Stayed here on an overnight from the late ferry from Caen. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and I had a good night's sleep. I didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on that but if I were in the area, I'd come here again. Staff are helpful and friendly.

We stayed one night as we passed thru the area and had a perfectly sound night's sleep in accommodation which was plain (albeit a little tired), clean and served the purpose. We didn't have breakfast so cannot testify to its quality but if you are happy with a Travel Lodge, you probably wouldn't be disappointed with the TravelRest.

This hotel is easy to find and there is ample parking. The rooms and decor are dated. The blinds were shabby and hanging off and the bathroom was a bit grubby! My room must have been over the kitchen as the window had been left open and the room smelled like food which wasn't too pleasant. However the kitchen soon... More

I had contacted the hotel beforehad to ask for a quiet room, I get a prompt reply and was given the room upstairs at the back of the hotel. Large well kept gardens, and a large carpark. Happy...

Was not expecting too much based on reading some other reviews, but was pleasantly suprised in a lot of areas. The hotel is set back off the road with a large car park at the front so parking is well catered for, it also has well kept grounds and a garden area at the back where you could sit outside... More

Friendly staff, public areas very good and the standard of cleanliness in the rooms was excellent. I liked the approach to making me feel that I was in a Hotel that cared. I was interested (having already booked) to read other reviews and found myself wondering what some people expect? It is comfortable, well appointed, friendly and relaxing. There were... More

Tried charging me for the room, even though it was already paid for! Room was old fashioned, the bed sheet didn’t fit over the mattress. Staines around the toilet floor. Pubes on the tiles in the shower. Shower was hot/cold/hot/cold/hot/cold/hot/cold - get the idea? Breakfast was OK, a fine selection of fruit if you like oranges, oranges and more oranges.
