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!


Located close to shopping. Rooms lovely and spacious. The bathroom floor was heated and room featured a spa bath. Bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept on for several years. Restaurant had lovely menu and room service was also available. Staff were extremely helpful. Only place I will stay in Nelson from now on.


Fabulous Hotel and Restaurant. The Staff are so helpful and welcoming. The food at The Tides Restaurant superb. Would definitely advise everyone to come. A big congratulations to all for such an excellent place.

"The hotel was handy to most things that a person visiting requires. I especially enjoyed the friendliness of staff and the exceptional meals which were beautifully presented. The staff recognised and acknowledged me each day. I have recommended it as the best hotel experience I have had in a very long time. Congratulations to the staff and management for making the stay such an enjoyable one."
