Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.


Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
