My husband and I spent three nights at this wonderful B&B while on vacation in New Zealand, and we loved it. Close to the town of Nelson, the Cats Pjamas is a great place to stay! The owners, Liz and Chris have a beautiful home and surrounding gardens and orchards. They grow all their fruits and vegetables organically and Liz...

Dear Uncle Erik and Aunty Hillery, I'm delighted my staff pulled out all the stops and made your stay a happy experience for you. However, since it's all about me, I'm even more delighted that you gave me such a glowing review - I rarely get mentioned by name which is such a shame since I'm obviously the only reason...

My wife and I travelled to Nelson to cycle the Great Taste Trail for 3 days. We spent 2 nights at Cats Pyjamas. We hired bikes at Nelson Airport and cycled to Mapua. As the B&B is located just outside of Mapua (in Bronte), the owner Lis came and collected us along with our bikes at Mapua wharf. Prior to...

We had a great stay at the B&B Cat's Pjamas. The rooms were fantastic. They had a good size, were really clean, good bed, good bathroom!

Cat's Pjamas was my number one B&B in NZ. Stayed four nights. It is perfectly located to visit Abel Tasman national park and the Golden bay and Nelson. The bedroom and bathroom were large and very clean. Every morning another wonderful and well tasting breakfast was served on the balcony with a beautiful view on a downhill estuary. I loved...

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review :-) I thoroughly enjoyed your visit and our conversations. It's lovely hosting people travelling alone because somehow we get to know you a little bit better than more self contained couples. Blessings to you in your onward journey. Lis

The Cat's Pjamas is the epitome of a well done bed and breakfast. Wonderful hostess, charming house and delicious breakfast! We traveled around the South Island for over 2 weeks and this was our favorite stay. The location of the B&B is fantastic, a short drive to Abel Tasman and Golden Bay (where I assume you will spend most of...

We have been travelling all over New Zealand and this is by far the best B&B we stayed at. Lis runs her B&B with great passion, the rooms are fantastic and her organic breakfast is to die for…… We felt privileged to spend a couple of days at such a magnificent place. Thanks!

Thank you so much for your high words of praise but I'm uncomfortable with being named the best B&B in New Zealand :-) I do my best but have off days like everyone else. Having said that - I'm delighted that your experience was so positive. Tia was asking how you were doing by the way!

Our accommodation was arranged for us by the hosts whose party we were attending. From Marlborough Sounds and Wellington, four of us had no prior knowledge of this beautiful B&B so it was a pleasant surprise to arrive at such a peaceful and charming house. Set in secluded park-like surroundings just off the main road, there is no traffic noise...
