Only a few rooms, but very clean, tidy and cosy. Our room did not have an ensuit3, but did have a private, sole use bathroom. Excellent hosts provided a very tasty and local breakfast. We did travel in March 2017, but I didn’t realise I hadn’t posted the review!
My fiancé and I stayed at the Baywick Inn recently, and loved the picturesque building, the decadent breakfasts, and the delightful company of our hosts. Our hosts were particularly helpful recommending activities for us to do around Nelson, and were very knowledgeable about the local history.
You know you've found somewhere special when you wish you had booked longer! Friendliness of welcome which made us feel like one of the family. Gorgeouse homely guest accommodation and scrummy breakfast. What makes this place stand out are the hosts and their relaxed approach. Lovely to sit and chat over breakfast. Definitely a first class Canadian/Kiwi combination. Can't recommend this B and B highly enough.
The B&B has changed a bit since we originally booked in that Tim and Janet have moved from the 'big house' to one they have had built behind. Our room was attached to one side of their new property having its own courtyard and entrance, a small lounge area, very comfortable bedroom and superb shower room. Janet communicated the change to us in advance and generously offered us a bottle of Nelson wine in recompense which we thoroughly enjoyed. As did we the decanters of sherry and port provided for your stay! Janet and Tim are lovely people who are very friendly, helpful and attentive to all of your needs and a pleasure to just sit with and chat to. Breakfasts are wonderful with fresh fruit and Janet's maple toasted muesli together with other goodies and a different cooked option each day which was delicious. On the day that we had to leave early J & T provided a superb spread for us to eat in our lounge before heading out. The location is also great within easy walking distance of Nelson itself and many beautiful walks including one taking you to the official centre of New Zealand. It's also an easy drive to get to the Abel Tasman park and other places along the way. We would highly recommend Tim and Janets' B&B PS mustn't forget a mention for Jazz, Tim and Janets' little dog! Lovely.…
Everything about this inn is wonderful, starting with the hosts who were very welcoming and helpful with orienting us, and suggesting activities and restaurants. Breakfasts were delicious! The inn is a short walk from the main shopping/restaurant area and is also close to the Queen's Gardens and the "center of NZ." There was clearly a lot of attention to detail in furnishing the rooms. We stayed in the upstairs or the cottage behind the main inn and it was splendid. Enjoyed the balcony. You can't go wrong here!
