Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lovely old house with a quaint sort of charm. Hosts very helpful with ideas for what to see and do. Bedroom and adjoining bathroom both large and well equipped. Loads of storage space which we found lacking in some other places we stayed. Good breakfast with Janet an Tim on hand to chat. Would recommend.

Janet and Tim are wonderful hosts and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. (Tim actually went out and picked up a pizza for us on our last night, and Janet did some laundry for us--very gracious!!!). Janet's breakfasts were absolutely wonderful, always starting with a lovely large bowl of fresh fruit, (which we appreciate so much when traveling), followed...

Hi, thank you for your review, Tim and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here. The WIFI is located in the main house and I am sorry if this caused you an inconvenience, but from our point of view besides breakfast, it was the only other time we got to chat and give you advice on what...

We first stayed at Baywick Inn on our initial trip to NZ 10 years ago - and returned here two weeks ago on our latest trip. It's still an excellent choice for Nelson and the surrounding area. The Inn is gorgeous - lovely architecture and common areas. Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a little deck overlooking the...

Very comfortable room with plenty of drawers to put our clothes in (even expensive hotels seem to think you live out of a suitcase). Friendly and helpful hosts who booked tables for dinner for us. Breakfast was amusing as we were able to chat with other guests who came from all over the world. Nelson is a good place to...

Great hospitality from Tim & Janet. Very helpful about the area. Lovely breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt, home made museli, scrambled eggs, bacon, tomatoes and toast. The complimentary sherry/port was a nice touch. Also the honesty box for beer/wine. Loved the decor/layout I'd highly recommend it.

Baywick Inn is a charming villa restored lovingly, full of Victoriana and native timbers. The bedding is extremely comfortable and the hosts, Tim & Janet, will do anything to assist. Perfect location next to the Maitai River, near to Queens Gardens and the Suter Gallery, and an easy stroll to town or the Centre of NZ. Janet's breakfast frittata -...

We were fortunate enough to stay here over Christmas. The hosts made us very welcome and went out of their way to ensure all our needs were attended to. We were provided with an excellent breakfast each day and in addition a special brunch on Christmas Day, which was superb. We had a wonderful apartment which was very spacious, comfortable...

Reviewed 8 January 2017 via mobile

Wonderful breakfast Hosts could not be more friendly or helpful. The house has a beautiful setting at the junction of two rivers, all night I could hear the river running. However for me I prefer something more modern. Our room was spacious but the toilet/shower was very small as were the steps which is normal in houses of that era....

Thank you for taking the time to review the Baywick Inn. Had we know earlier that you liked a more 'modern house' we could have advised you to book one of our rooms in the 'new cottage' that is at the rear of the property also along the river. One of the 'modern rooms' is located on the ground floor...

We initially booked to stay for only one night at the beginning of our trip, but when our travel plans changed we returned to spend another night here. Incredibly welcoming couple who run it will book great restaurants, taxis, or even perhaps just give you a lift somewhere. The place has character and is very homely; it's spotlessly clean; with...

Three couples booked three rooms here for three nights, Christmas, 2016. It was the perfect venue, from the walk to Christmas Eve services at the Cathedral to the delicious Christmas brunch served by Janet. One couple booked the ground floor apartment in the back of the property, so we had a full kitchen for our own Christmas dinner and gift...
