Description - Bed and breakfast

See our website: amberhouse co nz

When our family home was built, in the latter part of the reign of Queen Victoria, it stood on the southern shore of Nelson's Haven with fat little Weka running up and down the strand.

Now the vibrant and exciting city of Nelson has grown up and outwards around Amber House, but our home remains a peaceful and helpful haven for travellers with all of our city's attractions just a short stroll from our front gate.

Our guests can amble to the nearby Miyazu traditional Japanese gardens and listen to the water bell, take a look at the new wharekai on Whakatu Marae, or simply sit on our verandah and enjoy the fragrance of our irish roses in the front garden.

Although crystal chandeliers hang from ceilings more than eleven feet high downstairs, we do have a new 21st Century hot water system, satellite dish, fast Internet and all our rooms have en-suite showers and wash hand basins. Our Blue, Gold and Rose Rooms have air-conditioning too and most of our rooms are now double glazed for comfort and peaceful nights.

Upstairs, the en-suite Blue Room has its own balconies with a view over Tasman Bay to the Arthur Ranges on one side and the Sugar Loaf and Botanical Hill (geographical Centre of New Zealand) from the other balcony.

All our rooms are BIG - large enough for two Queen Beds and our Green Room is very good value for families and those on a limited budget and willing to share a bathroom.

Blue and Rose Room guests compliment us on our hot breakfasts cooked to individual order. Many folks have enjoyed one of our "Ulster Fry"s - or you can just help yourself to fruit any time and from a cold (or `continental' style) buffet breakfast if you`re watching your weight.

Booking and cancellation policy

Unless otherwise specified, booking payments are non-refundable.

For each CANCELLATION or change of date/room required there will always be an administration charge of NZ $6.00 levied by Amber House Limited [as distinct from your Agent].
There will be no additional cancellation fees levied by Amber House Limited [as distinct from your Agent] if 31 days or more notice is given to Amber House Limited *OR* we can replace the booking.
If we can not replace the booking, these cancellation fees will apply in addition to the administration charge of NZ $6.00:-
10% of the original agreed payment will also still be required if only 14 to 30 days notice is given;
30% payment if 6 to 13 days notice is given;
50% payment if 3 to 5 days notice is given;
70% payment if 1 to 2 days notice is given;
85% payment if less than 24 hours notice is given.
110% payment is contractually required if you simply don't show up within 2 hours of your advised arrival time without any prior notice to us at all
[and without reasonable excuse - since we will be worried you've had an accident and may be phoning the police and hospitals and postponing our usual bed-time!]
We strongly recommend guests take out travel insurance to protect themselves against any unexpected changes to their travel plans and we trust you will appreciate that our cancellation policies, as specified above, are more liberal than most New Zealand B&B's.

PAYMENT POLICY: We very much prefer you to pay us in cash in full for your reservation when you arrive and we complete the register. [VISA or MasterCard details are required to confirm a booking, but Amber House Limited (as distinct from any agent chosen by the guest) does not usually debit cards prior to the agreed guest arrival date. We ourselves will obtain pre-authorisation or merely hold card details pending guest arrival and with the cardholder's explicit agreement that the quoted card details used to confirm the booking will be passed to our agents to be debited to settle the account if there are any outstanding unpaid charges after the guest departure date booked. In this event, and if no other form of payment is forthcoming, a card surcharge of 10% together with any administrative and collection costs will apply.]
