We stayed three nights with Di and Ray. We had a pleasant stay,they were sociable and attentive hosts. House and the room we stayed in was very clean, road noise was not a problem and the room had good heavy curtains which keep the room dark. The bed took a bit to adjust to as it was a bit hard...

Attractive property with a comfy bed and thoughtful hosts - although on a biusy street it was quiet at night. Thanks Di for the suggestion to visit the Quarry Garden, a must for those who like transformed spaces and thanks to Ray for the car wash after our dusty travels!

Thank you for taking the time to make this review we really do appreciate it and it was a pleasure having you stay with us. The Quarry Gardens is also one of my favourite places to visit here in Whangarei...it is getting really dry now so we need some rain to green it up a little. No trouble to give...

We stayed with Di & Ray from 12/2/15 - 14/2/15. We were welcomed with tea and yummy fruit cake. The room was well equipped and very spacious. I felt the sheets and they felt so silky, I loved them! The bed was comfortable and the curtains blocked out the light which enabled a good nights sleep. Ray & Di were...

We are a party of four 'young at hearts' and stayed at this lovely B & B while travelling on our trip around NZ. On arriving at this impressive, elegant property we received a great welcome from Di and Ray....plus a pot of tea and homemade cookies!

We were met by Di and made very welcome and shown to our luxurious room. Great facilities and very comfortable bed.

We booked this B&B last minute as a stop-over between Auckland and Bay of Islands. It was a fantastic call. Do and Ray were so lovely and accommodating. They are genuinely friendly, helpful and caring. We only booked the room 2 hours before arriving on Bookings.com, yet they were both so supportive and helpful even though they weren't expecting us....

Beautiful house and gardens, and lovely big rooms. The room with the balcony is very special although can be a little noisy. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts however were disappointing for that level of B and B.

I can not add to the positive comments about this B&B. We stayed here on our way to Cape Reinga. We had a nice happy hour on the veranda and in the morning we had some toast and cereal before leaving. I must not foget to mention our wonderful chat with the owners during breakfast.
