10/10 Exceptional

Exceptionally friendly and helpful host. Although the property was on a busy road the bedrooms are all at the back, so noise is not a problem. Very generous breakfast eaten outside when weather permits.

Wonderful place to stay
We stayed at Ambleside for just a night but what a wonderful stay it was. Peter did everything possible to make us comfortable and was such a delight to chat with. He makes a delicious breakfast, and being able to do a load of laundry was a huge help, as were the tips on what to do locally. One of the best places we stayed at in our three week trip to New Zealand by far!

Nice B&B with great, owners. Excellent breakfasts
The owners knew the entire area and were able to give great recommendations about what to do and where to eat. They provided a very homey and welcoming atmosphere. During our stay, I incurred a small medical problem that led me to bleed on the bath mat in the bathroom. While I was embarrassed, they put my mind at ease and let me know that they would take care of the mess -- NO PROBLEM! This was only my second experience with a B&B and in my mind, this is what a B&B should be all about!

Very comfortable accommodation
Very comfortable, with excellent, welcoming hosts and beautifully cooked breakfasts. Location is a bit out of Nelson, but well located for the airport. Bedroom is not large, but provides comfortable accommodation.

Cute and hospitable home away from home
Our warm and hospitable innkeepers Robyn and Cornelius gave us a heart-warming and tummy-filling three days in Nelson. Would highly recommend this lovely B&B. They have a beautiful garden, with flowers and fruit trees, a lovey outdoor table for breakfast in the morning, and ducks and eels in the stream at the back, that Cornelius feeds every morning and evening. Breakfast was delicious -- healthier and tastier than any you will find in hotels. Case (sp?) cooks his own fruit so we had yummy fresh and preserved plums, apricots, and peaches. The couple are so friendly and welcoming. It was also lovely to get to know the other guests at breakfast. Nelson and Ambleside are both must-sees for anyone going to the South Island.
