Superb! Simply superb! We spent 3 weeks travelling around the North & South Islands. This was definitely the best place we stayed. Great rooms, great views, great location, fabulous breakfasts and really good advice & help with what to do and where to go in the local area. Lis and Chris were magnificent hosts and the Cats Pyjamas will be... More

At cat's pjama, everything is immaculate! Liz is an amazing host and thought through every step of your stay. Our room was very cosy and clean and we were happy to find out it was located next to the wonderful maintained garden. We loved the herbal toiletries in the bathroom after we just came back from a long walk in... More

We stayed 4 nights at Cat's Pjamas which was way to short to enjoy and explore the beautiful surroundings of Nelson, Abel Tasman and Golden Bay. The B&B is situated in a fantastic garden and has beautiful views. Liz could not have been more hospitable and gave perfect custom fit advise on what to do and where to eat. Chris... More

Absolutely top notch in every way! A wonderful B&B with a great location, beautiful views and five star hospitality. I was looking for a B&B with access to the Abel Tasman Park, as well as to do some cycling and couldn't have found more ideal accommodations and hospitality. Lis went out of her way to set me up for a... More

Beautiful garden on the hill slopes overlooking the Tasman bay at Mapua. Spacious facilities and a splendid host in Lis. We had a very tasty breakfast and avo tea. The bed was simply the best for a good nights sleep. The wharf at Mapua was a buss with live music and great food.

excuse the title.. too easy .. but we're not crazy cat lovers and this B&B was really first rate. We (partner and 2 teenage daughters) booked both rooms and ensuites and they were both incredibly comfortable - beds were better than our own or any upmarket hotel. Beautiful small touches - slippers, a little plate of home made cake draped... More

This small B&B is the perfect place to visit the Abel Tasman National Park. The rooms are spacious, full of light and have wonderful bath rooms. The garden is a paradise and the views on the bay are spectacular. The host is an outstanding travel planner and has many secrete tips. She can also help you with reservations, so no... More

My folks and I stayed with Lis at the Cat's Pjamas for two nights. We had originally booked one room for three people, but as the other room was free, Lis kindly let me use that room at no extra charge! The beds were so comfortable and the food was delicious.

My husband and I spent three nights at this wonderful B&B while on vacation in New Zealand, and we loved it. Close to the town of Nelson, the Cats Pjamas is a great place to stay!

My wife and I travelled to Nelson to cycle the Great Taste Trail for 3 days. We spent 2 nights at Cats Pyjamas. We hired bikes at Nelson Airport and cycled to Mapua. As the B&B is located just outside of Mapua (in Bronte), the owner Lis came and collected us along with our bikes at Mapua wharf. Prior to... More
