They may have the world's best afternoon tea but lunch service is terrible. I could hear Margaret, our server, reminding the bartender that she had put in an order for a glass of ice water and an ice tea. She came back and said he was making the tea fresh. Well they must have been making the water fresh too.... More

A nice pleasant stay with friendly staff. Very close to the Naval Museum which was very handy as time was short the next day. The Hotel was close to the restuarant in the town whichwas handy as we were tired having only just arrived that morning from the UK. Pamela & Ralph.

Hotel/pub with ordinary standard. Located adjacent to main road. Close to restaurants at shore. Approximately 20 km to Calk Bay with nice restaurant Harbour Hose. 40 km to Cape Good Hope. Hopefully the owners will change the dirty carpet in the room.

Like most historical buildings in the area, for those that have ears to hear, there is sometimes things that go "bump" in the night. The Lord Nelson Inn has had its fair share of nightly visitations from the other side and decided to call in the "ghost busters". The hotel has now been quiet and tranquil for many months, but...
