Nelson, the geographical centre of New Zealand, is a region renowned for warm sunshine, fine beaches, lakes, mountains and native forests. The City of Nelson is large enough to offer all the services and amenities of a large city yet is small enough to be intimate, welcoming and friendly. With the attraction of fine foods, superb wines, an innovative craft industry, spectacular scenery and traditional Kiwi hospitality and you can understand why Nelson is a place to which holiday makers flock all year round.

  • Lovely accommodation with nice outside space

    Lovely accommodation with nice outside space. Not to far from the town but in a quiet, peaceful area. It was just what we needed to get over the jet lag. Perfect. Thank you

    I loved the location, close to everything, yet in a quiet wide street, great for parking and walking to town or to the river, both about five minutes walk away. The apartment had everything you needed and was really attractive inside and out. It was private even though on owners land. Comfy bed and uber fantastic shower. The kitchen had all you need. Good TV and entertainment system with CD's to choose from. Outside table and chairs to relax in overlooking garden, you had privacy inside and out.

    It was comfortable, centrally positioned, easy to walk to the city and set in a lovely quiet, very pretty, older part of the city. It was a worthwhile and comfortable place to stay and good value for the money we paid. We stayed for over a week.
