“Wonderful hosts, lovely house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had the privilege of staying at Kershaw House last weekend and had a wonderful time. Having previously read the reviews, our expectations were pretty high but were still exceeded. Jill and Pete (and George the dog) were very warm and welcoming hosts and their extra touches (the home baking, wine and chocolates in our room, complimentary port in the lounge) were very much appreciated. Jill's breakfasts were delicious and Jill and Pete's helpful advice on how to spend our time in the area was very useful. Our room (the Abel Tasman Suite) was lovely, comfortable and spacious. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

We have just returned from two nights at Kershaw House. Without exception, accomodation and hospitality exceeded our very high expectations. Four very weary, wet walkers arrived off the bus from Abel Tasman National Park. We were so warmly greeted that we felt at home immediately. All our luggage was soaking wet, yet there was not even a flicker to indicate displeasure as we dripped on the beautiful carpet. We were treated to home baking and the most amazing breakfasts, home made chocolates and boutique wine. Jill & Pete considered our every need, recommending the WOW gallery and booking tables at excellent restaurants for us. We left left feeling like we were saying goodbye to dear friends. We will be recommending Kershaw House to all family and friends travelling to Nelson. George & Kitty were pretty neat, too!

Room Tip: The Richmond Room has a lovely corner window overlooking the road through which the sun poured.

We had a great experience with Jill and Peter and would definitely return. The room was lovely, Jill's helpful tips to get around and where to go for dinner were spot on. Breakfast was delight in the morning. Thanks again.

We recently had a wonderful weekend in Nelson staying at Kershaw House. This lovely house is warm and welcoming as were the hosts Jill and Pete. We were welcomed by Jill and Pete and George (their dog who was so cute I wanted to take him home) From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Our room was gorgeous, very sunny and warm with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Jill is an exceptional cook serving yummy breakfasts and leaving to die for home made biscuits in our room! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay we will be back!

We stayed at Kershaw House for two nights in late February as part of our Relaxing Journeys self-drive NZ trip. Jill and Pete (and not forgetting their wee dog, George) were excellent hosts who made you feel right at home from the warm welcome to the fond farewell. Their 1920's historic home is indeed beautiful and they have a top-notch service to match. Their extensive knowledge of their area (excursions, dinner restaurants and lunch stop-offs) gave us the maximum out of our limited time in the Nelson/Abel Tasman area.

We stayed at Kershaw House for 5 days in early January.

The accommodation was excellent, very clean and comfortable with a lot of attention to detail. Nice and homely.

Gill and Pete were great hosts and Gill’s gourmet breakfasts were delicious. She is a very good cook and very kindly left home made cakes/biscuits in the room each day. Their knowledge of the area was very helpful and they recommended some very good restaurants. Indeed, they went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our stay.

We also loved being greeted by their lovely dog, George, each morning. He is such a well behaved little chap.

We stayed at Kershaw House whilst we were holidaying in NZ for our honeymoon. The location was a little tricky to get to at first, however it was easy the second time round. This place is just brillant. The rooms are a great size. We stayed in the Abel Tasman room which had a very comfy bed and a great size bathroom. The House itself is just gorgeous! The hosts are great people, who have a real passion about NZ and are very knowledgable about the area.The breakfast every morning was a real treat! Highly reccommend this place!
