We booked months ahead if time to get a hotel in Nelson's Dockyard. We experienced excellent service over the phone while booking, we even extended our trip with no problems. We arrived and room was ready and very clean. Our room was facing the dockyard and had two stories. A kitchenette, bathroom with shower, and living area/library filled the downstairs. The shower leaked downstairs into the dining room so some showers were interrupted by an urgent knock on our door. No worries, this is to be expected in 200 year old building.
The restaurant was good, service is on island time, so allow plenty of time if you need to be somewhere. The location is excellent, you can get everywhere you need by walking, water taxi, or cab. The only trouble during race week is the noise. Bands play till 11 pm each night, and with little insulation, it feels like you are sitting on top of the speakers! We are astride couple, and wanted to go to sleep earlier than the crazy singles in our party, so I might recommend a hotel a little further up the road, away from the party tents if you go in early. Great experience overall.I hear it is perfectly peaceful in the Harbor outside of race week.More
