A last minute decision to fly to Trennerys was a great idea. The landing strip is fairly well kept and had we phoned ahead of time we would have been collected but the stroll across was pleasant. The reception staff were welcoming and even though we had not made a booking they were more than obliging in accommodating us. Our room was clean and comfortable. We missed having a table and chairs on our patio though. The food in the restaurant was tasty, well presented and ample. The staff without exception were friendly and helpful. We went for a lovely walk along the unspoiled beach. I would have loved to have spent more time at Trennerys and will definitely return. This is without a shadow of doubt exceptional value for money for couples and families alike.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was very restful The staff were very helpful especially when we were locked out of our room due to a broken lock. The food was superb and well served. We sought advice and went on one of the trails which was most enjoyable. We have recommended the holiday to friends. Our only criticism was that the rooms could benefit from upgrading rather, i.e. painting, separate shower. On the whole a very pleasant experience.

Very nice comfortable hotel for a family break.Rooms are very comfortable rondavels now ensuite. Staff very friendly and efficient.Food very good and saturday seafood buffett excellent.My only complaint was the security light outside the window (no 16) shone brightly into room forcing one to close night curtains which made waking up early a issue but not a problem if you want to chill and sleep in.easily accessible via the pont at Kei Mouth. Enjoyed our family get together .

We stayed over Christmas. Wonderful location, great home cooked food and superb staff.... Went on guided hike through gorge that was very informative, finishing with a dip in the rock pool. Stunning stretch of beach in front of hotel.
Rooms are clean and lots of activities....Had great fun in bar each evening.
There were lots of little kids but seperate dining and nannies kept them busy.

So we were two women (early 30s) traveling alone and we rather enjoyed our stay here. Did a lot of hiking (10km round trip along the beach takes you to a very cool shipwreck and past some stunning vistas) and kayaking and we even took a tour to a nearby rock pool where you can jump off the cliff into the deep water.

Overall we had a great time and the food was lovely! We probably should have done our research a bit though and realised it's family place because there were a lot of kids (not our preference) but in the end it was fine. Mostly we were away from the common areas and the kids seemed to have lots to do so did not make much noise, etc.

One downside was the trip to the rock pool...the trip itself was lovely but they seemed to have waaaay overbooked and so we had to do a lot of waiting for boats and other people and it was a lot of wasted time in my opinion. I think they should structure those better - especially since they said we would be back by noon but we were not back till almost 3pm! And we had to leave that day to reach elsewhere by nightfall! Be sure to ask if you go on the guided trips how many people are coming with you.....

Otherwise a good value for money place and we enjoyed it!

We spent three nights at Trennerys in December having last visited more than 20 years ago. The hotel still has its old charm and is in a beautiful location an is easily accessible via the ferry over the kei river. We were very impressed with the food and service and were unfortunately not around for the seafood dinner on Saturday. We found the room very basic although comfortable. Definitely will be returning for a longer break.
