This Bed & Breakfast was a great choice for a group of friends on a celebratory weekend. The Cloudside Inn is in a perfect location in Nelson, walking distance to pretty much everything in town. Chris and Sally run a beautiful B&B and are there for all sorts of recommendations and questions, even answering historic questions of Nelson and the... More

My friend and I recently stayed in the Pine room (2 large beds) which was a decent size for the both of us (and all our gear) for 4 nights. We were surprised how quiet the Inn was even though completely full one of the nights. We were equally surprised how loud the road noise is around the Inn and... More

We stayed in the two bedroom unit on the top floor. This was great as it had a great view over the lake and also private entry. The unit was spacious and spotlessly clean with lots of little (and much appreciated) extras. The breakfast (sittings at 8am and 9am) was delicious and sitting around a large table allowed us to...

This was our third stay at the cloudside inn, every time is as good as the previous, the inn is an immaculate georgeous old house with character , the rooms are comfortable and clean and the breakfasts are always tasty and filling. Chris and Sally are very friendly and welcoming and the location is perfect.

It was equally a pleasure to have you folks back! I hope that your decisions on where to live work themselves out, and that you are soon back to walking more easily. Thanks for looking us up again when visiting Nelson. With regards, Sally and Chris More

Three of us (parents and adult child) shared the top floor apartment at the Cloudside Inn and were very pleased with our night there. The apartment was spacious (although the bathroom is small) and comfortable. We didn't really need the kitchen as we were only there one night, but it was well equipped for a longer stay. The folder with... More

Thank-you for posting a good review about Cloudside Inn. Hopefully, the top floor just got a little bit better too, as we have just installed a large new front window which has improved that great view down the valley. We really appreciate that you took some time to write on TripAdvisor. Chris More

Stayed 1 night at this delightful B and B with my girlfriend. We stayed in the Aspen room, it was not huge but the size was no problem for the two of us. It has a private bathroom beside the room itself. All rooms have beautiful decor and the bed was super comfy. The property is right in the centre... More
