Our stay at Tarltons in early February was beyond excellent. Peter and Katalina are most welcoming and were very helpful in recommending restaurants, activities and even assisted us to arrange a needed medical visit. Our room was spotless, comfortable and spacious with lovely linens. We enjoyed Katalina's excellent breakfasts each morning on our patio that has an exceptional view of...

Location, location, location....... The Tarlton's Lodge is high on a hill covered in exotic gardens overlooking the water. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, and the view is spectacular. Peter and Katalina are exceptional hosts that will ensure your stay in the Bay of Islands is great experience.

My wife and I stayed at Tarlton's Lodge for 3 nights and it was absolutely wonderful. Peter and Katalina are very friendly and helpful with a lot of good tips on what to do in Paihia.

We began our 3 1/2 week driving tour with a 3 night stay at Tarlton's Lodge. As soon as we pulled in, Peter was right there to greet us.

Following a flight delay in Hong Kong and an enforced stopover, we had to shift our plans a little and for our middle night stayed here at the last minute over a holiday weekend in NZ.

An amazing place to stay in Paihia with a great view of the Bay from your room. A nice small BnB with a private hot tub, amazing breakfast and the most welcoming hosts. Do book your stay here in advance as there are only 3 rooms and good places in Paihia fill up quickly in the summer.

If you combine the luxury of a 5-star hotel room, with the friendly, personal service of a Bed & Breakfast, you get Tarlton's Lodge. It feels like someone has chopped three rooms out of a Shangri-La /Four Seasons hotel and plonked them down on a Paihia hillside. And then found the most welcoming hosts, Peter and Katalina, to make you...

We came here for our 1st wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place. Welcoming, friendly and knowledgable owners. Nice room with an amazing view and private spa too was a nice touch not to mention breakfast delivered every morning. Perfect place for a couples getaway. Wouldn't stay anywhere else here now.
