We finally got to meet a year later when we were able to rebook our 17 day vacation. We stayed at Cats Pjamas for three nights and...

Thanks Paul and Corrine for enveloping our home in your warmth and love of life and sense of humour....and I enjoyed the odd guitar riff coming out of your room. Safe travels and may you have many more successful gigs!

I stayed with Lis and Chris for just one night but I'm very happy to say this is the best bed and breakfast I've stayed in. I was made to feel very comfortable and Lis went well out of her way to make me feel welcome. Truly went above and beyond what I would expect any B&B owner to do...

We certainly made a good choice to stay at the Cats Pjamas for four nights over Labour weekend. Our intention was to cycle and see as much of the Nelson/Tasman area as possible. Our fantastic host, Lis was instrumental in making sure this happened. To Lis, thanks so much for everything you did for us. Lis, your home is superb...

Just a quick note. For some reason Christine's review is listed under "friends" leaving reviews. Whereas Christine was certainly a friend by the time she left, we had never met before her stay at Cats Pjamas B&B. Regards, Lis

We stayed at the Cat's Pjamas recently and had a really great time. The room and bed were extremely comfortable, the facilities top notch, and the provisions the best. The breakfast was really tasty and healthy and something to be recommended. A big thanks to Lis from Ian & Huda Melsom.

Hi Julia - thanks for taking the time to write a review. I thoroughly enjoyed your brief stay - the best part of running a B&B is all the quality people I meet and the interesting life stories I hear. I hope to see you up this way again some day. Warm regards, Lis

Lis made us feel welcome the whole time we spent there, she helped us with places to see around the area, best of all was the fantastic breakfasts she cooked for us, which more than set us up for the day.

From the arrival welcome to the quality and freshness of the house, everything about the stay exceeded expectations. The beds were comfortable and everything was beautifully clean and fresh.
