Great stay with Hotel Nelson ! I had a small issue when checking into our room. Brought it up with reception and they sorted the problem asap. The staff were friendly and quick to help out. The beds were very comfy and room was cozy. Would definitely come again, next time with our family.

Excellent value for money! Good facilities, location, restaurant. I was on a business trip so the convenience of being central and having restaurant on site during these Covid times made my stay easy and convenient.
