“Very nice, friendly helpful staff, clean quiet room”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

We stayed one terrifying night at a hostel in town and then stumbled upon this quaint little lodge. Georgina and the man that was working the front(can't remember name) were great hosts. Room was cleaned daily and it is only a couple blocks from town centre. It was only $30 more than the hostel for two of us and we got our money's worth by using the kitchen

We stayed here twice for 1 night, had 2 different apartments on each occasion, but loved both rooms.
Location: 3-5 minute walk from the town center. Ample free car park on the premises. A previous reviewer complained about noise, but we thought the place was very quiet.
Reception: very friendly, both the lady as well as the chap on the last night were extremely helpful.
Price: excellent value at $115 per night - including WiFi.
Rooms: large, obviously recently renovated with fresh paint and new carpet, all in trendy colours. The rooms come with kitchen with all pots and pans and all you need to cook up a storm. All very spotless.
Bath room: the first bathroom was small (but super clean). The second bathroom was really big. Seems like the size of the bathroom depends a bit on the room you are allocated.
Beds: HUGE king size beds with the most comfy mattress we slept on during our trip in New Zealand.

The Lodge was always full when we stayed there, and I can see why. We can't say anything wrong about this place. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: If you want a big bathroom request one when you make a booking.

The manager of the Trafalgar Lodge was extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants and giving ideas of things to do in Nelson. The location is ideal -- a 5 minute walk to the center of town, on a main street but not too noisy. The room was small but comfortable and well appointed. The ensuite was extremely small, but perfectly usable. Great value for the price.

Recently refurbished, so clean and smart. Only downside were the large number of rules pasted all over the Walls- made us feel much less welcome

We had a great 4 nights here. The owner was always helpful with any advice around the area. The unit was clean and warm and serviced daily. The kitchen was well appointed. We had a great view of the stadium as well!
Really close to to i Site and the centre of town - would recommend staying here to anyone.

We were greeted as if we were friends returning for a visit - and on the day we had to venture out in the rain, I was lent an umbrella by the manager who also had been helpful and knowledgeable in informing us about Nelson. Lent us a very nice book on local museums and sites, offered to give us a ride to visit a distant museum (it was near where they were planning to visit friends, overall made our stay a pleasure. The location is convenient - a pleasant 10-minute or so walk to the center. We'd certainly book there again.

Travelling around Australia and New Zealand we stayed in many types of accommodation from boutique hotels, large chains and home stays, and can honestly say that the welcome given her by Georgina was amazing. Rooms are spacious and clean with plenty of hot water and space to relax, and a small kitchen area. After so much restaurant food this was a joy to see. They may not be the Crown Plaza but not everyone wants an impersonal service.

God car parking and place to do washing – so very happy with the motel and would recommend.
