Sussex House is a most attractive property dating back more than a hundred years, and very well-situated in Nelson. It has a lovely gracious atmosphere. It is very well set up to provide for its visitors with WiFi, a laundry and a small decanter of port in the room. Our room (Strauss) was comfortable and pretty. Vikki apologised that the television was under repair but we did not need to watch television and this did not bother us. We were glad to have tea/coffee making facilities just outside our room with biscuits and enjoyed the classical music wafting up from the dining room below during the day. A row in the street in the small hours disturbed our first night but that is what can happen in a town at the weekend.
David hosts the continental breakfast and offers his views on a variety of subjects. Vikki and David are, in their somewhat different ways, attentive and benevolent and helpful.

A lovely B and B, beautifully kept and extremely well located for walking into town ( 5 mins) or walking along the river to some beautiful walks around Nelson. Very pretty cottage garden with hanging baskets creates a lovely relaxed and peaceful ambience for the house. Rooms are not big but have everything, including access through French doors to a balcony sitting area, and a lovely little jug of port to enjoy while sitting on the balcony. This is the second time we have stayed at Sussex House and would return again. Very helpful hosts, and David is full of interesting stories of his wild and adventurous life travelling all over the world. All that you would hope for in a B&B experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mozart room and would recommend it.

What a fabulous stay we had at Sussex House. David & Vicky were gracious hosts. Enjoyed chatting with David, whose knowledge and humour was charming. The strauss room was cute, clean and comfortable. The Little bottle of sherry to welcome the weary was delightful.
Yes a beautiful B&B in lovely english like, surroundings with the river right next to the house and the rose gardens on the other side, close to town, and the Saturday Markets, and well worth the price. The weather was perfect to top it all off.

Large Victorian house located near CBD of Nelson. Rooms are not fancy, but comfortable. Rooms are all upstairs. Hosts very gracious and helpful with information of area. Complimentary Port Wine in our room!
