Baystay B&B
Ranked #9 of 20 Paihia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 January 2012

This was my first visit to New Zealand. I arrived in Auckland, and stayed there for two rather ordinary, albeit acceptable, nights' B&B before driving up to Paihia, which my daugher had told me I must visit. She was right: the Bay of Islands is indeed stunning. But what made the trip for me was Baystay B&B. Nic and Rob could not have been more welcoming.They treat you like one of the family, and the facilities are second to none at a very reasonable price. A gorgeous bedroom with en suite, thoughtful and interesting breakfasts, a jacuzzi pool and pinball, with views to die for. I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks, both. John. UK.

The room was superb, the bed very comfortable and the breakfasts excellent. Nic and Rob were very friendly and have lots of local knowledge which was very helpful. The river walk from Haruru Falls to Waitangi is well worth doing, finishing up at ship come cafe just across the bridge. Good food at a reasonable price. Wendy & Ian, Oz.

Room Tip: Riverview room is worth the extra for the view.

Having landed in Auckland that morning and after the 4 hour drive, our welcome at Baystay couldn't have been better. Nic and Rob made us feel right at home. Our room was super with a great view over the valley. Breakfast was excellent and the room most comfortable. We stayed three nights in October 2011 and were delighted with everything. We can most certainly recommend Baystay as a great base from which to experience the wonderful Bay of Islands area. It was a great start to our 3 week tour of NZ.

This almost hidden pearl of a B&B was a great surprice. Apart from a fantastic hospitality from Nic and Rob, the rooms were very tasteful and the breakfast delicius enjoied with the other guests. The outlook was splendid. We felt very comfortable.

Stayed 2 nights and were upgraded to the room overlooking verandah & hot-tub (thanks). Nick & Rob were attentive hosts with an obvious interest in providing a great stay for guests. Very comfortable room and communal lounge. Breakfast was excellent. Location a little out of Paihia but that was a benefit given the good views and peaceful location.
