We stayed in the Cowdrey Apartment for 3 nights and loved it: wonderful balcony with a beautiful view and the rooms were spacious and extremely clean with a good kitchen. Location is excellent: lots of vineyards nearby and not far from Kahurangi National Park or Nelson, but still the place is very peaceful and quiet. Breakfast was wonderful and an... More

We had a wonderful 3-night stay at Atholwood! Sarah and Ian have created a classy, contemporary vacation oasis on their Tasman Bay property. The room and en suite bathroom were tastefully elegant. The grounds and gardens were lovely. Breakfast was always delicious, as was the nightly treat left in our room! We hope to be back!

The hotel is a relatively new development, in a quiet spot off the main road. The entrance is secluded and the front garden is a delight of both light and shade. The main block has two rooms, all self-contained, upstairs with lovely views of the bay and the mountains behind the town of Nelson. The rooms are light, airy and... More

Sarah and Ian are the perfect hosts in this stunning B and B. We agree whole-heartedly with all the other 5* reviews as this was absolutely the best place we stayed in on the South Island of New Zealand, with the most outstanding views. If you want peaceful,relaxing accommodation AND with modern facilities, yet not far from the beautiful Abel... More

Our hosts greeted us and helped us get situated... the apartment overlooks a bay and we could watch the birds, sunset. Breakfast was great with a varied menu and hosts were friendly and helpful about what to do and see in the area.

Our stay at Atholwood was arranged at very short notice but Sarah and Ian made us feel welcome and valued. We were upgraded to a large, stylish and beautifully furnished en-suite room with verandah which enjoyed magnificent views across the lake. If only we could stay forever ...

Sarah and Ian's stunning B&B was our first stop on South Island on our New Zealand tour. After a warm welcome we were shown to a lovely room with balcony in the main house with just fabulous views across the water to the mountains beyond. The gardens are a delight. The room was a lovely size with all the necessary... More
