Stayed a night in one of the double rooms on the first floor. Unfortunately, the experience was not good. Though the room appeared recently decorated, the basic standard of cleanliness was very poor. The duvet was seriously stained, the shower curtain covered in mould, empty containers had been left by the previous occupant, the carpet had not been hovered, etc....

We booked this hotel last minute and it cost about £60. We stayed here for 1 night as we were going to the BIC which was about a 5 minute walk away so very ideal. The hotel and room was clean but very outdated. The service provided was great tho. The negatives we have was the size of the room...

Stayed here for 1 night for a midweek concert at BIC. This is a budget B&B, you get what you pay for and on that note I would take any criticisms with a pinch of salt. Pillows - poor, mattress - poor, these things could be improved upon but would probably add to the price of the stay. Tea making...

We stayed 2 nights at TravelRest whilst visiting friends. The hotel is pleasant & clean enough although very dated and in need of refurbishment. We had a family room with one double and one single bed. The double bed was the smallest we've ever seen with even smaller covers,and very uncomfortable. We were sleeping with various limbs not in the...

A friend and I had a room there on a Saturday night in order to spend the weekend catching up. Read on the website they had some refurbished rooms and were really surprised when the cost of our room was only £39 for the night, although not including breakfast. But alas, we had an old room, in need of refurbishment,...

We stayed here 2 nights as my daughter went to look at the University there. Room was clean bathroom adequate with fresh towels left both mornings. Shower tray didn't drain very quickly so if you like long showers beware !! Rest of hotel we saw was a little old fashioned but clean nevertheless. Could do with soundproofing as some "inconsiderate"...

I stayed there for one night during a business travel. When leaving the hotel, the ocean is just 500 metres away. Within a 5 minutes walk down the hill I was in the city center. Hence, the location was pretty great - especially for someone like me who does not know Bournemouth very well and had very limited time to...

A friend and I had a night out in Bournemouth planned and although I only live in Poole booking this room actually worked out a lot cheaper than getting taxis and buses home. I wasn't expecting much for £30 but the rooms were clean and tidy with plenty of fresh towels as well as some toiletries in the bathroom. The...

On the good side an excellent position for tourism, exploring, shopping and the theatre etc. Our room and en-suite was very small, but clean and tidy, the bedside lamp did not work and the power point for the kettle was down behind the bed, but for the price paid we did not expect the Ritz. We would not book a...
