Reviewed February 2, 2014

We stayed at Allegra house for four nights and found it a great location to take in all the Bay of Islands has to offer. Brita and Heinz are warm and welcoming and also very helpful and were happy to book our tours for us, even organising a 10% discount. They go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfasts on the deck exceded our expectations! We'd love to return one day and highly recommend Allegra house.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view, some are larger than others.

It was lovely to have you to stay and glad you enjoyed your time with us. Thanks too for the lovely photos you posted especially the nice one of the ferns on the track. It was interesting to talk with an expert about flowers and plants. We hope to see you again.

We stayed for six nights at Allegra House and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, the warm welcome from Brita and Heinz and the fabulous views overlooking the Bay of Islands.

The position of this lovely house is perfect as there is a short walk through the gardens, leading down to the town.

The room we had was just perfect and had absolutely everything we needed for a luxurious holiday at the end of our tour of NZ.

We found Paihia a perfect spot to stay as everything is to hand and we only used the car once as there was so much to see and do.

If we return to New Zealand this would be on our list of places to return to.

It was great to have you here to welcome the New Year with us and enjoy the fireworks from the balcony. We hope to see you again.

The view is amazing. From high up on the hill you can see the whole bay, relax on a terrace, and enjoy the visual splendor of Paihia. Heinz and Brita are fantastic hosts, and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. We started each day with bread that Heinz baked fresh himself, and while the croissants and multi-grain breads were great, the Sopf was almost too damn good to be believed.

Our room was quite nice and while it was convenient to breakfast and the main area of the house, it also felt private enough that we were able to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation.

It was great to have you with us as part of your honeymoon and glad you particularly enjoyed breakfast. It was nice to welcome the New Year in with you and hope 2014 will be a great year for you and thank you so much for posting a wonderful photo of the fireworks from our balcony. It was so nice to see the amazing coloured reflections in the water as well as spectacular fireworks.

A wonderful B&B in Paihia. The views are amazing, set high on a hill. The walk down to town is nice however it can be a long climb back up to the house after dinner! Brita and Heinz are excellent hosts and share lots of ideas and tips on the local area. Breakfast on the terrace was wonderful with fresh breads and fruits.

Having travelled up from Auckland, what a wonderful contrast! A wonderful B&B with a view to die for, and the most welcoming and helpful hosts you could wish for. The Breakfasts set you up for the day. We stayed for 3 nights and cannot fault it in any way. We were sorry to leave our amazing hosts Brita and Heinz.

Room Tip: A room on the second floor with a view over looking the Bay to wake up to

We have stayed for two nights with Brita and Heinz at Allegra House in Paihia. We had booked the lovely Top Suite for my birthday (very nice room with great bathroom and a kitchen and the most amazing view) and enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts very much. The breakfast was delicious and served on the terrace on both mornings as the weather was perfect. We especially enjoyed the fresh strawberries in November ;). We only wish we could have had a longer stay.

Room Tip: Go for the Top Suite, the view is amazing.
