Heather is a very welcoming host, she prepared the most delicious breakfast, the fruit salad in particular. There is pleasant café too. The B&B is close to all restaurants yet very quiet and peaceful next to the river.

Thank you for taking the time to add a review for Sussex House. We are certainly lucky to live in Nelson and have access to all the local fresh fruit and berries...So happy you enjoyed it.

... on the way to the Center of New Zealand: Charming atmosphere in- and outside. They offer coffee and sweets (we've savoured two slices of a lemon cake) to guests just from the road till 3 o'clock in the afternoon.

Lovely house and very comfortable. Walking distance to town. Breakfast was served in the lovely front dining room where they do morning teas and lunches. Very close to the bontanic gardens and a lovely place to spend time.

We had a great stay at Sussex House. The rooms were immaculate and very comfy. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit from the market. Heather provided great advice of what to do in the area with our family and went out of her way to help us. Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed before and after our visit to Abel Tasman. Heather is amazing! Very helpful and accomodating and the breakfast was delicious! The was very spacious with its own little out door seating area which looks over the river. Very close to all the shops and a supermarket just five minutes walk. Would definitely stay again!

We loved our stay here. Our hosts Heather and Rob were warm and welcoming and the rooms comfortable with great linen and beds. Breakfasts delicious, and we particularly appreciated the BBQ on our last night there and the care and thoughtfulness that went into it. We definitely recommend Sussex House!

The Sussex House, a stately character home built in the 1880s, is an incredibly elegant B&B located next to the Waimea River in Nelson. Heather, the delightful owner, has an amazing collection of European furniture throughout this grand home. The well-tended gardens are another stunning feature. Recently, The Sussex House added a restaurant that serves scrumptious cakes, scones and other...

The location is excellent--all the important sights in Nelson are within walking distance, including the restaurants. But the hostess isn't exactly the friendliest, and seems to have a bit of an attitude. She also "didn't know" about the water taxis in Abel Tasman and tried to steer us towards going on an organized trip to the park--good thing we didn't...

Great location with river, gallery, gardens, city attractions all within walking distance but still so very quiet for a good nights sleep. I would return to stay here again if I am lucky enough to be returning to sunny Nelson!

Nelson's botanical gardens neighbor our property, and the Suter Art Gallery is less than a 5 minute walk. We are also a mere 1 km walk to the Centre of New Zealand. As of February 2014, Sussex House is under the ownership of Heather D'Arcy. ... more   less
