Many years ago, I visited this house when it was called "In the Garden". Since then, it has had serious renovations and looks much better. However, looks can be deceiving. Our en-suite room looked very nice, but the bed was only so-so and there was only air-conditioning or nothing (no screen on the window.) The dining room also looked impressive,... More

The climb to the front door might give you pause. The front porch is a very nice seating area (except for the smoke that day). Inside, the place is spotless and beautiful. Our room (Aspen) was equally clean and well kept. The private bath was one door down the hall. It was very clean and nice. The back patio was... More

This is a great Heritage House, the location couldn't be better. It's right off of the Downtown area, where all the great shops and restaurants. They do serve a full Breakfast in the morning, ie Fruit , yoghurt, and dry cereals,. Their hot breakfast was just a baked egg with an english muffin. A bit on the small side, but... More

riotambopata, Owner at Cloudside Inn, responded to this review

Boy, this has ruined my evening. I can see that the reviewer is trying to be balanced, but how I wish he could see things from my point of view as the owner. My family (hence the co-owner) are on holiday in the UK. I cannot travel with them as we are too busy. I start at 6.45 every day,... More

I happened upon Cloudside whilst visiting a friend in Nelson, BC from my home in the Okanagan Valley. Unforeseen circumstances led me to require last minute accommodations, and from the outset, Chris (the innkeeper), was gracious, welcoming and accommodating. It was my stroke of good fortune to stumble upon the one remaining room for that evening, during an otherwise fully-booked... More

We stayed here for two days and wished we could have stayed for longer . Dally and Chris were very friendly and the breakfasts they cooked were top notch . I would definitely come back here next time I decide to go to Nelson . This place felt like home !

We spent 2 nights at the Cloudside Inn on our way from Victoria to Calgary. It is a quaint historic house in central Nelson which has been restored by the owners. The owners and staff were very welcoming and the Inn is very well located for visiting Nelson. We stayed in the ground floor room which is very specious and... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful, going out of their way to ensure our visit was perfect. The room was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was so delicious including a variety of hot cooked to order items as well as cold fruits and homemade granola. The Inn is located in the heart of the downtown area so everything was...

We stayed here one night in the Spruce Room. The B&B is lovely, with flowers in the front and a deck in the back, and great decor in the rooms. We were sharing a bathroom with one other room but this wasn't a problem; there was a basket of towels provided so we could quickly wipe the sink/shower after we... More

We stayed one night here en route to Calgary. The Cloudside has been by turns a family home, a boarding house and a restaurant; it's now a very pretty B&B. The building has been well maintained and is in excellent shape for a structure of this age. We had a room on the second floor with a private bathroom (some... More

We cannot say enough about our stay. We LOVED it. Beautiful home. Super clean, well appointed rooms. Great hosts. Location could not be better - two minute walk to downtown core. Quiet. Peaceful. Lovely deck. Breakfast is tasty and enjoyed with wonderful company. If you are thinking of visiting Nelson, do it. If you are looking for an amazing B... More
