What our guests say


Excellent location, just minutes away from town. Very clean and comfortable room, great value for money. The highlight was the very helpful and friendly staff. I came here after a very long and tiring trip so this was ideal.

We usually try to stay here when we visit Nelson. Great location by the river and short stroll to town. Staff always very friendly. Rooms recently refurbished and spotlessly clean and comfortable, love the spa shower! Superb dinner in the Tides Restaurant there too!

Loved every part of my stay with Trailways Hotel! Really recommend it. Great new breakfast menu as well !! The staff are friendly. The view of the esplanade/river was delightful. The location to town was ideal with only a 1 minute walk to the main city centre of nelson!
