Lovely bright and airy home, excellent hosts, close to beach, shops, bus, and more. Angie and George are so very friendly and welcoming, and Coma, their adorable dog, is very calm and will greet you when you arrive. They remodeled this unique home themselves, and the craftsmanshi

We made the big mistake to book this B&B in Nelson, New Zealand, this March - don't do it, don't go there!!!

Our ferry was delayed due to storms on the day of our arrival which we immediately informed the B&B about via e-mail. First thing, they didn't believe us, accused us of b

Response from Ruebezahl402, Manager at The Beach House-Nelson
Responded 31 Mar 2018
Dear Lara We are very sorry you are unsatisfied about the way your situation was handled by us. Your statement is very unusual given that the majority of our responses from guests are overwhelmingly positive. We always do our best to accommodate the needs of our guests especially when unforeseen circumstances arise. Unfortunately due to your personal situation and without timely response to our request for clarification on your arrival time, we believed it was safer for you, given the time of night and the road conditions to stay in Picton. To clarify that your accommodation with us was not cancelled, we have enclosed a booking.com statement as well as our full conversation history with you. Sincerely we would like to make it up to you and offer you a free stay with us. Just give us a call next time you are in Nelson. We wish you all the best. Angie The Beach House-Nelson Management -------------------------------------------------------- Booking.com statement: Dear Partner We’re writing to you about reservation 1050922449 for Lara K., check-in date 2018-03-08. Lara K. was unable to honour reservation 1050922449. Thank you for notifying us through the Extranet so that we can verify what exactly has happened. This reservation was not canceled until after midnight when this reservation was officially designated as a no-show. Thanks very much Johaun H. Booking.com Customer Service Team ------------------------------------------------------- Guest Conversation: Guest - 8 Mar 2018, 11:15:32 I want to request check-in at 22:00 - 23:00. Is this okay? booking.com - (This request has been declined. Settings.) Guest - 8 Mar 2018, 11:23:38 Dear Sir or Madam, We just got the information that our ferry is about 5 hours delayed due to the weather conditions of last night which is why we probably won't be able to be in Nelson before 22 o'clock. We just changed our arrival time at your hotel through the app but still wanted to give you more detailed information. The Beach House-Nelson - 8 Mar 2018, 11:32:37 Hi Lara Our check-in closes at 8pm. Could you please provide us with a link or screen shot about the ferry delay. Thank you. Angie Manager Guest - 8 Mar 2018, 18:27:21 Hi Angie, Please find enclose a screenshot of the text we got today by bluebridge ferry. We're finally leaving Wellington harbour at this very moment. Will someone be at the front desk when we arrive, hopefully some time between 10pm and 11pm? Lara From Bluebridge Ferry – 8 Mar 2018, 9:22 We're sorry! Due to the ships late arrival into Wellington, our 1.30pm sailing is delayed. Check-in is 5.00pm Thanks for your patience. The Beach House-Nelson - 8 Mar 2018, 19:07:04 Hi Lara Thank you for getting back. We just called Bluebridge directly. The expected arrival time in Picton is 10.30pm. The travel time from Picton to Nelson is 2 hours. Expected arrival time here would be 0.30am at the 9th of March. We would have waited for you until 10pm, but unfortunately we wont be able to wait until after midnight. We recommend finding an accommodation in Picton, please. Regards Guest - 8 Mar 2018, 22:07:47 Hi Angie, Okay, thanks. Due to your cancelation, please transfer the money for the room back to my credit card, thank you. Best, Lara Guest - 27 Mar 2018, 22:48:17 To whom it may concern, I am contacting you regarding our booking for your B&B from the 8th-9th of March 2018 (confirmation number 1050922449). Sadly, you have not transferred the money back to my account, yet. As it was you who cancelled our booking, I hereby ask you to transfer the NZD 145 back to me so as soon as possible. Lara The Beach House-Nelson - 28 Mar 2018, 16:45:38 Hi Lara Thank you for your message. Your reservation did remain valid as we did not receive a cancellation request, nor are we able to cancel valid reservations through the booking.com system. We understand the ferry delay had been out of your hands, but should be expected by their terms and conditions. We would have loved to help you out, which was difficult as there was a conflict about your estimated arrival time. Following up the ferry delay we received your answer 7 hours later, which gave us no option to resell the reserved room as it had been blocked. We are sorry about any inconvenience caused. Regards Angie

We stayed at The Beach House last year in March ( 2017) on the way to Abel Tasman NP. Simply a great place! It felt like home. Quiet, super clean, modern and home made/grown healthy food for yummy breakfast. Angie and Georg were super helpful and welcoming !

We asked friends to join us the evening at the Boat House to hear the Mimosa Duo. We had no idea what a thrill we had in store, the Duo were out of this world. They are both classic musicians who have changed to Gypsy Jazz after six months in France.

The whole evening was deli

My partner and I booked to stay at The Beach House last minute after visiting the Abel Tasman. Angie was so helpful on the phone as I called to find out if there was enough parking for our boat along with our car. Turns out it worked perfectly.
