Lovely and comfortable room with a wonderful view across the bay of islands Good hosts and breakfast laid outside your room every morning. Good walk along coast down to pahlia or we were offered a lift one morning as we were running late for a trip Nothing too much trouble.

We stayed here 2 nights. The view of the bay is fantastic. The owners are very hospitable with good suggestions on local restaurants. If you stay you must order the continental breakfast that is served on your patio and has the most variety of fruit we have ever received with a continental breakfast! Great coffee too! Enjoyed the hot tub...

We stayed in Tarltons Lodge for 3 nights. Having visited Paihia before we were keen to stay somewhere with a view and this place really is as good as it gets! Stunning views from the rooms, beautiful sunrises and far reaching across the bay. The hosts are lovely and very knowledgeable in the area, without being pushy in any way....

We absolutely loved our stay with Natasha, Peter, and Catalina. This Bnb is run by a local family, and they are absolutely lovely! We wish we had more time to get to know them better. They epitomize the meaning of hospitality and kindness. We stayed here for our honeymoon, and were provided the ideal combination of attention and privacy. The...

Very kind and welcoming hosts who would get out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Clean, quality furniture and bedsheets, comfy bed, great view from the room and an amazing spa, possibly the best place to stay in Paihia.

Apart from the fantastic friendly accommodation and sensational view, a hidden gem is the Paihia Opua walkway which winds itself around the coast for a great 2 hour walk. It starts just 10minutes from Tarlton's. In summary the location, view and hospitality rates Tarltons as the best accommodation available.

I have stayed in many AirBnbs before and Tarlton's Lodge was definitely the best. The room was spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The view was amazing and what's great is it offers something different throughout the day. My boyfriend and I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated after our stay!

We arrived at Tarltons Lodge soon after arriving in New Zealand. What an introduction. Our hosts Peter and Katalina couldn't have been nicer, nor more helpful. They suggested good things for us to do and see based on weather and our personal preferences. We took the Ferry over to Russell one day and walked the town, over the saddle to...

Each room is designed & furnished to the highest standard with leather armchairs you can really relax in & enjoy the fabulous views. Every morning(weather permitting) I will cook you a wonderful breakfast & serve it to you on your own deck. Each day I service your room & replenish your fridge with fresh milk. After you return from an adventurous day relax in your own spa pool looking out over the Bay of Islands. I have lots of local knowledge about the area & the tours as well.
