"This was one of the best hotel we stayed in throughout our 18 days journey in New Zealand. The staff was attentive and friendly. When the receptionist was busy with another visitor, the manager/supervisor from the room came out straight away to service us. This happened twice to us. We were given a room with one queen bed and a single bed. The room was huge and clean with cooking facilities. The bathroom was big too complete with all the toiletries required. Internet was free for 500Mb with good connection and we can ask for more if we run out of the usage. Overall, this hotel was great value for money and I highly recommend this hotel for people visiting Nelson. I would stay here again when I am visiting the area in the future."

"Well it’s opened since 2017 so basically still pretty spanking new. Location is pretty central. Free bfast for my stay and Free bike rental too(don’t expect any hardtail mtb and hey, it’s Free). Dorm Room with bunks has high ceiling and I don’t have to bend or lower my head much when standing on top. Nice lounge area big tv screen Big dining hall and Long table. All in all if you’re here in Nelson solo or a group this is worth considering. "

"Room wasn't really clean. Glasses, plates and spare pillows and blankets needed a good clean. There were old coffee cup stains on bedside table and dining table. Carpet wasn't vacuumed when room was serviced. Wifi was limited to 500mb per day with the option to purchase more which seemed a little cheap. Definitely not the standard I've experienced at other Quest hotels. On a more positive note, staff were very friendly and helpful and location was fantastic. Central to bars and restaurants in Nelson. "

"This was one of my favourite places I’ve stayed in in New Zealand. I stayed for 3 nights in a private room. The decor is classic but clean and functional. The owners were brilliant and went out of their way to answer all of my questions and give advice on local activities and such. Well equipped kitchens, comfy bed. The owner even leant me an old bike to cycle into town on which made for a good trip out. Decent bikes are available to hire. No problems with the WiFi and always a space to park my car. Not far from town either. Thank you."

"Was extremely impressed with the facility and its modern and ergonomic chattels. Jenny and Murray were extremely friendly and assisted in all facets of my stay. Highly recommend this property. Price was a little high but NYE certainly put all the Nelson hotel prices through the roof! It will be my accommodation of choice on my next stay! :) "

"We had stayed at Queenstown, Dunedin and Christchurch as we were on a drive holiday and Nelson was our next stop. The beds at all the other hotels were very uncomfortable. We had such a good night's rest at the Trailways in Nelson that instead of leaving early in the morning for Hokitika, we slept in and left a lot later as none of us really wanted to get out of bed. After the hot spa bath and comforatble bed, we left Nelson feeling relaxed and refreshed and ready to take on the drive to Greymouth and Hokitika. We would definitely recommend Trailways Hotel to everyone we know travelling to Nelson. Also loved the recycling initiative taken on by the hotel. "

More about Nelson

Geographically speaking, Nelson is the center of New Zealand, and this is certainly the city’s biggest claim to fame. It’s also one of the oldest settled cities in the country, so there’s a lot to see and do in this city. Located at the region known as the Nelson Tasman, Nelson is just a few hours north of Wellington and located among some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the country. As Nelson is one of the most populated cities in New Zealand, the Nelson Airport is one of the busiest and serves flights to most of the region’s largest cities.

Some of Nelson’s oldest buildings are certainly a must-see, such as the Christ Church Cathedral, which is an iconic landmark of the city and one of the most photographed attractions. The church is still in operation and serves the community on a regular basis, and people often visit to hear the choir. On the other hand, Suter Art Gallery is another iconic landmark that also serves as a great museum and art gallery, containing a large collection of works by major artists.

In the Nelson center is located the often visited Center of New Zealand Monument, which marks the geographic point of the country along with a beautiful view of the rest of the city from the top of the hill. It’s a great place for a tourist phot opportunity, but also a relaxing afternoon along the walkways and small cafes in the area. As one of the biggest and most populated cities in the country, Nelson certainly has a great deal to offer any visitor, including the nature lovers and adventure seekers.
