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 ☺

Can't fault our weekend...we were immediately made so welcome. Everything was spotless and comfortable, and Wayne and Val went out their way to keep it that way. The breakfasts were first-class and set the tone, each morning, for a positively delightful Nelson stay. We will thoroughly recommend Shelbourne Villa and can't wait for a return visit!

We stayed in all sorts of accommodation on our trip around New Zealand including several B & B's and this was definitely the best, We stayed in the smallest room but it was spacious with an extra little lobby where the amenity tray was - lots of little extras there, chocolate, cookies etc. The hosts were friendly and had thought...

The owners Wayne and Val were very welcoming and they also waited for us coming late at night at the hotel. The room were we stayed was big, nice and cleen! The place is very quiet and you can sleep so well. One of the best things was also the breakfast....Wayne is an excellent chef :) We felt like home
