In February 2012 we travelled from Vancouver, Canada to New Zealand for a 4 week vacation. Nelson was our second stop on the South Island, and we stayed at Ambleside B & B for a total of 3 nights. What a fantastic experience - 5-star treatment from the pick-up at the airport to the last breakfast in the lovely garden!! Robyn and Kees are warm, friendly people and perfect hosts. The breakfasts were exceptional, and all the fruit is from the garden. All their recommendations of what to see and do in the region were very useful.
We highly recommend this B & B. It is a welcoming place and so much more than a place to stay and eat - it is an opportunity to meet two remarkable people (Robyn and Kees).
