We absolutely loved our stay here, continental breakfast at its best, home made bread yummy and very welcoming hosts, close to all the amenities. Very quiet area even though it's right in town. Thanks Kevin and Lois. No hesitation to stay again.

Taiparoro House is one of those places where you book quickly and when you arrive you can't believe your luck. It's a great old house that has been brilliantly renovated to be modern, stylish and light filled. Just a really great atmosphere, with a lovely dining area and a large glass conservatory area. We arrived in a fluster needing a... More

We wish we had stayed longer in this lovely B&B but we had already booked to move on. Lovely, hospitable and helpful hosts, who provided a very comfortable room to stay and a delicious continental breakfast . It was so relaxing sitting around the large table in the morning enjoying the breakfast along with the other guests from overseas .

What a fantastic old and historic house! Very comfortable accommodation in a great location, walking distance to center of town, restaurants and attractions. Our hosts provided exceptionally prepared rooms, a delicious and well provisioned breakfast and interesting discussion over the breakfast table with them and other guests. Definitely recommend to others.

It was a happy chance that took us to this delightful old house and home. The decor and furnishings are to the highest standard and the welcome very warm. Breakfast was outside on the porch overlooking their beautiful garden. We also had a lot of help in finding a solution to the travelling problem that had brought us there in... More

Just stayed one night as in the double deluxe room. Quiet, no road noise and comfortable room. Would have been good to have a fan/ ceiling fan in the room as was a muggy warm night. Hosts were very welcoming and we enjoyed a lovely relaxed breakfast on the patio. Really neat house that has been restored to a high... More

My wife and I stay here for two nights. Unfortunately we had terrible weather while there, so we spent quite a bit of time indoors. Our Hosts Kevin and Lois helped us make the best of it... You'll go along way to find a better B&B

I enjoyed my brief stay here. It is extremely close to the city and an easy stroll to dinner. The hosts were lovely and had a good chat over breakfast even though they had a full house. The home made bread has that 5% magic and was a great start to the day. Nice touches. The room i was in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Taiparoro House is a boutique-style private guesthouse located in the heart of Tauranga city, an easy ten minute walk from the city centre. Overlooking Tauranga harbour, in a quiet residential street, it is one of the few remaining heritage properties in the Tauranga area. Taiparoro was built in 1882 in a traditional Victorian villa style and is a Category II heritage listed building with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Over the years Taiparoro has been lovingly maintained, and restored. It has been specifically designed as guest accommodation with five bedrooms including a harbour view suite, all with ensuite bathrooms, and although it still maintains many of its beautiful period features, it has been updated to a high standard with a more modern contemporary theme and furnishings. ... more   less
