Reviewed March 21, 2014

We spent 3 nights here at Chalet Romantica and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Inge and Eddie.

Our suite was all we could have wished for with a great lounge/ dining area and a lovely bedroom both with great views over Paihia. Bathroom toiletries were very good and a decent size unlike many of the guest houses we have stayed during our trip.

We couldn't have wished for a more attentive host in Inge. Nothing was too much trouble from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. She assisted us in booking all our trips and restaurants and went above and beyond in sending me to e doctor as I had not felt myself for a few days.

Breakfast was beautifully laid out with a spectacular view of the bay and beautiful fruit, cereals, yogurt and breads. Although I didn't have the appetite for the cooked part, my husband certainly did and thoroughly enjoyed.

Thank you Inge for all your help and see you next time.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights at the end of a five week tour of New Zealand. The location is amazing, the hosts are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet with nothing to much trouble. The breakfast that Inga prepares every day is by far the best we had in NZ and the room we had was beautiful. Inga will recommend trips , restaurants and will arrange all bookings for you. This stay completely made our visit and finished of our trip just perfectly and I would not hesitate in recommending this as one of the best places to stay in NZ.

What a B&B and we didn't the best rooms. A great welcome from Inge and a stunning room with views over the wooded valley at the back. Breakfast is utterly historic with stunning views. You just need to be reasonably fit to get back to the top of the hill after a night out in Paihia.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter - they are all lovely

We drove from Auckland to Pahia in the rain, it was our first time driving on the left-hand side of the road - nerve wracking! Inge was there to greet us and went to great lengths to make us feel comfortable, help us with our next day flight seeing trip and give us information about the area and where we might like to eat. She was most helpful the entire time we stayed in the area, even offering us rides to the dock. However, the location was such that we were able to leave our car and walk everywhere. The final climb to the chalet is steep, but easily doable. We had the top floor room which had a beautiful view of the bay and was quite comfortable. The only negative was the low ceiling in the bathroom, but, after realizing the need to be cautious it was part of the charm! The breakfasts were delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented. There is a Large Swiss flag that makes it easy to find your way back to the chalet! This was the first B&B of our trip and it set the tone for a wonderful holiday in NZ.

Room Tip: I didn't see the other three rooms, but the top room was very comfortable and had a great view w...

This is a very very special place to stay. Romantic, comfortable, very friendly...It is a 10 all the way. Very clean with everything you may need during your stay. This was one of the highlight of our trip to New Zealand. It will be good memories to share with friends and family.

Room Tip: Convenient, within walking distance of bay of islands

Outstanding hosts!!!! Ed and Inge were so welcoming and helpful. This was our first experience in a B&B and it was exceptional, from heated towel racks to beautiful hand creams, It really topped off our holiday. Breakfast was amazing!! Set in absolute paradise and we loved spending our evenings on the deck drinking wine and eating great local cheese. We would highly recommend this stay to anyone.

Like most places in New Zealand, Chalet Romantica is approached up a slope like a set of bedroom steps! Good for 4-wheel drives! But, that slope gives it a great view over Paihia and the Bay of Islands. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast is good, and generous. the most memorable thing about the place is Inge, the host. She is very hospitable, friendly, garrulous to a fault, and knowledgeable about Paihia and NZ in general. A great place from which to see the Bay of Islands.

Many thanks for your comments. We are happy that you had a great time and you enjoyed our hospitality & wonderful views. Like yourself almost all our guests arrive by normal vehicle and during their stay either use their car or walk to dinner or places of interest. We think that we are easily accessible and a 4- wheel drive is definitely not necessary when staying with us.
