A very warm welcome by Woodi. The home was beautiful with gorgeous views of the sea and nicely appointed rooms. Woodi cooked us excellent breakfasts and serves local wines and starters at 6:00. She can recommend restaurants within walking distance-- that were also excellent. You won't be disappointed in Nelson if you stay at the Wakefield Quay House😀👍

Woodi cooked us some awesome breakfasts and recommended a couple of fantastic restaurants within walking distances as well as Cable Bay kayaking... More

A lovely warm welcome, great communication and very relaxing stay. This traditional New Zealand home has sweeping panoramic ocean views across the bay to Able Tasman National Park, is beautifully maintained and the hosts are wonderful. Happy memories, many thanks Woodie & Johnny!

This beautiful Edwardian era guesthouse is run with relaxed charm by Woodi and Johnny. Wakefield House is chic and comfortable, and an easy stroll along the waterfront into Nelson. Here I had the best hotel breakfast I've ever eaten, and I cannot recommend this lovely place highly enough. Can't wait to go back.

Highly recommended - Lovely heritage house with amazing seaviews. Our room (Crow's Nest)  was well appointed and comfortable with a large private balcony with amazing views (even the bathroom has a view). Woodi and Johnny are friendly, engaged and helpful hosts. Pre-dinner drinks on the deck is just one of the extra touches which makes Wakefield Quay House very special.... More

Thank you Woodi and Johnny for your hospitality . Your home is filled with warmth and the pre-dinner drinks a great get-together for information exchange and lovely chatter. The little extra touches in the room were much appreciated too!

What a fabulous place, exquisitely designed, wonderfully comfortable and great breakfasts. We loved the hospitality offered by Woodi and Jonny and the conversation over a platter and wine. Such a memorable stay it helped make our trip to New Zealand a very special one. The villa with wonderful views of the sea and mountains was a real showstopper, along with... More
