Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I chanced on this place by accident and am very glad I did. Yes it’s an older style, small hotel/motel but my goodness it’s value for money. Central with o/s parking, clean and tidy with all the amenities you need and excellent wifi. Sky sports and movie channels too. Great shower and water pressure and a well equipped kitchenette. Sure there’s no pool or hot tub, and no air con - but we don’t all need that! It has easy to use and relatively quiet doors/locks and great windows with good drapes etc, it’s quiet and comfortable and everything works, beds are comfy with nice clean linen etc. Hostess is lovely and helpful and the whole place has an old school charm about it. I personally rate Trafalgar Lodge so highly I stayed another night and will be back again!

This couple looked after my son David prior to his flight home to London. They made him feel looked after and made sure he had everything he needed before he boarded his flight. I will be eternally grateful for their hospitality

Location of trafalgar lodge is ideal: it’s just a short walk to the cbd. Lovely welcome on arrival and found our host to be friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. Car parking was available without additional charge. Based on the price we paid this was excellent value for money and would recommend for those visiting Nelson.

Manager was extremely helpful. Centrally located. Perfectly adequate room. Three of us were able to stay there with two beds in the lounge. Very quiet for central city and a very good price. Would recommend if you want something budget

Lodge owner Georgina is the best. Very focused on her lodgers and makes sure that your stay is comfortable and flawless. Excellent value for what you get which includes an excellent small kitchen with all appliances that you would need. Super fast internet connection too. For air travelors , there is place to keep luggage after check out should you have a late morning or early afternoon flight. Outstanding location. Within 4 walking blocks of central downtown Nelson that has plenty of cafes and excellent resturants. A 10 minute walk to the jeweler store that sells replica Lord of the Ring rings.

We stayed two nights at Trafalgar Lodge which is located close to the city centre, just 5 mins easy walk. Rooms are spacious, ours had both a queen and single bed along with a 2 seater couch, quality Sony TV and small table with 2 chairs. Still plenty of room to move around. Kitchenette is well equipped with fridge, 2 hotplates, microwave and small oven. The usual small appliances, crockery, utensils and generous supplies. Good size bathroom, excellent water pressure in shower. Very clean and tidy all round. Host is very friendly, great suggestions for local attractions and dining. Although the entrance is on a main road this was a very quiet location. Could not hear any traffic. Free on-site parking and wifi. Definitely recommend... One of the most comfortable beds we've slept in.
