We travel to Bournemouth every year for an event at the BIC.
The location is ideal. Bournemouth is always packed that weekend. The travelodge has been refurbished since our last visit but wish they had put more thought into location of mirrors and sockets and the number of sockets.The rooms were warm but fans are provided. Parking can be a problem unless you are lucky enough to find a space. The only downside was the restaurant late in the day when the cook was rather unpleasant to us and couldn't cope with our request for food however the reception girls were great and gave us local takeaway menus and allowed us to use the resaurant to eat our takeaways.
Wish Travelodge would throw more staff and resources at the hotel when they are full to capacity.
Having said all that we will be staying here again.
