Stayed for 1 night. Arrived late due to ferry delay. Was greeted and made to feel welcomed. Our room was clean and met all our expectations. Coffee and tea making facilities and what turned out to be a really comfortable bed. We paid extra for breakfast and again was not disappointed. Well presented and piping hot. Couldn't fault it.

This was our second stay here - the first being a pot luck choice from the web last year when looking for somewhere convenient for west of Fareham and the motorway while visiting friends. Proved a lucky choice! Plenty of easy free parking, fast free internet (that even worked perfectly for us in our ground floor room), nice comfortable rooms... More

We stayed at this hotel in August 2014. We contacted the hotel beforehand to get a specific room and we were happy with what we got. We did not opt for breakfast because we were out late and did not want to get up so early. However the dining room looks out on to the garden and a patio and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights- one would have thought we would be accommodated in a pleasant room. Our room (27) was at the rear and was quiet. The towels were good although you had to request a change. Here endeth the good news - the rest was extremely poor! The room was small for a double and in need of... More

Lured by the nice TripAdvisor rating of this hotel, we decided to make a one night step-over in Fareham on our way from Cornwall to Dover. What a disappointment: ran down bed, a shower fluctuating between cold and hot water without human intervention, an 8 pound breakfast containing ham which was way beyond its shelf life. The only good thing... More

We stayed here for a family celebration. Booked as it was a doggy friendly listed hotel, and they couldn't be friendlier. Helpful from the very start.

I recently stayed at this hotel whilst visiting relatives in Whitely. I made the booking by telephone and was told to pay on arrival, which is unlike many hotels that require payment up front. When we arrived the duty manager was very pleasant and the whole booking in process was completed very quickly. We had booked two single rooms for... More

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.
