We stayed for two nights in February. Room was well appointed. Good breakfast, excellent seafood dinner, friendly staff. Hotel is an easy five minute walk to town centre. The terrace bar by the river was an excellent place to unwind after a busy day.

I stayed here for 5 days and loved how close it was to the city. I should have read more reviews before booking as I would have requested a room on the river side away from the restaurant and lobby. My room was closest to the public areas and was quite noisy at times from people in the restaurant, lobby... More

Stayed at trailways many time and this Time it was nice to be recognised as having stayed before, we were also given a riverside room not the poolside which we booked. We always have breakfast on one of the mornings we are there and is consistently good. Thanks for another great stay and great staff

I was booked in here for two nights as part of a tour. All the staff I encountered were very welcoming and accommodating. For example, on the first morning I was able to have an early breakfast in the dining room before it officially opened, as I had to be ready for my coach pickup at 7.15am. I had one... More

We stayed for one night. The reception staff were warm and welcoming. The room was very comfortable with everything we needed - even free wifi. The town is within easy walking distance with plenty of choice for where to eat and drink. Great place to stay - highly recommended.

This hotel is on the river and is walking distance to town centre. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Good size bathroom with the little extras, hair dryer and the tiled bathroom floor had under floor heating which would be good in winter. Our room was down stairs and had sliding glass door that opened into the pool area... More

We recently stayed overnight in a ground floor studio spa unit. It was clean and spacious and provided everything we needed for our stay. We chose Trailways for a few reasons, this was not our first visit, we have always enjoyed the friendly team at Reception, the cleanliness of the room and the convenient location to the town Centre.

This is a good hotel in an excellent location. We stayed two nights in a room with a balcony overlooking the river. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the town centre and the marina. We enjoyed a walk along the river bank, which included the small botanic gardens. We ate in the... More

I chose Trailways for the location, and would probably do it again. But. . . there are some buts. First, I booked through an outside booking site, which seemed to irritate management. When I arrived I was told rather sharply that I would avoid "fees" by booking directly with the hotel. (Later, when I was less cowed, I asked, and... More
