I booked a last minute break to this hotel. I had booked superior Double rooms which cost me fortune . What miserable tired rooms with worst looking carpet. TV was broken and was about to fall off and when I informed them they just put TV on the dressing table!! what a terible joke. No fridge and broken clock. I... More

Thank you for your review and naturally we very disappointed that you felt only able to give us 1 star rating, especially as the majority of our guests score us at three stars and above. Thank you also for bringing to our attention during your stay the maintenance issue with the TV. We would have ideally liked to have moved... More

I booked the hotel for one night as we were seeing a show at the BIC conveniently only 5 minutes walk away which is great. Paid a reasonable price considering it's the summer holidays. Arrived at the hotel at 3pm roughly and we told there was plenty of free parking (one of the reasons we booked this particular hotel over... More

This small hotel is great value out of season with polite, helpful staff and a friendly atmosphere. The location places you within a short hop, skip and jump from the beach and a 20 minute stroll from the town and park. We had a refurbished family room which was small but beautifully designed with a view over the road which... More

Writing during breakfast from hotel: really friendly and prompt service and unbeatable breakfast (both for taste & value)! Don't forget to try their chocolate & orange croissants! Comfy beds too. Better overall than the otherwise nice Travelodge Terminal 5 (Heathrow), where we stayed the night before.

Just back from 2 night stay. 2 adults + 2 children. Lovely quad room and spacious bathroom. Wonderfully situated near beach and car not necessary. However they do have free parking if you arrive earlyish. Reception and restaurant staff very helpful. Just a suggestion. Why not offer a small cooked breakfast for children (& adults) for a cheaper price? The... More

Came here for may bank holiday weekend for a family break and the wheels festival, we paid a lot less than the other hotels were and had a lovely big room with huge windows!!

I stayed here as part of a hen party of 11, good sized rooms and bathroom for what we needed it for! (to get ready to go out and sleep). Beds we're very comfortable and staff friendly. Would stay again! Nearby to nice restaurants & also a few minute walk to the beach.

i took the family to Bournemouth on a late booking. I was slightly dubious when I booked this hotel, as I'd stayed very close by in another hotel on a stag weekend. Indeed, most of the lower budget accommodation is found in this area, but I was pleasantly surprised by Travelrest. The room was a good size, with one double... More

We stayed at the Travelrest for one night only and we got what we wanted: small but clean room with basic facilities. Staff at the reception very friendly and polite. Had a bit of trouble getting hot water for the shower in the morning (old building...). Was OK for a quick rest after a day at the beach, but we... More

Thank you for your which we really appreciate.

We used this as a stopover after getting the late ferry from Guernsey. The car park is very small but managed to find a parking place in the adjacent street. On arrival we were told to pay a extra £8 for the dogs which took me by surprise as this was not mentioned when booking online. Most b&bs weve used... More
