Absolutely lovely place to stay, small and comfortable, run by charming people. A very comfortable room, use of a large lounge and a beautiful small garden at the rear, and within easy walking distance of the town centre. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful, and does a great breakfast. Everything a good B & B should be,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and received a free upgrade to a beautiful and comfortable room. Unfortunately for us we were out on trips all the time, so did not get time to enjoy the rooms & garden sufficiently, which was a real shame. Karen was really kind and offered to cook for us at 5:40am so that we... More

We stayed a Cambria House for two nights while in Nelson on a very special visit. My Father's maternal great-grandparents were among the first German immigrants to land there in 1843. After suffering more than a year of hardship and suffering they were forced to re-emigrate to Australia. Our only hardship was in having to leave after too short a... More

Lovely house in a very quiet location but close to shops and restaurants. Very welcoming host. Lovely bedroom with nice furnishings and amenities and a complimentary decanter of port! Good breakfast served in a lovely dining room.

We booked Cambria House when we were back home in the uk and it was the best one hour spent looking for accommodation in Nelson. The accommodation is of the highest standard, the rooms are spacious and well appointed and Kareland David were great hosts. Karel was also able to help plan our two days there and book the trips...

Lovely small B&B run by the lovely Karen and David, made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable, great breakfasts, good recommendations for tours. Highly recommended.Would certainly go back if we were in Nelson again.

Cambrian House, run by Carol and David, is a small quality B&B that delivers a relaxing and restful stay close to the centre of Nelson. Lovely rooms with all the facilities and warm, friendly service - nicely low key - from the owners. Beautifully prepared and served breakfast in a splendid dining room of a house that reflects the turn... More

We so enjoyed our 2-night stay at Cambria House in Nelson. The location was perfect for walking into town and taking the shopping, restaurants, gardens and even a hike to the center of New Zealand. The cottage setting was surrounded by flowers, so cozy and comfortable. Carol gave us special attention with delicious home-cooked breakfasts before we left early for... More

This is a really lovely B and B. the room we had was lovely, with some nice personal touches. Great bathroom too. There was also a lovely yard to sit in which was great after a day of sight seeing. Owners were very welcoming and helpful too in guiding us to things to do in Nelson. Brill breakfast. Highly recommend... More
