If you are visiting Paihia this is the only place to stay if you want first class service and facilities. Inge is an excellent hostess and her breakfasts are divine - fresh fruit salad, yogurts, home baked bread and rolls, cooked breakfast, cheese, toast and coffee. Her breakfast table was stunningly laid out and facing the Bay of Islands. Our...

Great location and fantastic views over the bay. Inge is one in a million. A wonderful host who has thought of everything. We stayed in the top floor suite which was beautifully appointed. Many of the reviews rave about the breakfasts - they are truly out of this world! Better than you'd find at many high end hotels. Paihia is...

Chalet Romantica sits above the town with a lovely view of the town and water. It is very easy to walk to the local shops and restaurants. Inge is a wonderful, warm inn keeper who made sure everything was spotless and perfect. Our room had everything from make up removers wipes to nail polish remover to some soap to do...

As others have noted,Inge is a gracious and welcoming host. Our room had a wonderful view of Paihia Harbor and was well equipped. There are personal touches everywhere that made it a memorable stay.

Beautiful Paihia was made even better by Inge, our host. We felt like being at home (we stayed in the Romantika Suite). Inge gave me a jar of coffee for the room as I drink a lot of coffee which is just one of the little touches which makes it so special to stay here. Magnificent breakfast which caters to...

Inge is the perfect host, friendly, welcoming, nothing is too much effort and everywhere there are little touches that separate Chalet Romantica from the rest. A perfect place fo a couples escape. The breakfast room is something to behold. Possibly the best of many, many b&bs we've stayed in.

Delightful hostess Inge (Swiss flag flies outside the B&B) spares no trouble to ensure guests enjoy their stay. Breakfasts were beautifully presented and included fresh fruit, home-made yogurt, fruit puree, granola, cereals etc. Cooked breakfasts were prepared to a high standard. Our room was immaculate with safe, fridge/mini-bar, and balcony with amazing view. Paihia as a place offers a number...
