Early 20th century homestead set in bucolic gardens. This is not a b&b but liking staying home and enjoying a most friendly and effective personal service. Moreover there is a fine swimming pool and a tennis court. Rooms are in fact one or two bedroom suites overlooking the bay and featuring a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom with superior bed, large...

I don't often give 5 stars but Bronte is exceptional. We had a separate suite overlooking the tidal lagoon with outside deck. A peaceful oasis a short drive from Nelson near Mapua. Host Margaret met us on arrival and escorted us to the suite. Dinner had been pre booked for us at a local restaurant on the Mapua wharf. Breakfast...

Do I ever miss Bronte! This place was a wonderful oasis of serenity. My husband and my parents and I stayed in a lovely villa with beautiful rooms and an amazingly peaceful view of the water. We could have moved in! The service was also fantastic. Margaret took great care of us, and it was so nice to walk in...

We stayed in the 2 bedroom house at Bronte for 3 nights. Accommodation is spacious , comfortable with full kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 bathrooms, Laundry and sun decks. This is ideal for a family. Beautiful views. Breakfast could either be prepared for you by Michelle in the house or one could eat on the patio of the main...

I cannot decide. I loved our room. It was large, clean (well cobwebs on the patio furniture). Our view was stunning. The breakfast was perfectly ok for a B&B but certainly not what I was expecting from a country estate. It had a tennis court and swimming pool which we did not use. But still a very nice and upscale...

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the riverside suites and would definitely rate this as excellent. The suite was spotless and roomy and all of the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was really good and the staff even booked us dinner reservations in case we wanted them. Even though it rained constantly for two days the area...

Don't believe the ratings on this place. We thought this was a 5 star place and so disappointed. The place had a mold smell that would not go away and the owners just brushed it off. The washing machine was full of grime and the blinds don't offer any darkness. We could not wait to leave. On a positive note....

We do sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Bronte as much as our other guests do and have in the past. We took your concern on the smell in our villa very seriously and apologize that you personally felt as though the owners were blowing the situation off, that was absolutely unintended. Unfortunately after having had searched for...

Located in a complex of apple orchards and vineyards this elegant B&B is a great location to explore the surrounding country side. The suites are large and in detached units of 2 so privacy and quiet are great. The french doors open onto decks located a few steps from the tidal flats and are set among beautiful plantings
