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.

From the moment we rang the bell we were looked after by Val and Wayne at this beautiful period house on a quiet, pretty street and just three minutes walk from the best restaurants in Nelson or 10 minutes walk to the pretty Maitai valley. The rooms are lovely, spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were a treat with great variety. Val... More

Absolutely adorable place. Very cozy, exquisitely decorated. I loved the way the set up the sheets in the bed so you can be as comfortable as you want wothout using a heater when it is cool. Excellent attention by the owners. Breakfast were fabolous. Highly recommended for a romantic escape.

Val and Wayne are very welcoming hosts, cooking up the most delicious breakfasts each morning. We were lucky enough to stay in the Loft room, which was spacious with a balcony and great views. Thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and including hand-quilted blankets, it was a real treat to stay here to top and tail our Abel Tasman walk. Very close... More

We were surprised with an upgrade upon checking in! This was a unexpected pleasure. The attic room was fabulous. The bathroom was huge with a stand alone tub (awesome). There was a separate area with a table and desk. Also had a walk out patio with chairs and table that offered a great view of the town. The yard was... More

Wayne and Valerie are to be congratulated for their fabulous B&B: gorgeous grounds and interior, awesome food and gracious hospitality. We would recommend this B&B—a walk away from the heart of the charming town of Nelson-- to anyone, without hesitation. And don't forget to walk one of the Able Tasman cliff walks!

Val and Wayne very helpful, hospitable and knowledgeable. Their place is lovely and spacious, clean and great breakfast too. Interesting to chat to other guests - felt like a family weekend. Great restaurants close by and Saturday market not to be missed if you are there at the weekend. Great place to spend a few days!
