“Put Chalet Romantica at the top of your list !”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

From the moment we arrived until the time we departed we were made feel very welcome by Inga. We stayed for 2 nights in the upstairs apartment. The bed was very comfortable and there was a separate lounge with a kitchenette. A private balcony was the perfect setting to watch the afternoon sunset.The room was well equipped with good quality furnishings, linen etc Internet connection was good and breakfast was very comprehensive and delicious,with the view over the bay as an added bonus..Inga gave us recommendations for some day tours as well as the best places to dine. My wife was not feeling well and inga gave her some Chamomile tea and home made biscuits ...she is a very caring and sincere host.
Put Chalet Romantica at the top of your list !

Room Tip: Stay in the upstairs apartment with seaview

We stayed two nights withe Inge and Ed and we enjoyed the warm and friendly atmosphere during our visit. The wonderfull view over the bay, the confortable room, the perfectly arranged delicious breakfast and Inges assistance in booking events and reservations. A reason to remember and to come back.

I spend a very enjoyable time here, although our stay was short it was made memorable by the attention to detail of our hosts ( that would put many 5 star hotels to shame), a delicious breakfast and a great view.

To top it all the proprietor gave us excellent tips about how to spend our very short time in the area, her insight made our visit much more rewarding.

I don not remember all the facilities in the room, there is a kitchen which certainly had a microwave, kettle and a fridge, so I am pretty certain you can cook there if needed and there seems to be laundry facilities available for a very reasonable fee (as read in the chalet's brochure since I didn't use them: there is a communal washing machine and dryer whose use is very reasonably priced).

Free internet (within reason) is also available.

Overall a very nice place, ideal to explore what this part of NZ has to offer.

My housband and I spent 2 nights in this gorgeous B&B.

The house is beautiful and very big. Our room was the one at the top floor and it is huge! It has all the comfort we could desire, and a wonderful view on the bay.
The owner (Inge & Ed) are very friendly and nice.
Breakfast is generous and varied and it is served in a beautiful veranda overlooking the bay.

Simply lovely

Room Tip: The room at the top floor is amazing

We only spent one night at the Chalet, and I would be very suprised if there is a better host, or a better bed, or a better breakfast in Paihia.The late night spa was a real treat,huge private pool,underwater lights, & tons of bubbles. Breakfast to die for.
Inge is a gem & a joy to stay with. Everything so neat & clean, just wonderfull, simply the BEST.

Room Tip: We found the Bellavista room perfect.

My wife and I had a wonderful three day stay. The host were very accommodating, the breakfast was delicious and views were beautiful. Inge assisted us in bookings, places to eat and sites to visit. Our only regrets were we could not stay longer and had to leave early in the morning to return to Auckland thus missing breakfast although Inge packed us a breakfast to go the night before.

Wonderful place and hosts. Peace and quiet, beauty of the Bay of Islands, Paihia.

Great breakfasts, well-furnished rooms, comfy beds.
Walking distance to the town centre/shops if that's your thing, yet away from that for serenity.
