“Good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Cheap and cheerful. Good value, good pool. Perfect for lone business traveller. Staff friendly. Lodge rooms ok, Better than some in main hotel , but steep stairs to top floor. Always slept well, no complaints really. Good buffet breakfast. Fantastic location and plentiful parking. Not a hotel for young revellers!

We had a great time at this hotel the service was first class very friendly and helpful. We had a meal in the restaurant which was very good at a reasonable price. The breakfast was realy good value for money and very nice. We would book this hotel again next time we visit Bournemouth

Surprised at the negative reviews! Partner and I had a great stay at the Trouville - room was spacious and spotlessly clean, bathroom newly refurbished, and very quiet. Staff were extremely accommodating and professional. We had incorrectly booked room only but the staff ensured that we had breakfast for the remainder of our stay at the pre-booked price. Breakfast was freshly cooked and there was a wide variety. Chose hotel for close proximity to the BIC and was not disappointed. Close proximity to the town centre and beach also. Ample free parking. Clean and inviting communal areas. Loud pidgeons, however. Enjoyed so much booked for next year!

Room Tip: 3rd floor and above

Bed in room 102 old and sagging crippled my back and I asked for a single mattress to be laid on the floor, but I was offered another room (101) not next door as might be expected but around several corners up and down a couple of short flights of steps where the bed was slightly better, not good but slightly better.

Water in the bathroom was signed as not drinkable so perhaps a bottle of mineral water in the room would be acceptable.

An old building, or rather a chain of three buildings linked together crating a maze of corridors and a series of interminable fire doors to negotiate and manhandle your luggage through.

Both of the rooms were used had windows looking onto interior walls and roofs that were particularly disgusting due to the pigeon droppgs and and assortment of other detritus that has accumulated on the window sills and and in the “safety nets” that I presume were installed to catch heavier stuff falling from above. As an old building there were other problems, every floor board creaked hardly any windows could be opened (and we were lucky enough to be there in a very hot period)

A good hearty breakfast but Breakfast tea only 1 teabag in a huge teapot.

When I first arrived the hotel seemed nice. Check in was swift and staff were nice and efficient. The room was large and not too bad decor wise. The bathroom was in need of some redecorating. Now the interesting part! Our room had 2 radiators in it Both were on full, only one had a thermostat to turn it off. We were staying in JULY in was at least 25 degrees outside!! It was so uncomfortable even with the windows open. Outside the windows were the air conditioning vents which were very noisy but we put up with the noise rather than boil. I asked at reception if our heating could be turned off and after some difficulty making the receptionist understand what I wanted I was told it would be checked. When we returned that evening the heating was still on and we noticed the radiators in the hallways were also on! There was no chance of our room cooling down with heat being pumped around the whole hotel. The restaurant had the air con on and the windows open!
Also in the evening there was only one member of staff working at the bar who was also seeing to reception so we waited at least half an hour to get served a drink! If they turned their heating off they would be able to afford to pay another member of staff!
Would not stay there again on principle even though the location is good.

The hotel is traditional but contemporary. If you are walking to the hotel be warned its on a steep hill and even the fittest guy with luggage will find it a challenge.
The bedrooms are a good size and the bathroom could do with been updated. There is a shower over the bath but is connected to the hot and cold taps. The room can get warm in the summer and if you are at the front with the window open it gets noisy with traffic and party of people going to town. We did not have breakfast or dinner there but did hear from other guests it was great.

Having read previous reviews, I was surprised not to encounter squeaky floorboards and faded grandeur. A clean, well-serviced, spacious room on the top floor (217), reached by a perfectly adequate lift.
Good location for the front and the town. Breakfast and evening meal were fine, and I'd be happy to stay there again.
