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 of the 19th century with lots of interesting pictures and artefacts.

Close to the centre and good restaurants (mostly at the Cathedral end of Trafalgar Street. You will not find bustling nightlife in Nelson, and it is all the better for that.

Visit the iSite for really great advice and also check out with Carol and David before any trips as they have excellent knowledge of the local area.

Loved our 2 night stay and thanks for both our hosts for making it so enjoyable.

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 our tour of Abel Tasman National Park.

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 a visit

We had the good fortune to spend 3 nights in this beautiful old home that has approx 6 rooms with private baths. The owner is a wonderful and charming woman who goes out of her way to provide great service and comfort. The home is situated an easy walk from the Travalgar St shopping and dining district. Breakfasts were custom designed to our tastes, room and bed were comfortable, and the room size and bathroom were more than adequate. We felt at home in this wonderful facility!

The property in right in town and the hosts are there and willing to help with anything.

Breakfast was substantial and a great start to the day.

We only stayed one night in Nelson during our tour of New Zealand and were very satisfied with Cambria House. It is a beautifully furnished house with a sitting room and outside deck area available to guests and off-road parking We had a comfortable bedroom with a modern en-suite shower.
The owner (Carol) made us very welcome and gave us advice about the area and where to eat. Complimentary tea and coffee was available in the sitting room, along with a glass of sherry. There were also tea and coffee making facilities in our bedroom and complimentary chocolates.
The highlight of our stay was the breakfast with a choice of cereals and several cooked options. I had the Marlborough smoked salmon and scrambled egg while my husband had a full cooked breakfast. Followed by toast and marmalade, it was just what we needed to set us up for another day on the road.
