10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay, nice hosts. They even made a birthday cake!
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hands down one of the best B&B’s I’ve ever stayed at, Paul and Jeanine have set the bar very high. First off, it’s a beautiful property with gorgeous rooms and thoughtful design. There is nothing like the morning or evening light coming in through sheer curtains. The owners Paul and Jeanine, were above accommodating even before we got there trying to assist with a wine tour. Paul invited us to pick plums from their tree and they were yummy, even packed some with us for the rest of our trip. The breakfast each morning was great and eating with the vines right next to you was so relaxing. My fiancé fell in love with Truffle and Bacchus, the owners dogs and had a good romp on the property with them. The property is situated close to Ruby Beach, 30 minute drive from Abel Tasman, 30 minute drive from Nelson and close to all the vineyards in that region for tours. Jeanine put together a list of vineyards for us to check out and Paul even made our dinner reservation for us in Nelson the night we arrived. This is beyond service. We stayed in the Chardonnay room which was immaculate, we couldn’t hear a peep from our neighbours and if the owners hadn’t told us there was a full house we wouldn’t have known. The bed was so comfy it was really hard to get out of it the first morning for our sea kayak, also great pressure in the shower and lots of hot water. I can’t recommend this place enough. You will not be disappointed.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place with friendly hosts. Truffle the labrador was a favorite!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed all four nights that we stayed here. Jeannette and Paul were very helpful and they had paid attention to some of the little details we hadn’t experienced on our three week NZ visit. The room was spotless, the bedding lovely, the outdoor area set up with a little table and chairs and a jacuzzis all with a view of vineyards. The WiFi was the best we have had all trip. We could order what we wanted from a continental breakfast menu and it would be delivered at whatever time we specified in the morning. We could even pick apples from their two trees to eat. We would highly recommend Pine Hill Lodge.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: It was stunning. The grounds were filled with grapes and there were fruit trees.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nestled amongst the grape vines, this was amongst the most luxurious places we stayed when in New Zealand this February. It’s not far from Murahau - a spring board onto the Abel tasman trail. The high quality of furnishings and decor, the cleanliness, the care and attention by our hosts was absolutely second to none. I’d have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Our hosts very kindly lent me a tripod to photograph the Milky Way at night but as I didn’t have a remote control shutter release sadly many of my results were inadequate. I would highly recommend this location and would have no hesitation in booking it again.
Cons: That we couldn’t stay longer!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hosts. Selfmade breakfast. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect. The facility is first rate; our hosts are super; the location provides great access to the area. Good restaurants are nearby at Mapua wharf.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Clean kitchen and bathroom areas. Good breakfast provided. The man on reception was very helpful. Extra duvets & hot water bottles provided.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great atmosphere. Good staff, nice room, amazing chocolate pudding, good breakfast. Overall a great hostel (we were happy with the parking too).
Cons: The room is really basic. The center is a short walk away. Both not a problem, but nice to know when you book.
10.0 Excellent

6.7 Good

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A bite to the famous chocolate pudding will blow you up high to the heaven~ one is always never enough~
Cons: The pillow is too flat..
7.1 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly, and suggested places to eat and a number for taxis etc. The vibe of the place was friendly with people playing guitar and games etc in the communal areas. There was a big kitchen with lots of space to keep our things. Our room was a very good size with plenty of room for two suitcases and to hang wet coats etc up. The showers, toilets and laundry facilities were good and washing powder was free which is always a bonus for travellers :)
Cons: There were a couple of bugs on the carpet in our room. Both the booking.com description and the host suggested that there would be chocolate cake at 8pm (we were very excited about this..) but when 8pm came round, we wandered out into the communal area and could not figure out for the life of us where the cake was coming from... we could see people with it but it really wasn't clear to newcomers how to get some for yourself and no staff were around so we went to bed cakeless :(. Also if you want a good sleep I would recommend bringing earplugs - one night/morning (ranged from 3am to about 5am) the room/s above us were SO LOUD that I did not get a wink of sleep. It sounded as if people were dragging 10-ton suitcases around, jumping off and on to beds, and yelling to eachother. I kid you not it felt like the walls were shaking in our room because of how loud it was. This didn't happen the next night thankfully but it was truly awful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Three choices of cereal;three choices of bread for toast,three choices of jam.Plus tea/coffee/milk.
Cons: Noise insulation could be improved ie when someone arises at 4am for an early morning departure,I would rather not be awoken by the noise coming from upstairs,I was in a downstairs room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good location, clean, staff were really friendly, dorm room warm and cosy with heater. Free pies, chocolate pudding & breakfast!! Selection of board games to play and free WiFi. There was also some herbs and a lemon tree in the garden you could help yourself to. The small touches like the recipe book and postcards to send home were nice.
Cons: A bench or something in the shower room to put clothes on would be good as there was only hooks.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It‘s clean and tidy good location near the city centre nice staff free breakfast in the morning and choco budding at night awesome!

Pros: I loved my stay here. The room was spotless, furnished beautifully, very quiet and well-appointed.

Wonderful amenities, thoughtful people and all in all a very positive memory of Nelson, even though it was pouring with rain! I'll be back sometime.

5.4 Okay
Cons: It was my second time to stay there, I quite liked it when I first visit it that's why I came back. But this time was so frustrating. Someone stole and use my food, tearing a name tag, chucking them into another fridge. It never happened to me at any other hostels before. I went to the reception but the staff just said I don't know. The next day someone, I don't know if it was the same one, again threw my can away. It was not practically Yha's fault but I just decided I will never come back again to encounter these nasty people in the hostel.
