Very well situated to down town, this B&B style inn exceeded all expectations. The proprietors serve up an ample breakfast which includes a variety of juices, cereals, fresh fruit, made to order eggs or French toast. Their local knowledge is very helpful and they willingly make reservations and provide directions too. Rooms are well proportioned, sunny and clean. I would... More

This place is perfect! Our second night in New Zealand for our honeymoon and we couldn't be happier about our decision to stay here. It's a short walk past a beautiful church to the town where all the cafés and restaurants are. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Free wifi and access to a small fridge, dinnerware, teas and biscuits... More

We liked everything about this place, which is ideal for a long weekend for more than one couple. It is a beautiful, big, well-maintained old house with: -the B&B area clearly separated from the family's living space, -friendly, helpful hosts who let the guests decide how much contact you want to have with them, and who have reliable information about...

Sally, Neville, Barry and Baxter were so nice and made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, lots of nice touches such as chocolates in the room on arrival and cookies in the tea room. Excellent choice of continental or cooked breakfasts, all set in a quiet but great location next to the cathedral, and a short walk... More

It was a dreary, rainy summer's day when we pulled in to the Cathedral Inn. The hosts, Neville and Sally, were such bright and welcoming faces. They upgraded us to a larger room and we immediately enjoyed our surroundings. The lovely accommodation was enhanced by a great night's sleep in a king bed. Then, in the morning, we were served...

Beautiful restored home with rich history perched on top of the hill above Nelson and next to the town church. Easy walk next to the church and down the stairs to the center of town Hosts are unbelievable and the breakfasts are 4-5 choice home cooked full meals. Incredible all around. Parking, nice beds and showers, small things like cookies,... More

The Cathedral Inn is probably the best B & B we have ever stayed. The location is perfect..just 100-200 metres from numerous eateries and centre of the city. It was quiet, spotless and the owners so friendly and helpful. We will have no hesitation in recommending it to friends--in fact it is a must if in Nelson. ---just leaving was... More

I will begin this review with a caveat that may have reflected on our less than perfect score. When we arrived Neville was 3 days post op from a hip-replacement. I think this dear and charming couple would have been wise to close their doors to allow some time for Neville to recoup and Sally to rest. They were as... More

This must be one of the best bed and breakfasts we've ever stayed at. First of all, both the beds and the breakfasts are fantastic! The location couldn't be better, set in a beautiful old house, it is just a very short (3 min) stroll from the cathedral and 5 minutes from the city centre and all the nice restaurants.... More
