Dan and Natasha could not have made us feel more welcome, thank you. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The breakfast looked and tasted delicious. Great location with stunning views and the icing on the cake was the private jacuzzi! We will be back!

Cannot recommend this place enough, it was absolute luxury in the most beautiful of settings. Given the extremely affordable price we paid we had a decadent room with its own decking and hot tub over looking the bay. The room had all the amenities we could require and more and was very well maintained and presented, we also had our...

After falling in love with the photos online, I contacted the hosts who went out of their way to accommodate us. It didn't disappoint! The room, was fantastic. Very clean, comfortable and had all the facilities you could ask for. The shower was amazing. The spa was such a treat, especially after a day out on the water. The breakfast...

My husband and I enjoyed our two night stopover here, with Dan and Natasha providing a wonderful B&B experience. One feature of the design of this establishment is the privacy, with the three guests suites all arranged to have their own entrance. We enjoyed everything about the comfort and room amenities, as well as the recommendations for dining out, and...

Stayed here for three nights on a sojourn to Bay of Islands. Run by passionate musicians Natasha and Dan who, by their warm welcome, are just the icing on a first class establishment. Very comfortable bed, great pillows, beaut shower, great breakfasts on the balcony and a ten minute downhill walk to decent restaurants. "Al Fresco" is a must in...

Tarlton's Lodge was the first place my wife and I stayed in New Zealand for our honeymoon. Since we were traveling by bus for this leg of our trip, Natasha, one of the hosts, offered to pick us up directly from the bus stop, and Dan, the other hosts, offered us a ride a few other times during our stay....

We (My boyfriend & I) just stayed here for 2 nights over Easter. Natasha & Dan lovely and welcoming, with great service. Amazing breakfast served to our room both mornings. The room was perfect! Everything was lovely, clean, fresh. Having our own private access to the room made it feel extra secluded too. The spa was great, the view out...

Very nice place to stay, silent place to stay on the top of a hill. A short walk to town centre where you can eat very well. The hosts Dan and Natasha are lovely and have a good service. They make your stay comfortable. Nothing is too much for them. The view from the room is stunning. The spa is...

Paihia’s most spectacular sea & island views await your discovery at Tarlton’s Lodge. All our luxury B&B rooms have their own entrances, decks, spa pools & parking space. 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.
