We stayed in the Cowdrey Apartment for 3 nights and loved it: wonderful balcony with a beautiful view and the rooms were spacious and extremely clean with a good kitchen.

We had a wonderful 3-night stay at Atholwood! Sarah and Ian have created a classy, contemporary vacation oasis on their Tasman Bay property. The room and en suite bathroom were tastefully elegant. The grounds and gardens were lovely. Breakfast was always delicious, as was the nightly treat left in our room! We hope to be back!

The hotel is a relatively new development, in a quiet spot off the main road. The entrance is secluded and the front garden is a delight of both light and shade. The main block has two rooms, all self-contained, upstairs with lovely views of the bay and the mountains behind the town of Nelson. The rooms are light, airy and...
