The historical factor alone was enough to have me book a room at Fellworth. But then the cozy bed and room, open kitchen with outdoor patio to lounge in the sun, delicious free breakfast, free wifi, and nice hosts all made the stay fantastic. I'd definitely stay here again! It's only a 5-10 min walk into town, with a grocery...

The building sits on a hill which is accessed from Milton Street (looking at the hotel from Bridge St the drive is about 40 metres left on Milton St, otherwise you can walk up the steps almost right in front of you). The groundfloor of the building is used as a dentist with the first floor been the hotel. The...

Beautiful historic house set above the city centre which you could easily walk to with in 10 minutes. My room was well appointed & had a stunning view of the city & the sea. Apart from running into what I assumed to be a staff member I did not meet the owners or other staff. Returning late the front door...

I booked this place because it's historic and has character but the experience was rather lacking. There was supposed to be breakfast but then I was informed by a young Japanese girl who appears to be running the place - with the 'assistance' of a seriously annoying kitten -that they didn't do breakfast in "winter". April is not exactly winter...

I stayed here for 3 nights and was impressed by the look of the place and its stunning views over Nelson. It is a bit of a walk up a hill (though still central to town!) and also rather understaffed. I had to make an effort to pay for my visit as the guy on duty said he was new...

Beautiful grand house offering B&B for two nights in January 2013. Found the young duty manager very helpful and the facilities most comfortable. Able to get into the city and visit the Cathedral and meet some friends (who live in Nelson). Would certainly come again if in the city.

We too had an interesting experience at Fellworth House. We arrived in mid-afternoon, no staff in sight, small sign on front desk with our name and room number. We ventured upstairs to room #2, a beautiful corner room on the 2nd floor with incredible views of Nelson and harbor. We would highly recommend booking this room. We ventured into the...
