We recently spent 7 nights at the lodge. Great hosts, amazing views, huge breakfast and very much appreciated two lounge chairs being set up in our room due to our longish stay. In hindsight, I would recommend Parautane Lodge for a 1-2 night stay, probably no longer. Seven nights in a B&B that doesn’t provide a communal lounge area for relaxing in or any internal kitchen facilities, was too long for us. We ended up having an early (5pm ish) dinner most nights in the city after a day out rather than having to drive back into town from the lodge and that became an irritation towards the end of our stay.

The lodge is about 4mls out of Nelson, high up a track with magnificent views from the large decking around the bedrooms. Perfect place to lie back and read or take a glass of wine. It is quiet and relaxed and yet within good reach of Nelson centre. Bedrooms are well equipped and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is excellent and the hostess, Candice is very helpful. The Saturday market is well worth a visit. Nelson is a bit sprawling, merging into other small towns and getting to Coromandel is a treck. The clouds spoilt the sunset!

The Parautane Lodge is a beautiful hilltop B&B with a fantastic view of Tasman Bay. Candace is an amazing host and instantly makes you feel welcome. The room was spacious and perfectly furnished with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The en-suite bathroom was modern and immaculately clean. There is a spa available to guests which has a spectacular view of the surrounding region and brilliant night sky. The breakfast was sensational with fresh baked muffins and homemade bread to accompany a full hot breakfast made to order. Absolutely worth a visit and we are sure to return again!

We stayed here for four nights in December and it was a highlight of our 3 weeks in New Zealand. The views are stunning - during the day and at night. The food is delicious - especially the homemade muffins and banana bread! But what makes this place so special is the family - they are so kind and attentive and go out of their way. We will definitely return if we are back in Nelson - which we really hope to be!

The good news - the hosts are very nice people, lovey linens, muffins waiting on arrival. The bad news - our room overlooked the driveway which gave us a lovely view of a camper and some cars and the soundtrack of the trash when they were emptying bottles. Not what you imagine when you hear the word Lodge. But the view from the house is spectacular up above the Bay.
