About Camelot City Retreat

Camelot City Retreat is a wonderful character home of grand proportion, a fantastic 1916 Edwardian heritage villa that might best be likened to a Fairy-tale Castle!

Ornate timbers, high ceilings, period Arts & Crafts & Art Nouveau Features, Stained Glass Windows & Lighting Fixtures create a special ambience that can only be forged with the craftsmanship of an earlier era.

Private & Peaceful established Gardens provide a Bounty of Fruit, Nuts & Vegies as well as a wonderful place for a picnic. 

You'll love the Spa Pool with Shower, Infra-red Sauna & access to the Massage/Treatment Room with in-house treatments available by request.

Located in Nelson’s sought after 'Dress Circle', an area synonymous with gorgeous character homes, quiet, sunny, leafy streets & unbelievable proximity to the city centre!

It's just a 2-minute stroll to Melrose House Cafe & gardens & a 5-minute stroll to the Nelson Cathedral park & through to Trafalgar Street for the city's best shopping, wining & dining!

  • Our family really enjoyed Camelot for our 10-day Christmas holiday. The house is beautiful and sunny. The location was perfect for walking into Nelson and the surrounding areas are gorgeous. Parking was easy. The beds were very comfy too. Having laundry facilities right there was great and the host in the garden level apartment was very personable and helpful. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

  • We enjoyed a lovely weekend in sunny Nelson. The house is suitable for a big group and well positioned in a leafy up market heritage suburb very close to the centre with lovely views from upstairs.
