This was our first time in NZ and whilst visiting Paihia we had booked to stay at Chalet Romantica. We have not been fans of B&B's in the past but, if every B&B was run by Inge we would not stay anywhere else. Inge and her husband Eddie are the perfect hosts. They are so friendly, happy to book excursions, restaurants, make local recommendations (they are also very knowledgeable about the rest of NZ) and they really make you feel welcome into their home. We had arrived on Valentines Day and, shortly after arriving Inge brought us two glasses of champagne which we thought was a very nice gesture. We had the Bellavista Room which was lovely (provided with robes & slippers) with a balcony (sofa, 2 chairs and a table) that had a wonderful view over the Paihia bay and russell in the distance. The private bathroom (large shower, modern bathroom & lovely toiletries) was across a private hallway so this isn't an issue. The breakfast was the best we have ever had, so much choice - catering for all tastes. My husband particularly liked Inge's poached eggs (I should have asked her for a cooking lesson)! We didn't use the spa facilities during our stay as we were only there for 2 nights (unfortunately) but they looked very good. Sufficient parking for all guests and free wi-fi. We would like to return to NZ in the future and, when we do, will will definitely book to stay here again. Highly recommended.
Thank you Inge & Eddie - Christine & Colin.
