What a quaint, comfortable accommodation with delightful hosts! Great breakfast, too. Our room had lots of leaded glass and a fireplace. The gardens are beautiful and well-manicured. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch and reading. Very close to town.

A very comfortable overnight stay in a period house near the town centre. We had a nice welcome from the owner, who showed us to our very pleasant room. He also booked us into the local no.1 restaurant, which was a 10 minute walk away. Later that evening we enjoyed a glass of port from a help yourself decanter in... More

This B&B delivers with spacious rooms with decent kitchen, bathroom and bed. Common areas are very nice and well arranged. Breakfast was great, including warm waffles in our case. It does seem to attract somewhat 'older crowd', so me and my girlfriend felt a bit out of place at the breakfast table (mid 20s).

Val and Wayne are the perfect hosts; they just make you feel like you are at home. Large room with most comfortable bed and especially good shower. Breakfasts were fantastic both continental and cooked meal and Wayne provided plenty of advice on activities to do in Nelson and also about the best restaurants for dinner. Couldn't be improved Libby and... More

My wife and I stayed here in January 2015 on our honeymoon -- first stop on the south island. Wayne & Val could not have been kinder hosts and they have a beautiful property with terrific views. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

Wayne and Val are the perfect hosts and willingly share their beautiful home with their guests. Rooms are extremely well appointed and comfortable and they provide all the little extras one would expect from such high quality accommodation. The size and quality of the breakfast was equally impressive. We will certainly be returning.

Wayne and Val are excellent hosts and have a beautiful home with great views of Nelson.Shelbourne Villa is immaculate and had some great design touches. We were lucky enough to be in the Loft suite. Apart from quite steep steps up to the suite, the setting is perfect. Val prepares a cooked breakfast which changes daily. They have thought of... More

Great location next to restaurants, bus stops, shopping, etc. We stayed three nights here and enjoyed it. We got the garden room on the first floor, opened all the windows and doors and the breeze was heavenly. Very "homey." We are younger, and it caters more to a more seasoned crowd than us, but still you can't beat the location...and... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Had a one bedroom apartment with roll out bed for 3 adults. Plenty of room but the bathroom off the main bedroom was a bit unfortunate (though didn't really cause any trouble). The rooms were nicely furnished and clean. Comfy beds. Well equipped mini kitchen. Good amenities. Great breakfast. And friendly hosts. Very quiet location... More

We had a fabulous 2 night stay in January 2015. The B&B was fully booked but was well set up so privacy was easy. The breakfasts were delicious and beautiful produce used. Lots of lovely touches including baking on our tea tray. Would definitely recommend ☺
