We had a delightful stay in this amazing B&B! We enjoyed the swimming pool and lounging in the well kept gardens. The hosts really cared about the accommodation and could not do enough for us or the other guests we met. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Thanks for a great and memorable stay!

As a solo traveler, I am always searching for safe, comfortable lodging in picturesque locations with convenient access to scenic sights. Atholwood is just such an establishment. The proprietors, Sarah and Ian could not be more welcoming or helpful, the accommodation I had was luxurious and supplied with all the comforts of home and more, and the homemade afternoon treats...

Having a great time at Atholwood. Sarah and Ian are most friendliest hosts. Their accommodations are beautifully presented and are of a high standard. And the views are second to none, a nice glass of wine watching the tide roll back into shore.

We recently arrived at Atholwood to be met at the door by Sarah who graciously said we have been upgraded to the main house units (although all are great). Our first impression of the surroundings and building were their impeccable condition. Beautiful grounds/gardens and an immaculate interior. Rooms were very large and comfortable and we were given a personal description... More

Sarah and Ian keep their lovely property in the perfect state - you'd think everything has just been redecorated throughout! You're in the perfect spot for Nelson and Abel Tasman NP so neither way takes too long; the rooms overlook a beautiful bay so you wouldn't even need to venture out... Should you need a kitchen try and get the... More

How wonderful it was to drive up to this peaceful retreat overlooking the ever moving tidal bays near Tasman Bay! Sara and Ian are lovely hosts who welcomed us with good cheer and some fantastic breakfasts. Situated near wine country, this was a great place to rest after long days of driving and tasting.

The accommodation here is fantastic. Everything was spotless and perfectly presented and the view from our balcony was superb. It was so tranquil sitting watching the tide come into the bay and watching all sorts of birdlife. We saw more birds here than anywhere else in NZ. Sarah and Ian are great hosts. Nothing was too much for them and... More

This B&B is beautifully situated overlooking one of the many tidal bays connected to Tasman Bay--off the beaten track and extremely quiet. Rooms are clean, comfortable, modern. The hosts are engaged and helpful. They offered a number of suggestions, all of which made our time in the Mapua area extremely enjoyable.
