Reviewed 24 January 2015

Beautiful garden on the hill slopes overlooking the Tasman bay at Mapua. Spacious facilities and a splendid host in Lis. We had a very tasty breakfast and avo tea. The bed was simply the best for a good nights sleep. The wharf at Mapua was a buss with live music and great food.

excuse the title.. too easy .. but we're not crazy cat lovers and this B&B was really first rate. We (partner and 2 teenage daughters) booked both rooms and ensuites and they were both incredibly comfortable - beds were better than our own or any upmarket hotel. Beautiful small touches - slippers, a little plate of home made cake draped...

This small B&B is the perfect place to visit the Abel Tasman National Park. The rooms are spacious, full of light and have wonderful bath rooms. The garden is a paradise and the views on the bay are spectacular. The host is an outstanding travel planner and has many secrete tips. She can also help you with reservations, so no...

My folks and I stayed with Lis at the Cat's Pjamas for two nights. We had originally booked one room for three people, but as the other room was free, Lis kindly let me use that room at no extra charge! The beds were so comfortable and the food was delicious. Lis was such a help to us with recommending...

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...

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 Cat's Pjamas is the epitome of a well done bed and breakfast. Wonderful hostess, charming house and delicious breakfast!

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!
