We were so pleased we booked at Longhouse B&B for our short visit to Piahia and The Bay of Islands. The room was great, we chose the King/Twin. It was spotlessly clean and, for us, the bed was very comfortable. Our host, John, is a qualified chef so breakfasts were really good and if the offer is made to enjoy... More

If you are visiting the Bay of Islands this is a perfect stay. Just outside Paihia near Haruru Falls it is in a quiet position. John and Mike are very hospitable hosts-nothing is too much trouble. Our party of 4 stayed in the King and Queen rooms which were spacious and spotlessly clean. There was an enormous selection for breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed here over queen's birthday weekend and had a very enjoyable stay. John the host was very welcoming and a great breakfast chef. The room itself was very well presented right down to the crisp white linen. Highly recommended.

For a B&B picked with the digital equivalent of a pin, we struck lucky. The longhouse is just that - it runs along the quiet roadside at the top of a steep hill up from the main road and all rooms looks out over the valley. Though as the main road is at the bottom of the valley, the road... More

We had a very friendly welcome from John. He has very informative about absolutely everything. He helped us with information about the Bay of Islands boat tours, Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where to park in town, and restaurant options. We were upgraded to their larger room which was a nice surprise.

Longhouse B & B is tucked up in the bush in Paihia. Gorgeous views. We were greeted by Talita, John and Mike's adorable long haired dachshund.

Mike and John were wonderful hosts. We really felt like we were sharing their home. Evenings spent reading on their sunny deck,easy access to Waitingi Treaty Ground, Paihia and Russell, without having to endure the hustle and bustle, and fabulous breakfasts, all contributed to a very relaxed stay. What more could one want. Thank you both enormously.
