My husband, daughter and myself stayed in the 2 bedroom unit which was fabulous. Plenty of room for the 3 of us. Easy parking at the rear of the property, great deck at the back to relax on. We stayed 2 nights and loved it , a plus was the easy walk to the town, so no need to drive... More

A great bed and breakfast with hosts who truly care. We came to the Cloudside Inn for only one night. We were in Nelson for a wedding. We came on the weekend of the classic car show, so many streets were closed and it was very busy. We were relieved that the Cloudside has dedicated, free parking behind the inn.... More

This was our second stay – the first being 15 years ago when Cloudside had different owners. I have to say we enjoyed our stay just as much. Chris and Amelie were charming and accommodating. Cloudside's location makes it walking distance to the best Nelson has to offer - the historic buildings, cafes, shops and restaurants. Parking for the suite... More

This facility had the best bed we slept on for our whole trip. We stayed here 2 nights. This facility also had the most stairs of anywhere we stayed. In Nelson everything seemed to be on a hill. It was an easy walk to downtown and restaurants as well as the historic area. For us the shopping downtown was the... More

I stayed at the Cloudside based on a friend's recommendation. It was a beautiful property. We booked the Cedar room. It was slightly odd that the bathroom was three doors away, but being a first timer to a B&B, I didn't know what I was expecting. It was a lovely room that was well maintained. We had an extra person... More

This B&B offers something many B&Bs don't get quite right...that true spirit of welcoming people into a home and sharing everything wonderful it has to offer - including the experiences and wonderful personalities of the owners and the staff that work there. One morning while relaxing on the front porch I was listening to the exchange between Sally and one... More

We stopped at this B&B for a one-night stay and although it was good, it could not compete with other B&Bs we stayed at on this trip. As other reviewers noted, the number of rooms make it feel more like an Inn than a B&B. The bathroom was private but not ensuite. The room had an AC unit; but the... More

These folks have everything and it is lovely. the front patio is very nice and the back deck with off street parking is very nice. We loved this place and it is right downtown with oodles of restaurants to choose from. Only downside was our private bathroom was to doors down the hall and was very hot inside before even... More

We stayed in Cloudside Inn in the Tamarack Apt in July. It was over 30 degrees out but not much less in Apt. It had 3 air conditioners and 2 fans and still @ 10 pm it was way too hot. The house is stunning, food great, location great. Just be warned about the Tamarack Apt which is on the... More

riotambopata, Owner at Cloudside Inn, responded to this review

As readers might be able to tell from our other reviews, we are not used to dealing with really dissatisfied guests. We didn’t get into the accommodation business to offer an inferior service, but every so often situations arise when there is nothing else that can physically be done to appease or mollify an individual who is seemingly determined not...
