearby, within a short walk. One restaurant deserving a mention, was the one on the pier, offering lovely fresh seafood reasonably priced.
