Karel and David are very genial hosts and most helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here - large comfortable rooms, plenty of info, wi-fi, reasonably close to town centre, easy parking. Nice outside sitting area at the back - just right for aperatifs. Laundry service was an added bonus. Just two downsides for us: lack of hot water one day... More

A wonderful place for a relaxing time. Karel and David Wallace were gracious hosts with lots of information about the areas history as well as information about what to do and where to eat etc. Plenty of talk with the other guests over breakfast about yesterdays activities and todays plans. As for the breakfasts; they were excellent!

This B&B has so much charm and character! I was travelling by myself and stayed in the Rata room at the front of the house with the bay window. The picture on the website doesn't do the room justice! The old fireplace with original slate mantle and the built in woodwork is beautiful. It is well decorated to give it... More

Karel was the perfect hostess. Warm and efficient, she looked after me admirably including, after seeing my walking stick, driving me to and from places in Nelson out of the kindness of her heart. Breakfast was superb. Homemade muesli and fresh fruit, scrambled egg and home smoked salmon washed down with fresh coffee and orange juice, eaten at a fine... More

We stayed in this lovely boutique B And B for 3 nights during our Australia and New Zealand tour. the room we were allocated was comfortable and a good size with attractive furniture and a comfortable bed. It was off season and we were the only guests. It is located just a few minutes walk from the town centre but... More

Beautiful residence near city with a 'presidential' size bedroom and ensuite. Bright large dining room with excellent breakfast choices. Lovely hosts. The B&B is a short pleasant walk back into town. There is also a nice low set timber landing at back to relax by the garden. Outstanding one of the best.

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 came to stay one night before our big hike .... we were worried because we weren't sure how to get to the pickup place, what to expect, what we needed....This couple made sure that all of our needs were met by phoning the agency that was providing the hike...in fact, she was able to get them to come and...

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
