“The only option in Trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2008

The Terra Nova is the only reasonable hotel in Trail to stay at. If you need to be in Trail and can't get a room here, stay in nearby Rossland, a 10 minute drive. Rooms and bedding and good and while the restaurant is acceptable, the pub attached to the hotel is a far better option. Skip the restaurant and grab dinner at the pub. The staff are competent and friendly. Note, ask for a room away from the highay though, as the hotel is in downtown Trail beside the region's major highway which can get loud. If you are there for more than a day, ask the hotel staff about some of the great Italian restaurants and coffee shops in Trail which are not easy to find.

We held a business event at the Terra Nova this June. Andrew (the Hotel Manager) and staff went above and beyond for us in many ways. They were very accomodating and we will book our event again with them in the future! The rooms were also very comfortable (down duvets, plush pillow tops and very clean!) Their food is delicious as well (we had breakfast in the restaurant and dinner in the pub-totally satisfied with all meals!)
Cheers and thank you Terra Nova for the best service and accomodations!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2007

The BW Terra Nova is really the only decent place to stay in Trail, BC, so it somewhat limits your choice!

The service is great, the place smells good all the time in the lobby. The Restaurant is ok, I havent tried room service yet. The rooms are typical BW rooms, although the halls are kind of dingy, and the elevator is frim 1950.

Good value for what you pay, and like I said, where else are you going to stay in Trail? They have a "spa and fitness centre" but don't let the name fool you! No pool??
