We had a lovely stay at Ah House for three nights at the end of February when in Nelson for a family wedding. We stayed in the Garden Suite which was very large with a king size bed, two sofas and two reclining chairs, a dining table, small kitchen, en-suite and free wi-fi. It also had its own private entrance...

Warm welcome, beautiful location, very peaceful setting. Gracious hosts, and delicious breakfasts indoors and out. The location in the city center is ideal, walking distance of first class resaurants and bars.

we wanted to return to the Tasman area for our 25th wedding anniversary. We were lucky enough to be able to book 3 nights at Ah House in Nelson. We stayed in the Garden suite which was lovely, spacious and comfortable with its own en-suite . The room opened out through French doors onto a private garden .It was quiet...

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent trip to NZ, during which I stayed with the incredibly hospitable John and Mark (plus the fabulous Dot and Bella!). Not only did I get to stay in wonderful accommodation , a short walk from the centre of Nelson, but I also got to meet some guests who were visiting the area and staying at...

We were just looking for a nice place to stay, but were we in for a surprise! Ah House is an amazing house in a fabulous spot with even more fabulous hosts. We had our own external entrance down a well lit path with a view out on to a very tidy backyard. When we were not being fed the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Ah House. Mark and John were wonderful to us. We were there over Christmas, and many restaurants were closed, but they made two great reservations for us. Having a 10 course meal at the Boat Shed on Christmas Day was amazing! The Garden Room is quite eclectic, comfortable and really big! We had...

We're so grateful to all the other reviewers for pointing us to the Ah House. They are spot on in their description of both the accommodations and the wonderful hosts, Mark and John. Mark was particularly helpful to us in planning our arrival with great suggestions for restaurants and roads to take or avoid. We stayed in the Garden Room...

Everything you could ever want in a home away from home! Mark and John were fabulous hosts, the room was amazing and the breakfasts were sublime. The decor is beautiful in a old English kinda way, its like being in some exquisite time warp. I felt like a princess the entire time I was there! The location was perfect being...

Quite possibly the friendliest place I've ever stayed! Host Mark couldn't do enough for us, upon finding out we just got engaged, he helped us celebrate with a glass of champagne. The room had everything we needed and more. The bed was extremely comfortable and the location was fantastic, just a short stroll into lovely Nelson. I would thoroughly recommend...

This is the third time we have visited Ah House and it just gets better and better. We have stayed in many other places in NZ and Nelson, and without a doubt this is the best in Nelson. Mark and John always make us both feel welcome and are genuinely happy to see you again. (So is Bella their dog)...
