“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Sumptuous room, stunning views, lovely family atmosphere. Great base to visit the local area and Gill is able to make excelent suggestions about where to visit. I stayed in the Alexander suite which was extreamly comfortable. Also recommend trying the spa.

We stayed here for three nights last November during a month's tour of New Zealand and the Cook Islands, and we cannot rate this jewel of NZ highly enough. The location, the rooms. the breakfast and most of all the hospitality cannot be beaten.

Firstly the location - just outside Nelson but with a magnificent view of the bay, and easy access to most of the area. The garden is a delight, and the perfect place for breakfast on the terrace, which in itself is a meal to savour, with so many choices it made choosing difficult, and the potential to stay there all morning. The room was equally palatial and really comfortable, with a lovely veranda - ideal for an end of day apperatif or two. Others have mentioned the toilet paper origami figures; so good we saved thembut in the end went and bought the book and have been practicing at home. The only things we didn't try were the pool or hot tub - the weather wasn't really warm enough unfortunately.

However, the outstanding hospitality marked Kimeret Place as exceptional. Gill is an excellent hostess, and the little touches all around the place really help to make you feel at home. Her expert knowledge of the local area helped us decide on what to do, where to eat and even sorted out a place for an anniversary dinner (before we arrived).

We wish we could have stayed longer - next time we will.

Although we arrived hours before we were expected, Gill gave us a warm welcome. All the little attentions in the room and at breakfast make you really feel at home. She gave us very good advice about activities and restaurants.

This is an outstanding B&B with an exceptional level of hospitality that even extends to a turndown service and making origami models from the end of the toilet paper roll. Our host provided numerous small acts of hospitality that made us feel welcome.

We had a very large room with settees and a veranda giving superb views over the tidal creeks around Rabbit Island. The bed was big and very comfortable; there was plenty of storage space and a large bathroom. Wifi was fast and there was plenty of parking.

Breakfast was extremely well cooked and presented out on the deck, with plenty of choice and generous portions. We saw many varieties of fresh fruits at breakfast that we hadn’t encountered elsewhere in NZ.

Our host gave us good advice about options for trips into the Abel Tasman National Park by boat and by water taxi, plus walking on the huge beaches of Rabbit Island. We opted for a full day cruise with Abel Tasman Charters - which took just us and another couple. An expensive day, but a great way to see the park from the water, spending some time exploring on foot and also taking out a kayak.

It is a 20 minute drive to Rabbit Island (connected to the mainland by bridge) which has 8km long golden sandy beaches that were essentially deserted. A fabuous, relaxing place to walk the beach.

The local restaurants are a 15 minute drive. Of these the Appleshed has a superb waterfront location, excellent food and reasonably fast service. The Boatshed also has a waterfront location and good food served in huge portions. Both these were recommended and booked by our host.

This B&B has a hot tub with an great array of jets designed to soothe and relax. There is also a small solar heated swimming pool.

One of the best places we stayed at during our one month tour of New Zealand. Gill made us very welcome right from the moment we arrived. Our room had fantastic views, the complimentary cakes in our room when we arrived and each day afterwards were delicious as was breakfast each day. The Maori story at night with the bed turn down made interesting reading. The origami toilet rolls were so artistic it was a shame to use this essential paper but not to worry, another one would appear. Gill was an excellent hostess and very helpful with advice and arrangements on trips, attractions and eating out. Thank you very much for a wonderful and memorable stay.

Our children treated us to the bed and breakfast as part of our 25 th wedding anniversary. Our hostess made us welcome and we soon discovered that we were upgraded to a gorgeous room with a view. The sharpness in the small and large design details, cosiness, and room facility is of high standard. Actually the price is really too low...thankfully. A real genuine recommendation for value for money and experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but the master suite the one we had well what can we say...
