Ambleside Luxury Bed and Breakfast

Posted Apr 27, 2014
Pros: Everything. The room was cosy and comfortable, the breakfast absolutely delicious The house itself was beautifully appointed and we felt most welcome
Cons: Just my decision to only spend one night here. I cannot think of anything that needs to be improved at Ambleside. Kees and Robyn were great hosts.
Location: As we drove in at night we missed most of the great landscape and only saw it on drive back across to Kaikoura next morning.
My husband and I took a break over Easter and unfortunately I only booked the one night in Nelson. What we saw we loved but left ourselves time poor to really enjoy the wonderful Nelson area. Robyn and Kees were great hosts and we both enjoyed our all too brief time at Ambleside immensely. Next time we would choose to base ourselves at Ambleside for at least a week to give us time to explore the surrounding area extensively. Robyn on hearing about our itinerary quickly gave us a run down on the not to be missed activities and locations along our route which we are very glad we followed. We arrived back in Australia feeling very rested and relaxed but with a more realistic idea of what to plan for our next trip to the South Island as I am sure we will be visiting again.

Lovely B&B close to downtown Nelson

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.

Ambleside B & B

Apart from having all the comforts of home [and probably a few more] ... we were mad to feel completely at home: Taking us to the airport, tea in the garden; breakfast to fit in with our schedule. This was a very good experience.
