“Just Like Home”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Right from the knock on the door, we were instantly made feel welcome. Staying at Chelsea B&B is just like visiting family. A beautiful home, comfortable bed, LARGE TV, self serve tea and coffee and yummy home made cookies! Only 2mins drive into town for dinner, and a cooked breakfast to look forward to after a peaceful night's sleep. We will definitely stay here next time in Whangerei. Thanks Di and Ray!

Ray and Diane were wonderful hosts- interesting to speak with and most helpful, ready to offer advice on activities, restaurants and shopping as well as assistance with arrangements. Our room was lovely--spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious right down to the homemade jams. Though not in the middle of town, it was very conveniently located within walking distance of a few nice restaurants, a grocery store, and scenic walking/light hiking trails including a waterfall and canopy walk. Wish we had more time there, highly recommend!

If you like B&B's you must stay here. Fantastic welcoming couple, both with tremendous energy, knowledge and experience of all things local and around NZ. Nice big light and airy room, good breakfast, nothing was too much trouble. Really a great 2 night stay.

Although we only stayed one night we wish we could have stayed longer as the room, breakfast and our hosts were all that good !

The accommodation was impeccable, absolutely spotless and beautifully maintained. A very elegant room that was a very comfortable size for a couple. We did not find road noise to be intrusive as their home is not located on a main road.

The continental breakfast was excellent with a lovely selection of fruit, cereals, toast, drinks and juice.

Di and Ray were perfect hosts. We hope to be back this way again sometime as during our, so far, 3 weeks of B&Bs around NZ, this remains our favorite !

So much nicer than a motel, every effort was made to make our stay relaxed and comfortable. Rooms were clean and a good size, our bed was supremely comfortable. Di and Ray made our family ( including 2 boys) very welcome. The ensuite was a little small but fine for a short stay, our only disappointment was the road noise which for some would not be a problem we are not used to it and it disturbed us during the night.

We only stayed one night but we had a very nice time, the place is really beautifull and Di & Ray are very kind persons.
Their welcome was very warm and we enjoyed having breakfast with them.
They are good advisors too, thanks to them we found the perfect spot on the beech to spend the new year's eve and we also enjoy the deck in front of our room where we can see the midnight fire works
We enjoyed our stay at their place and highly recommend it

di and ray are wonderful hosts and went way, way out of their way to welcome us and help us get started on our tour of new zealand. we are golfers and ray is a (semi-retired) golf pro who kindly watched golf on tv with us, talked golf with us over our evening meal together, and even gave us some pointers on playing their local mt. denby course. our room was at the front of the house, and though there is some traffic on the street, we never noticed it from inside the house. everything was spotless and tidy and fresh as sunshine. the day was fine when we arrived, so we had our welcome tea (and di's decadent chocolate biscuits) in the garden and somehow just started chatting away. in no time it felt that we had been friends for ages. we were only there for a few days, but thoroughly enjoyed the time with them and appreciated their introducing us to their part of the north island. we will just have to visit them again.
