Good value and location
Trafalgar Lodge is an old period property, very well up to date. We had the Hamilton room. Whilst a small double it was very clean and well appointed. The lodge itself is a mere 100 meters from the centre of town, and is within walking distance of good bars and restaurants.

2 night stay in double roo fit for singles only
We stayed 2 nights in Hamilton Room. should not market this as a double room. It is extremely small, no room for luggage or storage. It would suit a single traveller only. The shower/basin/wc area is tiny. The bed was comfortable but the room hot. There were laundry facilities and loads of space to hang clothes out to dry. The owner was very helpful and loaned us a toaster and a fan and gave lots of useful information about Nelson which is a lovely town. The accommodation is very centrally based and everything can be reached on foot. This would be a very nice place to stay but avoid Hamilton room unless you are travelling alone.

Trafalgar Lodge, Nelson
Pleasant although rather intense proprietor, helpful with suggestions. Room was clean, large bed but small room and the bathroom even smaller. Poor sink design resulted in water splashes. Toilet, basin and shower squeezed into a long room. Basic coffee/tea making facilities, and microwave. Reasonable but just as a bed to sleep in overnight.

Over and above the call of duty
Great place to stay in Nelson. Very central, and close to all the good things Nelsom N has to offer. Georgina was very helpful with tips to get the most from our short stay, and even arranged to send on an item we stupidly left in the room.
