“Superb stay, but not long enough! Peter and Sandra Jackson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Everything about Kershaw House was superb, Pete and Jill certainly look after you so well and George was delightful! The only downside was we were only there 2 nights due to a hectic itinerary. Pete was so helpful and informative and Jill's breakfasts and home made 'goodies' were superb.
Definitely 5star plus establishment cannot recommend it enough

Thank you for taking time to review Kershaw House, it is a complaint we hear often that people wish they had longer - our region - like so much of NZ has a lot to offer. Hopefully you may choose to revisit again in the future and take the time to spend a little longer in your favourite areas. Warm Wishes Pete & Jill

I was in Richmond for a very dear friends wedding, and I was struggling to find accommodation... Until I found this.

The house is beautifully presented. The room we had was just so comfortable I was thinking of moving in, and the hosts were the perfect balance of attentive and invisible, so while this is B&B, which might scare some people off, I would say think again.

This brings together the best of being in a home and being away at the same time.. And it comes with a delicious breakfast.
Our wonderful hosts even dropped us off at the wedding so we did not have to think about our car for the night.

I would never consider another accommodation when visiting this area.

Thank you for reviewing our property so kindly - we agree B&B accommodation can be a lovely warm way to stay away from home. We do try to stay accessible for our guests without being to intrusive on their time. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind Regards Jill & Pete

We got to Kershaw House a day late due to flight delay from Taupo the previous day. It was a great pity as we were only able to stay for two nights instead of three. However we arrived early the following day and had a splendid welcome from Pete and The Star of the Show as far as I was concerned, George the Miniature Snauzer X ! He was gorgeous and Pete let me take him for Walkies around Richmond on both evenings. Accommodation was super too, lovely comfy bed , tea and home made biccies in the bedroom. We were made to feel very at home by Pete and Jill and welcomed their advice to get as much as possible from our two nights there. They book tickets for us for our daytime activities and advised on where to go for supper.
I cannot recommend Kershaw House highly enough, we had a fab time there. Any regrets ?.........saying "goodbye" to George !

Room Tip: Double aspect room at the front of the house.

We stayed here for 3 nights towards the end of February and can only confirm the views of the other reviewers. This is without doubt a 5 star B & B and scores full marks on every criteria. The house is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable throughout. We stayed in the Abel Tasman suite which is extremely spacious, spotlessly clean with a large, blissfully comfortable bed. Peter and Jill are, indeed, the perfect hosts and the little touches like freshly baked cookies in the room just add to the overall experience, as did the parting gift of one of Peter's New Zealadn travel videos.

Peter is a font of knowledge about the area and, following his suggestions, we had two wonderful days in the area. Kershaw House certainly deserves its No 1 Trip Advisor ranking and you cannot fail to be impressed so thank you Peter and Jill for helping to make our NZ trip so special.

Room Tip: You won't go wrong with the Abel Tasman suite

Look we like to travel globally a lot and you'll notice I seldom review anything and I mostly do so when I want to rant about how bad it was
Kershaw House is different- in seldom is it ever got so right and so I am compelled to rave about this place. In a nutshell:
Peter and Gill are lovely warm authentic people who know how to host and give great service.
Vegan breakfast no problem ( we're vegans and Gill automatically knew to check the bread she had for milk powder) and breakfast was great
Accommodation is extremely comfortable (5 star) and very well considered (great linen, furniture you have a use for that is all in excellent condition. Good sized bathroom - well equipped.
Super clean.
Lovely outdoor areas and sunroom.
Nice lounge with big sofas and library and guitars etc
Free wifi in rooms and Internet station downstairs where it was fine to print for free

Look I could go on for quite bit but I will finish with this really is a great Boutique B&B and I'm a judgemental perfectionist.

PS we're a gay male couple - so to put it in international speak this is a Rainbow Community friendly property. But enough of this self marginalization and labelling Peter and Gill and people who like people.

PPS Pete even dropped us off at the event we went to - saved us a $20-$30 cab fare I reckon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Able Tasman room and we liked it

We had read the reviews and we were looking forward to our stay here. We were not disappointed. Jill and Peter were wonderful hosts and made us truly welcome. The fruit cake in our room was just wanted we needed after our long drive, and was delicious. The bedroom was very luxurious with an extremely comfortable bed and had everything we could want.Fresh milk for morning tea in the room and water in the fridge was a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious especially the homemade marmalade and muesli. Pete was very helpful with suggestions of where we should visit and giving us directions on how to get there. He even booked restaurants for us where he had recommended we should eat. We only stayed two nights, we wished we could of stayed longer.
Thank you Jill and Peter for a lovely couple of days.
