What a view! We stayed at Allegra House in the top bedroom and it provided a fantastic view! Brita and Heinz were so friendly and helpful. The bedroom was very modern and clean and the breakfasts were delicious. Thanks so much - we had a fantastic stay in Paihia. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

If you are going to stay at the Allegra then i would suggest staying in the Top rooms as the scenery from your balcony is breathtaking.
Heinz & Brita are great hosts and you feel very welcomed into their family home.
Heinz was very informative about where to go and how to get there and nothing was too much trouble.
He cooked breakfst in the mornings which set you up for the day.
If you are planning on staying in Paihia then this B&B would be difficult to beat.

We had a fantastic view over the bay.The hosts were great. The only tricky bit was the climb up the hill. but the view made it all worth it. It was a very special place to stay.

Ahh! Allegra House. 2 nights stay was not enough. Beautiful views over the Bay of Islands from our room and private balcony. Excellent hosts, Brita and Heinz could not do enough. Delicious healthy breakfast, booked our cruise around the islands and recommended great local seafood restaurants. Thank you for a wonderful stay at a reasonable price.

There were magnificent unrestricted views of the Bay of Islands from our rooms and the balcony outside, and from Allegra it is just a short downhill walk to the centre of Paihia for the shops, restaurants and trips out into the Bay. The penalty paid for the view is that it is a stiff walk home after any trip out.

Our hosts were attentive to our every need and the rooms are particularly comfortable. Appetising breakfasts arrive on trays and all that remains to do is to put the bread in the toaster and pour out the coffee.

What a place to relax in, we booked the Top Floor Suite for 5 nights, the views over the Bay of Islands were incredible, we could lay in bed & look out thru the panoramic windows, the roof terrace afforded even greater scope- Breakfast was a real treat on the balcony with other guests, homemade bread was simply delicious- Hosts were very helpful, we booked several trips including Game fishing, trip to Cape Rienga, The Cream run cruise, Waitangi treaty grounds - also visited the delightfull village of Russell by the frequent ferry , what a delightful place , good restuarants & a very quit time could be had there. The only negative was that to get such great views you had to realise that there was quite a climb to the accomodation, dining out each night , was a steady walk down the steep hill & a $5 taxi back up !!- we really loved this place , good to catch ones breath & recharge the batteries after about 6 weeks of travel

Allegra House, 39 Bayview Road, Paihia, is situated high above the town providing fantastic views across the bay. It is run by Swiss chef Heinz Marti and his wife Brita and the accomodation is of an exceptionally high standard. They were happy to show me all the accomodation on offer which includes a two bedroom apartment and other bed and breakfast rooms all with en suite facilities and air conditioning. Nothing was too much trouble for the Martis; Heinz happily drove guests and luggage without cars down to the coach stop when departing. Breakfasts consisted of a wide choice of fresh fruit, cheeses, cold meats, eggs, cereals, tea, coffee and toast. It would be diificult to improve on either the facilities or the hospitality provided by Heinz and Brita.
