Kershaw House Boutique Accommodation
Ranked #3 of 6 Richmond B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We really loved staying here on a road trip around New Zealand. Pete and Jill were fantastic hosts and we would have loved to have stayed for longer. Indeed, we'd love to come back some day! The rooms were beautiful, the breakfast delicious and the atmosphere immediately makes you feel right at home. We were four and they even let us invite in two friends of ours from home (who live half the year in Nelson) for pre-dinner drinks. It was a luxurious stay that will live long in the memory, just how a B&B should be!

Pete and Jill are excellent hosts and very accommodating. We were there only 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. There wasn't time to enjoy the outdoor hot tub and gardens. Our room was large, clean, and very comfortable with beautiful bedding. We walked to nearby restaurants for dinner and spent the day at Abel Tasman Nat'l Park. Pete cooked a lovely breakfast each morning and was able to give us loads of suggestions about what to see as we drove east to Blenheim. I was able to wash a load of clothes in the laundry room off the kitchen -- a blessing at this point of our trip. As we left Pete gave us a DVD of the highlights of NZ that he had filmed. All in all a relaxing stay in a lovely craftsman style home.

Room Tip: We had the largest room which was located across from the hall refrigerator

Pete and Jill went above and beyond anything we could have ever expected. When arriving into Nelson, our luggage was left behind in Auckland. When it arrived, Pete drove us back to the airport himself so that we saved the cab fare. We also faced very bad, rainy weather so he arranged with our bike tour to have the bikes delivered to the hotel so that we didn't have to ride quite so far. Finally, he took us to our bus the next day saving considerable cab fare. Jill was also a joy, preparing a outstanding breakfast each morning and making sure we had plenty of treats on our coffee tray in the room. This hotel is a boutique b&b at its finest, with the most comfortable beds and owners that truly care about their guests comfort. Outstanding stay and so far the highlight of our trip!

Kershaw House has a wonderful atmosphere - it is a large house with great character, and Peter and Gill who run it, complement that with their own personalities. We arrived early, and found a very pleasant cafe just up the road that is only open at lunchtimes, so that was a good find. Peter was a star at giving advice on where to go, and we ended up eating at the Appleshed and the Boatshed, as well as strolling along the wonderful beach at Rabbit Island.
Peter also pointed us to the World of Wearable Art which we found fascinating, and then we strolled around the car museum - what an amazing collection of beautifully restored cars! We spent the whole morning in both places. and were delighted that he gave us that advice.
Peter and Gill are very attentive hosts, and the breakfast selection is very good - and as you breakfast, Peter can give you lots of valuable advice about where to go for your day.

Agree with all the positive comments. Well-appointed, clean rooms; comfortable beds and very personable hosts. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Could walk to decent restaurants in the town after a day's activiites. Found it convenient for exploring Abel Tasman.

Enjoyed a wonderful stay here. Being April, it was the end of the tourist season and we were the only guests for the few nights we were there. Hosts (and George the dog) were very welcoming and tasty breakfasts were served each morning. Very helpful info was provided about wineries and other sights in the region. Would love to go back if in the area again.

This Bed and Breakfast was a lovely place to stay. The hosts were very personable and friendly, and offer advice on local amenities and trips. The bedrooms are comfortable and clean. The place is very cosy and luxurious. They were fine with late arrivals - some of our party were delayed till half eleven pm due to a road closure, but this was ok. The little dog is lovely and friendly! I would definitely stay here again.
