“2 Day stay in Cambria House”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

As part of a 3 week tour of New Zealand we stopped at Cambria House in Nelson for 2 nights. The accommodation was fantastic, exceptionally clean, and Karel could not have been more helpful. It was just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Nelson with its vibrant market and restaurants. The House was immaculately furnished and all the modern conveniences were available either in your room or in the nearby dining area. Internet was free via the family PC. Breakfast was excellent and served between 7:30 - 9:30 although when we were leaving early to visit Abel Tasman Karel served it at around 7am. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: All the rooms were brilliant

my husband and i were travelling through Nelson on our honeymoon and stumbled on Cambria House. We had no idea what a gem it was going to be. It is set in a residential leafy avenue, just over the bridge from the main CBD in Nelson. From the word go you know you are going to be in for a treat. the front garden is immaculate, stunning display of flowers and carefully chosen ornaments to complement the washboard loook of the house - all tended by the owners themselves who clealry take a huge pride in their house. Entering the house we felt immediately at home, the furnishings are so well put together - stylish, in a boutique way, but with the added sense of a real home. The guest lounge felt like the sort of place you really would like to hang out in - made that much more appealing by the free port and brandy! the room itself was of one of the highest standard i have seen - its up there with the level of quality you would expect in a 5 star coran type hotel. The bed was super comfy, the pillows and duvet were full on luxury. The bathroom was the real star - a free standing huge bath, a hug walk in shower with, stunning decor, heated floors and heat lamp lights. We were also hugely impressed by the quality of the breakfasts in the morning. The owners are really freidnly and nice and helped many of the guests with travel plans, ideas, advice and bookings. to top it off there was free wi fi as well! although we were off to see some amazing places in the south island we were actually very sad to leave cambria house because it was so lovely, we would definately stay there again if we went back to Nelson, its a perfect place for a bit of luxury.

Lovely B&B just 10 mins walk from the centre of Nelson. David and Karel were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble, Great room very clean and well decorated.

Cambria House was a clean and comfortable B&B that seemed more like a hotel than a B&B. It advertises itself as a "luxury" B&B which might be overstating things. It is a fine place to stay, but if I found myself in Nelson again, it wouldn't be my first choice.

We (4 adults) found Cambria House very comfortable and welcoming. Hosts had good knowledge of area and had time to chat. Rooms spacious and all mod cons provided. Lovely lounge to relax in with a plentiful supply of tea and biscuits. Breakfasts delicious with plenty of choice. Needed to drive to centre for restuarants but good choice. Thankyou for lovely stay

We stayed two nightsat this B&B, located about 15 minutes walk from Nelson centre. Hosts were friendly and provided lots of advice about places to eat and visit and routes to take. They also booked a boat trip at Abel Tasman for us.

Breakfasts were suberb, amongst the best we had in New Zealand.

Room was large and comfortable, but not long off needing some refurbishment.

A computer was available for guests to access internet at no cost. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided in the room and in guest lounge.

Cost seemed slightly high compared to other B&Bs we stayed at in New Zealand, nevertheless would still recommend Cambria House.

Cambria House is a home from home place to stay, really comfortable rooms with great extras such as free use of the computer with internet access. Karel was friendly and helped us to book our trip to the Abel Tasman National Park (about an hour away). Just 5 mins walk into Nelson.
