Mark and John are wonderful hosts at this gorgeous Nelson B&B. Nothing is too much trouble and there are lots of unexpected extras. Breakfast was lovely in a beautiful table setting. Rooms are quirky and comfortable with lovely garden outlook. Only a short walk to local restaurants in town. We stayed 3 nights before Abel Tasman walk and returned for one more night after walk. Will be back. Bonus lovely little dog Bella. Highly recommend.

Property's Favourite Review
Ah house is such a lovely place. We felt very welcome and would have loved to stay longer. We really enjoyed having a glass of wine on the patio in the evenings and of course the delicious breakfast prepared according to our wishes every morning. Also all the travel advice and assistance were highly appreciated. Strongly recommended - we might even consider returning to Nelson just to be able to stay here again!

This place is all you want and more. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable it’s set in a great place near the centre of town with the most beautiful grounds. Breakfast was the best, we felt thoroughly spoilt! The hosts were extremely kind and were very attentive to every need while we were there. I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough!

Haven’t been back to Nelson fo some 2.5 years but after our last stay decided there would likely be nowhere better so booked to stay again.....very glad we did. Excellent experience all round in terms of dealing with hosts, comfort and cleanliness of the accommodation and the quality of the breakfast. If ever we return to Nelson....guess what, .....probably no better place to stay so will no doubt re book.
