A cute little B&B with history! We enjoyed our stay at this historic home. Comfortable and charming, nestled in a quiet little neighborhood in Nelson. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of the cities center!

Stayed 2 nights while visiting Nelson. Stayed in the lower rooms which have kitchen access. Nicely renovated in Victorian style. The continental breakfast was adequate but went to a cafe on the second day. Friends had recommended WH but had stayed in the upper rooms which appear to have more light and views.

After 2 weeks travelling the South Island we ended up staying here with the most comfortable bed on our trip. What a surprise to find a bath in the living space which was enthusiatically used! Great shower space and wonderful old fashioned toilet that definitely does concern itself with water saving measures! The shared kitchen/laundry was welcome too. Hosts were... More

My husband and I stayed at the Warwick House in February 2014.. We were totally blown away by the Bayview Suite, our spectacular room for one night. The suite is situated at the top of the house and reached by way of a separate entrance. It is truly elegant and offers every comfort you could want. The views from the... More

Fantastic bed and really cool bathroom. Great views over Nelson all the way to the sea. 1. Check in: fast, no problems. 2. Rooms: enormous suite... More

We booked directly at Warwick House for 2 nights and it was one of the highlights of our South Island trip. Warwick House is just a few minutes walk from central Nelson where we had some great meals. The property is an amazing opportunity to feel like the few wealthy early settlers who were able to enjoy the large house... More

I think we must have gotten the cut rate room...not in the castle but somehow attached. There did not seem to be many guests. We booked with a travel agent and depended on their expertise. I agree with the other reviewer that complained about the smell. Our bed was pushed up against a wall which made it hard for my... More

My wife and I recently spent a night at this establishment. It is presented as being a boutique hotel. That is certainly stretching a point, because in truth it is nothing more than a B&B, run by a husband and wife. Our bedroom suffered from a heavy fusty smell, sometimes found with very old rooms. Furthermore, the furnishings were poorly... More

The four of us stayed at Warwick House in January and had a wonderful visit. We've stayed in older vintage B&Bs before so had realistic expectations and an appreciation for the beautifully restored building and its decor. In fact, locals refer to it as "The Castle". We were in the Bayview and Tower rooms, which were large, well-appointed and furnished... More
