Amazing place, thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this beautiful, stately home. Great email communication with the very friendly owner and the staff went out of their way to accommodate me. Especially loved my breakfast on the veranda overlooking Nelson. Highly recommend and will be back as soon as I can :)

Adore this place so much it's my home away from home when in Nelson. Get the deluxe super duper room for the mix of view and spacious luxury. All refurbished old world from velvet curtain totally 9ver the top wallpaper, 4 poster wooden bed posts to the chaise lounge chairs! Shared bathroom and kitchen but it's so select and quiet it's like up market flatting with that hippy flair. Bring bath bomb as it's a claw footed enameled cast iron old fashioned deep huge bath tub with chandelier! Just down the road is the Sprig and Fern pub, again atmosphere and old style. Limited menu but order the best fish and chips next door and they will deliver it to your table... perfect with a cold stout! Close to centre of NZ for an early morning walk, the gardens, art gallery or quant walk around to see the lovely villas and river. Perfect spot always amazing service when booking.

I stayed in three of the rooms at Fellworth House and they were all palatial, beautifully appointed with antique furniture and chandeliers. There is even a chandelier in the bathroom! All rooms have soaring ceilings and original, finely crafted windows. Room 2 has excellent views over the city and harbour, best in winter as the sun shines in all day. Room 1 faces west, so it gets afternoon sun and sunset views, it also has a stunningly comfortable gold and pink armchair. Room 3 is the largest (they are all large!) and perfect for hot summer days with its cool southern outlook onto immense and ancient trees. As only single occupancy is permitted, there is a stillness and tranquillity here that is rare in other accommodation. Aleksandra is a gracious and unobtrusive host, the staff are helpful and friendly, and the owners of this property have been meticulous in their restoration, management and maintenance of this historic and lovely building. It was a great pleasure to stay here.

I booked the modest room. It was nicely located at the end of the hall so was quiet and bright with natural light. The bathrooms were roomy, modern, nice, and very clean. This place is a converted old Victorian so it has some old house noises but very charming. The house is very convenient to downtown, activities, grocery, and restaurants. The shared kitchen and dining area are well appointed and roomy with everything you need to cook for yourself. While I didn't get any response to my emails prior to my stay, they were responsive once I was there. Very much enjoyed my stay here.

I had booked for a group of 7 way in advance of our stay. The owner was excellent at answering questions etc. Lovely old house with some rooms having excellent views out over Nelson. Plenty of parking space and quiet location close to everything. Excellent!
