This has to be an oasis in Nelson; it's within really easy walking distance to the town centre, yet ideally situated to be quiet and tucked away. The accommodation was absolutely brilliant, with everything that we needed plus additions that enhanced the stay. With a very warm welcoming, superb hosting, gorgeous breakfasts and a fabulous (garden) room, this should be... More

This fantastically located BandB offers everything we wanted for a relaxing weekend away. Nestled in a quiet street, this excellent location offers peace and quiet while only being a few minutes walk away from the city center. Mark and John were excellent hosts, not too intrusive but attentive when needed, and Mark made us a scrumptious full english to set... More

We have stayed at Ah House twice over the past 2 years & can thoroughly recommend it. Mark & John were excellent hosts, having the right balance between being attentive, friendly , helpful & welcoming but also giving us our own space whilst staying with them. The accommodation was clean, quiet & convenient with delicious breakfasts.

Our second stay at Ah House. Last year we stayed for one month and this February we stayed again for 4 weeks. Mark and John are the perfect hosts. The accomodation was very spacious and beautifully presented. Lovely gardens to sit out and have breakfast and to relax. The short stroll to Nelson town centre is ideal for eating out... More

We stayed with Mark and John for one night during our honeymoon. Sadly, the weather in Nelson was wet, wet, wet during our stay, but Mark and John's sunny hosting certainly kept our spirits up. Our room (along with separate lounge and patio and own bathroom) was very nice and well appointed and Mark and John provided great restaurant recommendations... More

We only stayed 1 night here but wished we could have stayed longer. Mark and John and Bella (dog) made us feel very welcome and looked after us every way, even offering to do my laundry. The accomodation was very spacious and beautifully presented. There was lots of information provided with regards to the local area and restaurants. Breakfast can... More

Ah House hits all the right notes; a spotlessly clean, large room with comfortable bed, sofa and chairs with doors out to a sunny terrace in a lovely quiet garden. Just the place to unwind after a busy day's touring. It's only a short stroll along quiet streets and paths around the church to the restaurants in Nelson. Excellent breakfast... More

From the moment we first started considering Ah House, through the final moments saying goodbye to our hosts, our experience with Ah House was top notch! Mark and John were exceptionally responsive to our initial inquiry, and we had a nice conversation when we booked the room, during which Mark offered anything he could do to help us plan our...
