Great family friendly hotel
We had a great weekend away with 2 young children, and grandparents stayed at the same hotel in another room too. There is a lift which makes pram and wheelchair access easy. The hotel is very close to cafes, restaurants, the marina, walking tracks and a play area for kids. The room itself was clean and comfortable. Will definitely visit again

Highly recommended
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Nelson. The room was fresh and comfortable, the staff friendly and accessible. The cafe attached to the Hotel served excellent meals. As we came by public transport, we were able to walk easily to the nearby Marina and the village. I am happy to recommend this accommodation.

Great location - walking-distance to the Marina and has an on-site cafe that serves great breakfast. Bed was too soft for our liking.

10/10 Exceptional

Great central location, friendly staff and a fabulous cafe downstairs. Rooms have been tastefully renovated. The first place I've stayed in for literally years that has a comfy bed instead of a rock hard one, so I actually had a good sleep!
