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.

Both Di and Ray were welcoming, and they really made me feel as though I was someone they already knew. The place was clean and uncluttered, and tastefully decorated. I stayed there for one night only, and I wish I was staying longer. I highly recommend this place, and will return here if I ever visit Whangarei again.

We stayed for one night in February and Di and Ray made us feel very welcome with home made cake, tea & coffee when we arrived on a very wet and windy afternoon. Our room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The whole house was well maintained and was well located to access all the local amenities. A short walk... More

My wife and I stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Di and Ray were great hosts and made us feel at home. Whangarei was a surprise too and we enjoyed the walk into town to sample the cafes and restaurants. Next time we're back in town we'll certainly book our accomodation at Chelsea House

We stayed for one night on the way back to Auckland airport. A beautiful old period building with excellent hosts who made us feel at home. The room was very nice, the bathroom a little small. If it's an overnight, we'd recommend it

My husband had set up 2 nights for us and another couple for our first 2 nights in NZ. All four of us loved our visit to Chelsea House.
