My husband and I stayed here over queen's birthday weekend and had a very enjoyable stay. John the host was very welcoming and a great breakfast chef. The room itself was very well presented right down to the crisp white linen. Highly recommended.

For a B&B picked with the digital equivalent of a pin, we struck lucky. The longhouse is just that - it runs along the quiet roadside at the top of a steep hill up from the main road and all rooms looks out over the valley. Though as the main road is at the bottom of the valley, the road... More

We had a very friendly welcome from John. He has very informative about absolutely everything. He helped us with information about the Bay of Islands boat tours, Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where to park in town, and restaurant options. We were upgraded to their larger room which was a nice surprise.

Longhouse B & B is tucked up in the bush in Paihia. Gorgeous views. We were greeted by Talita, John and Mike's adorable long haired dachshund. Barking her head off, but within the hour she was licking my face and on her back for a belly rub. We then met John and Mike and it was "like at first sight"!... More

Mike and John were wonderful hosts. We really felt like we were sharing their home. Evenings spent reading on their sunny deck,easy access to Waitingi Treaty Ground, Paihia and Russell, without having to endure the hustle and bustle, and fabulous breakfasts, all contributed to a very relaxed stay. What more could one want. Thank you both enormously.
