We visited the Nelson with a sports tour group and started with low expectations primarily because I've stayed in UK seaside hotels before. They always seem to be timemachines from another era, full of OAP's where getting a late drink means having a Horlicks after 9pm.
In many ways the Nelson lives up to this stereotype but the breakfast was good, our room reasonably spacious and the whole place kept clean & tidy. The evening menu could be described as 'traditional' although there was what the menu described as an 'International dish of the day'.....it was spagetti bolognese !! However to be fair the roast chicken was fine & not expensive.
As for the bar if you like an aging crooner singing Kenny Rodgers songs to an audience of 5 OAP's, two of whom are playing scrabble then this is the place for you.
