We stayed here for 3 nights. The website states that this is a luxury B&B. That may have been true many years ago and yet of all the B&B that we stayed at on this month long trip, it was the least level of luxury that we enjoyed. The room was relatively small, particularly for 3 nights, with very limited...

Cambria house was very nice and in a good position for walking in to Nelson. The breakfasts were very good and the owners were both friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Made a nice change from hotels.

Comfortable, great location, quiet, excellent help from owners. Travel advice very helpful. Patio to relax in. Delicious breakfast. A lovely river walk is a couple of blocks away, and it's a short drive or walk into town for meals.

Room really nicely presented with ensuite. Very good cooked breakfast, excellent cookies! Karen & David were great hosts, always available and able to provide information about Nelson, directions, places of interest and the weather! Good location, about 10 mins walk into the centre of the town with the cathedral, really interesting regional museum, variety of bars, restaurants.

After three flights from the UK, we wanted a place that was easy to find and welcoming, and we got just that. Much better than a corporate hotel, we were left to relax and get to grips with time zones, whilst being fed a great breakfast and useful advice in equal measure. Karen and David were great hosts and the...

We stayed here for three nights. Karel was great. She gave us really good information about the area and because of her we saw some wonderful places. David was wonderful at giving accurate weather forecasts! Breakfast at a communal table was actually really nice. Everyone we met was touring NZ like ourselves so it was helpful to get recommendations and...

Stayed one night en route to Abel Tasman and found our stay very satisfactory. We were given room 1 and sat outside the patio door for a pre dinner drink in dappled sunshine. Didn't have the complimentary sherry in our room as prefer beer and wine. Lovely bath although water pressure slow to fill it. Less than ten minute walk...

We spent several nights at Cambria House in Nelson on our recent trip to New Zealand. We enjoyed being in a neighborhood that was an easy walk into town. The Wallaces were welcoming, gracious hosts. The Nelson area was well worth the visit.

Karel was a great host and provided excellent information on things to do, restaurants, etc. We stayed for 4 nights in the deluxe suite, which was large and very comfortable. It was an easy 10 minute walk into town. Good breakfast menu, all cooked fresh. Would definitely recommend to our friends.

Very comfortable, clean and fairly large room with small bathtub, (I got in but couldn't get out), and a shower. Very welcoming hosts Karel and David provided good information on where to eat and things to see on our onward journey. Breakfast really nice, cooked from locally sourced produce.

Thank David E
