Gracious Luxury B&B with separate living and ensuite close to city centre
About Allison Guy-Ritchie
My husband and I moved to Nelson earlier last year from Australia. We bought this beautiful villa over 4 years ago and have been renting it out until we were in a position to move in. After moving here in early 2018 we have set up part of our beautiful house to share as a B&B. My husband is a Kiwi and I am Australian. I work part time in a community role and we run the B&B the rest of the time. We have 2 retired greyhounds called Robbie and Berlie who are part of our family. We have children and grandchildren in Hamilton New Zealand, Perth, Melbourne and Norway. We love living here and thoroughly enjoy sharing this beautiful city and our lovely villa.
Allison Guy-Ritchie purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2015
Why Allison Guy-Ritchie chose Nelson South
We had never planned to live in Nelson when we retired. We had actually purchased land in Coolum on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland with the view to build and run a B&B there. However we have always loved Nelson and were here on a short getaway weekend when we saw this so we bought it, sold our block in Coolum and here we are. Everything is so right about this place and we love it!
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
We love the big rooms, the wrap around verandah on both levels, we love the beautiful timberwork inside and outside the house; the garden is just right; the little features of this beautiful old home is just what makes it so lovely. It is close to town and we love being able to walk in for a meal or a drink at the pub. We can walk Robbie and Berlie our retired greyhounds everywhere and have them accompany us for a meal out.

Lovely space to relax; oozes charm!
The accomodation was lovely and private and had everything we could possibly want, with only a short walk to anywhere we wanted to go. Allison and Chris were helpful hosts and very easy to deal with. We would happily stay there again.
Spacious, well appointed one bedroom unit in an historic house.
Allison and Chris supplied delicious breakfast foods. Everything was thoughtfully done.
Thanks Dana. We hope you enjoyed your stay here and you are welcome back anytime. Allison and Chris
Beautifully appointed self-contained suite has all you need
A delightful apartment, with relaxing living/dining area separated from the very comfortable bedroom... walk in shower and claw foot bathtub are both top quality. The hosts are very gracious and welcoming, making us feel right at home. Easy walk to restaurants and shopping downtown. Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay in Nelson!
Both Laura and Brian are outstanding guests. 100 out of 10 for cleanliness, interactions, and respectfulness. Highly recommended and welcome back anytime!
Comfy heritage unit stay
A comfortable self contained unit in a heritage Nelson house. Generous breakfast provisions and had no problems catering for our dietary requirements. Great location, a short walk away from the centre of Nelson.
Perfect in everyway!
Lovely self-contained suite. Comfortable beds, fresh linens, everything you need to make your own breakfast, including homemade bread. Short walk to downtown, easy on-street parking. Excellent shower (good water pressure). Reliable wifi and netflix. We would stay here again.
