We splashed out and stayed in The Loft which gave us a large wonderful covered balcony with views across Nelson to the sea. Great attention has been given to a vibrant and quirky interior design. Thank you also to Wayne and Val for looking after our car and bikes while we were away on the Heaphy track.

Wayne and Val were wonderful hosts and their home is beautiful with incredible artwork from local artistians throughout. The breakfast each morning was a great way to start off our day, especially the hot breakfast. The location was very convenient and easy walking distance to the town center. The Saturday market was one of our highlights while in Nelson.

Wayne and Val are lovely hosts and the breakfasts are beautifully presented. The location is convenient for access to the small town centre and the parking is adequate. I realise that the property has a high overall marking by others as indeed this influenced my decision to book it. However my marking is a reflection of the pricing which I...

Thanks for your lovely comments. On the price front, you are correct that our pricing reflects the local market for inner city accommodation during peak season. Please also bear in mind that our pricing is "all inclusive" and that everything on top of the room does not incur extra charge, as is the case with most hotels and motels. Travel...

I have stayed at Shelbourne Villa before and loved it so I didn't hesitate to book it when I returned to Nelson. I stayed in a different room this time and it was lovely. I can't speak highly enough about this place. The location is perfect, right in town but on a very quiet street. The house is a beautifully...

We stayed here in for one night of our trip and it was by far the nicest place we stayed. The B&B is easily within walking distance to the center of Nelson. The rooms are extremely clean and are just bursting with character, with various decorations and ornament, books and board games, yet are large enough that it doesn't feel...

We stayed in the garden suite. It's very private and lovely. The house is very close to town and a quick walk to restaurants etc. Wayne and Val are great hosts and you can tell they take wonderful care of the property. Breakfast is great - Wayne does a different hot main dish every morning. We would definitely stay here...

Ohhhhhh what's not to like about a stay at Shelbourne Villa? I booked this many months ago (because this is a very popular place to stay in nelson and books up quickly) as my partner and I were doing the Abel Tasman walk before. I knew we'd want somewhere comfortable and luxurious to stay. It didn't disappoint. Rooms were beautiful...
