“Fantastic location and relaxing stay.”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

What an amazing place. My girlfriend and I stayed here just after a new year. We dont normally stay in b and b's but due to the amount of them in the area we tried this one and we werent dissapointed. The rooms were detached from the house so you had your own space. Waking up to the view from river room was amazing in itself. Roger and Jan made us feel like we friends who had come to stay for a couple of days, going out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The only thing I could pick was that the traffic noise does get up a bit during the day but you cant hear anything at night. I guess it was also peak holiday season too. Location was great too. Far enough out but close enough to town. I high reccomend anyone to stay here!

Room Tip: Go for the river view room if you can get it.

We stayed in the Garden room for my wife's birthday visit to Paihia and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are very well appointed and Roger and Jan open their gorgeous home for a fantastic breakfast each morning and lovely chat. They are excellent hosts and could not do more to make us feel welcome and help point us to interesting local attractions. River Run is ideally suited to access Paihia or to head north and visit KeriKeri and beyond for day trips. We would certainly recommend this B&B for your next stay north.

Hi, just got back from a fantastic weekend in the BOI, great weather for labour weekend every day (for a change) and good cos' we were touring on motorbikes. Just wanted to put a word in for the accommodation that we stayed at which was River Run Retreat, absolutely great. They do have website but I can tell you that we (2 couples) loved the place it really is a bit of luxury and the hosts are really nice and friendly, couldn't do enough to help us. It's not in central Paihia, but not too far out, maybe 7 - 10 minutes, so tranquil too. We woke in the morning to the sounds of birds and the sheep from across the river, magic!!. If you're looking for a special spot to stay you won't go wrong with this place. The main house is seperate from the guest accommodation, but you go through a covered walkway to the house for breakfast, just in case the weather isn't great. Plenty of parking too
