Stayed here for two nights and it was really lovely. It's a historic house with a lot of character. It has all the facilities you could need and is clean and tidy. It's in a great location and is a short walk from the city centre. Would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Nelson!

A return trip to Nelson and Fellworth House. Fellworth is a restored early colonial house situated in an area offering excellent vistas of Tasman Bay. Set up for solo travellers, with a bias towards the ladies. Fellworth is somewhere between a hostel and a boutique niche hotel. Located within a leisurely 15- 20 stroll of the city centre. Large clean... More

Beautiful historic house, well refurbished and tastefully decorated. Wonderful views of Nelson and the sea from some rooms. Shared bathroom and kitchen is spotless. A very good choice for the budget traveller traveling alone.

This is a lovely place to stay. The best hostel I've ever stayed in. Big and clean room with nice view. The facilities are also really good and clean. I was glad to go back to it at the end of each day as it was very relaxing. It is 10 mins walk from the bus stop.

The historical factor alone was enough to have me book a room at Fellworth. But then the cozy bed and room, open kitchen with outdoor patio to lounge in the sun, delicious free breakfast, free wifi, and nice hosts all made the stay fantastic. I'd definitely stay here again! It's only a 5-10 min walk into town, with a grocery... More
