"Beautiful renovated Early Victorian Historic House"
This was quite a special stay - Warwick House is one of the largest and oldest Early Victorian homes in New Zealand.
It had been recommended to us by 2 of our friends and certainly didn't let us down.
The property is just gorgeous to look at from the outside, perfect proportions with steep arched roofs and slate tiles.
On the East side is has an amazing 4 story octagonal tower - Like a fairy tale castle.
(Apparently before it was renovated the locals just used to call this 'The Castle', so the taxi driver told us)
The major feature inside is the huge ballroom with a 17 foot high ceiling. This is the most beautifully proportioned
room that we had ever been in. It would be amazing to have a wedding or function in. The owners' told us that they do 'High Teas' for groups quite regularly. We were served breakfast there with classical music. Their home made Muesli was lovely. We bought some to take on the rest of our trip with us.
We would definitely recommend the large rooms and suites upstairs with clawfoot baths and lots of space.
Especially if you have 3-4 nights to spend in the Nelson area. We did lots of walks from the property, all lovely.

The Ambleside is a great choice for a stay in Nelson. Robyn and Kees are wonderful hosts who are anxious to make your stay a pleasant one. They were very helpful with restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. The Cream Honeymoon Suite at the back of the house is very quiet and private. The bathroom is a bit small, but spotlessly clean. Breakfast on the outside patio was delightful, with a very generous continental breakfast and eggs if desired. It is located on a busy street, which can make exiting the drive a bit challenging, but there is off-street parking.
