Natasha, our host was fantastic, telling about a restaurant that would drive us back home after our meal, providing us with... More

This is the type of accommodation that might require Trip Advisor to create a new category... ELITE, a step up from Excellent. Limited to say 1-2 % of accommodation that is available.

Paihia’s most spectacular sea & island views await your discovery at Tarlton’s Lodge. All our luxury B&B rooms have their own entrances, decks, spa pools & parking space. Each room is designed & furnished to the highest standard with leather armchairs you can really relax in & enjoy the fabulous views. Every morning(weather permitting) I will cook you a wonderful breakfast & serve it to you on your own deck. Each day I service your room & replenish your fridge with fresh milk. After you return from an adventurous day relax in your own spa pool looking out over the Bay of Islands. I have lots of local knowledge about the area & the tours as well.
