Longhouse Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 20 Paihia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Longhouse is a beautiful and clean B&B in Paihia. John and Mike are very friendly hosts and John's breakfast is amazing, especially his homemade muesli.
You will find all amanities, you need and can relax on a sunny deck outside.

We were made to feel welcome from the start - a beer and a glass of wine helped! The room was large and the bed comfortable. If the weather had been kinder we would have made more use of the deck. The breakfasts were delicious and substantial. What really made the difference though was the way that John and Mike wanted us to enjoy our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them - John even e us into Paihia to catch a cruise so that we could leave our car with our luggage in it at the Longhouse. I would thoroughly recommend the Longhouse and I am sure we will be back there next time we go to New Zealand.

Between Paihia and Haruru falls, a secluded peaceful place to stay. Spotless super comfy room, stunning sleep quality, this place is definitely a good choice. Mike will do anything to put you at ease and help you to sort what to visit in the region. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Visiting the Longhouse was a wonderful experience. I was only there for a night, but I just loved the deck and the view of the tea-tree, with the smell of the ocean not too far away. The reason for my visit was unusual, but it involved meeting up with friends and what was wonderful about Longhouse was the amazing dinner that John prepared for us. I came home to Australia determined to make my own pate, John told us it is easy, but I haven't made it yet - that's the thing about the kind of hospitality that chefs can provide, they make the food look so easy and taste delicious.

The rooms are great, the deck is a fabulous place to sit and reflect on all the wonderful sights the Bay of Islands has to offer, and chat with great hosts and new friends, John and Mike, as well as having a wonderful dinner with my old friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Longhouse B&B, appreciated the good design and attention to details and comfortable bed :-) Also, breakfast from chef John was a delight - he is a former chef and knows his cooking! Everything is modern and clean, nestled in a rural setting and lovely view of the forest. Just a few minutes by car from the beach and Paihia. I appreciated John´s warmhearted hospitality and he also provided a lot of good information about the area. I can most certainly recommend staying here - and look forward to returning myself!

Great location with a lovely friendly atmosphere. We stayed for two nights in this beautiful area, had gorgeous weather and stayed in a lovely modernised B&B with very friendly hosts. The breakfast provided was wonderful setting us all up for a local hike and shopping afterwards. The room was clean, modern and the shower amazing on a chilly morning. We will certainly be staying here everytime we visit the area from now on.

Room Tip: The King size is separate from the main house and lovely, modern, clean and large. This is the only...
