My wife and I recently stayed at Tarlton's Lodge for 2 nights during a driving holiday of north NZ. The pictures did not do the view justice - Absolutely amazing. The room was everything one would expect for a luxury stay. Natasha was our host whilst her parents were away and really made us feel right at home. The breakfasts are just as stunning and enjoyed on the patio overlooking the Bay. Natasha suggested a couple of restaurants which also didn't disappoint. Of all the places we stayed in NZ Tarlton's Lodge is the one that stood out. Thanks again Natasha.

Highly recommend Tarltons Lodge. We arrived late and were very kindly greeted by Peter who showed us to our room. Absolutely no complaints about the room, clean, immaculate, comfortable bed, everything was perfect. Not to mention the spa!!! Beautiful!! and the view is amazing. Then we were provided a yummy breakfast! Recommend the french toast! Thanks very much for making our stay awesome!

We were looking for a nice quiet, quality restful location to spend a night in Paihia for our wedding anniversary. The room looked beautiful on the website and it did not disappoint. Private spa on our private balcony with magnificent view over the Bay of Islands. Luxurious bedding. Soft fluffy bath towels and a dream shower. Every little nicety you could ask for including large complimentary fresh fruit bowl. Friendly hosts who delivered a delicious breakfast to our room. Looking forward to another visit in the near future!

We’ve just spent three days at Tarlton’s and leave refreshed and ready to re-engage with life in “the big smoke”. Our hosts were welcoming and remained attentive and generous throughout our stay. The bed was comfortable, and the breakfasts served on our private balcony were marvellous - beautifully fresh ingredients, generous portions. And what a setting, a tranquil water view, NZ bush in the foreground, birdsong to bookend the day...just idyllic.

Stayed 3 nights in February of this year. Great and very clean apartment with it’s own outside space and hot tub, with an amazing view. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection of freshly made food that you selected on a daily basis. I am not the most talkative person in the morning (!) so the fact that breakfast was served on your private veranda at a time of your choice allowed me to indulge my anti-social preferences at that time of the day. My husband thought the french toast was so good that he had it 2 days in a row. Peter and Katalina who own Tarlton’s Lodge could not have been more gracious hosts. They were extremely helpful and friendly with lots of good suggestions and we were particularly grateful that despite having turned up ludicrously early before offical check in time as we had just driven up from Auckland airport having flown in from the UK that morning, they went out of their way to get our room serviced first so we could come back soon afterwards and have a shower! If you are visting Paihia/Bay of Islands I would recommend staying here.
