Reviewed January 27, 2014

Great location with fabulous views, spotlessly clean and very friendly hosts. Much better than staying in a hotel and we could not find any fault whatsoever. Breakfast was excellent. We would recommend Atholwood to anybody. Jan and Paul

During our six weeks' holiday in New Zealand this was the most luxurious. Originally we had booked the gatehouse (which also looked very nice) but the hosts offered us one of the rooms on the first floor with a great view of the lush and well-kept garden and the bay with plenty of birds. We truly enjoyed everything (best bed in NZ), the interior design of room and bathroom, and the homemade breakfast around the dining table. Sarah preparing the food and Ian giving advice about what to do and see, and even helping with the parking of the rented car. Add to this extra cake and good coffee. We would have like to extend our stay, but unfortunately it was fully booked the next day, and we were so busy hiking in the Abel Tasman National Park that we did not have enough time to truly get the benefit of our time there.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor had great views, but the gatehouse also seemed charming and the kitchen...

A superb find in a great location with a warm welcome.
We stayed in the gatehouse with our 2 kids. We were welcomed with a walk around and a fridge full of lovely local supplies. The rooms were clean, tidy and well appointed. The location perfect in lush gardens and well located midway between Nelson and the Abel Tasman.

Highly recommended.

Atholwood is the most brilliant place to stay. The hosts, Sarah and Ian were so welcoming. Our king-size suite, with a balcony which overlooked the garden and estuary, was stunning. It sparkled with cleanliness and the bed was so comfortable, with linen as smooth as silk. Everyday we arrived back to find a delicious homemade cake in the very spacious suite. The garden has a huge variety of flowers and we could wander around the paths and down to the shoreline jetty. The salt water pool and spa were also available for our use along with a BBQ. There is everything you could wish for nearby...boat trips, bustling Nelson, Abel Tasman National Park, wineries, restuarants and then come back to the tranquility of Atholwood.

Atholwood, was just what we needed. A perfect little hideaway. A beautifully well maintained, very clean country home. We were welcomed by the owner and her very cute puppy and after speaking with her briefly she made us feel like we were not just guest but friends. Everyday we received complimentary cake, which was very delicious every time. The grounds are immaculately kept and great for outside picnics. Atholwood, is simply an amazing accommodation .

Atholwood is a secluded serene luxury retreat. Down a country road easily accessed from the highway, we were greeted warmly by the owners and treated like friends throughout our stay. The accomodations were beautiful! We stayed in the apartment suite with panoramic views of the impressive gardens and estuary. We enjoyed watching the impressive tidal changes and spectacular sunsets! The rooms had modern furnishings and were impeccably maintained. We loved the gourmet breakfasts and the company of our hosts. This is a great jumping off point to explore Abel Tasman Park and the wineries of the Nelson Region.

We couldn't be happier with this hotel. Friendly welcome, gorgeous room, their own vineyard and apple orchard... with a hedgehog! when we arrived the view was a marsh, beautiful but the real experience was to see the tide come up and fill the estuary, what a breathtaking experience. Go!
