The Moore's are amazing hosts! This was our first B&B experience and we are so happy it was at the Wakefield Quay. First, their home is amazing! Our private room had a private balcony! We were so comfortable! The location is convenient to amazing restaurants too. Just ask Woodie for any advice. She's an amazing cook too! We felt at...

Wow, what an amazing and wonderful time we had here. Just utterly perfect in every way. We will always remember the warm and generous welcome we received from Woodi and John,and the happy, time we had here. We felt utterly at home yet totally pampered. Marvellous views of the bay from the deck and from our bedroom - breathtaking to...

We stayed for about a week during our honeymoon, and it was a marvelous time at the Wakefield Quay House (they say key not kway). Woodi and Johnny are wonderful hosts, and Woodi is great with suggestions of things to do, see, eat, and sip in the area. Woodi and Johnny completely refurbished this Victorian in a cozy, comfortable, well-appointed...

I'm not sure what I can say about this place that hasn't already been said by many others. The house is fantastic, our Bird's Nest room was extremely comfortable, with lovely views over the bay and, best of all, the hosts Woodi and Johnny are wonderfully warm and friendly. Drinks, nibbles and chats at 6, were great fun. Breakfast was...

We started our trip on the South Island at the Wakefield House. Meeting Woodi & Johnnie was definitely a great beginning. They were fabulous hosts, treated us like part of their family and we have great stories and many laughs as part of our memories of New Zealand. In addition to great hosts, the place & location is absolutely beautiful...

Don't be put off by the main coast road running outside this seriously stylish and fun B&B. The traffic, though busy during the day, is very much quieter at night. From the moment you climb the steps up from the road, look out at the glorious sea view and are welcomed by Woody and Johnny, you realise that you've arrived...

We were met by Woody who expected us earlier and was waiting for our arrival. The B& B was beautiful, the hosts so Kiwi friendly and both she and Johnny were a delight. Pointed us in the right direction for restaurants and excursions. Would definitely recommend to all of our friends that may visit N.Z. Loved the conversations over wine...

Memorable doesn't cut it, I can still feel the sun on my face as I soaked it up on the expansive veranda of this charming historic gem found at the last minute. We lucked out and stayed for a few nights, little did we know this would be our favorite spot in all of the places we'd stay in New...

We had a wonderful stay in Nelson with Woodi and Johnny. Nelson is a great place, the views from Wakefield Quay are amazing and the house is beautiful. Most special of all is the welcome you get when you arrive, drinks nibbles and a restaurant reservation "just in case you need one, I can always cancel if you don't" -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Undoubtedly the best seaviews in Nelson! Watch the ships and yachts in the Nelson harbour from the spacious sunny decks with a complimentary glass or two of Nelson wine. This lovely 1905 historic villa has a contemporary interior mixed with antiques and original New Zealand artworks. Queen seaview ensuite rooms, big fluffy towels, flat screen TVs, ipods and docks, and free wi-fi. Superb panoramic sea to mountain views across Tasman Bay and the Nelson Lighthouse, including great sunset vistas. You can swim in the ocean right out front and stroll along the waterfront to The Boat Shed Cafe and Harbour Light Bistro. Rates include hosted complimentary drinks and nibbles from 6 to 7 each evening and a delicious cooked breakfast using the best local produce. We have two cats onsite so we hope you don't have an allergy to cats! Come and kick your shoes off and relax. ... more   less
