This is a beautiful hotel and it's in a great location however they seemed to be in the middle of doing updates. The floor we were on had many areas where wall paper was being replaced or repaired. The room had many updates but it was cool with its lack of art or even any information on Local events. There...

I spent 10 days there over 2 trips in November/December. They have a discounted rate for folks visiting or using the local hospitals which was appreciated. It would be an even better discount assuming they keep the same rate in the busy summer months! I found the front desk staff unimpressive and distracted. I checked in late in the day...

Stayed here New Year's Eve and had a wonderful time. There was a wedding the night I was there and the staff was very helpful and accomodating even though they we're swamped by the wedding. My room had just been recently renovated and everything was clean. The hotel was in a good location too. Right on the corner of Spring...

Booked this weekend away on Hotwire.com blind booking for our 27th anniversary. Was pleasantly surprised to get the Lord Nelson. When we got there the booking was not in the hotel system, but show the front desk staff our receipt and she took care of it right away. Great staff. All very friendly. The room was okay. Had a mysterious...

It is an older hotel but recently renovated and has all the necessities. Beautiful park right across the street. Located in an easy walking distance of all the nightlife and attractions. We had...

Sure helped settle nerves having a room to be able to use as a base during the wedding day. Check in smooth. Valay service. Asked for an additional chair and it was brought to our room. Comfy bed. Clean.

After a very long train trip, I checked into the Lord Nelson and arrived in the most disgusting room I have seen in a long time. No. 455 was for a disabled person which I am not but that should not allow for such horrible furniture (old and banged up), frayed towels, curtains stained and falling off the rods. I...

I'm giving The Lord Nelson a five star review because of the incredible customer service that I received from Lisa and Rebecca. There were flaws in the stay that would otherwise render my experience four stars, and I have never left a five star review before, but though there are flaws everywhere, very seldom do I receive the flawless customer...

I chose this hotel because the hotel where I normally stay in Halifax was unavailable, so I thought I would give Lord Nelson a try. I was disappointed by the small room, renovated on the cheap. The furniture arrangement did not make the guest comfortable (the TV did not even face the bed or the armchair!) and it did not...

Dear Guest, It is unfortunate that you felt this way. Our renovations have not been done "on the cheap" as we are currently working our way down from the 9th floor and 8th floors (which are both almost completed) and as such, you may not have had a chance to experience our newly renovated rooms. As much as we would...
