Quaint English country pub style hotel. Friendly helpful staff who go out of their way to assist. Large, comfortable, clean room with mod-cons. Superb pressure in the shower. Great looking place with lovely food and good selection of beers.

We arrived at The Honest Lawyer and were very impressed by the look and presentation of the hotel. Guinness on tap was a bonus! The staff were fabulous.
We decided not to go in to Nelson for dinner but stay at the hotel. My partner had Pork Belly and says it was delicious. I had a seafood chowder and it was superb.
We went upstairs to get ready for bed as we had a heavy schedule the next day and that is where the problem was. What a noisy room! Room 5 above the door had no window seal and we heard every smoker and young 30 plus young persons conversation until 11pm. Interesting NOT! The talking was a real turn off. We also found planes a bit noisy.

Hey, put the smokers area away from accomodation and seal the windows. Then you will have us returning.

very comfy bed, period style accommodation, spacious shower, free wifi and onsite parking! love love love!
definitely worth a stay here if you would like a cozy, somewhere different whilst in the Nelson/Monaco area, would definitely recommend The Honest Lawyer Hotel!

We stayed at the Honest Lawyer over the weekend and we really love staying there. It has such wonderful character, very english in style and we were able to help ourselves to a continental breakfast which makes such a difference. It was quiet and our room had a gorgeous view out to the estuary. We will always come back and look forward to our next visit. Exellent room rate as well

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the estuary

Very good pint of Guinness and nice seating outside, great in summer. Start of Monaco so great for a Sunday stroll before or after. Decor special and old english type style with photos and horse riding equipment on the pub walls.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with friends
