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

We arrived shortly before 4 pm, ready to check in, but no -- we were greeted by other guests sitting at the entrance waiting for the 4-o'clock-not-a-minute-earlier opening, and also a large sign explaining to us why it was totally unreasonable for us, the guests, to even think that the doors should open before that time. (Apparently the restricted check-in... More

Gosh, this seems a little harsh! It appears that this guest did not realize that we are a bed and breakfast, not a hotel. Due to our large size, we do sometimes get confused with a small hotel, but we very clearly are not that, nor trying to be. Therefore we can't really be judged as one, or by the... More

Spent 5 days there while attending our daughter's soccer championship. Sally and Chris are wonderful hosts. The accommodation is very clean and well managed. Breakfast was nicely varied each day and the rooms cleaned daily. The back deck is a great place to have a night cap after dining in many of Nelson's great restaurants. The All Seasons Cafe is...

Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to this B&B while visiting Nelson, you won't be disappointed. A beautiful home with a very interesting history (which is explained in a book in your room). It has a direct view of the mountains and is built into a hill itself with lovely decks out back to use. The attention to detail... More

We initially planned to stay only 1 night, but after seeing the town & accommodation we decided to stay for another night. The building is well-kept & beautiful, the rooms comfortable and well thought out. We paid more to have a private bathroom, and it was worth it for us. The owners offered honest and reliable opinions and recommendations. Everyone... More

Cloudside Inn is a beautiful house, which seems perfectly designed to run as a B&B. It has a lovely quality of 'home' about it - you can leave your shoes on mats at the doors and we chose to do so, padding about in bare feet. I love the fact that there is a large communal table for breakfasts, which... More
