A Woodsy House
Ranked #28 of 55 Nelson B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 4, 2014

We stayed two nights in the lilac room. The room is big and you have a private bathroom that is located down the hall. You have free wi-fi and the connection is not too bad. Be advised that you have to pay the room cash. We went to Abel Tasman for 2 days and the owner kept our luggages for free which was very helpful. The host was friendly. It is well located if you are by car it is only 5 minutes from the city center. Our experience was positive and we highly recommend this place.

We completed a journey round the South Island, ending in Nelson and had the best stay of all at A Woodsy House. Beautiful old home with lovely interior and furniture. The host was very friendly and helpful, guiding us to places we might be interested in. We had our own bathroom just down the hall from the room and shared lounge (with drinks facilities and TV), and outdoor seating over a lovely view. Just gorgeous.

A truly delightful home, full of charm, beautiful furniture and exquisite decour and artefacts.
Regretfully we only stayed the one night. The welcome was most sincere and helpful...with Shane...simply ...a font of knowledge.Thank you so much. The room ,bed, was utterly comfortable,
A most memorable stay indeed.
To establish that Selena and I had our appendices removed by the same surgeon in Bangor North Wales when we were young children was a remarkable coincidence,,,!!

Room Tip: No preference...they are all charming and functional.

Hosts Selena and Shane made us feel very welcome in their charming, delightfully furnished home. The views of the bay from the downstairs living room and upstairs balcony are stunning.
While hidden away up a tree-lined avenue the house is just a short walk from a convenience store and pub. And with a slightly longer walk you are the heart of lovely Nelson. Would definitely recommend this B&B

Spent two nights here. Bedroom was a good size and the bed was comfortable. WiFi worked fine. Owner was very nice. From the outside you can see mountains in the distance -- great view. Bathroom is down the hall but pretty big. There is also a common room for eating breakfast and watching TV (not a TV in the room as I recall). Overall very clean and cozy, although a bit dated. Nothing wrong with that in my mind, but some people might care I suppose. Downtown/restaurants about a 5 minute drive and there is a good fish and chips place a short walk away. Driving to Abel Tasman takes around 45 minutes.

Really nothing to complain about and well worth the price. Would recommend to others!

The Lilac Room and Topaz both have new televisions in the room . The guest Sitting Room also has a new television which is easy access for The Chrystal Room. Thank you for the review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Woodsy is set on a slope of woods overlooking Nelson and the bay. We stayed for 2 nights in the Topaz room, which was a large room overlooking the wooded entrance. It was furnished in a style suited to the age of the property. We loved the space of the room, which was extremely comfortable. Good tea and coffee is provided in the room, plus access to a fridge in the communal lounge Our spacious bathroom was just ouside our bedroom and consisted of the largest shower I have ever seen, again constructed in a style that suited the house, there was also a claw foot bath. Situated on the same landing as our room was the balcony where we enjoyed a glass of wine watching the sun set over Nelson. We really enjoyed our stay here. Shane made us so welcome, giving us details of interesting places to visits also the route. He was an extremely helpful, considerate host that did everything to make our stay a memorable one. Woodsy is a charming, relaxing B&B that captures you from the start with its eclectic mix of art and furnishings. . Nelson is a lovely area, shops, parks and galleries, all easy to access. I would reccommend a stay, its lovely.

Room Tip: There is a lovely winding staircase to the rooms on the top landing, and Shane is more than happy to...
