We only stayed one night. On arrival Ray was very welcoming. You were made to feel at home. Enjoyed our relaxing drink and chat, before going out for dinner. Amazing accommodation, comfortable beds, lovely owners, yummy breakfast. We will be back. Thank you

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

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 to local restaurants and drive to the local waterfall.
Di and Ray were very knowledgeable on local walks.
Breakfast was well presented and more than we had expected and set us up for the long drive we had that day.
We would definitely recommend Chelsea House to our friends and family and any one who may read this review.
Just as a side note we had read other reviews which mentioned a busy road. Our room overlooked the road and we can honestly say that we never noticed this fact at all.

We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The room was cosy and clean, and the hosts really make you feel home. Very nice breakfast as well. Go there and you will not be disapointed.

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
