A beautifully renovated house, with thoughtful touches throughout. Janet and Tim were extremely welcoming and gave us an amazing breakfast each day filled with entertaining tales. Catered for gluten free without any trouble, in fact they even went all out and bought a fresh loaf of bread! (Unheard of when you're gluten free.) The room was warm with stunning views.... More

Wonderful, relaxing, gorgeous! Janet & Tim made us feel at home in their gorgeous B&B... Our room was large, pretty, comfortable & relaxing.

Great place with gorgeous rooms, the electrical blankets made our stay even warmer. The owners were extremely friendly and waiting for us even though we arrived late. The beautiful breakfast made us feel like royals.

Thank you for your kind review. I am glad you liked the electric blankets, certainly makes getting into the bed on a cool night a lot nicer. I thought your 'pun' about being treated as royalty in our 'royal' dining room was good, hope you come and visit again. More

Our touring agency chose this B&B and we were so happy they did! We had the Brookview room which was our own piece of heaven! The room was large and very well appointed..and the large tub was a special treat. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were very helpful. Highly recommended!

My husband and I highly recommend Baywick Inn! This was, by far, one of the best bed and breakfasts that we have ever visited. Everything was spectacular, from the lovely restored home to the amazingly accommodating hospitality of our hosts.

I am so glad that you enjoyed our 1880's restored home, in 'sunny' Nelson. We too think that Nelson is quite an interesting and pretty town. The waterfront and beach is gorgeous, the river walks are very pleasant and with Abel Tasman park so close,it provides great walks and fabulous kayaking. Tim and I both hope that you will return...
