Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had booked two nights in a couple of suites well in advance for a bit of luxury at the end of our cycle tour. Sadly, we were in for a disappointment. When we arrived we were shown to a couple of rooms that did not match our expectations. When we questioned this, and showed our confirmed email bookings, it became apparent that that a large oversight had occurred, as the suites originally confirmed were now long term occupancies. We had not been advised of this. Now, we understand completely the impact that COVID has had on businesses like this and the need for guaranteed cashflow, and sympathise, however the net result of the mismanagement was extreme disappointment for us. The owner apologised profusely, and kindly gave us a bottle of wine, however the standard of the rooms on offer was way below our expectations, and were really only very average motel rooms in an adjoining cottage. We stayed one night as it was too late to make alternative arrangements, and left the next morning. We accept the response of the owner under the circumstances, but do suggest you thoroughly check before making any booking.

We are very sorry that we were only able to offer you 2 of our smaller (significantly cheaper) rooms at that time. We appreciate you booked very far in advance had requested 2 of our large upstairs suites. This was a clear oversight on our behalf and we apologize again for this. Nick Ferrier, Owner

Beatuful architecture - such a great credit to Nick and Jenny who restored such a historical place. We stayed two nights in the garden room. As soon as we arrived you could feel the history of the place and imagine the great parties that would have been had there over a 100 years ago. When we arrived Shannon, who was helping look after the place, met us and was very friendly and helpful advising us of activities. We took the advice and did a lovely river walk to the River Cafe and visited the botanical gardens - both recommended. The information pack in the room was also very helpful, it was an easy walk to a very good craft been pub on trafalgar street - The free house pub - and then a very nice Indian across the road. The location was superb - quiet but close to town. Very relaxing - would definitely stay there again.

Beutiful period Hotel & family home. Nick and Jenny very welcoming & erudite hosts along with their knowledgeable , friendly daughters. Delicious cooked daily breakfast with a variety of options , set to classical music in the ball room. The Suite bathroom spacious & delightful. The Walk along the bubbling brook to Town centre & various public parks such easy access. The mature trees & beautiful walks an unexpected bonus. Great fun for family time & restful relaxation.

Warwick house is a beautiful old Nelson property in a picturesque and quiet location not far from the town center and its amenities (and the center of NZ). The dinning hall was previously a sizable dance room and has large windows overlooking the surroundings, a wonderful view when having breakfast. Food was excellent, prepared by our hostess, a trained cordon blue cook. Access to our room was direct from the front garden, and just a few yards from the dinning hall. Room was basic but comfortable and spacious with on-suit facilities. I wish we could have stayed there longer.

Many thanks for the kind review. As our client base have been 95% from overseas, this has been a difficult time. We are only able to offer limited rooms at present but do enjoy hosting appreciative Kiwi guests. Thank you for booking directly with us - that is always much appreciated Kind regards Nick and Jenny

After a very warm and friendly welcome we were shown to our room. We stayed for two nights and I felt our experience would have been better if we had stayed in a different room. We were in one of two rooms on the lower ground floor underneath the breakfast room. The plumbing noise from the next door room was very loud as the occupants showered very late in the evening then at 6 am the following morning water noise from the loo etc woke us up. We could also hear chairs being dragged across the floor upstairs. Coffee and tea making facilities were shared with the other room and were located in the hallway outside, a washing machine was there also but this was out of order.

Responded 13 Mar 2020
Hi, Thanks for the comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Very sorry to hear that you had noisy neighbours in the room next door. Your smaller room and the one larger next door to it are frequently used by families or couples traveling together, which is why the kitchenette facilities are shared. We have a plumber coming to look at options regarding the bathroom of the larger suite. There are 7 rooms at Warwick House and this is the only case where a bathroom from 1 suite shares a wall with the bedroom of another room. We will certainly put a sign in that room asking guests to be considerate with using the bathroom during night time. Thank you for letting us know. We hope the rest of your NZ trip is successful. Nick and Jenny Ferrier

We had booked two rooms and were given a wonderful large apartment with two en-suite bedrooms, lounge and kitchen area. The building is amazing, full of charm and character. The manager/cook was wonderful, suggesting places to visit and eat, and provided an excellent breakfast in the grand ballroom. Overall, a lovely place to stay.

A gracious home with unique rooms--we had the Tower Suite, which had a nice room (in the tower) for watching television. There was a shower as well as a soaker tub, which was nice. Breakfasts were plentiful and served in a large ballroom. Marcelene couldn't have been nicer--from her warm and smiling greeting, to helping with luggage (many stairs to contend with), to recommending and booking tours, she was our most efficient guide to getting around Nelson. (Note: we had no rental car, and buses are scarce at best). Warwick House is located about fifteen minutes' walk from the center of town. You can amble along a stream, or head down a nearby street, but remember that coming home, you'll be walking a little uphill. It's not strenuous at all, but those with mobility issues will need to consider this as well as mentioning this when booking a room. It was nice to arrive at the house after a day of sightseeing to have a glass of wine on the upstairs deck; there are also many seating areas in the garden. A shared refrigerator is provided for the three rooms upstairs, as well as a toaster and microwave. If venturing out early on a tour, just tell the hosts and they'll prepare a tray of cold breakfast for you. Warwick House is quiet and for those who love older homes, a wonderful place to stay. Marcelene made it that much better and we couldn't be more grateful.

Enjoyed two wonderful evenings at Warwick House. Very quaint and comfortable room. Felt like a castle staying in the tower. Excellent breakfast in the dining room. Hostess, Marcelene was so warm and welcoming. Also provided us with a lot of information about the house, area and drive; including confirmations with our tours booked. Highly recommend this great house, room and exceptional host.

Mid 1800s house with later additions decorated and furnished in keeping. Car parking. Manager/Receptionist/cook/waitress/travel guide is a very helpful lady! Nothing is too much trouble and she is a mine of information and suggestions for visits. Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.

We stayed for two nights in this fantastic old house with a lot of atmosphere from the old Victorian days. Marceliene gave us a very warm welcome and helped us in her professional and efficient way to correct our wrong booked tour. Took her some time with many phone calls which we apreciated a lot. Thank you Marceliene!
