Great location as a base to explore Paihia, Waitangi and the Bay of Islands, excellent, spotless accommodation in a scenic location, and extremely helpful hosts,who even gave us lifts when our car broke down! Great home made breakfasts, too.

The iSite in Paihia offered this place and we really enjoyed our stay with Mike and John. They were wonderful hosts, very kind and always helpful. Our room in this almost brand-new home was very clean, we even had our own veranda. The breakfast was excellent. Go there, you'll never regret ! Thanks, Mike and John !

Thank you for your review, and we were so glad that the I-Site booked you in to stay with us. We are happy that you enjoyed your own veranda area where you were able to chill out after your days outings. Hope the rest of your trip went well in NZ, and it was great to talk with people who were in the same line of business as Mike.

We rolled into a bustling Paihia without a place to stay and Longhouse was one of the offerings at iSite. Great choice! Mike and John were excellent, welcoming hosts with a big, comfortable king bed and a quiet balcony to watch the stars. They had good recommendations for things to do, offered good company if we wanted it, and we did enoy a glass of wine with them at night and an amazing home cooked high street restaurant quality breakfast in the morning on great English china. As we pulled out after breakfast, both hosts were there to wave us on our way. A most delightful stay - highly recommended.

Excellent B&B with terrific hosts John & Mike. Superb room (King), wonderful and spotless facilities run by a couple who are ever willing to ensure a memorable stay. Food was outstanding (both the breakfasts and BBQ) and our visit to the area became more of a stay with good friends. Our one regret, both for the B&B and Bay of Islands, was that we didn't have the opportunity to stay longer. WIll definitely stay here again when we visit next and thoroughly recommend it to others!

Room Tip: For space the King room cannot be beaten, although the Queen room is also very spacious.

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.
