Booked into Ah House again for another weekend getaway. This place is just awesome. Mark & John never fail to give the best hospitality and another stellar breakfast. This place is so handy for Nelson town centre and is awesome value for money. We will be back!

I spent 3 nights here and hope to come back in the near future. Mark and John are wonderful hosts and Mark makes a great breakfast. The house is very nice and the garden is beautiful. It's a short walk from downtown and some wonderful restaurants. The view of the cathedral from the house is very nice as well. I... More

This is a beautiful B&B in attractive Nelson. Very friendly hosts. Very nicely decorated rooms and beautiful outdoor garden. Super comfy bed. Lots of pillows. Delicious breakfast will be served on the terrace, if weather conditions permits it. Hoopgood's restaurants and Main St. just 5 minutes away. Highly recommended.

Mark and John are great hosts, fun and friendly and Mark's attention to detail is exceptional. The Garden Room is spacious and extremely comfortable and we loved eating Mark's delicious breakfast outside our room. The location, only a 5 minute walk into town, was perfect. We stayed for only 2 nights and left feeling it was too soon!

My wife and I spent three perfect nights at the AH House in November. Mark and John were great hosts. The B&B is beautiful. Mark served a perfect breakfast each day always checking with us what we would like. Not only was the food excellent but the setting and service was totally classy making us feel special. Mark had great... More

My husband and I just finished up a 2-week trip in the South Island with a 3-night stay in the garden apartment at the Ah House, and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Mark and John were so welcoming and helpful, and gave us great ideas for things to do in and around town. Thanks to their suggestions we... More

It has now been a week since we left Nelson and we are pining dreadfully. Mark and John are superb hosts with the most welcoming of personalities and outstanding breakfast skills. Their house is beautiful, delightful, roomy, fascinating, clean beyond reproach, peaceful, central and earthquake proofed!! The lemon eating dog was an unexpected and brilliant added extra. We are looking... More

It's all about location, atmosphere, environment, and value. Ah House ticked all my boxes for the above - just off the city centre, so peaceful but walkable to everywhere you'd want to be in Nelson; friendly and helpful/informative welcome from Mark; great room with more extras than you'd expect; considering all that, good value for money too! Highly recommended -... More

It is difficult to add anything more about this wonderful B&B that hasn't already been said in previous reviews so I will say just this - to miss out on staying here whilst you are in Nelson is to miss out on a) excellent hospitality from Mark and John ( not forgetting the lovely Bella), b) the chance to stay...

Spent 2 nights with Mark & John in their (Ah) House during tour of South Island and before driving on to Picton to catch ferry to North Island. One steps off the street, after parking car in garage they provide, in to a bit of New Zealand that will always be England! What a fantastic place. Extensive accommodation to rear... More
