“Fab staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We were forced to book a last minute overnight stay in Bournemouth and we didn't want to spend silly money when we were there for such a short stay and out before 7am in the morning. I wasn't very optimistic and just hoped for clean. What we got was a very warm welcome from a team of young staff (a lot I suspect were students from the university). They were enthusiastic and helpful and quite at odds with the very average surroundings. The bar facilities were made available at all times and, although we didn't use the facility, it seemed well attended by others if a little over bright (more ambient lighting perhaps???) They couldn't guarantee the parking but were full of helpful alternative parking advice.
The beds were clean and comfortable, the room clean and the towels clean but a bit threadbare. The bathroom not so clean and the shower curtain was trailing in the bath and a bit of a trip hazard.

The room was very hot but the window did open which is more than we have experienced in more expensive establishments. I did see someone asking for a fan in the Reception and this was produced with a smile by the staff so there was that option.

So, only down points were ....... the door paint work which was very close to the toilet had some very ominous brown stains and the plug in the sink could have done with some serious bleaching. Also, the kettle was black on the outside! A wipe with a cloth would have made all the difference.

However, we paid such a small sum for the room I think it was excellent value for money and I am sure if I had brought these problems out to the staff they would have dealt with them with a smile.

Oh, they also arranged for breakfast to be laid on extra early as they knew most of the guests would have to be out before 8 am for the function!

Room Tip: grab a fan from reception if its hot outside!

Stayed here for one night recently.

Bedroom one of the new refurbished ones that Travelodge are rolling out - good

Car Park - cramped - not good downstairs if your car is larger than average.

Service - good

What you'd expect from a Travelodge

Room Tip: Only stayed in the one room Overlooked the upper level of the car park - ok

As you may expect, this Travelodge is easy to find and has a good position. Underground parking is a boon and a road at the back of the hotel leads eventually to the seafront and the Boscombe Chine. The room was a good size and the new "dreamer" bed gave a comfortable night's sleep. Breakfast had a good choice of cereals, a Full English buffet (scrambled egg) that was properly cooked and croissants and preserves, plus a toast machine. Good value. On the downside, the soap dispensers in the room were empty and the remote control was missing. Dirty tables in the dining area could have been cleared up more quickly and the common parts had not been hoovered by 9 am when we came down for breakfast. There seemed to be more small bits of rubbish in the lifts and hallway than one would expect. Our room was not made up one day but it is unclear whether this was a genuine mistake. The reception staff were helpful and did their best to make the stay pleasant. The small irritations mentioned did not detract from what was in effect an enjoyable stay.

Rooms very hot despite it being only 18 to 20o daytime - had window open and fan going all night but room so hot. Parking a nightmare - o.k. if you travel on a motorbike or have a car no bigger than a smart car, Position of hotel ideal for Poole Ferry Crossing to Channel islands or France - only 7 miles away. also ideal for touring New Forrest etc..,,

We stayed here in May for 1 night and it was clean with a comfortable bed.We had pizza for dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and they were both poor.I would stay here again because of the good price but eat elsewhere.

booked on line with ease, far better than we expected, the place had recently been repainted and was well presented, staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were good and the only down side was all the plates were cold and no one likes cold beans. The other thing is you have to pay for parking only £3.00 for 24 hours we had no problem parking but its a small car park and may be difficult when busy. overall a great stay with easy access to Bournemouth town centre would highly recommend.
