We spent 3 nights at Cambria House between Christmas and New Year. We loved Nelson in general and Cambria House in particular. David and Karel were attentive hosts. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean, the breakfasts were excellent and Brenda was very happy to put

Having stayed in a few B&B’s on our travels around NZ, we were bitterly disappointed with this place. Our room was full of cobwebs and smelt damp. It was old in style (furniture) however looked very tired all over, even the bedspread!!! We saw the landlady our arrival for 5

Mandy, you seemed such an outgoing and confident person who did not need me hovering over you, but I was always there, all weekend, available for you, and you were told as every guest is, how to knock on the door and talk to me. I believe it took more than 5 minutes to show you around and go outside with you to park your car etc. but I never leave a guest on their arrival without being sure they are settled and know how to come back to me. I had a senior staff member on duty for both breakfasts but I was as close as the kitchen, cooking the orders and aware of what was happening around the table. You had told me you were going to the Market first thing on Saturday morning and did not hear you return till quite late. I was not aware of you coming into the house all day or I would have talked to you. Almost all guests come to say goodbye on checkout but you left without any effort to speak to me. You made a huge effort to shift heavy furniture to find the cobwebs but they should not have been there, visible or not. I am sorry they had not been removed. You found them but not the two visitors' books! Thankyou for your opinion.
