Sussex House is a lovely accommodation, easy walking to town, restaurants, and galleries and the lovely Queen's Gardens. The charming Victorian house is comfortable and tastefully decorated, breakfast excellent, and best of all Heather is warm, fun, and extremely helpful. It doesn't get any better.

Sussex House exceeded our expectations! Character, comfort and a great location from which to see Nelson. Close to town and galleries and right next to pretty river. Heather has thought of all the small details that made our stay so enjoyable - so wonderful to have a ceiling fan on warm nights! And a delicious breakfast as well. Definitely recommend...

Fantastic accommodation with a very pleasant homely ambience. The whole house is tastefully decorated and lovely proprietors. Very nice locality but still very close to town, pity we were only there for a single night.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your very brief stay at Sussex House. Now you have experienced Nelson for the first time, you will have to return to explore the sights again.

A lovely well presented house, tidy, comfortable and welcoming. Easy walk into the town. Information about the local area available and very accomodating. Located near a beautiful well managed park with friendly ducks!

lovely host, full of local knowledge, we drove up the coast to "split apple rock" it was well worth the detour/drive! The breakfast was "nice", I was hoping for the full monty - alas - no cooked English, but the fruit, cereal & yoghurt, then toast & coffee were plentiful [ I was looking forward to bacon & eggs].

Sorry about not meeting your expectations on the "full Monty" , but our web site is quite explicit about the fact that we serve a full continental breakfast. This includes 5 different kinds of fresh fruit, yogurt, 5 different cereals, tea, coffee, fresh fruit juice and toast.

It was so nice to be in a B&B in town within walking distance to things. The hostess was great, room very nice, and convenient to restaurants, etc. Heather also offered help with finding and recommending sites in the area. Breakfast was cold food, but a great variety and quantity.

Close to the center of town and adjacent to the Queens Gardens, this charming Victorian cottage is owned and managed by Heather, whom we found to be delightful. The house is furnished mostly in nice antiques. There was a good variety of choices in the Continental Breakfast. Our bedroom/ bath was small, but perfectly adequate and quiet. It was upstairs...

We loved it here and would come back again. Loved the motif and Heather was wonderful. Close to town, fairly quiet, and wonderful scenery around the place. It was fun meeting people. Clean and well maintained.

We stayed only one night this time and it was delightful. Heather is a wonderful host, the amenities are very good and the location is very close to town and Queens Gardens right next door. Best choice in Nelson I would say.

Great place to stay. Welcoming owner, nice breakfast. Very close to restaurants- you can walk through Queens Gardens. The rooms are very comfortable and Heather is very helpful, and so is her daughter Briar. Probably the nicest place to stay in Nelson as the house is beautifully furnished and in a lovely area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sussex House is a late Victorian town house (1880) five minutes walk from Nelson city centre. The setting is one of peace and tranquility as our property overlooks the Maitai River. Nelson's botanical gardens neighbor our property, and the Suter Art Gallery is less than a 5 minute walk. We are also a mere 1 km walk to the Centre of New Zealand. As of February 2014, Sussex House is under the ownership of Heather D'Arcy. ... more   less
