Thanks Stuart. For health and safety reasons, all guests staying over night on these premises must be registered. CCTV shows that you did not registered the female guest, you brought into your room for an overnight stay.

The property is very good value. The room was very clean and had a generous kitchen. The room was quiet and was assecible to downtown, only a short walk to the cinema. The management was very attentive. We shall return.

I stayed 2 nights (1-3rd March 2019) in Unit 1. The welcome I received was SO nice, & the king-sized bed with wool underlay cradled me the best nights’ sleep I’ve had in months. I very much liked the ambience & character of my suite & The Lodge. Tis not ultra modern. ‘‘Tis not ultra old. ‘Tis ultra clean & ultra comfortable & I have no hesitation in recommending Trafalgar Lodge to any travellers. Yrs faithfully, Jan Randle. 0272953902. ,
