Trailways Hotel Nelson, Nelson, New Zealand
mixed experience
On the positive side: well-located, clean, pleasant staff. On the negative side: charges extra 2% to use any credit card; asks guests to tell them when in the day they plan to arrive; circular shower rail in much of the bathroom is at 6' high and bumped head at 6'2".

Nice room - frustrating curtains!
Room compa but comfortable. Bathroom sink a bit squeezed for space for toiletries. My main issue was needing to strategically position curtains as they were slightly too small so got light through regardless of final position.

Staff could be more passionate
A comfortable stay but felt like staff were just going through the motions when we spoke to them, not overly passionate.

Trailways Hotel Nelson, Nelson, New Zealand
I had booked in for two nights here but ended up in hospital & missed the first night. The room was a bit tight but adequate & very close to Nelson CBD. Enjoyable & enjoyed the paper being delivered.
