I would strongly recommend that you consider staying at Ah House when in Nelson (unless you are homophobic, in which just don't bother). I stayed here for two nights, and it was excellent. The B&B is an easy five minutes walk from the centre of Nelson, but in a quiet street. The guest accommodation is extremely spacious and very well... More

The location is amazing and there is even a dedicated car parking space for guests. Mark and John are the best hosts that you would wish for. They are warm, friendly and genuinely helpful people...

I'm just home from my third trip to Nelson in the last 3 months, each time I've stayed with Mark and John at Ah House. The guys are brilliant hosts, they make you feel incredibly welcome, and have a wealth of local knowledge that they take the time to share. My partner and I are both vegetarian, and Mark has...

We just spent a delightful five nights at the Ah House in Nelson. The Garden Apartment is huge, very well equipped and spotless. The location is perfect and an easy walk to the centre of town. Mark and John are perfect hosts and we felt more like friends than guests. And very reasonably priced!

This has to be an oasis in Nelson; it's within really easy walking distance to the town centre, yet ideally situated to be quiet and tucked away. The accommodation was absolutely brilliant, with everything that we needed plus additions that enhanced the stay. With a very warm welcoming, superb hosting, gorgeous breakfasts and a fabulous (garden) room, this should be... More

This fantastically located BandB offers everything we wanted for a relaxing weekend away. Nestled in a quiet street, this excellent location offers peace and quiet while only being a few minutes walk away from the city center.

We have stayed at Ah House twice over the past 2 years & can thoroughly recommend it. Mark & John were excellent hosts, having the right balance between being attentive, friendly , helpful & welcoming but also giving us our own space whilst staying with them. The accommodation was clean, quiet & convenient with delicious breakfasts.

Our second stay at Ah House. Last year we stayed for one month and this February we stayed again for 4 weeks. Mark and John are the perfect hosts.

We stayed with Mark and John for one night during our honeymoon. Sadly, the weather in Nelson was wet, wet, wet during our stay, but Mark and John's sunny hosting certainly kept our spirits up.
