“Best B&B in NZ, surely.”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Thanks Lis for your generous hospitality. You offer the best B&B I have experienced: all the comforts one could want, a lovely breakfast eaten overlooking a view (pancakes my favorite); great location, and a stunning property. A highlight for us was being just as happy spending time at the Cats Pjamas relaxing in the garden, swimming in the pool, and lounging on the sofas as leaving the B&B to be a tourist. I might also mention your chocolates, and the coffee just outside our door. I fully recommend the Cats Pjamas. It would be impossible not to be satisfied with your stay! We will be back.

Thanks again,

Marc & Anita

We have ejoyed a wonderful B&B experience at the Cat's Pjamas. The accommodations and property are exceptional and our hosts Chris and Lis have made us feel extremely welcome. The food has been out of this world and we would definitely recommend the Cat's Pjamas to anyone visiting the region.

Room Tip: We have a 2 year old son, Jacob, and so we found Fred's room ideal as it has a separate living a...

Having never stayed in a B&B we had no idea what to expect. Any reservations were quickly dispelled when we were greeted by our hosts, Chris and Lis, who made us feel very welcome. The room was beautifully clean and the ambience of the property was delightful. Little extras such as having the bed turned down and a chocolate treat was unexpected but appreciated. Flexibility of breakfast time was offered. Breakfast on the verandah with a spectacular view was generous, nutritious and beautifully presented. Altogether a very satisfying experience and one we would look to repeat.

Thank you Lis for your wonderful hospitality and great suggestions for a solo traveller. I enjoyed my short break in your comfortable home. This was my first experience of a B & B in New Zealand and would certainly recommend Cats Pajamas to anyone with a taste for lovely organic breakfasts, comfortable room and a friendly chat! I think I have a "feel" for the Nelson region now.

If you're planning for a trip around northern south island, please make sure you consider staying here, you will not be disappointed!

We stayed here for two nights just before Christmas 2011, and we had a wonderful experience at this B&B, it is truly a home away from home. Thank you so much for your hospitality Chris, Lis, you mum, and Tia!
Everything about this place was just perfect, the room (Fred's), the house, the breakfast Lis made, and the stunning view! Lis and Chris were very knowledgeable hosts, they provided us with lots of ideas and information for us to try during our trip there.
Sorry it took us a bit long to write this review, we've been busy during Christmas and the New Year period.

We hope to come back some time in the future, two days seemed too short! :)
