Beautifully decorated rooms, stunning views of the ocean and Nelson harbour. Located on the Quay road across from the ocean. Warm hospitality and excellent service. Breakfasts were delicious and creative and wine and cheese in late afternoon was a bonus. Only issue was traffic noise one night. Lots to do downtown and easily walkable.

We stayed in the Crow's Nest and it was a fantastic stay. Views were spectacular, room was great, hosts were extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfasts were very tasty. Enjoyed the afternoon get-togethers on the deck. Thanx Woodi and John, for everything.

We stayed here in early January on our honeymoon, and it was the perfect rest stop between several larger luxury hotels. Woodi was a fantastic host, helping us get settled with things to do around town, and then helping us plan our long drive to Queenstown the next day (and packing food for our journey). We had the room without... More

Such an unforgettable place! Amazing view and location, elegant rooms, super comfy beds, and fantastic breakfast are just a few of the many things to love about this B & B. Woodi and Johnny are superb hosts, kind, fun, and helpful. I would give Wakefield Quay 6 stars if I could. Wish I were back there now!

We had the room with a balcony and the view was so beautiful (the view from the bathroom is also lovely). Its so relaxed to have snacks with a glass of white wine under sunshine that day. We also had a delicious dinner at a restaurant recommended by woodi. Thank you and all the best!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. I read the review and it sounded like you had a fantastic time at our lovely old villa. You enjoyed our hospitality, the complimentary evening drinks and nibbles and the rooms with their stunning sea views, all of which I was really... More

Where do I start? Wonderful hospitality from Woodi and Johnny, stunning location, luxurious room (fluffy bathrobes etc.) and The Breakfast - yummy! Woodi will show you the best bits of Nelson - whether it's popping into town to shop and eat or out to the wineries. And there will be a glass of wine waiting for you at the end... More

Wakefield Quay House is a fantastic place to stay. It definitely ticked all the boxes for us: not far from the airport, close to Nelson City centre, has a great selection of restaurants on the door step, has amazing ocean views just across the road, a different breakfast option every day, and fantastic hosts who make you feel that their...

Woody was a wonderful host. After a long 3 days walking in the Abel Tasman, she was exactly the tonic we needed. She looked after us amazingly, and we would highly recommend the wonderful room, stunning location, and warm hospitality. We can't wait to return

What can I say that hasn't already been said about this amazing inn and its hosts? Woodi and Johnny are two of a kind --- gracious, warm, funny, helpful, welcoming and kind. From the moment we entered, we were treated like family. Maybe better than family! What a treat in the middle of a long vacation to feel so comfortable... More

I never wanted to leave. Woodi and Johnny are the ultimate hosts- open, warm, fun and funny. The house is gorgeous, impeccably decorated, and the views unreal. Without asking, we were given an upgraded room as we were the only guests-- one of the many ways in which Woodi went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. We felt... More
