We stayed 2 nights in the Garden Suite. We absolutely loved the stay and would return without hesitation. The facilities are fresh, clean and delightful. Breakfast was amazing, first class. The Villa is only 5 minutes from the township yet the only noise you heard was from birds. However, the best part was the welcome and friendliness of Val and... More

Breakfast was delicious, and offered early for our morning excusion to Abel Tasman Park. Wayne and Val were very personable, and stored our luggage for 2 nights while we hiked and... More

We stayed in the loft suite - a large, most attractively decorated and furnished area. Warm welcome from the very helpful hosts Wayne and Val, and an excellent breakfast. Very handy position so close to the cathedral and shopping areas.

We had not visited the Nelson region for many years and we wanted to be based in a central location so we could really explore the region easily and see everything on our list. Shelbourne Villa was one street from the main street in Nelson so a five minute walk to the best coffee shops and restaurants. Perfect location a... More

Very conveniently located in nelson township, easy walking distance to all the pubs and restaurants. We stayed in the loft apartment which was spacious and (apparently) a bath to die for! Great comfy bed (super king?) that resulted in a great sleep. Breakfasts were fantastic with home made muesli and fruit followed by a cooked breakfast that varied. Wayne is... More

We stayed in the loft suite which was just fabulous, sat on the balcony & had dinner & a glass of wine & looked out over Nelson. Very comfy bed, lovely big bath in a very spacious bathroom. Val & Wayne were lovely hosts. Would love to return some time.
