“2nd stay, would return ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

This was the second time I have stayed at this hotel and would definitely recommend. They are really accommodating and helpful and all for a very reasonable price. A good breakfast as well with a good choice for all.

The only downside is the walk up the hill from town but it's such a short walk and great location for the shops or beach.

Look forward to seeing you again!

I arrived half an hour early to book in, the Reception staff were very welcoming. I needed a coffee and sat in a charming lounge. Following signing in the young receptionist took my case to the room, as I'm disabled and the room was on the first floor it was not easy for me but I was offered help by all members of staff that were around. There are very few parking spaces on sight but again, the staff made sure that I was able to park. The double bedroom was extremely clean and comfortable. All in all it was a wonderful over night stay. I would recommend this TravelRest any time.

Room Tip: Just ask for what you need!

Only stayed here for one night but found the room to be clean and good value for what was charged. The room was described as a double but it did seem a little on the small side, as I was only there for one night it was fine. The lady and gentleman that checked us in were friendly and welcoming. It's also very close to the beach and walking distance to town so very convenient.

We decided to take a slow drive from Cornwall to Kent and as we hadn't been to Bournemouth for several years decided to have an overnight stop. We had never heard of the TravelRest before and booked it really becomes it seemed to get good reviews and was great value (less than £40 for a double room).
It turned out to be really close to several hotels we had stayed in during past visits to Bournemouth and only a couple of minutes walk to the beach & pier or the town centre.
We checked in no problem and had selected a 'TravelRest Double' which they call a club room, it was marginally more expensive than the basic room. It was just fine. Comfortable bed, ensuite, TV, etc. You could just about see the sea from our room (No3).
The room lacked air conditioning so we left the windows open which was fine until the hotel opposite (The Savoy) became a hive of commercial activity at about 7.15am with deliveries followed by coach movements. We thought a 7.15am delivery of foodstuffs with the vehicle parked so that the banging and clattering was outside a neighbouring hotel most inconsiderate.
If you are looking for the Hilton, then don't stay at the TravelRest. If you are looking for a great value place for a short stay, then you can do much worse.

We booked here as it looked good value. We were not disappointed. Yes, the room is a little small but it is compact and has everything you could want. We had booked to go to Guernsey from Poole so this hotel was ideally placed. It is extremely clean and the breakfast was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. We parked the car - you need to collect a ticket from the reception - and we had no need to move it again as you are so near to the beach and the lovely Bournemouth gardens. The town is just a little walk as well, about 10 - 15 mins and the Bournemouth International Centre is just a few minutes away. Ideally placed for a concert. We would definitely come here again.

Room Tip: We were in room 39 and you could see the sea through the trees - a lovely view to wake up to.

Staff not the most knowledgeable.....No chef which meant no evening meals available. However the actual location was nice. close to the beach, few little shops near by and quite easy to find. Room was great for the price I paid....Cheap and cheerful. Would stay here again!!

booked a month or so ago a family room as we were going to the bic to see a concert,we arrived with not much time before the concert started checked in and were directed to our room, we entered to find a very small room with only a double bed,we stopped at reception to explain that this was not as requested but didn't have much time before leaving we were told that people with a similar name had checked in too and there had been a mix up with this we had to go,after arriving back there was no mention of the mix up and no other rom was offered, we made do for the night but were very uncomfortable, this is the third time I have stayed here and the other times were fine, the hotel is generally clean and tidy,i hope this was a one off and if I stay again there is improvement ,
