There was no vacancy at Trafalgar Lodge, but their sign saying so wasn't working properly, so we rang the doorbell. Georgina McGrath, the amiable proprietor, checked her sources and came up dry. But then she...

Roughly 5 minute stroll into the main town where most of the shops, restaurants and Cathedral are situated. A 40 minute walk or so to the beach and a 20 minute walk to the much acclaimed Boat Shed restaurant on the front. We had room 1 on the ground floor which had a large comfortable bed. The kitchen was well...

We had a King Studio room. It was very spacious with an attached kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The Lodge is within walking distance to the CBD of Nelson - with shops, restaurants and pubs just a stroll away. This was great value for money and we would come back again!

It's small, simple and sweet. The beds were great, very warm. The kitchen was clean and had the necessary. It's the perfect place if you're staying a couple of nights and are looking for a comfortable place to stay. It receives good light, has big windows. The lady in charge is extremely nice, gave us a map with the most...

This is a hotel in an old two story house, with units built on at the back, at the north end of Trafalgar street in Nelson, and so close to town. Run by Georgina McGrath. Very friendly and helpful, and offered us advice on what to do and see etc: place was clean, and room service every day we were...

Friendly check in and nice clean room with everything you could need. Spacious room with a kitchenette and a nicely laid out en-suite. About a 10 minute walk into the heart of the CBD Shame we only stopped one night, may have to return!

Situated very conveniently to the CBD and a supermarket. Our room was spotlessly clean and just adequately equipped for making a light meal. We were welcomed by the very friendly owner who offered us a wealth of information. We were warm and comfortable and the shower pressure could have blown us away! It was a cold and frosty morning to...
