We spent three nights at The Cathedral Inn during our time in Nelson. Sally and Neville were the ultimate hosts - they helped to book excursions to Abel Tasman National Park and for a wine tour, made reservations for dinner and made suggestions for places to eat. The rooms are cozy, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast includes a full spread...

The owners Sally and Neville offer this beautiful bed and breakfast, a genuine 4 min walk down to the heart of Nelson city. Breakfasts are cooked to order by Neville accommodating for early flights. Don't hesitate to ask for lifts to and from the airport (only a 15 min drive). We enjoyed drinking port in the evenings in the Drawing...

Not much to add to the other reviews. The B and B is up a hill near the Cathedral but not a long walk into town. Impressively, they have a lift to take your luggage upstairs if you are traveling with a bunch of stuff. The breakfasts are amazing and cookied to order - you can have anything from a...

I stayed at the Cathedral Inn in November 2011 with my husband and my brother who was visiting us from the UK. We were all unanimous that Sally and Neville were the kindest hosts imaginable and that Neville's breakfasts were the best we had on our 3 week trip around New Zealand. The rooms are also beautifully appointed and the...

We stayed here for a long weekend and really enjoyed our stay. It's such a great location, right behind the cathedral and close to all the shops, markets, restaurants and bars. The room was really lovely and quiet and the home itself is so beautiful. The highlight for us were the breakfasts served in the grand old dining room. Neville...

Staying at the Cathedral Inn was the perfect relaxation vacation. The home is beautiful and peaceful, but only a few steps from the heart of Nelson. The luxury of walking to excellent restaurants, pubs, cafe's and shops gave it the ideal location. The morning breakfasts were generous and delicious. In addition to the quiet garden and parlour, the guest kitchen...
