I stayed two nights in a small room. The room was compact and functional but not squeezed - although there was a step up to the washroom. I say it is more than adequate for one person who is planning to be out of the room most of the time. The desk was usable, always an important point. The service... More

Business trips can be tiring but the warm welcome at the Lord Nelson helped me unwind. From the doormen welcoming me each time I returned to the desk staff,and even the cleaning staff anticipating my needs this is a hotel that treats the client like royalty.

We had a great stay. Lovely heritage building with completely updated rooms. Service was very friendly and fast. Indoor parking was a real treat with the winter weather. Love the morning paper delivered each morning.
