Tomorrow morning we will have to say goodbye to Wakefield Quay House - let's hope it's adieu and not goodbye - I'd hate to think we won't return. I've rarely felt as at home as this - and we're on the other side of the world! Woodi and Johnny have been such wonderful hosts and have treated us like valued...

One of the best experiences we've ever had at a B&B. Amazing room, spotlessly clean, comfy bed and incredible view. Woodi is a marvellous hostess, nothing too much trouble, delicious breakfasts and plenty of helpful information. On street parking out the front, wifi and short distance to town and the beach. If you're in Nelson, it's definitely THE place to...

Amazing experience, beautiful location and scenery. Our hosts Woody, Johnny and Helen made us feel really welcome. Breakfasts were amazing and their help with booking us tours and dinners was so good. When Woody booked us a dinner we always got the best seat in the restaurant.

We recently stayed at Wakefield Quay House in Nelson. It was absolutely wonderful. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by Woody the owner on her front deck with the warmest of greetings. Our room was elegant and clean with a gorgeous view of the waterfront. The bed, linen, toiletries and fresh flowers were all divine. After showing us...

Woodi and Johnny are fantastic hosts. Woodi's decorating, attention to detail, excellent local knowledge and assistance to plan local shopping and excursions won't be beaten. We will always remember her delicious breakfasts, the afternoon happy hour on the deck with a view to die for and her wit and humour. And I haven't mentioned the fresh flowers that grace the...

Woodi and Johnny were very warm, friendly and welcoming hosts. They were generous with their company, their wine every evening. Not intrusive but very willing to help guide us around a great city, especially booking dinners are really cool restaurants. Must do boathouse and Hopgoods and walk to the centre of New Zealand :-) definitely recommend!

When visiting the beautiful little city of Nelson do yourself a favour and stay with Woodi and Johnny at the glorious Wakefield Quay House. The view from the deck and balcony is magic and the breakfast fresh and yummy. Woodi aims to please and is full of advice in terms of what to see and where to eat. We thoroughly...

Woodi and Johnny are warm, friendly and helpful hosts in this lovingly restored turn of the century house-by-the-sea. We stayed in the Crows Nest room, which has a lovely balcony/porch with stunning sea views. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spacious. You can see careful attention to detail everywhere -- for example, the makeup mirror in the bathroom...

We had the most amazing Queens Birthday weekend at Wakefield Quay House. We couldn't fault either the beautiful accommodation or the wonderful hosts. Everything was fabulous - our beautiful room, beautiful breakfasts and extremely helpful advice about what to do while in Nelson. The situation of this beautiful villa would have to be the best in Nelson. We can't wait...

Undoubtedly the best seaviews in Nelson! Watch the ships and yachts in the Nelson harbour from the spacious sunny decks with a complimentary glass or two of Nelson wine. This lovely 1905 historic villa has a contemporary interior mixed with antiques and original New Zealand artworks. Queen seaview ensuite rooms, big fluffy towels, flat screen TVs, ipods and docks, and free wi-fi. Superb panoramic sea to mountain views across Tasman Bay and the Nelson Lighthouse, including great sunset vistas. You can swim in the ocean right out front and stroll along the waterfront to The Boat Shed Cafe and Harbour Light Bistro. Rates include hosted complimentary drinks and nibbles from 6 to 7 each evening and a delicious cooked breakfast using the best local produce. We have two cats onsite so we hope you don't have an allergy to cats! Come and kick your shoes off and relax. ... more   less
