My hubby Ross & I stayed here at Cherswud B&B in Johnsonville for one & a half weeks. It was a delight in many ways. The owners, David & Marilyn bent over backwards to make sure our stay was everything it should be; relaxing, clean, super friendly, helpful & privacy when needed. The icing on the cake was the delightful... More

We spent 2 nights in Cherswud, David and Marilyn were kind enough to change our booking at the last minute due to problems with the ferry to Nelson. We enjoyed our stay here and breakfasts provided by Joe were excellent and included cereals, fruit and cooked varieties if you wanted to go the whole hog. The accommodation was very spacious... More

Joe is the rock star here and is your chef and concierge at this fantastic alternative to staying in a sterile downtown hotel. We chose Cherswud because of its location to a family wedding. Perfect choice! We rang to say we would like an early check in to get changed before the wedding ceremony. Not a problem. Joe bakes his... More

We were lucky enough to find Cherswud for our one night in Wellington and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Marilyn, David and Joe. We were made to feel like family and only wish we'd arranged to have them prepare dinner for us the night we were there. It's a bit far from town for an easy drive or walk to... More

This B & B was a great find. Its not for from the city and has good bus and train services so it is easy to get around the city and see all the sites. David and Marilyn are great hosts and looked after all our needs very well. Joe was the beakfast king with many choices to set us... More

David and Marilyn could not be more gracious and inviting. Their home is great with an interesting history. We were so engaged in conversation our first night that Marilyn, to keep it going, whipped up a few dishes for dinner - and never charged us; we were, literally, their guests. Another night, we were invited to join them and another... More

Cherswud B & B was an unexpected treasure! Joe was a gem and so very interesting and welcoming. I could have talked with him for hours! He had so many stories to tell and so much knowledge. The house was lovely and the spa bath was such a treat. It was quite cold being the middle of winter, but the... More

This is the second time I stayed with Marilyn and David and Joe. They are fantastic hosts and make me feel like part of their family. Nothing is too much trouble, down to the hot drinks for my cough! I highly recommend this B&B - really lovely!
