Cambria House

Cambria House, originally built in the 1800s, has been beautifully restored, and still retains its original style. It is within walking distance of Nelson city center and is a perfect base to explore the local restaurants, art galleries and shops.

The building boasts a natural elegance that is enhanced by a wealth of features, such as beautiful fireplaces, wood paneling and original doors in native timbers. There are six well-appointed guest rooms, three of which are luxury rooms, which are more spacious than the standard rooms and have a slightly larger bathroom as well as little touches such as complimentary port. Breakfast is served alfresco and includes many locally grown homemade goodies.
