Mark and John were perfect hosts: friendly, helpful, professional, generous, not intrusive, interested and interesting. The Garden Apartment is delightful; at least as charming as the photos. Excellent linens, very comfortable, very welcoming. The location is excellent for exploring Nelson either on foot or by car. The premises as a whole are beautifully presented, with Mark and John's many collections...

Amazing B&B, Host Mark is extremely helpful, attentive to all details. Back garden is full of well chosen plants, flowers and decorations. Lots of unique details everywhere. Garden view room well furnished, very comfortable. Has no issues during stay, and would return for a longer stay someday. Breakfast was excellent, on garden porch on a sunny morning, and in dining...

We stayed at AH House in Nelson for one night only, but wished we could stay longer. Our room was beautiful with private access to the garden and so tastefully decorated. Our hosts were so friendly, and the service unbeatable. Every last detail catered to our personal requirements. Many thanks Mark and John!

Not often I give 5 stars but this was worth it. Beautiful room, very nicely decorated. Very helpful host who clearly took a lot of pride in his work and a lovely location. his guidance on where to eat was spot on and we really wanted for nothing. even a couple of cold beers and sodas in the fridge. Unhesitatingly...

I stayed at Ah House for 4 nights with my daughter. We had a fantastic time and everything was perfect. You couldn't ask for a better host in Mark. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he really goes out of his way to ensure you have the best time possible. He's very nice guy and interesting to talk...

I'm not sure if this is the best B&B in Nelson as I haven't tried the rest but it would take a lot to better it. The host, Mark, welcomed and helped with the bags. We were shown to a lovely big room with a door onto a patio and garden. There were beers available in the fridge for the...

We stayed for six nights at Ah House and felt we had made new friends. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed and we ate several meals sitting on our sunny deck in the beautiful and entertaining garden. Mark and John made us very welcome and Mark's breakfasts not only catered to our every whim but were beautifully cooked and served....

Hosts Mark and John were most welcoming to their spacious and luxurious accommodation. My room (more like an apartment) opened on to a private, sunny deck in a garden setting. There was such attention to detail, both in the furnishings and in the breakfast itself. For example, home-made jams and genuine English china. The house is located in a lovely...

It was a considerable please to stay at Ah House recently with genial hosts John and Mark in very attractive garden surroundings, totally separate quarters, delightful dog, Belle, and every courtesy.
