We've been lucky enough, in such a short space of time, to receive such wonderful feedback from our guests.
We value their thoughts, and yours, so please let us know how you enjoyed our stay.

the Waters is a family business, and we work hard to ensure our guests experience is second to none.

It was one of the best experiences in hotels ever. We stayed there for 3 nights during our travel round at last spring. It was – with a huge distance – the best accommodation of the trip. The view out of the hotel room is a dream. Very kind hosts.

We were impressed about the impressive scenery of Kina beach and the fabulous and very stylish suites right to the sea. We really felt very welcome at this nice place. During our 4 week trip through New Zealand - "The Waters" was our No.1 Bed&Breakfast accommodation!

We stayed at The Waters during Christmas holidays. It was a fantastic time we had. Everything is new and in a great condition. The breakfast will be prepared with love.

We were blown away by this amazing spot. Stunning sea views right over Tasman Bay, good standard of apartments and warm and friendly hosts. Thanks Phil and Clare - you were great hosts.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Waters for a few nights and honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to unwind and enjoy the local area. Thank you Claire, Phil, Shona and Arthur - you made our stay very special.

"The Waters" was a perfect getaway retreat for a weekend away. Very private, clean, modern and self contained apartment in a great location to explore beautiful Nelson! The homemade breakfast was delicious with lovely fresh local produce. We definately plan to return one day!

It was incredible. The hosts are wonderful. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We also appreciated the high quality linens, fresh fruit, tasty breakfast, the long clifside beach for walking, the proximity to Abel Tasmen National Park, and the ability to have dinner prepared on site. We missed The Waters every day.

This place is incredible, beautiful rooms, and the hosts nothing less than perfect. Host Claire and Phil are great. Claire is a gem and is full of enthusiasm, pride and knowledge of New Zealand and particularly for this region.

This B&B is beautiful situated. It was one of the places where I found even more beautiful and more impressive than the pictures. My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend it.

As frequent international travellers, we have stayed in luxury hotels world-wide, but these newly built boutique studios easily rank alongside the best and most beautiful accommodation we have ever experienced. They are located within an olive grove on a peaceful peninsula.

We ended our honeymoon at The Waters and we couldn't have chose a better place. Waking up to the ocean in your back yard is very relaxing and the breakfast was great as well. The host's were fabulous too. I could say 100 things great about this place and nothing negative.

My wife and I had a great time at the Waters on our honeymoon last month. Claire and Phil were great hosts. The 3 suites are ultra-modern as depicted, with a nice little deck overlooking the pond.

Great location and views. Very relaxing and very friendly host Claire and Phil. Beautiful beach with almost nobody else.

Our boss very kindly took us away to The Waters for the weekend. The accommodation was sublime - out of this world. The views were to die for, the unit was of a 5 star + standard, the bed was so comfortable, I didn't want to get up! This was just a perfect weekend away for our team.

A fantastic place to stay, a great place to relax. The hosts were great. We saw dolphins in the ocean right outside our room, which was very special. We can only recommend it.

Each studio has a north-facing deck, providing the perfect spot from which to sip coffee or a local wine whilst drinking in the gorgeous view of Tasman Bay. We felt that we had excellent value for money during our stay and look forward to returning.

An amazing spot just out of Nelson. We 'hired' Phil for a couple of hours, he has in depth knowledge of the area & we were lucky enough to experience some winery's, we wouldn't have known about them without our host Phil. Accommodation far exceeded our expectations, true 5+! I would recommend enjoying a BBQ dinner outdoors in front of the fire, bliss!!
