“Relaxed weekend”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Di and Ray are friendly and accommodating hosts. Their house is a high-ceiling cosy and comfortable kauri villa with a cute brick tile garden at the front. The double room is an ensuite, large enough. Could do with a chest of drawers, commode or small type wardrobe though. Everything is spotless, the bed is perfect. Even though by the road, nights are quiet. Passing traffic during the day. Lovely walks just at hand.
Communication was also excellent all through the booking process (change in the dates).

My family and I stayed 1 night in July 2012 and would throughly recommend staying at Chelsea House.

Both Di and Ray were very friendly and genuinely interested in our NZ travels.

The breakfast was very good and the rooms were immaculately clean.

Their home is close to town and is opposite "the basin" making it a suitable location for scenic walks.

I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We visited off season and enjoyed the friendliness of our hosts, the romantic room in the victorian style cottage and the great breakfast in the morning. Ray organised a round of golf nearby and we can only recommend this outstanding B&B!

From the moment we walked in we felt right at home at Chelsea House. The ambience of the villa with its high ceilings and spacious rooms was matched by the cleanliness of the place and the quality bed so we could sleep soundly. Although these factors were important to us, what really made the most difference to our stay was the warmth of our welcome and the attention given to our needs. We quickly warmed to the friendliness of Ray & Di who went out of their way to make our stay a memorable experience. Their desire to be of help, coupled with their knowledge of the local area and tourist destinations ensured that our travel needs were fully met.
Breakfast was sumptious and there was a lot of choice to cater for different tastes. Di's homemade additions were all yummie - cakes, biscuits, jams and relishes. The breakfast setting is inviting with its open plan layout combining the kitchen and breakfast table. The chance to banter with other guests, and with the hosts while they provide your breakfast, was part of the experience we particularly enjoyed.
At the start or end of the day there is opportunity to sit in the gardens and enjoy the warmth of the Northland sun (even in June!) or to relax, sit and chat, read a book or watch TV on the big screen in the warmth of the lounge. The proximity of Chelsea House to the centre of Whangarei and many local attractions added further benefits.
We highly recommend a stay at Chelsea House especially if you want to enjoy the feeling of home comforts and feel like you have been pampered at the same time. Ray & Di, thanks for a great stay. We will be back.

This was our first trip to Whangarei and Di and Ray made it a great experience. The accommodation was spotless and beautifully decorated, the breakfasts were delicious and the hosts made us feel right at home and offered some great advice about the area. The location was also ideal and was just a few minutes' drive from all the main attractions. I thoroughly recommend Chelsea House and we will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Di and Ray are born hosts ,with a total commitment to their guests in their charming home.
We could not ask for a better place to stay and we would recommend them to any traveller who appreciates the importance of meeting genuine Kiwi hosts with the qualities of help and freindliness that epitomise yhe national character.

Di and Ray have a fantastic B&B that I personally like to recommend to all who traveling the Whangarai area. The room Dianne (DI) assigned me was large, with a private bath, a bay window to the street. The room was definitely what I needed, quiet. The B&B is located just minutes from the center of town. Di and Raymond (Ray) where great hosts, and it was a pleasure exchanging stories, talk politics, or just understand a bit more about New Zealand Culture. The breakfast, a continental style, was composed of coffee, juices, toast, jelly (home made.....MMM) and cereal.
I would definitely stay here again. Next time in the summer.........Joe. Thanks for making me feel at home.
