“What an amazing stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

What a wonderful start to our NZ adventure! This B&B set the standard up so high and we only wished that all other places we stayed at were as wonderful. The house is gorgeous, a historic home in Nelson, with easy walking distance to cafes, restaurants and shops. But what distinguishes this place is the warm hospitality of the owners. We felt as if we were staying with friends who loved us.
Jill and Pete, thank you so much for pampering us during the first 2 days of our trip in NZ. You have been absolutely wonderful hosts and do hope to come back.

I stayed here for 2 nights in mid November, 2013. The couple hosting were absolutely terrific, very friendly and welcoming. The mister helped me with my bags to my room which was upstairs (all rooms upstairs). My room had an ensuite bath as do the other rooms as well. The older Victorian style home was very tastefully decorated and the breakfasts were yummy (eggs prepared to your liking). I slept well in a very comfortable bed. A TV was attached to the wall for easy viewing. The hosts had a small dog who was also a welcome treat to us dog lovers. They were located within walking distance to the shopping street and restaurant for dinner. I loved my stay here.

We stayed here April 2013.
What a great weekend stay Pete and Jill are the perfect hosts.
You would have a hard time finding a better B&B in NZ. The entire house is beautifully restored and the guest rooms are welcoming and relaxing. The guest lounge is comfortable and private. Breakfast was tasty and beautifully presented.

Kershaw House was a wonderful place to spend 3 nights. Pete and Jill were extremely friendly, warm, and helpful/informative. The rooms are huge and comfortable. Breakfasts were great and I was thrilled that some gluten free options were available. Pete is extremely knowledgeable about the immediate area and larger region and was great at helping us plan our days. We were given great advice on things to pass up and things not to miss. We had a blast exploring what he calls "the playground" , the region's amazing parks, drives, and wineries. I wish we had time to see more. On our first night we were able to take a a short walk to a great dinner. We didn't spend a lot of time in the immediate neighborhood but there are definitely many walkable options for food, drinks, supplies. A fabulous place to stay.

Can only say what a pleasure to stay at Kershaw House - indeed puts many 5 star hotels to shame - everything about the stay was exceptionally good - the food and presentation
was of particular note, even presented with a DVD of New Zealand as souvenir, again just
superb - even drove me to the coach station to catch an early trip!!

Everything about Kershaw House was superb, Pete and Jill certainly look after you so well and George was delightful! The only downside was we were only there 2 nights due to a hectic itinerary. Pete was so helpful and informative and Jill's breakfasts and home made 'goodies' were superb.
Definitely 5star plus establishment cannot recommend it enough

Thank you for taking time to review Kershaw House, it is a complaint we hear often that people wish they had longer - our region - like so much of NZ has a lot to offer. Hopefully you may choose to revisit again in the future and take the time to spend a little longer in your favourite areas. Warm Wishes Pete & Jill

I was in Richmond for a very dear friends wedding, and I was struggling to find accommodation... Until I found this.

The house is beautifully presented. The room we had was just so comfortable I was thinking of moving in, and the hosts were the perfect balance of attentive and invisible, so while this is B&B, which might scare some people off, I would say think again.

This brings together the best of being in a home and being away at the same time.. And it comes with a delicious breakfast.
Our wonderful hosts even dropped us off at the wedding so we did not have to think about our car for the night.

I would never consider another accommodation when visiting this area.
