When I first saw the pictures of the Lord Nelson Hotel, I was a bit scared that it would be too uppity and proper : with chandeliers and antique furniture in the lobby, I was sure it was going to be uptight. It was totally the contrary. The gentlemen at the door always asked me how my day was and the staff was very polite. The beds were so comfortable, it was as if I was sleeping in a hug.

We had a great stay at the Lord Nelson. The location is excellent, close to Dalhousie University, restaurants, shopping, and the Public Gardens. The rooms are modern and clean. The aetvice is friendly, and the Arms Pub is very good!

Power outage therefore no water, shower or brush teeth. No call from front desk advising what was happening or how to get down to the lobby. Walked down 9 flights being pregnant with bags with no offer of assistance from staff. Classic room was very small and the TV had minimal viewing and remote didn't work well. Room was clean and had a great sleep otherwise.

Sat in bed at 2327 at night with the rock band downstairs sounding like it’s next door. We are on the second floor. Would we like ear plugs? On arriving the common room and dining room were not available to use. Wish we hadn’t spent over 400 dollars for the night.

Excellent Hotel. The staff is professional and friendly. The rooms are clean and come with everything you might need. I stayed at the Lord Nelson over 10 times while having radiation treatment, they always made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent location and walking distance to downtown and hospital. Would be great is they had a pool and gym. Restaurant too expensive but around the corner is Tim Hortons Starbucks McDonald’s and some excellent locally owned breakfast restaurants. Daytime Staff friendly and kind.

I booked this hotel for location and because it has a restaurant. Upon arrival I was informed that the restaurant was closed and only room service was available. The same high room charges were applied and I had a poor breakfast served. I’m sorry I booked this hotel because I feel tricked by this hotel.
