My stay in Paihia was made that much more enjoyable because of my time at Bay of Islands Lodge. I had been to a few accommodations on my trip and none made me feel as welcomed with a feeling of belonging. If I get the chance to visit Paihia again, I will be fortunate to stay at this Lodge once more. Google review.

Great location close to beach and restaurants. Owners very friendly and helpful. Clean, unpretentious, with all facilities as advertised. If you want 5 star luxury go elsewhere. If you want simple, friendly, convenient for self-catering or eating out, and good value book here. Google review.
