Welcome to Railway Stays, a shiny, brand, spanking new website dedicated to covering many of the world’s best railway hotels and train-themed accommodation!
We’re still pretty new as you can probably tell, but in the near future you can expect to find the following stuff here:
Luxury Trains & Epic Rail Journeys
We’ll provide you with an overview of all of the world’s best luxury trains, from the deluxe delights of the Venice Simplon Orient Express and Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer to include a choice selection of the most memorable long haul and land cruise rail journeys, such as the mighty Trans Siberian and Amtrak’s coast to coast California Zephyr.
There are a number of train hotels – or really hotel trains as they should be called – which offer very comfortable sleeping car accommodation, not to mention many night trains all over the world which will save you the cost of a hotel room while you’re whisked across vast expanses. We won’t attempt to cover all the sleeper trains of course but will aim to highlight some of the finest in each continent.
