We spent a few days in the Whangarei area as part of our month long honeymoon and were so pleased with our choice of Abbey B&B. Barbara & John were very welcoming and helpful, the accommodations were clean and comfortable and the morning views of the rolling hills and mountains were outstanding. After the provided, self service breakfast of fruit,... More

We stayed here recently and had just the best time, wish we could have stayed longer!

The setting of this B&B is incredibly peaceful and beautiful - up on a hill away from everything. A car in not necessary, though, because John, with his Round Trip driving service, will pick you up and will drive you around to see the most unique and awesome nature at a very affordable rate. He is very knowledgable and customizes... More

We stayed only one night but were impressed by the level of accommodation and attention to detail. Friendly hosts, beautiful environment and excellent accommodation - what more could you ask for? Well, actually, other visitors had commented on the cat - but we missed out on that one!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Abbey B&B. Just 6 minutes drive from the Whangarei Town Basin marina, and a short walk from the Abbey Caves Reserve and the ancient kauri trees at AH Reed Reserve, we are also central to the magnificent beaches and bays of the world famous Tutukaka Coast and Whangarei Heads. Whether it be art galleries, craft markets, botanic gardens, museums, fishing or diving you will find it in Whangarei or its’ environs. Spend the day exploring the Whangarei area; then relax on the decks overlooking bush and farmland. Enjoy a glass of wine; admire the graceful harrier hawks as they ride the air currents above you. Your own entranceway leads to a queen bedroom with ensuite or a room with 2 generous single beds with adjacent bathroom. Make yourself a coffee in the kitchenette; watch Sky TV or use the wireless internet perhaps. ... more   less
