Jennie and Tony were incredibly welcoming and we settled quickly in to the most well-appointed room and comfortable bed on our two week vacation. There was on-site parking and plenty of space to spread out and get reorganized at this halfway point on our journey. Jennie was friendly and helpful in many things, including snagging a last minute dinner reservation at the best restaurant in town. She reached out to us weeks before our visit to inquire about our plans and offer suggestions for must-see sights. There were fresh baked cookies on hand, and delicious breakfast cooked to order each morning. Highly recommended!

Hi, R & P,
Thanks for choosing to stay with us, not long before NZ was to go into lockdown and for such an awesome review - to learn that we were your favourite stay is really special.
It was a treat to get to know you both and have time to sit and chat over a cuppa or breakfast.
Every Friday as I sit down to watch Call the Midwife it reminds me of sharing that time with you too.
All the very best and stay safe.
Jennie and Tony

Everything about the Chelsea House B&B was perfect during our stay - the host was so friendly and helpful that we instantly felt at home.
The room was very lovely as well as the whole building!
Breakfast was delicious and miles ahead of anything you usually get in B&Bs (even if they are good), it felt more like a sunday morning with food prepared by a loving family member.
Another plus: there‘s a variety of peaceful bushwalks (the only place where I met people was a lookout) just across the street in case you don’t want to go back to the car after a long drive.

We had an excellent time at Chelsea House. Jennie & Tony are fantastic hosts. The house was beautiful, we had a lovely room. We felt so welcome at there place. There was a delicious breakfast in the morning and there were nice tea facilities with homemade bananabread (so yummy)!! They gave great tips for restaurants, activities etc . We could ask for anything!
For everybody who wants to visit Whangarei and needs a place to stay, we would highly recommend Chelsea House!! :-)

Chelsea House B&B offers more than just historic villa with 12-feet ceilings, great accommodations, hospitality, and good cooked breakfast. Jennie is a seasoned travel professional, and her recommendations on what to see on the North and South Islands were invaluable, especially the advice to visit "stunning beaches" (they are stunning, indeed!!) on the East Coast of the North Island. Both Jennie and Tony are very friendly hosts, and it's my pleasure to recommend their old/new villa.

You were great guests and we enjoyed our chat we other you both over breakfast.
We hope you trip up to Cape Reinga and down 90 mile beach went well.
I hope you are enjoying Christmas and both wish you all the best in 2020.

Chelsea House set the standards very high for the rest of our accommodations in New Zealand. Jennie and Tony made us feel instantly comfortable in their lovely home. Jennie went above and beyond in assisting us with places to visit and with items left behind. The river walk nearby is beautiful and the Whanarei Falls are spectacular. The breakfasts were delicious and the location is perfect for exploring this area.

Room tip: Our room at the front of the house was quiet and the bed was very comfortable.

Hi Barb,
It was a pleasure getting to know you all on your recent trip to NZ.
It's been great keeping in touch and hearing how the rest of your holiday around both North and South Islands went.
No doubt you will be wishing you were back here, while we enjoy the summer and you are experiencing snow.
Keep in touch & Have a very Merry Christmas and fabulous 2020.
Cheers
Jennie and Tony
