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 the mod cons. Comfortable bed - stunning bathroom. Full kitchen. I could have moved in permanently! Also a short walk to everywhere. This was really something special. Thank you to David and Rachel who made this a memorable stay.

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, the cliffs, the cafes, the shops, the pub, St Jude's ladies marmalade - everything that makes our favourite holiday location the timeless treasure it is. David & Rachel are also the nicest people you could wish to have looking after you. If you need to regenerate, head for Trafalgar House. It captures the soul of Pt Elliot. You can have a 2 week holiday in a few days - essential for those of us who are time poor. We spent New Year 2014 there this year & will be back for a winter dose - maybe Maid's Cottage this time! Myrana & Lester

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

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 and our hosts know what us old romantics are after, so it is a pleasure to stay in this beautiful property. The property is located within an easy walk of the local shops and eateries. All the facilities are first class and I am sure we will return for more romantic escapades in the future.

Thank you Nigel L for your review. I'm sorry its taken so long to get back to you but we've been renovating and time has got the better of us. I know that when you come back to Port Elliot again you will notice a BIG difference, particularly in the Maids Cottage and The Lady Hamilton Suite. It would be great to know what you think of the changes! With best wishes, David and Rachel.

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. Breakfast supplies were excellent, and the Lady Hamilton suite extremely comfortable with everything we needed. Highly recommended for couples.

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.

The Lady Hamilton Suite now has a new kitchen and the bathroom has been upgraded, plus I'm pleased to report that the internal step has been eliminated. We have also made the courtyard very private with a rendered wall and pergola over a timber deck. I've posted new photos on TripAdvisor for you to have a look if you like.

The cottage has had a major reno - not sure if you saw it when you stayed, but you wouldn't recognise it now!

We hope to see you again someday!

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 clean, and what's included in those rooms is just what you need. Heat light in the bathroom, choice of wall heating/cooling or wood heater in the lounge room, good quality TV (not some cheap brand) and many DVDs to choose from, electric blanket on a comfy, beautiful looking bed, and a kitchen with stove top, microwave, and complimentary port and fru-chocs. We also had everything we needed for breakfast as part of our booking. This included a nice choice of cereals, bread, condiments, and juice. It was also nice to find herbal tea on offer with the typical tea/coffee facilities, as not everyone drinks coffee/tea and are rarely catered to.
The location is perfect. Port Elliot is simply beautiful. One of the more exciting holiday destinations to be found in South Australia.
Finally, the owners are very friendly and thoughtful.
I cannot fault our stay, or this fantastic place. We will definitely be back, and would reccommend it to others.
