We stayed with Mark and John for one night during our honeymoon. Sadly, the weather in Nelson was wet, wet, wet during our stay, but Mark and John's sunny hosting certainly kept our spirits up. Our room (along with separate lounge and patio and own bathroom) was very nice and well appointed and Mark and John provided great restaurant recommendations...

Beautifully appointed private rooms with luxurious furnishings, spilling out onto sunny decks and gardens. Delicious breakfasts presented with the same care and consideration that extends to all elements of this wonderful...

We only stayed 1 night here but wished we could have stayed longer. Mark and John and Bella (dog) made us feel very welcome and looked after us every way, even offering to do my laundry. The accomodation was very spacious and beautifully presented. There was lots of information provided with regards to the local area and restaurants. Breakfast can...

Ah House hits all the right notes; a spotlessly clean, large room with comfortable bed, sofa and chairs with doors out to a sunny terrace in a lovely quiet garden. Just the place to unwind after a busy day's touring. It's only a short stroll along quiet streets and paths around the church to the restaurants in Nelson. Excellent breakfast...

From the moment we first started considering Ah House, through the final moments saying goodbye to our hosts, our experience with Ah House was top notch! Mark and John were exceptionally responsive to our initial inquiry, and we had a nice conversation when we booked the room, during which Mark offered anything he could do to help us plan our...

So very convenient for our family locally and this is the ONLY place in Nelson we will ever stay again! Everything was just lovely. The beautiful house and gardens, one...

The room is comfortable and gardens lovely - but what made the weekend special was Mark and John the lovely hosts. We enjoyed their good humour and warm welcome and the breakfast was delicious (I Particularly appreciated that they catered to my...
