“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Just spent four days at the hotel. 3 x family rooms. Rooms 222, 320 and 422. Rang up on day of arrival and requested sea view rooms. View couldn't be better. Huge rooms. Yes rooms are hot but keep windows open and all rooms had fans. Park on the road by the hotel - FREE 24/7 even in Summer. All rooms new refurbished, cleaned daily. Great hotel for dogs, green and beach 30 seconds away. Great location. We heard no noise as night. Really good stay 5*****

A huge thank you to the whole team. We all had a wonderful time. Perfect location for us and everything we needed, big clean rooms, well stocked bar - we didn't eat on site, just drank. Anything we asked for or about was sorted asap.

What really makes this place is the staff - Everyone we met was kind and helpful. We weren't the easiest guests, but who doesn't like a challenge ;). You all need a nice big pay rise! Hope to be returning later in the year for another long weekend.

Thank you so much - it was everything I had wanted from the weekend.

After reading reviews on this website I was expecting the room to be hot and it was. I rang ahead six months in advance after booking my five night stay online to request a room with a sea view. I was told that they would do their best so I was very pleased to be allocated room 306 on arrival. I paid £162 in total. However, only one of the four windows opened partly, so we had to have the curtains drawn during the day and use two fans but the room was still hot, hotter than outside which reached 30 degrees Celcius during our stay. Despite this the room had recently been refurbished so was in good conditional and clean and there was barely any noise from other rooms or outside. The bed was comfortable for me as I sleep on my back but not for my partner who sleeps on his front. I was scared to move in case I fell off because the bed was quite small and definately not "king size" as described, (I recently stayed at the Caernarfon Travelodge where their beds were "king size"). I have been told that none of the rooms on the front of the building have a bath. The bathroom was very small in this room. The room was only serviced 2 out of the 4 times during the stay which was below the usual Travelodge standards and the choice of TV channels is very poor consisting of Channels 1-5; BBC News Channel; Film 4; E4: 4 Music and some radio channels and I wasn't able to access the free wifi (30 minutes free). I have stayed at this hotel four times now and have always had an enjoyable stay because the hotel is so well located just a short walk from the beach and the town centre as well as being within easy distance of lots of attractions including Brownsea Island, Chesil beach and the Jurassic Coast. We did not have any problem parking for free on the streets just outside the hotel and found the hotel carpark to be nearly always full.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view but beware the room will be very hot in the summer. Choose the back of the build...

Staying on business during July, arrived to find NO parking space available... The staff's suggestions for parking proved to be an additional £10 fee without security.
Very hot room with inadequate ventilation made sleeping very difficult. Street noise made opening the window impossible.
Breakfast was so crowded and unappealing, it wasn't worth staying...
Not an experience I could recommend to others---

Stayed one night in July, weather extremely hot. Family room 223 looked on to the road with another hotel opposite. There were no net curtains so anyone in the opposite hotel could look directly into the room. This felt very uncomfortable. There was a fan in the room thankfully, but out of three sash windows only the centre one opened for about three inches (for safety, understandably), and it didn't stay open. Someone before us had kindly propped it open with a bottle of shampoo. Shouldn't complain about the heat but the room was stifling right through the night. It would have been better if all the windows would have opened from the top or the bottom.
We appreciate that cleaners very rarely have enough time to complete their task to a level that they would be happy with themselves. The bathroom floor was really grubby and dirty and could have done with a good scrub but where is the time for this...?
The bedside lights pointed down to the floor and not to the bed as they had lost their flexibility, so no good for reading by.
The carpet wasn't as clean as it could have been.
Having said all this, the hotel was its usual good Travelodge standard and we would still use the hotel chain again.
