Tealmere Grove B&B
Ranked #14 of 29 Whangarei B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 February 2015

Anne and Harry have a large, tranquil home set among trees in a small gated grove at the end of a street just out of Whangarei. The neighbourhood is peaceful, pleasant and safe. The house is very clean and quiet - the room I was in was impeccable with an ensuite and tea and coffee making facilities. Anne and Harry were very helpful and accommodating and it was a pleasure to stay with them. Highly recommend for those who'd like a refreshing and calming retreat.

This is a B&B set in a small gated area, surrounded by large trees and bush and is very peaceful. The owners, Anna and Harry, are wonderful hosts and very genuine people, very helpful and willing to please. The apple pie we had read about is superb; there is a great variety of breakfast food. Above all the warmth of our hosts made us feel that we were truly leaving as friends.

Room Tip: Our room had lovely morning sunshine; the other room has a larger bed and would have afternoon sunsh...

There seem to be a broad range of high quality B&Bs for reasonable prices in Whangarei. We chose Tealmere Grove based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were very happy with this choice.
The B&B is located 3km out of Whangarei, close to Kiwi North. The neighbourhood is very quiet and looked well-to-do.

Anna and Harry are very hospitable hosts. We were welcomed with tea and cake before we even had a chance to bring the luggage to our room.
As we arrived around 6:30 pm they didn't expect us to show at all, but they were very relaxed about it. I got the impression that running the B&B is more a hobby than business for them (and a way to collect pocket money for the grandchildren).
Anna and Harry emigrated from the Netherlands in the 1980s and have lots of stories to tell. They like to chat with their guests (without being obtrusive!) and we felt very welcome.

The house is very big and every free corner is decorated with Anna's beautiful colourful acryl paintings. She is very modest about it (“Everybody in Whangarei is an artist. It is just a hobby, you know.”), but they are in fact really good! You could buy one as a very special and personal souvenir. The prices were very reasonable.

There are only 2 guest rooms. We were the only guests and stayed in room 1 which is decorated in red colours. The room is well lit and there is a bedside lamp for both persons. You have access to the gardens from the room. Nights were very quiet (aside from the big clock in the hallway).
The ensuite bathroom was quite spacious. There were 3 soft towels for every person and enough space on the washbasin.
There was a guest lounge with sofa, table, chairs, TV, free wifi etc. where we were served juice and cookies.

For breakfast there was tea, coffee and juice, cereals, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, toast, honey, jam, several cheeses (REAL cheese, not cheddar), original Dutch chocolate sprinkles and if you like them eggs.

You don't have to check out at a certain time, especially not when it is pouring.

Excellent service in a beautiful quiet location also close to the city centre and Barge park. Amazing laid out rooms and outside garden with sunbeds to relax on. Air hockey table to play on and wonderful nearby bush walks. A very large variety of delicious foods for breakfast! Overall an outstanding stay!!! Definitely be back! Thank you Anna and Harry!

Very welcoming & friendly host. Comfortable and quiet accommodation with Apple cake to die for! Plenty of space and lovely outlook in the bush setting but still close to amenities, cafe and shops. Happy to go back and stay another time.
