Janet & Tim are truly fabulous hosts & their home is world class. Both so helpful & Janet's breakfasts are amazing!!! We thought their dog Jazz was a great addition too! We will visit again. Highly recommended. Nelson is so pretty too - many places to explore & great restaurants. Linda

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and that Jazz was a hit. I am sure next visit he will want you to take him for a walk up to the centre of NZ! Tim and I both look forward to a 'return' visit, and we hope that you have an excellent overseas holiday. Janet More

It's an absolute gem in beautiful surroundings managed graciously by Janet and Tim. Everything is spotless, giving you the homely feeling you dream of when you book at a B&B. Breakfast is sumptuous and conversation is enlightening. The rooms replicate the ground floor, maintaining the same sense of coziness and comfort. When you are there don't miss the walk to... More

Thank you for your kind review. I too love the walk to the centre of NZ, the view is amazing and as it takes most guests only 20-30min, it is a great early morning exercise, thanks again, Janet More

Nelson is a cozy small town and the Baywick Inn provided us a most comfortable base from which to explore. We stayed in a fantastic room on the second floor of the unattached cottage. A very comfortable luxurious bed, and a spa tub. The main house is a historic landmark with lots of antiques. Tim and Janet are gracious and... More

This B&B is located close to town next to a stream. The restored Victorian also has a new matching building, perfectly designed by owner. The room we stayed in had everything one wanted with clever storage places for suitcases. Breakfast and owner attention were excellent

We had to move from our other B & B as Sussex House was full. Heather recommended the Berwick Inn. Well, we were thrilled with our new 'home' as we had been happy in the previous place.

The house and its furnishings are as warm and inviting as its hosts, Janet and Tim. The breakfast is fabulous, served on gorgeously handcrafted dishes. Our room was comfortable and very thoughtfully appointed. The neighbourhood is peaceful yet only minutes from downtown. We couldn't recommend it more highly!

We stayed only one night (should have booked two!) at Baywick. It's on a quiet street within walking distance of the downtown area of Nelson. Our room on the second floor was large with a balcony, and was equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting in the garden next to the creek. Best of all was the breakfast -... More

The house is a gem. However a rather cool welcome was followed by a real issue. Unfortunately on lying on the beds we all (3 of us) found the smell of the pillows quite unacceptable. Whilst we have no doubt the bedding is washed, the pillows were well overdue for replacing having a stale sweat smell on them all. I... More
