Start to finish a very pleasant stay with very friendly staff, clean rooms, good comfy beds and a super breakfast which is a lot cheaper if you book with this hotel direct. Very close to lots of restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Will definitely stay again.

We needed to book two room at fairly short notice as we had a funeral to attend in Portchester, our first choice would always be a premier Inn, but the nearest ones were very expensive, so I searched Late Rooms for accommodation at an acceptable room rate and Travel Rest came out tops. OK, so that's how we ended up... More

I have to say that we booked at the TravelRest because the local Premier Inns where we normally stay were fully booked. But we may just have found a better alternative. We were met by a friendly manager who checked us in, told us where everything was and pointed out our room - at the back of the hotel overlooking... More

We had a quiet room at the back - something you should ask for as it is near a major busy road. I thought the room was not great value at £88 with breakfast added on at £8 each to make a price for a couple of over £100 per night. For that I would have expected a bigger room... More

We stayed for five nights in the hotel's disabled room. I think the beds in this room are ready for replacing as there was a very thick mattress cover on top. As I am disabled and small I found it difficult to get into bed and it was a bit like sleeping on a blancmange. To be fair when I... More
