Needing a break from a hectic start to the year, we had a great 5 day stay at the Longhouse B and B. Large private and comfortable room with excellent breakfasts. Friendly and informative hosts were most welcoming. This B and B was a great starting point for visits to Keri Keri, Russell just a short ferry ride away, Cape...

We spent 3 nights at Longhouse in January 2017 but wished we had booked for more! What a lovely place and hosts John & Mike really understand how to run a great B & B. A delightful Queen room, terrific breakfast on the deck and brilliantly helpful hosts. Professional but informal - just superb! Many thanks. Robert & Tom

We absolutely loved our 5 night stay at Longhouse B and B. John and Mike were the perfect hosts and looked after us so well. We had five fantastic breakfasts and 2 excellent evening meals with them.

We stayed for 3 nights and used this as a base for our weekend in the Bay of Islands. It is a few minutes drive outside Paihia in a peaceful setting overlooking forest. So you get the benefit of being near Paihia, but with the benefit of somewhere very relaxing to stay. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean and very...

The Princess Room is a smaller room and is a shared bathroom with one other room and this has direct access on to the main deck. Delicious Full English or Continental Breakfasts are included in all of the room prices. Dinner is also available by prior arrangement.
