Wayne and Valerie are to be congratulated for their fabulous B&B: gorgeous grounds and interior, awesome food and gracious hospitality. We would recommend this B&B—a walk away from the heart of the charming town of Nelson-- to anyone, without hesitation. And don't forget to walk one of the Able Tasman cliff walks!

Val and Wayne very helpful, hospitable and knowledgeable. Their place is lovely and spacious, clean and great breakfast too. Interesting to chat to other guests - felt like a family weekend. Great restaurants close by and Saturday market not to be missed if you are there at the weekend. Great place to spend a few days!

We recently spent two nights at the Villa. Wayne and Val run a very professional and comfortable B&B. Location is just off the CBD and in easy walking distance to good restaurants. We got great tips about Nelson that greatly enhanced our stay. Breakfasts were superb.

Very warm and comfortable bed and breakfast, great shared living area with good local books, handy location within walking distance of town, shops and restaurants. Close to walking track alongside river. Wayne makes really good breakfasts, he and Val are lovely hosts!

Beautiful and clean B&B a few blocks from the main dining/shopping area of Nelson. Friendly hosts, comfortable beds, and good breakfasts round out a great experience, whether taking a day trip to Abel Tasman or exploring Nelson on foot.

A beautiful house with history and with lovely guest accommodation, near the centre of Nelson, lovely hosts and breakfasts to die for. What more could you ask, just wish it was nearer home ;-) Thank you.

Booked this lovely B&B for three nights in Nelson. Hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable but also unobtrusive. Rooms were large and VERY comfortable. We would happily have stayed longer had our itinerary permitted.

We stayed here for two nights recently and our room was spacious comfortable and immaculate. The guest's lounge was terrific and enhanced by the fee port and sherry on offer. An easy walk into town where there are excellent restaurants, cafes and bars. Our hosts looked after us early well. Who could ask for more?

This was a realy convenient place to stay right near the centre of Nelson, but it was quiet as well. We had heaps of space with comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and an extra little area for tea-making. The price was extremely reasonable for the excellent standard. Don't miss the mushroom & spinach omelette at breakfast if it's offered!
