Main characters: 1) me and the missus - OAPs, late 70s, visiting family in Fareham, staying 2 nights 2) Judith - proprietor, landlady, front desk, cook, bottle washer, and everything else besides 3) Some friendly young staff. Hotel trying to be like Premier Inn (PI), almost but not quite getting there. TravelRest is apparently a network - but it's only... More

Needed a last minute stay in Fareham as I was attending a family funeral and only needed an overnight stay. Had used Premier inns on previous occasions, but this time I researched somewhere more intimate and more central. I was pleased to find Travelrest. Polite and courteous lady on the phone arranged my booking with minimum of fuss. The location... More

Our second stay in this hotel within six months. Rooms are clean, staff very friendly and very helpful, making us coffee, tea, and hot chocolate late in the evening so we were able to relax in the lounge area with some friends. Good cooked breakfast. Highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

Stayed for two nights whilst visiting family in the area. Good clean room, very friendly staff. Excellent cooked breakfast which set us up for the day. Pet friendly which was why we chose the hotel. Would stay again as excellent value for money.

A great choice of hotel for my family before we all attended a passing out ceremony at HMS Collingwood in the early morning. Chosen purely because it offered disabled facilities for my elderly parents I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of accommodation in all 3 separate rooms booked and the friendliness of the staffI must say though the standard...

This was a short stay break of 3 nights in mid September 2015. Comfortable, well maintained room. Excellent breakfast choice. Also ideal for accessing the surrounding area: I went by train (station just an easy walk of a quarter of a mile away) to Portsmouth Harbour to see the Historic Dockyard and The Spinnaker. Friendly and helpful staff.
