The luxurious Bishop’s Suites are set on a privately owned estate on the fringe of Nelson City, are annexed to a grand Victorian homestead built in 1925 for the first Bishop of Nelson.
The homestead and grounds have been restored and transformed into fine accommodation with an elegant classical ambience.
The Bishop’s Suites are luxury stand-alone apartments. Generously appointed, each has a warm and inviting style of its own. Think – rich fabrics, elegant furniture and beautiful Irish linen. Fresh fruit, scented candles, handmade chocolates, wine and beverages – all complimentary in your suite.
Immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of the estate. Relax by the open fireplace or outdoors in the swimming pool and spa room.
In the evening join your hosts for pre dinner cocktails and canapés followed by a 5-course candlelit dinner, in the dining room of the Homestead. A romantic dinner for two. Mary will create the perfect setting poolside in the gorgeous spa room, or maybe the Summerhouse in the garden or under the Oak Tree.
Wake to a sumptuous breakfast – you can choose to enjoy this in the privacy of your own suite or at the Homestead.
Surrounded by art galleries, the World of Wearable Arts museum, cafes and vineyards. A day trip to the world famous Abel Tasman National Park, renowned for its pristine beaches, sea kayaking, bushing walking or sailing. Or just relax at Bishopdale Estate, swim, partake in a game of Petanque or Croquet or relax in the Spa.
An historic church built for the original Bishop as his personal chapel is just perfect for stylish, exclusive weddings. Or a garden wedding in the beautiful grounds of Bishopdale Estate.
ABOUT THE OWNERS
Mary and Peter have travelled extensively around the world and appreciate the meaning of a warm and personal welcome and professional service.
Mary supervised the refurbishment of the historic Bishopdale Homestead and the recent building of the Bishop’s Suites. Her flair can be seen in the resulting décor; Ralph Lauren inspired Suter and Sutton suites, the Oriental flavour of the Eaton and Hobhouse Suites or the Italian styled Trafalgar Lodge and Suite.
Conde Nast included The Bishop’s Suites in its 2012 Hot List of the world’s best new hotels – “this gracious, secluded home feels like a country retreat, and being greeted like long- lost friends is just the beginning. On a par with the best high-end lodges in New Zealand”
