Lovely place to stay. Central to the city as well as the highway going north. Welcomed by our hosts whose hospitality really enhanced our stay. Room was spacious and very comfortable and nice to have a heater put on to make sure the room was cosy warm. Liked the addition of free wifi -- too many times a chargeable item... More

We stayed for three nights at this B & B and really enjoyed the friendly welcome and feeling as if we were part of the family.

We spent two nights with Di and Ray. The rooms were nicely decorated, the breakfast was just right and we felt very comfortable. We drove from Auckland to the Chelsea House B&B in Whangarei on Hwy 1. As visitors, we assumed we would pay the toll fee at the toll booth, but upon arrival to Di and Ray's B&B, we... More

We stayed three nights with Di and Ray. We had a pleasant stay,they were sociable and attentive hosts. House and the room we stayed in was very clean, road noise was not a problem and the room had good heavy curtains which keep the room dark. The bed took a bit to adjust to as it was a bit hard...

Attractive property with a comfy bed and thoughtful hosts - although on a biusy street it was quiet at night. Thanks Di for the suggestion to visit the Quarry Garden, a must for those who like transformed spaces and thanks to Ray for the car wash after our dusty travels!

We stayed with Di & Ray from 12/2/15 - 14/2/15. We were welcomed with tea and yummy fruit cake. The room was well equipped and very spacious. I felt the sheets and they felt so silky, I loved them! The bed was comfortable and the curtains blocked out the light which enabled a good nights sleep. Ray & Di were... 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
