Loved this hotel!! For the staff specifically. Trish was a doll, so friendly and kind every time we saw her. Great recommendations for places to visit nearby, and food. We really appreciated how sincere she was. They had construction going on and we didn't mind one bit. (It was never happening as we were sleeping, just over the days we...

I stayed here for one night recently with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed it. While there is extensive renovations going on , it does not get in your way. The room was overlooking the harbour , the food was excellent , the staff were extra friendly. It has a free car park on site.Would I stay there again , definitely.

Had a great time while staying at the Trident. We have stayed before and the service is always top class. We were told that check in time was 4.00 pm but we were able to go to our room at 2.00pm which made a big difference to us. Will be returning again
