Nice for a night or two

This hotel is in a pretty good location, in walking distance from the city centre and a lot of great restaurants. My only gripe would be that the king bed was two single beds pushed together which was a little disappointing, but not the end of the world.

Beautiful Nelson

Hotel perfect for a Nelson stay. Easy walk to town and along the river. Restaurant was good and staff lovely. The town is delightful and easy to access the National park. Our room overlooked the river and for our 3 day stay was worth the extra cost. The king size bed was very comfortable. All we could wish for.

Great value and overall wonderful property

This hotel was very clean and comfortable with a lovely little balcony overlooking the river. The reception staff were the highlight extremely helpful and obliging and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable including adding crockery, cutlery and milk to our room as we were travelling on a budget with our toddler. Extra benefit was getting a porta-cot added free to our room. Would definitely stay at Trailways hotel again given the opty.

Good stopover in Nelson

Very clean, modern hotel. Very helpful staff. Good chef. Breakfast needs substantial improvement (both in quality and variety).

Honeymoon

A clean and tidy hotel. We found it a little noisy with noise from the room next door being heard through the wall and the bathroom vent. THE mattresses were hard and being a king bed meant there was an even harder join in the middle of the bed ...just what a honeymooning couple longs for!!!!

Perfect for our requirements.

Great room overlooking the river - making for a restful setting. Outdoor seating plus always a bonus to have a desk and chairs to sit at inside. Close proximity to town centre so easy walking distance. Thank you :)

A Terrific Spot

Totally enjoyed Trailways. Room was large and comfortable & a walk away from Nelson central shops. Their restaurant was very good & free parking along with friendly staff made for a perfect 2 night stay.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Make sure you visit the WOW museum, approx. 15 min drive from Nelson. The scenic drive there is wonderful too.
