I stayed with Mark and John just recently, unfortunately only for one night. As soon as you walk in the door you can feel the relaxing atmosphere wash over you. They have created a wonderful get away from busy lives. It was fun mingling with the other guests too! Cant wait to come back.

Our stay at this wonderful B&B was everything we hoped for and more. Mark is a very friendly host and he happily shared with us all his knowledge about Nelson and the surroundings. The Garden Room is fantastic and the locality of the B&B makes it so easy to explore Nelson. We will definitely be back!

What a fantastic place. We recently spent three nights at Ah House and had a great time. Mark and John are welcoming and informative hosts and we echo all the other reviews by saying that Mark cooks a great breakfast. The Garden Room had everything we could have asked for and being so close to town makes it the perfect...

Booked into Ah House again for another weekend getaway. This place is just awesome. Mark & John never fail to give the best hospitality and another stellar breakfast. This place is so handy for Nelson town centre and is awesome value for money. We will be back!

This is a beautiful B&B in attractive Nelson. Very friendly hosts. Very nicely decorated rooms and beautiful outdoor garden. Super comfy bed. Lots of pillows. Delicious breakfast will be served on the terrace, if weather conditions permits it. Hoopgood's restaurants and Main St. just 5 minutes away. Highly recommended.

Mark and John are great hosts, fun and friendly and Mark's attention to detail is exceptional. The Garden Room is spacious and extremely comfortable and we loved eating Mark's delicious breakfast outside our room. The location, only a 5 minute walk into town, was perfect. We stayed for only 2 nights and left feeling it was too soon!

My husband and I just finished up a 2-week trip in the South Island with a 3-night stay in the garden apartment at the Ah House, and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Mark and John were so welcoming and helpful, and gave us great ideas for things to do in and around town. Thanks to their suggestions we...
