“Great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I stayed here as part of a hen party of 11, good sized rooms and bathroom for what we needed it for! (to get ready to go out and sleep). Beds we're very comfortable and staff friendly. Would stay again! Nearby to nice restaurants & also a few minute walk to the beach.

Thank you so much for your very generous review, which we really appreciate. We very much enjoy welcoming groups to TravelRest, especially at weekends where the Bournemouth Party atmosphere really enlivens the town.
Of course we also enjoy the quieter, family days during the week when we can offer even better value and with our great location we are ideally placed to welcome all.

Thank you again for your review.

i took the family to Bournemouth on a late booking. I was slightly dubious when I booked this hotel, as I'd stayed very close by in another hotel on a stag weekend. Indeed, most of the lower budget accommodation is found in this area, but I was pleasantly surprised by Travelrest.

The room was a good size, with one double and two single beds. The bathroom was small, with just a shower, small washhand basin and a toilet, but for one night it was fine. The beds were clean and comfortable, and the hotel was a good size, with its own bar. There is a pub on the corner about three doors down - though it can be frequented by the stag and hen parties (I know, I have been one of the members of said parties!). That said, we were not kept awake by any noise from people returning from the pubs.

The hotel is on top of the cliff, and a short walk will take you to a fantastic sea view. There is a zig zag path which takes you down to the sea - steep, but fine for buggies/pushchairs if you take your time.

All in all, a decent hotel for the price. We had no complaints.

We stayed at the Travelrest for one night only and we got what we wanted: small but clean room with basic facilities. Staff at the reception very friendly and polite. Had a bit of trouble getting hot water for the shower in the morning (old building...). Was OK for a quick rest after a day at the beach, but we would have looked for a bit more space and comfort for a long stay.

Thank you for your which we really appreciate. We are sorry the hot water was not efficient, something we have looked into, as this really should not have been the case, not least because a new hot water and heating facility was introduced to the hotel in 2012.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back to TravelRest very soon.

Did you know by booking directly through the official site here on Trip Advisor you can obtain a £5:00 voucher towards spending during your stay? So another great reason to book TravelRest official site

We used this as a stopover after getting the late ferry from Guernsey. The car park is very small but managed to find a parking place in the adjacent street. On arrival we were told to pay a extra £8 for the dogs which took me by surprise as this was not mentioned when booking online. Most b&bs weve used do not charge for dogs. The room was very clean and tidy and fresh. This hotel is very conveniently situated close to the front. The breakfast is an optional £6. 50p and is well worth it apart from the cooked breakfast you just help yourself to what you want. Good value! We would have stayed an extra night but it was fully booked.

All what you can ask for £52 mid-week IN July family room, clean and just big enough. near the beach and to the town centre 10 mines walking, the staff are friendly the only thing they said if you arrive early we'll try to accommodate you which in my case I have mentioned two weeks in advance that I'll be early but they didn't let me till 14:00 the check in time.

Room Tip: room 28 was good enough for us as small family.

Stayed here after moving from durley dean and am so glad we did, the room was 10 times better ,cleaner, brighter and much better layed out. Would definitely stay here again It is only a short walk to the beach, pier and town centre , Steep walk back to hotel but it is to nearly all hotels in Bournemouth

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 which was excellent

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of June. We arrived earlier than the suggested 2pm check in and went in to see if it was okay to park outside, the receptionist told us our room was actually ready, so we were able to unload our bags and leave them in our room. The room was relatively small, but there was enough space for the both of us. The bed was comfy. There was no air conditioning but we had two big windows so that was fine. The only thing I would say was that the shower pressure wasn't that great but that could've just been because lots of people were using showers at the same time. Overall a lovely stay. Very close to the beach, a five minute walk away! Close to the town aswell. If we come back to Bournemouth we will definitely stay here again. Staff were lovely and friendly. Thanks for a great stay :)
