We were a group of 4 adults and 2 young children and we stayed in the Gatehouse for one night on our way through the region. The location is out of town but very easy to find and close to the main road. The accommodation itself was absolutely spotless, the bedrooms were very comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped and the...

Arrived here straight from Hong Kong. Made to feel very welcome even though we were only staying overnight. Good advice on places to eat, wonderful views and beautiful garden and grounds. Sarah and Ian were very welcoming and informative.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Altholwood and wish we could have stayed longer. Sarah was a great hostess and pays incredible attention to detail in managing the property and our holiday experience. The garden-like grounds at Atholwood are amazing and creates a quiet, peaceful environment. We stayed at the gatehouse apartment - and found the accommodations to be...

Stayed 3 nights with family over Christmas in the gatehouse apartment. The property is clean but has no extra features to make it special, especially over Christmas. The gatehouse apartment is really two apartments with a common outside staircase which is not really a problem as our kids are 17 and 15 but would have been if they were say...

It is Fair that everyone is allowed to have their own opinions, but sadly we feel that this review has been unfairly reviewed. The details in regards to the accommodation are all listed on our website and with agents and we don't claim that the Gatehouse Cottage has sea views, but it has its own private garden and patio area...

We really enjoyed our two nights at Atholwood. Sarah and Ian are so friendly, welcoming, and informative. The rooms are really spacious, private, and exceptionally clean. We loved the view of the bay and watching the tides roll in and out. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

Most people travelling in NZ are hopping from one place to the next with quite a lot of luggage. You need space to spread out and to re-muster your stuff......and to relax. Sarah and Ian have thought all that through! We stayed here slightly longer than our 2/3 night average - 4 nights - and so glad we did! The...

We stayed for two nights so we could enjoy the abel tasman national park. The accomodation was beautifully presented in a stunning setting. Breakfast was great and the owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. We'd definitely come back in the future!

We stayed 3 nights with Sara and Ian in the self-catering appartment but still had breakfast with them. Excellent accomodation to a very high standard. Wonderful views over the bay. Very helpful knowledgable hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

The name of this inn is correct: this truly is a luxury accommodation in the country, not far from Nelson, and close to the Abel Tasman National Park. Beautiful scenery, large and luxurious accommodations, and the welcoming and gracious hosts make this a special place to stay. Our only regret was that we were staying only one night in this...
