This is the best combination of room and view we have stayed in in New Zealand. Hosts very friendly and accommodating. Excellent breakfast service. Great location. On a hill so not for the unfit but not too strenuous. Paihia has plenty of amenities. Good touring base for north of North Island

This B&B is in a great location, only a short walk to the resort centre's shops, restaurants, and ferry wharf. Our host is a real gentleman who made every effort to ensure we had a comfortable stay and also gave us lots of information about the area. Breakfasts were sumptuous and came with stunning views over the bay to Russell....

Marlin House is centrally located and the room features impressive water views. The room and all facilities were excellent and it was a very pleasant place to stay and relax. A very short walk to the water where the restaurants and shops are located

“I had a Kingfish Suite, for two People, two-Night Stay. It was a basic room with a huge bed, lounge area, tv, ensuite and dining table with sink and microwave. I was shown a bigger room with more options which could cater for a bigger group of people, like family of friends. That room included a Spa.”
