We arranged accommodation including full breakfast for some of our visiting employees and their families. Very happy with the room standard overall, food and the friendly helpful staff in the restaurant.

The team at The Nelson were great - hosting my father's 90th birthday party. Everyone commented on both the quality and quantity of the food. The staff were superb at both help with pre-planning for the event and the lovely family breakfast we enjoyed the next day.

Lovely Room. Terrific food especially the steaks and puddings to die for! Little let down that our room had not been tidied during our stay. Also there were a lot of flies in the restaurant which was quite irritating. Non the less our stay was enjoyable and the staff very hospitable - look forward to seeing you again next year
