“Good location but hotel very dated”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

in the right location but in desperate need of a complete overhaul, both décor which was rather shabby, very squeaky floor boards, a lift which Charles Dickens would have been at home in.
The other thing that need overhauling is the service/attitude of the staff from reception to the restaurant. add that to a 40 minute wait between courses
But for all that it was cheap at £70 per room bed and breakfast
You get what you pay for

Room Tip: Room facing the main road was very noisy

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Trouville Hotel.
Yes the hotel is somewhat dated with creaky floorboards etc, but then if you want a characterless or generic hotel then there's always the Holiday Inn.
Found the hotel to be in a great location within minutes of the many bars and restaurants and also a short walk to the beach. Didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food.
Would definitely stay again.

Great location but very dated in need of an overhaul and some serious maintenance . Scary lifts and the squeakiest floor boards I have ever heard not a good place to stay with children or if disabled as to get from ground floor to top you need to change lifts and one has a door you would expect to find on the titanic.

Having just returned from a Hen weekend at the Trouville we had an excellent time. The hotel was really good, although creaky floorboards in our rooms! We had rooms 1,2,3 and 4 which were quite secluded. The breakfast was very good, nice restaurant and bar/lounge area. Very good position for bars, beach and town, all walkable. The hotel is up a hill, but up until 11pm the back door through the car park cuts off a good part of it. Even though to my knowledge there were two stag weekends there we did not hear them, just passed them in the bar! This would be an excellent hotel to visit Bournemouth and probably in the week would not have stag/hen parties.

Stayed for one night, and it was fine.
Nice staff, spacious room, and great nights sleep.
Only downside, the floorboards were very very creaky, and you could hear every movement from other rooms.
But would stay again.

Service was fantastic, from booking a room over the phone to the day of departure, bar service and breakfast all great. Staff really helpful. The room was clean and modern however it was so hot even with the windows wide open. It was sweltering hot all night, we slept with nothing over us, no duvet! In fact the whole hotel was really hot throughout, nightmare in the summer. Apart from that would recommend just ask for a fan!!

Stayed for a 4 night trip with Alfa (but it is not one of their Liesureplex ones).Buffet breakfast very good, evening meal good ,but for some strange reason they want you to pay £3.50 extra for the cheese and biscuits if you dont want a sweet.Staff friendly, room a bit dated but good , very clean.Unfortunately the floorboards creaked with every step in the room (and all the rooms local to ours).Didnt like Bournemouth though.

Room Tip: No rooms have a view but the ones near the front noisy
