I highly recommend adding Atholwood to your stay. Though a little off the beaten path from Nelson, it's convenient to the city, wineries and Abel Tasman. Sarah and Ian treat you like family friends, and are welcoming, gracious and accommodating. Sarah helped us call several locations for bookings and reservations, and provided great advice and maps. Also, the views are... More

The accommodation and welcome by Sarah and Ian at Atholwood were both fantastic. We were made to feel very welcome from the word go, just like being at home with none of the work. The views were to die for and only enhanced the tranquility of the location. Being a B&B breakfast was important and never let us down, everything... More

Quite fantastic situation, overlooking Waimea Inlet. Set in lovely gardens with great bird life inc resident kingfisher. Wonderful spacious room with quite superb bathroom (we stayed in one of the two guest suites in the main lodge). The suite is on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the inlet and to the Nelson mountains beyond. Sarah and Ian were... More

The Atholwood is a unique place located on a dramatic estuary along the coast of the South Island near the Abel Tasman Park. Sarah and Ian have done a fantastic job of providing a warm and comfortable room with a fantastic view. Their property is beautifully landscaped and their hospitality shines through. Wonderful breakfast, great room, kayaking and a swimming... More

The Atholwood is in a beautiful location, and it is a quality accommodation with the finest in construction and finishes. It is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The only negative is that we felt like we were visiting in someone's home and felt a little inhibited.

We loved Atholwood; fantastic rooms and view. We stayed in the Cowdrey Suite and loved it. Run by Sarah who was really friendly and helpful. All the facilities you could want including Wi-Fi and dishwasher. Sarah will do your washing and ironing for 10 NZD. Breakfast also amazing, even allowing you a choice of cooked breakfasts along with all the... More

What a lovely place to stay! Great hosts, and amazing views of the estuary. The design and layout of the B&B is top notch, not surprising given Sarah & Ian's background in the construction trade. They have a hot tub and a pool which are well worth trying out. Were staying here as a means to go to Abel Tasman,... More

Three truly wonderful nights stay in luxurious accommodation, situated in a quiet location with lovely garden and beautiful views. Ian and Sarah were the perfect friendly and welcoming hosts who did so much to make our stay enjoyable. From all aspects Atholwood would be difficult to beat!

Atholwood is a great option for touring the Abel Tasman region. The Cowdrey Apartment had a great bed and bathroom and we loved the balcony, and it was nice to have our own private spot. The views of the estuary and mountains were beautiful--it's a very peaceful place to spend a couple of days!

Having completed a long drive from Christchurch, we were welcomed by Ian and Sarah at Atholwood, a haven of peace and tranquility. The Cowdrey apartment was beautifully appointed with a superb view from our balcony of the Waimea estuary and its local kingfishers. Our hosts provided us with very helpful advice and information of the area over delicious breakfasts. The... More
