Located in a quiet garden setting along the Maitai River in downtown Nelson city, this modern' VictorianCottage' B&B offers 1 enchanting room, genuine Kiwi/Canadian hospitality and fabulous gourmet breakfasts.After 21 years in the 'big house' at 51 Domett we downsized to our cottage at 52 Domett Street, but enjoy B&B so much that we are only semi retired. Our home is designed to be environmentally friendly, faces north allowing the guests to enjoy the morning sun through their French doors which opens to their private patio. Canadian Chef, Janet Southwick ensures that breakfasts are always a treat with blueberry baked French toast, specialty omelettes and frittatas.

You know you've found somewhere special when you wish you had booked longer! Friendliness of welcome which made us feel like one of the family. Gorgeouse homely guest accommodation and scrummy breakfast. What makes this place stand out are the hosts and their relaxed approach.

Thanks for your kind review. Yes the Baywick Inn has downsized and we are running just one room now, but offer all the same service as before. Our location has only changed in the fact that we are 'behind' the original Victorian house in our "Victorian ' inspired cottage. We have great views down the brook at breakfast and yes if you wish Jazz will join you anytime, or he can easily go to 'his room' if you don't like dogs.

We were delighted to have stayed at the Baywick Inn and I'm sure you will be too if you choose this BnB. It's in a lovely location by the Matai river yet only 20 minutes walk into the centre of Nelson, with all its shops and restaurants. Very convenient also for Queen's Gardens

After 3 months of traveling Auz and NZ and after a week around Nelson (and few disappointing B&B here), we found Baywick Inn. I wish it was sooner. If you can - book it. One of the nicest one I've ever been and possibly the nicest one of all in Nelson city. Great location,
