We were met by Di and made very welcome and shown to our luxurious room. Great facilities and very comfortable bed. Double opening french doors led onto the verandah, where we enjoyed our dinner and surprising quite with a fair amount of traffic on the road outside. A scrumptious breakfast was awaiting in the morning after a nice walk in... More

We booked this B&B last minute as a stop-over between Auckland and Bay of Islands. It was a fantastic call. Do and Ray were so lovely and accommodating. They are genuinely friendly, helpful and caring. We only booked the room 2 hours before arriving on Bookings.com, yet they were both so supportive and helpful even though they weren't expecting us.... More

Beautiful house and gardens, and lovely big rooms. The room with the balcony is very special although can be a little noisy. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts however were disappointing for that level of B and B.

Our stay was only for one night but Chelsea House was just what we needed after a long day at work in Auckland and coach up to Whangarei. Had a comfortable nights sleep and an excellent breakfast in the morning. Di and Ray made us feel very welcome in their home and I would definately stay again or recommend it... More

I can not add to the positive comments about this B&B. We stayed here on our way to Cape Reinga. We had a nice happy hour on the veranda and in the morning we had some toast and cereal before leaving. I must not foget to mention our wonderful chat with the owners during breakfast.

We chose Chelsea House for it's historic appeal, but also found the hosts to be very gracious and welcoming. Everything was very cozy and inviting and we truly enjoyed getting to know Ray and his "helper", Anne (as his wife was attending to family matters elsewhere). They were very helpful with restaurants and things to do in the area. The... More

Very welcoming hosts, and lovely home, which is cosy and well cared for. Delicious breakfast was waiting for us when we returned from our morning walk up the beautiful bush covered Mt Parihaka which is very close by. Thank you Di and Ray for the hospitality. Bev and Neil

We really enjoyed our stay, we so appreciated the wonderful hospitality that we were shown. Nothing seemed too much trouble, and all the little extras were most appreciated. And to top it all off the bed was really comfortable. If/ when we return to Whangerei we would not hesitate to stay again. Thanks Jenny and Max Cambridge NZ.
