Reviewed January 16, 2014

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend one night at the Chelsea B&B. Di and Ray were able to offer us great advice on sights around the local area as well a Auckland. The room was lovely and very clean and comfortable. Thank you!

My family of 4 (2 adults, a 6 and an 8 year old) stayed at Chelsea House in December 2013 and had a great stay. Ray and Di were great hosts and were quite happy to give us advice on what to do in the area and were very welcoming for us and our 2 children. The rooms were very roomy but still felt cozy somehow. The beds were comfy and breakfast was great. Thanks again Ray and Di!

Thank you Chris for taking the time to post your great review. It was so nice to have your family stay with us and interesting for us to learn about where you live. I trust the remainder of you trip was fun and the children enjoyed their NZ experience.

This is a lovely B&B with warm hosts. The look and feel of the place is more impressive in person than we thought from the photos. We were greeted with afternoon tea on the verandah off our room. The road is busy but we are not bothered by road noise. My companion's shower was cut short when the hot water ran out. The continental breakfast was excellent. Overall, great value for money.

Thank you Sophie for taking the time to write such a nice review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. I am very sorry your partner experienced a problem with the hot water. This should no happen as the hot water is an instant, constant supply not from a hot water cylinder. This is something we will have to have remedied now you have bought it to our attention.

Wonderful place to stay. Ray and Di are very hospitable. The rooms and amenities are beautiful. It's the type of accommodation that you feel very sorry to leave. Thanks so much for our welcome and great stay.

Room Tip: We had the Queen room with verandah - it was beautiful.

Di and Ray are great hosts! We felt like family right away. Came our to greet us when we arrived offering to help with the bags. The little extras that count! The room was very comfortable with lots of space for our large bags.

We got valuable site seeing info and enjoyed the quarry garden and the water falls.

We were invited to sit with Di & Ray during dinner ( we had a little wine, cheese and crackers) and chatted for an extended period of time. Ray being a golf Pro even took me into the back yard for a couple of much needed tips! Thanks Ray!

Road noise for light sleepers might be a bit of an issue in the front bedroom but the hospitality and great food at breakfast more than compensate.

I would sincerely recommend staying at Chelsea House.

This was our second stay at the Chelsea House Bed and breakfast and it was as elegant and welcoming as I had remembered. My two daughters came with us this time and really enjoyed meeting Ray and Di. Di was so kind and shared her recipes for yoghurt and meusli with the girls allowing them to have a go at cooking themselves.
Di and Ray provide the perfect balance of being great hosts whilst at the same time allowing you to potter peacefully in their very pretty gardens.

Hi guys, What a delightful review! We so appreciate you taking the time and effort to write this - thank you. It was wonderful to have you stay again and so nice to meet the girls this time, hope they get the chance to make and enjoy their own muesli. Have woken to another beautiful sunny day again today and looking forward to a great summer. Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy & Healthy New Year.

We crashed in on these guys with no warning leaving Ray to fend for us as Di was out ... Tremendous attitude as he provided a friendly service with a lovely social atmosphere with other guests for our one night here. Lovely breakfast thanks Di. Our only complaint would be the squeaky bed in our room. But great night thanks again.
