We stayed in the Lady Hamilton Suite (an unsolicited upgrade since we were staying 3 nights – thank you, David!). The accommodations were fantastic, with everything considered to make our stay more than comfortable. The house is only a short walk to the beaches and good walks, and even better views. Plenty of eating and shopping options are also within... More

My husband & I had a lovely 2 night stay in the Maids Cottage at Trafalgar House in May. The renovations have been very tastefully done. Kitchen is very modern with everything you would need. Great breakfast provisions, too much for us to eat. Lounge /dining room was very comfortable with great TV reception, and a split system which kept... More

This was a real find. My partner and I arrived in port elliot with no set accommodation. David and Rachel were amazing hosts. We stayed in both the Hamilton suite inside and then moved to the maids cottage. Both stays were incredible but the maids cottage was so great we kept extending our stay! It has been recently renovated. All... More

I recently stayed here with three of my friends and would 100% recommend the service and accommodation provided by Trafalgar on the Strand. The attention to detail in our cottage was perfect, they had thought of everything! Whenever we come to Port Elliot I know exactly where I'll be staying every time - can't wait to come back!

We love staying in the Lady Hamilton Suite. It's welcoming, spotlessly clean, quiet & beautiful, a great size for a couple & - especially after the recent & impressive renovations - the perfect mix of old fashioned charm & spanking new fittings. Trafalgar House really is the best location in Pt Elliot. Its a very easy walk to the beach,... More

Thank you for your review McWallies! You were the lucky last to stay in the Lady Hamilton Suite before its big reno, and one of the first to stay after it was all finished. We really appreciated your kind words and friendship during the process (and suggestions - we are working on them!) With best wishes, David and Rachel More

Port Elliot is one of my favorite destinations. In 2012, it was to be the place where we remarried in the gardens overlooking Horseshoe Bay. We chose Trafalgar on the Stand for our wedding night (and a couple more) and so when we returned just recently for one night, we again opted for this wonderful establishment. It is quiet, romantic... More

We had stayed here several years ago and had a very enjoyable time. We can now say that, with new owners the experience was equally good. The location is wonderful - close to a great beach, boutique shopping and a superb bakery. The hosts were available when needed, and very helpful.

Thank you for your lovely review Margaret. We thought we would let you know that the Lady Hamilton Suite and the Cottage have both had a makeover during the winter of 2013.

As an avid Jane Austen fan, staying in the Lady Hamilton suite was a breath of fresh air. When you step inside this romantic suite you feel a little like you are stepping back into another time, with all the modern conveniences. And when I say 'another time,' I do not mean old or dirty. Every room feels classic and... More
