myself and my husband arrived monday 6th of august (my birthday treat) we were greeted by a lovely man on reception who had told us that the double room we had booked had been upgraded to the lady elizabeth suite, obviously that was a lovely birthday surprise, the gentleman went on to explain about the lift and that they did have a coach party in so what times to avoid eating if we didnt want to wait, which again was very helpful to us. the suite was lovely and the jacuzzi bath was very relaxing, we had ample things in the room but if we needed anything we only had to ask, the only negative thing i have to say is that we choose to eat in the restaurant and while the service was fantastic and the staff very polite i did find the food a bit of a let down and felt that the chef had just thrown stuff on the plate, my husbands seasonal vegetables were very burnt and inedible, we didnt want to complain as the staff were so busy and we felt the positives of our stay most certainly outweighed the negatives we will certainly be staying again x ;

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feed back regarding your recent stay with us. We are naturally most upset to learn that your restaurant experience was unsatisfactory due to the food presentation. This is very surprising as we receive excellent feed back about the food at the Nelson. Please accept my apologies that this did not meet our usual standards. I am pleased to read that the rest of your stay enjoyable and that you would return to the hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

On arriving we were greeted by a very cheerful and helpful young man, he told us the lift was slow, has we were on the 3rd floor and gave us the WI fi code (which was rubbish and kept disconnecting)we found the room very old fashioned and tired and of need of an update, the bed was very uncomfortable no mattress protector and very thin pillows, had an hole in the sheet and a blanket???
We had bed and breakfast the first one we had I asked for no sausage but instead of an extra piece of bacon it just was minus the sausage? And all it consisted of was 1 egg ,1 piece of bacon, 1 sausage and a small spoon of beans, yet the next morning I asked for the same no sausage it came with 3 pieces of bacon 2 hash browns an egg and loads of beans and a loads of mushrooms, must have been a different cook? Lol safe to say all ingredients value range.
We got our 2 night stay on a deal website which was not to bad, if we were paying full price I wouldn’t stay there at all

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the hotel. You feed back is very important and valuable to us. I am sorry to hear that there were inconsistencies with the food. This has been rectified at the hotel due to your comments. Similarly, we have taken on board your comments regarding the bed and pillows. The WI-FI signal is designed to connect in all public areas. It does reach some of our bedrooms but not all at present. We do pride ourselves on excellent hospitality and value for money and I am pleased that we have delivered on these aspects of your stay. We really do value your custom and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

I stayed here for a poker competion at a local Casino so didnt spend a lot of time in the room, but it was very spacious, mind you i did have a family room as a single, but it was huge!
the bathroom was clean as was the room, the shower was nice and hot,!

We recently stayed for two nights at the Nelson hotel, check in was very quick and I was told where the lift was as our room was on the 3rd floor, after several attmpts to call the lift I decided to walk, on reaching the 3rd floor, I found the lift door wedged open whilst someone was unloading towels.

The room (342) was on the small side but clean and adequate enough for our needs. I was woken on the saturday morning with the sound of birds flapping and cooing, there seemed to be birds in the loft above our room, this was mentioned to the manager who said he would deal with it, on the sunday morning there was very little noise from the birds.

The breakfast was very nice with a good choice to select from and the waitress very polite.

We only had one drink in the bar which was a little expensive but this is to be expected in a hotel.

Overall we had a good stay

Room Tip: My brother and his wife booked a twin room, (142) which was huge as it was a family room.
