#2 of 52 B&Bs / Inns in Nelson
Retiro Park Lodge offers friendly, personalyzed, memorable accommodation in an oasis of quiet country luxury: Surrounded by an extensive garden, in a 90-acre park-like property, nestled amongst hills and sitting along the river in beautiful Teal Valley, but minutes away from Nelson City’s bustle. The property rears Llamas and Alpacas that roam freely in the paddocks surrounding the lodge and also has its own producing vineyard, olive and almond groves. Our Bed and Breakfast is a destination on its own and the perfect base to explore the region’s most sought after attractions: it is within easy reach for day excursions from “The Abel Tasman”, “Kahurangi” and “Nelson Lakes” National Parks and “The Marlborough Sounds” and its wine growing region.

We are impressed with the amenities, hospitality and tranquility provided by Robert and Victor at Retiro Park. For a break away from a busy city lifestyle this rural retreat and garden was perfect. The little cottage has stacks of ambiance and your comfort is assured. The hosts are fun and so charming ! A truly unique setting and delightful hospitality awaits you and we highly recommend.

I thoroughly recommend Retiro Park Lodge. We have had 5 nights here and it is without doubt the best B&B we have ever stayed. The breakfasts have been superb and our hosts Robert and Victor are lovely. They have treated us as family and will remain friends well into the future. The accommodation is great and the gardens superb. We will hopefully return in the future

We stayed with Robert and Victor on their magnificent property over the weekend. Based on previous reviews our stay was everything we had hoped for and more. Good taste rules supreme here and the entire property is skillfully designed and maintained to yield an atmosphere that is more likely to be found in France or Italy. We read, had great conversations with our host and sat in the balmy mid summer sun by the pool. A true break away from our busy world. Thanks Robert and Victor we hope to stay again.

One night, quite late arrival and on the way too early! We really did not stay long enough at this wonderful and stunningly beautiful accommodation. The grounds, from the time you enter the property are manicured and beautiful. The location is rural, a short, and well worth the effort, drive from Nelson. Ponies and alpaca graze the paddocks. A small, perfect vineyard is a short stroll, a bottle of their Rose' was included and much appreciated and a lovely pool area is there to enjoy. The accommodation is spacious, spotlessly clean and included everything to make us, as quests, comfortable. The hosts are friendly, entertaining and passionate about providing the very best for travelers. Breakfast, prepared by Victor, was delicious and hearty and Roberts conversation and information was much enjoyed. We will be back when next in Nelson and would highly recommend Retiro Park Lodge for anyone wishing to stay in the area.

We only stayed one night on our way through Nelson. That was a mistake as we did not take full advantage of the lodge and all that it offers. Robert and Victor were excellent hosts. We stayed in the barn, a roomy self-contained building close to the house. It was warm and quiet and well equipped. We enjoyed a walk through the farm visiting miniature horses, and alpaca. It was an easy drive into Nelson for dinner. We were served a splendid breakfast (cooked by ‘the staff’ (Victor!)) with great variety of offerings. After breakfast and great conversation with them both (sometimes with both at the same time!) Victor showed us his own wine making system which uses their own grapes. We sampled some of his wine and were very impressed! We would love to stay again if in the area.
