Our home was built in the latter part of the reign of Queen Victoria and the vibrant and exciting city of Nelson has now grown up and outward 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 away.
On Friday afternoons, the Farmers Market is just opposite us in Founders Heritage Park, while Saturday morning sees many of our guests off to visit the `World-famous-in-New Zealand' craft and artisan market in nearby Montgomery Square.
Although crystal chandeliers hang from ceilings more than eleven feet high downstairs, we do have a new 21st Century hot water system, satellite dish, Wireless Internet and our Balcony Suite, Gold, Blue and Rose Rooms have air-conditioning and en-suite facilities.
Upstairs, the en-suite Balcony Suite and Blue Room have their own verandahs 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 verandah.
All our rooms are BIG - large enough for two Queen Beds and our double-glazed Green Room is very good value for families and those not needing air-conditioning.
A cooked or buffet Breakfast, hot and cold drinks and biscuits is included in our prices. Fast Broadband Internet access.
All long distance coaches stop on request right outside Amber House so you can lie in a bit longer. We have a garage for bikes or your kayak and we grow many of our own vegetables organically in the sunniest place in New Zealand.
Because we have children at primary school we do not allow smoking anywhere on our land.e "Top of the South".
Both Anne and Adam are born and raised in Nelson and would enjoy giving you tips on how to get the best out of your stay in the Top of the South... Welcome home!
