Gorgeous house, super comfortable, and clean. Great value. Great location. The kitchen and bathrooms are well equipped and always clean and not crowded. I really cannot recommend this place enough. Anytime I'm in Nelson now, I know where I'll be going.

I stayed here on short notice and it was a delight. In fact when I needed a place for another unplanned night in Nelson, I went back. It is very comfortable and great for solo travelers. And the property is beautiful.

Strongly recommended. Unique opportunity to stay at a quiet but historic property. Full use of the kitchen. Shared bathrooms, but this was never a problem. Fantastic views over Nelson from the living rooms and veranda.

Stayed here for two nights and it was really lovely. It's a historic house with a lot of character. It has all the facilities you could need and is clean and tidy. It's in a great location and is a short walk from the city centre. Would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Nelson!

Set up for solo travellers, with a bias towards the ladies. Fellworth is somewhere between a hostel and a boutique niche hotel. Located within a leisurely 15- 20 stroll of the city centre. Large clean...

Beautiful historic house, well refurbished and tastefully decorated. Wonderful views of Nelson and the sea from some rooms. Shared bathroom and kitchen is spotless. A very good choice for the budget traveller traveling alone.

Big clean room with comfortable big bed. The shared bathrooms were very clean and nice thick towels provided. The open kitchen was also clean and tidy. Fantastic views across the town and out to sea from balconies, lounge, dining room and some guest rooms. A nice restful place to stay and to come back to after a day spent exploring...

This is a lovely place to stay. The best hostel I've ever stayed in. Big and clean room with nice view. The facilities are also really good and clean. I was glad to go back to it at the end of each day as it was very relaxing. It is 10 mins walk from the bus stop.
