4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

With a river view and easy walk to town and sights of interest Trailways was very convenient. The room was comfortable and the restaurant on sight was lovely with pleasant staff. Parking was easy and the information centre very close just over the bridge. Neilson is a hidden gem ,a pretty little town with lots of nice eateries.

The room was very quiet, clean and well laid out. The spa bath was a bonus. The breakfast in the room was huge, amazing. The location of this motel... More

We were very pleased with our room at the Trailways Hotel in Nelson. It was good sized with a sofa so we both had room to sit other than on the bed. We had a view of the river where the water goes up and down with the tides. The bathroom looked to be very clean and recently redone with... More

Rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly, all of them willing to go that little bit extra to make our stay wonderful. The view from the room at night (overlooking the river) was magical. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Down in Nelson to do some tramping in the Kahurangi National Park. Trailsways is close to town center and grocery stores. Good breakfast options for carbo loading. Rooms are spacious. Did find the spa handy after a week in the bush.

Don’t be confused with the outside appearance of this Hotel. It is very nice, new and modern hotel in a good location in Nelson with a nice restaurant however we were very disappointed from the room we got. We booked a 2 nights studio room which in New Zealand standards and the price we paid should include Queen or King... More

Well tiled areas that look clean, new and smart. Black and white theme. The in-room shower had 6 extra nozzles down the wall aimed at the body. Enhancing the showering rinsing efficiency. Easy walk to town and food facilities. Soon rooms have a view over the river.

Thank you for taking time to review Trailways Hotel. Great to see you enjoyed one of our new spa showers, these are proving very popular. It is a great spot here by the River, still easy walking to the town centre, movies, markets, galleries etc. We look forward to an opportunity to host you again. More
