We stayed here for 2 nights and experienced a pleasant stay. Our room was spotlessly clean , the tea/coffee tray was replenished daily and an extra touch was bottled water and a cafetier( loving my coffee, I enjoyed this). We stayed in room 39 to the back of the hotel, very quiet even though on a busy main road. The... More

Room was a bit too small for me my partner and our son but it was clean. We ordered room service (pizza) and when it came it was burnt on one side, when we paid for it the next day I informed them about this and the response I got was "oh right". Was not worth the £6.50 and was... More

Ideal location for early morning crossing to Caen with Brittany Ferries. Comfortable room and friendly reception staff. Booked room only so no comment about breakfast. Easy access from M3/m27 and then direct drive to the ferry port

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
