We only stayed 1 night here but wished we could have stayed longer. Mark and John and Bella (dog) made us feel very welcome and looked after us every way, even offering to do my laundry. The accomodation was very spacious and beautifully presented. There was lots of information provided with regards to the local area and restaurants. Breakfast can...

Mark and John have an awesome spot situated right in the little town of Nelson! We had an awesome room with our own deck and private washroom! Our hosts were so accommodating! Breakfast was amazing! Love little Bella the dog too! Best spot in Nelson!

Ah House hits all the right notes; a spotlessly clean, large room with comfortable bed, sofa and chairs with doors out to a sunny terrace in a lovely quiet garden. Just the place to unwind after a busy day's touring. It's only a short stroll along quiet streets and paths around the church to the restaurants in Nelson. Excellent breakfast...

From the moment we first started considering Ah House, through the final moments saying goodbye to our hosts, our experience with Ah House was top notch! Mark and John were exceptionally responsive to our initial inquiry, and we had a nice conversation when we booked the room, during which Mark offered anything he could do to help us plan our...

We spent a lovely couple of nights at Ah house, and would have liked to have stayed longer. The room is comfortable and gardens lovely - but what made the weekend special was Mark and John the lovely hosts. We enjoyed their good humour and warm welcome and the breakfast was delicious (I Particularly appreciated that they catered to my...

How lovely to be met at the airport, so we didn't need a hire car right away. Beautiful accommodation and charming friendly hosts. Invaluable local knowledge. Delicious breakfasts. Nothing was too much trouble. Hope to return one day

Had a wonderful two night stay and totally agree with all the other comments. Location is close to the city centre, it has excellent facilities and Mark and John's hospitality is second to none. Absolutely lovely place to stay. Had the most relaxing time sitting out in the garden having brekkie. Glorious!
