Fantastic service and accommodations

5 on July 13, 2013

Despite a gaffe with the online reservation, Chris and Sally went above and beyond to be sure that we had a wonderful place to stay at the Cloudside Inn last February. The service, breakfasts, and clean, comfortable accommodations were superb. While providing privacy, Chris and Sally were also willing to answer all questions with helpful and savvy responses, and at times, also engaged in fascinating conversations about their world travels. --------Suzanne and Jerry

The Immaculate Reception

4.4 on June 03, 2013

From the moment we arrived we felt both very welcome and very "at home". The entire home is immaculately clean and user friendly, including passnumber coded entry doors. All the modern amenities in a Victorian home combine with good food and an international clienetele to make for an interesting breakfast dining experience. Literally "downtown", yet on a quiet street, we found this to be a top notch stay on all counts.

Location, Amenities, Gracious

Cloudside Inn is a perfect match for Nelson. On a quiet street itself, only a block away (downhill) is the restaurant and shopping center of the small town. The Inn itself is run by hosts gracious to a fault (if that is possible). Several small patios areas allow for tranquil, even cosy respites for reading and/or relaxing. The interiors are aesthetically pleasing and immaculate. You can do Nelson differently, but not any better.

Wonderful Hosts, Great Accommodations

Chris, Sally and their lovely family provided a very enjoyable stay for us. We were able to reserve the upper floor with two bed rooms, kitchen, living area and bath and it was perfect for our needs. Cloudside is in a perfect location for a walking tour of Nelson. We would stay here again and would encourage others to so also. The front and rear decks are beautifully landscaped, rooms very clean, beds perfect and breakfast was excellent.
