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 ☺

Our room was so much more than we expected. It was totally complete and immaculate. Even had chocolates and cookies. They were so accommodating!! We are... More

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

We stayed here for two nights and it was quite nice! It was very clean and very nicely set out, but maybe a little intimidating, with all the artwork etc! Breakfast was delicious, just one small criticism, the bread was frozen! I just would expect fresh bread for the price and it was a let down. Port and sherry were... More

Amazing hospitality, close to town, great room, comfy bed, great whirlpool bath after a long day warm welcome and fantastic breakfast. A beautiful home, with some amazing pieces of art. Was tickled by the port and sherry in decanters in the living room as a nightcap for guests, would have been rude not to :-)

Would love to return for a holiday at this B & B. Welcoming hosts, delicious breakfasts, beautiful gardens, tuis singing in nearby trees, close to town, the cathedral and all that Nelson has to offer!
