Check In/Out Info:

Requested room(s) will be ready for check in by 4.00 pm. If an earlier check time is required, we ask that agents or the Guests confirm this with us directly by telephone or email, beforehand. Similarly, if check-in after 6pm, is required. In particular, we ask to be advised beforehand if guests will be arriving in Nelson mid-morning, off long-haul flights originating from the northern hemisphere. This enables us to prioritise room preparation and avoid the unnecessary embarrassment that comes with not having rooms ready to meet guest's early check-in expectations, but that we have no prior knowledge of. We do not guarantee to be on site to welcome guests prior to 4pm, unless prior arrangements have been made. When preparing Guest's itinerary, and details of how to locate Shelbourne Villa, can you please also include a request that they take care not to mistake Shelbourne Villa for the small wooden cottage next door (# 19) our neighbours have become very sensitive to Shelbourne Villa Guests walking into their lounge room, unannounced. The entry to Shelbourne Villa is through a large set of steel and wood gates. There is car parking on-site.

Driving Info:

To get to Nelson from Picton you have a choice of 2 routes.
- First choice is via Queen Charlotte Drive and Havelock then on to Nelson via Highway 6. You will see this route well sign posted shortly after leaving the Ferry Terminal in Picton. This is the most scenic route.
- Second choice is to head south from Picton toward Blenheim. There probably isn't much point in going into Blenheim itself - we suggest travellers turn right onto Raupara Road at a little village north of Blenheim called Spring Creek. Raupara Road will take you past a number of good wineries. At the end of Raupara Road turn right onto Highway 6 which will take you through Havelock to Nelson.

The entry to Shelbourne Villa is through a large set of ornamental steel and wood gates. There is car parking on-site. Guests will find a path to the main entrance, on their right, half way down the driveway.

Transfer Info:

- The Nelson Bus Station is located in Bridge Street, less than 10 minutes walk to Shelbourne Villa.
- Nelson Airport is less than 15 minutes drive to Shelbourne Villa. Travellers will find taxis and shuttles directly outside of the terminal building.
