What a lovely place to stay! Val and Wayne made our short stay in Nelson with friends, a memorable one. Lovely rooms,delicious breakfast, friendly hosts, and central to the city. I think it would be very lovely to use the garden during the summer. Would stay again.

We very nearly booked in at the Rutherford, but we are so glad we didn't. The Shelbourne Villa is lovely; it started off our weekend in the Nelson Bays just perfectly. The rooms are very well appointed and have all the extras you would want. The breakfast was a highlight too. The friendly hosts were welcoming and put us at... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in the beginning of August. The room was beautiful, clean, and spacious. I got the room with the jets in the bath which ended up being super handy for hiking recovery. Wayne and Val were very sweet and provided me with great information on activities and general information on the town. The breakfast was... More

This was a repeat visit for me and I was so happy to be going back! Val and Wayne are warm, friendly and accommodating hosts. The house is lovely, beautifully appointed and maintained. Breakfast was excellent and set me up for looking around Nelson and Tasman regions. Shelbourne Villa is only a few hundred meters from the heart of Nelson... More

We were lucky enough to be in the Loft room and even managed a cuppa out on the balcony in the middle of winter! Room most comfortable and very spacious... More

I had a very enjoyable two nights in the loft room of the Shelbourne Villas. The room was very clean and well appointed, with a nice lookout over Nelson. Breakfasts were great and Wayne and Val both went out of their way to be helpful, with lots of good local information about touristic things to do in the area. I... More

OK, so the rooms are beautifully appointed and feature all kinds of wonderful and interesting artwork and objets d'art. There is a lovely guest lounge with complimentary sherry and port. And you are a quick 7 minute walk into the centre of Nelson. But the real reason you stay here is for Wayne's cooked breakfast! We feasted on cheese and... More

We stayed here 2 nights over the Easter holiday. A beautiful home and gardens. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Wayne and Val provided a great breakfast and recommendations about the area. Great setup to do some laundry. Would recommend this accommodation. We hated to leave it was so comfortable.
