We stayed in Chart House Upper Deck. The view was unsurpassed but unfortunately the weather for our 2 day stay was overcast and raining. However the accommodation made up for the bad weather and the owner came to see us and was very helpful with suggested activities. There was also a compendium of useful information about the area and eating... More

Booked this on the spec and was not disappointed. The view from the Lookout is to die for. A friendly host and the rooms are cosy. Will be back. The rooms are warm and quaint. It is well located and s good spot to launch from.

Had a fantastic time at The Wheelhouse Inn with our family during August 2016. Stunning views, second to none. Friendly welcome from Ralph and all amenities you would ever need, home from home!. If we return to Nelson NZ we'll be sure to stay at The Wheelhouse Inn again, many thanks.

after a 7 hour drive up to Nelson, we arrived to find only one double bed when we asked for a second one and was said it would be put in free of charge which was not done. we believe the bed sheets were not cleaned prior to our arrival as there was still long black hairs from previous people...

We had two wonderful nights at The Charthouse- Main Deck and wished we were staying longer. The owners have thought of everything you could need. The apartment has an absolutely stunning view that can be gazed at for many hours. Breakfast in the sun, on the deck, was a wonderful way to start the day. The amenities are very comfortable...

We stayed in the Charthouse Main Deck, seen in many of the photos loaded by other travellers. I could have just stayed looking at the view all day. Even on a rainy August day, we sat in the warm living room and watched the sky change colours and the activity in the bay. Nelson is a very chilled town with... More

We have absolutely everything we needed. there were lots of little touches that made is even more special - Plunger coffee instead of instant - heaven. We had been in a... More

I absolutely recommend The Wheelhouse, in particular the "Crows Nest". We only stayed for 1 night, but could have easily based my family of 4 there more than comfortably for a week or so. The facilities are clean, well maintained & the attention to detail is second to none. The views from the "Crows Nest" are breathtaking.

This place is absolutely amazing. The views are incredible from the panoramic windows in the living room, from the deck and the large windows in both bedrooms! Fully self contained, you can cook yourself dinner or take the very short drive into town. Or if you prefer the walk or bike it's only around 4k to hardy street. The accommodation... More
