Would definitely recommend this b&b. We decide to stay in Nelson for two nights so that we could do a vineyard tour. We saw this b&b online & called to check availability. They gave us the rate we had seen online through TripAdvisor. Which was slightly cheaper than the price they quoted on the phone.
We were greeted by Ray when we arrived in the evening, very friendly host. Our room was well equipped with everything we needed. Had a fridge, tea/coffee/milk/water, iron, toiletries, to, wifi. They offer a laundry service as well for $20 per load washed & dried which we thought was a great idea although we didn't actually use it.
Breakfast was plentiful with continental ready to help yourself to & then they offer you a cooked breakfast as well. Which included eggs, bacon, avocado, tomatoes and hash browns. Tea & coffee of course. The breakfast is served in a lounge area, which has a large dining table all guests sit at together. So it was nice to chat with other guests and hear their travels stories and tips.
The walk into town took around 15mins and there are lots of restaurants to choose from, Plus there is a supermarket about a five minute walk over the bridge.
Our tour guide for our vineyard trip came and picked us up from the Collingwood manor which was great and Ray kindly called us a taxi on our departure so that we could collect our hire car for the next leg of our trip.
There was a huge supply of tourist info in the hallway so if you were short of ideas for the local area just ask Ray or Jules and they will point you in the right direction.

- Boutique Bed & Breakfast. Our five rooms all have king sized beds and there are many original pieces of art and prints in the bedrooms and throughout the house. The cosy lounge with wood burner and heat pump, the veranda and the garden all provide the ideal retreats for quiet moments with a drink and a book or a convivial meeting place to swap and compare your New Zealand experiences with fellow travellers. Conversely, each of our generous bedrooms are comfortable enough to retire to for moments of complete privacy and personal relaxation and, with all the luxuries described above, allow you to be as self-sufficient as you prefer. A delicious full breakfast (continental & cooked), using the finest fresh local and home made produce, is served daily in the dining room, overlooking the magnificent front garden. There surely can be no better place to welcome in each day. ... more less
