This was my second time at Sussex house and I would only stay here when visiting nelson. Everything was wonderful and Heather is the nicest hostess you could wish for. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast first class. As an old villa, the house is meticulously maintained and very clean. Next trip to Nelson will be to Sussex house... More

Ideally placed in Nelson and on the River, with only a short walk to the centre of town, restaurants, beaches etc. Very warm welcome from the owners, comfortable rooms with all the facilities you need and a great breakfast!

My partner booked three days at Sussex house for my birthday. It was the most beautiful, memorable experience ever. The hostess Heather was absolutely lovely and made us feel very comfortable. We woke up to a delicious breakfast every morning and enjoyed conversations with some really wonderful people, who were also guests at Sussex House. Wish we could've stayed longer.... More

It was lovely to have you both to stay. One of the best things of staying at B&B's is that you get to share breakfast with people from all over the world, and share your experiences. Look forward to seeing you back soon. More

I stayed here with my 86 year old companion who was giving talks throughout NZ to highschool children, and found Sussex House on the internet. Even though it was off-season, the owner opened it for us, and we got excellent service, above and beyond! Everything was lovely and the only place for us to stay next time in Nelson, which... More

Heather greeted us at the door and was very welcoming. The central location allowed us to walk everywhere and leave our car. The room was warm and comfortable and ensuite cute . The breakfast was fresh and available when we wanted it.

If you're prepared to go slightly out of your way to enjoy something a little different, with top notch hospitality, marshmallow beds and delicious Continental breakfast in a beautifully restored period property...look no further!

Very attractive house in an excellent location overlooking the river and gardens. 5 minutes walk into the centre of town. Quiet setting even though on the corner of a main road. Heather was charming and helpful. We had a triple room but were only two. With three it would have been a tight squeeze. Excellent continental breakfast

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sussex House is a late Victorian town house (1880) five minutes walk from Nelson city centre. The setting is one of peace and tranquility as our property overlooks the Maitai River. 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
