What a fabulous B&B in the heart of the Kootenays! Nelson is a warm and friendly city with an eclectic mix of peace-loving residents (dreadlocks galore).... a pretty and historic town with a village feel, though with all big-city conveniences (including cheap gas). Cloudside Inn is an imposing, 100 year old building with all the charm and grace of a... More

Nelson is an enjoyable destination that is enhanced by a stay at the Cloudside. Near the action; quiet; engaging owners; good brekkie. Environmentally conscious; off-street parking; well done home restoration.

From the moment we booked, including communications prior to arriving and our checkout, we experienced lovely, warm, friendly and professional service. We have stayed in many b&b's, and Chris and Sally definitely met our expectations. While we were there, we met many return guests and the conversation around the breakfast table was jovial, lively and diverse. They really go all... More

Loved this beautiful B&B in Nelson! Chris & Sally were warm and welcoming, the room was great and spotlessly clean, and the location is steps to Baker Street. Chris is also a great source of information about Nelson & area. Breakfast was fantastic and different every day. Highly recommend!

This is a great alternative to more traditional hotels as a homey, friendly, and comfortable place to be based in Nelson and Kootenay lake area. The breakfasts are amazing, rooms quiet and beds extremely comfortable. The top floor apartment is fully equipped and benefits from a separate back deck and entrance to the parking area. However, one quibble with the... More

We've been there in September and had a great stay there. Facing the hill, our room didn't have so much view, but that was ok. As for most of the rooms there, our bathroom was outside of the room, while being ours entirely. This is not disturbing either, and silent because that way there is no bathroom adjacent to our...

The beds were comfy and large, and they provided good beds for the kids. They are situated in a lovely place, ypu can... More

this is the first time that we've stayed at the Cloudside Inn. It’s an old, storied mansion, right downtown. We had to share a bathroom but it wasn’t a big deal. It is very convenient (right downtown) and comfortable. It even had French “maids’ (well, the young ladies *were* French). We had dinner at the nearby Hume Hotel. It was... More

I've been visiting Nelson multiple times per year for the last 10 years and somehow didn't know about this great gem in the city! It's my new #1 choice to stay at! Beautiful historic Inn that has been renovated with modern amenities yet retaining it's historic charm. Excellent welcoming by the owner. I'll be staying here again and again in... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights at the Cloudside Inn while visiting Nelson and the surrounding area. We had a delightful stay. A beautiful home, comfortable, charming rooms, very friendly and welcoming hosts and staff- and great breakfasts - each different and all excellent. No detail is overlooked . For instance, as we arrived on a Sunday evening, there... More

It was a lot of fun chatting you over the several days that you were with us. I think you are planning another spring or summer trip to the area for 2015 so I hope that we will see you again then. With thanks, Chris More
