Our hosts Karel & David made us feel very welcome at our first stop. The breakfast was wonderful. The house is so close to town that we enjoyed a few walks out. Karel suggested visiting the center of New Zealand and it did not disappoint! We would not hesitate on staying here again if we are ever back in New... More

A delightful B&B where you are immediately made welcome by Karen and David. Enjoyable breakfasts and tea making and other facilities readily available. A short walk into town with a range of restaurants.

Karel & David are lovely hosts, welcoming you to their immaculate b&b. The accomodation is spotless with every extra you could think of provided. Karel kindly booked Water Taxis on the Able Tasman for us and recommended great restaurants to eat. Cumbria House is in a tranquil street, only a short walk from the center of Nelson making it the...

We discovered on our trip to New Zealand that boutique B&B's can often be nicer places to stay than larger hotels and Cambria House falls into this category. Karel and David are excellent welcoming hosts and and,in addition to their hospitality, can provide lots of helpful and interesting information on the Nelson area. The B&B is situated in a quiet...

We were very happy with our 3 day stay at Cambria House in Nelson. The owners were very helpful with information on activities and travel. Dave had extensive knowledge on routes to travel. The food and guest room were terrific. Quite with a nice garden adjacent.

Very comfortable B and B with (small) baths and showers, very comfortable beds and delicious breakfast in a rather chilly dining room! Delightful and very helpful hostess and we would recommend this as a nice place to stay for a couple of nights!

Thankyou for your comments. I'm sorry you felt chilly in the dining room. We have thermostatically controlled heating, but sometimes I am very hot with the cooking. However I should have noticed you were not comfortable. More

My third business trip to Nelson, there is no need to stay anyplace else. Such comfort and care. Pays to phone and book , unless you like paying higher internet prices. The rooms are so large, peaceful and the breakfast.......well that's a whole other story.

This is the second time I have stayed at Cambria House and I would happily return again and again. Karel and David are wonderful hosts. They are friendly and helpful without being intrusive and their rooms are large and comfortable. The simple but high quality breakfast is taken round the big table in the dining room giving you the opportunity... More

We were given a warm welcome by Carol and made to feel very comfortable from the start. There was a lovely sitting room and a decked garden area with shading. Tea and coffee making facilities and use of a fridge in the dining room as well as tea and coffee facilities in the rooms. Cambria House is a short walk... More

Nice B&B in a Victorian house, but with modern and clean bathrooms with underfloor heating so we were pleased about that. Breakfast was lovely and the house is a 10-15min walk from the town centre which has many nice restaurants and bike rental facilities (we used Bike Barn). It's about an hour's drive from Kaiteriteri where most Abel Tasman activities... More
