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.

Our hosts, Carol and David were wonderful people who shared their knowledge of Nelson, the surrounding area, & Abel Tasman Nat'l. Park to help us enjoy the area. Carol suggested Hopgoods for dinner & made our reservation. She also provided us with info about the Nelson Art Festival Parade. David told us about driving south to St. Arnaud to see...

We stayed here for just one night. The room we had was at the front of the house overlooking the quiet street allowing a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. The room was small and clean but didn't allow for easy relaxing other than using the bed or to view TV. There is a lounge area but we didn't...

Our group of four adults had booked an overnight stay. My son and I arrived shortly after my daughter and her husband had experienced a rude and unwelcoming interaction with the host (David). Karel met me and quickly attempted to justify her husband's behaviour towards my daughter and her husband. A swift and unconditional apology from David for the unpleasant...

My wife and I were having a great day until we came to check in at Cambria House. Even with a giant bird pooping on her. We were about 20 mins early for check-in, only to find the door locked (as she wanted to clean up the droppings from her hair). After knocking once, a kind Chinese gentleman (another guest)...
