Amazing hosts. I had a 10 min play being performed in Whangarei which was the reason for our visit. That was 2 years ago, so the fact I have still wanted to leave a review should speak volumes! The hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. We even had a lovely cup of tea and home made biscuits offered to us...

Our hosts were so nice to us during our stay. Tim drove us around town to the Town Basin and then to an area where there was a great view of the city. The room was nice and was located in a seperate part of the house with a private bathroom. Breakfast was superb and highly recommend Empty Nest!

Tim and Jane are great hosts, apart from being really nice people. I stayed over for two nights and the room was private and cozy. They tried very hard to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I really enjoyed talking to them and learning about Whangarei, and also got good recommendations on things to do around. Also, got to...

We had a very enjoyable stay for one night only, and were very well looked after, by our friendly hosts, who cooked us a lovely breakfast, and we would definitely recommend a stay at Empty Nest, if you are looking for a cosy place for the night.

We so appreciate guests reviewing our B&B. We try hard to make guests at home with us and we appear to have achieved that on this occasion. Thank you for taking the time to review the Empty Nest B&B here in sunny Whangarei.

De room was comfortable and clean. But especially the hosts made my stay at this bed and breakfast more than just a bed to sleep in. Although the visitor has its own room and a loungeroom for visitors there is the possibility of contact with the hosts. They make you feel at home. I liked it.

Really a warm and helpfull man (did not meet the women, since she was out of town). When we arrived there was tea and coffee. Even after we just met 5 minutes, he already brought us to a track by car. The house is absolutely lovely. Great beds, nice bathroom and delicious breakfast! You can even bake your own pizza...
