This B&B has to be the best we've stayed in visiting New Zealand over the past 25 years. Luxurious, beautifully located on the Waitangi river, magnificent in the cottage and of course Ashley & Colleen (very nice people who had enormous knowledge of the Bay of Islands). The cottage was outstanding with a balcony for tea, coffee, evening drinks and watching the sunsets. As well, NZ wine and beer were already in the room. Will recommend Appledore to anyone travelling to NZ just for the experience.

A beautiful b&b in a stunning location along the Waitangi river. Delicious breakfast, gracious and helpful hosts and very comfortable lodgings. It was the perfect place to begin our NZ vacation. Ashley and Coleen were so helpful suggesting activities, making various reservations for us, and even picked us up from the airport.

It was great fun to meet you all and I am so pleased that you took up our offer of free airport transfers which must be a great help when landing in a new country. Enjoy the rest of your travels and let us know about the wedding!! Kind regards, Colleen and Ashley

We arrived at Appledore Lodge for our last 3 days of a 5 weeks journey. We have seen in the meantime many really beautiful B&B's, but this one was the top. Not only is the Lodge located at a stunning point alongside the Waitangi river, also Colleen and Ashley the hosts are fantastic. They prepare a fabulous breakfast combined with a view over the river which is addictive. Next to that, both Colleen and Ashley are great company and it is a pleasure to sit and enjoy their conversation. Both of you, many thanks for a perfect stay at a beautiful place.

We spent 4 nights at Appledore Lodge with our 5 star hosts Ashley and Coleen at the start of our New Zealand trip. The stay was one of the best we had during our trip, not just because of the Bay of Islands, the setting is stunning looking out on the Waitangi River, but the love, care and attention to every detail is amazing. The room had all we could need, including some very nice NZ wine and beer. The breakfasts really set you up for the day and the availability of ‘platters’ if you just wanted to enjoy a quiet night in we’re an option we enjoyed. Our hosts offered information on things to do in the vicinity and helped with forward planning the continuation of our holiday. Stunning!

We stayed there for two nights for a full day visit of the bay of islands. Even though Appledore Lodge is a short distance away from that we very much enjoyed the beautiful quiet surrounding next to a little river and the warm hospitality of our hosts Colleen and Ashley.

I am so glad that you had such a lovely time up here in the Bay of Islands. Yes, we are a 7 minute drive from the waterfront, which has all the water sports and cafes etc in Paihia. All of the tour operators provide a free transport service should you wish to have a car free day! Kind regards, Colleen and Ashley
