“Charming”
Reviewed 3 April 2007

During our 7-week holidays in New Zealand, we mostly stayed in 4 and 5 star B&B's. Nearly all were of exeptional quality and made our trip
in this beautiful country unforgettable. Of the 19 different lodgings
we had, Te Puna Wai in Nelson was one of our favourites. The Fifeshire Suite on the upper floor was very spacious and comfortable but it was the hospitality and kindness of James and Richard which made our stay one to be remembered. The breakfast was top as was the free internet, which in our opinion nowadays should be present in all
hotels and B&B's. Nelson is a nice town and the views from the house towards the ocean are stunning. This address is top-of-the-bill.

Great location, welcoming hosts, charming atmosphere. Breakfast al fresco was a delight. Free wireless Internet access is a bonus not common in NZ B&Bs. Highly recommended.
