Having stayed at Trades for work in August, I noticed it was open over the Christmas period so I decided to book for 4 nights for a bit of me time. From the moment I arrived the staff, especially Neil and Adrian couldn't do enough and my room had even been upgraded. The room was immaculate, the bedding had a... More

Yet another great stay thanks to Neil, Adrian and the staff – you do a great job to makes us feel at home. I am never disappointed and despite those who critise the hotel – it’s great value for money. It’s gay hotel for gay men so if you want to enjoy yourself do so. If you are disappointed don't...

I checked out of Trades a couple of hours ago having been there from Thursday til Sunday. When I arrived on Thursday night the check in process by a friendly member of staff was faultless. My room was on the second floor to the back right hand side of the hotel. The room was en-suite and had a double bed... More

Firstly, if you don't know what Trades is all about, don't go. The place is an institution. It's friendly, cruisy. The bar is great and most of the staff (with the odd exception) friendly. The sheets in our room were clean. That was the only thing. The floor was disgusting. I don't think anyone had used a pipe on the... More

This was the first time at Trades - it had been recommended by friends on several occasions so decided to give it a go. Very easy to book over the phone. The good service continued on arrival, Neil was on reception and he soon put us at ease on arrival explaining how the hotel was run and facilities available -... More
