Cambria House

Cambria House, Nelson, New Zealand

Cambria House, originally built in the 1800's, has been beautifully restored, and still retains its original style. It is within walking distance of Nelson city centre 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 panelling 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 home made goodies.
