We booked the place using trip advisor just by having a look at the pics and when we arrived we found a very nice cottage style motel. Near the center of the beautiful Nelson. We picked a small room upstairs but felt very comfortable withe size and extended our stay for an extra day. Strongly recommended.

Friendly and genuine greeting on checkin. I stayed in the Nelson Room. This was newly decorated with fresh carpet and paint. I found the paint smell very strong which I did find difficult. It had a very large bed and a tiny Bathroom. There was no usable desk, and the iron and ironing board 'travel' style. Toiletries were in unmarked... More

Thank you for your review. There are many discrepancies in this review. Firstly, there were no vacancies in Central Nelson on the night that this gentleman booked the Nelson Room. The Lodge had been completed renovated and finished by June 2015, some 4 months prior to this gentelman’s stay in the Nelson Room. Incidentally, the only renovation to the Nelson... More

We stayed a total of five nights, while visiting Nelson and can highly recommend the accommodation for the central location and friendly service. The unit was really well provided for and perhaps most importantly, we found the beds to be very comfortable. We would happily stay at Trafalgar Lodge again.

We stayed here two nights before and after our Abel Tasman Park visit. Staff was very friendly and helpful, lots of parking, clean room with pretty linens! Bathroom was a bit small, though this was NOT the teeny room that some people seem to complain about. Nice equipped kitchen. Great location just a few minute's walk from a supermarket and... More

My partner and I stayed in the Hamilton Room for 2 nights while in Nelson. We were greeted by the friendly manager and were given some advice about good places to find craft beer and to dine at for dinner. The Hamilton Room was small, large enough for a double bed and a desk but little else. There was just... More

Stopped off here for 1 night on our way up to Golden Bay. Staff were extremely helpful. The room had everything you would expect from a motel, and very clean, with the added bonus of a super king size bed. The only negative is that what I thought was a torrential downpour at 5 am turned out to be the... More

Off-road parking. Reasonable rates (especially for Nelson!!). Just down Nelson's main street. Supermarket a short walk through the park. "I-Centre" (information) nearby, also picture theatre. Helpful & friendly proprietors.

As a solo traveller it was very close to town, very friendly owner, it made my time there very pleasant. It was comfortable, I had a small kitchen with microwave and oven tea& coffee even biscuits. Would stay again.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights, it is so convenient for the centre of Nelson, just a 10 minute walk into the centre of town. Good parking on site and rooms that are clean, adequate and acceptable. The proprietor Georginia is really friendly and very helpful, we would definitely revisit and stay again, although, you probably do... More

My partner and I stayed in the king size room in the lodge. Although it is very convenient with being close to town, we were very disappointed with out 3 night stay. There was little space in our room, making it awkward to move around and find a place to put our luggage. The bathroom was obviously previously a small... More
