Shelbourne Villa

Shelbourne Villa, Nelson, New Zealand

Shelbourne Villa Bed & Breakfast is in a quiet street, but one that is only a short, five minute walk to the main shopping area of Nelson City, with its restaurants and galleries.

The Newby Suite is the original master bedroom, and although it is now the smallest room in the house, it is still a comfortable size with a king bed and en suite facilities. The Master Suite is large and comfortable, and the Garden Suite is detached from the main house with its own private entrance. The Loft is the largest suite in the house, and occupies the entire upper level of Shelbourne Villa, offering complete privacy and stunning views of the city and Tasman Bay. Full continental and cooked breakfast is included in your stay, and guests can also enjoy the colorful mature gardens, which have several outdoor seating areas and sun loungers.
