Whether you’re coming to Bournemouth for a seaside holiday or you’re here on business, a hotel just paces from the town’s famous seafront is a real delight. The Travelodge Bournemouth Seafront is situated in the popular West Cliff side of the town centre, close to the Bournemouth International Centre, the Triangle district with its quirky cafes and bars and within a glimpse of Bournemouth’s Pier. This side of town is relatively quiet but still well serviced with restaurants, corner shops and entertainment.
Fit for a king
All the bedrooms at the Travelodge Bournemouth Seafront are doubles with a king size bed. The beds are dressed with a toasty 10.5 tog duvet and four plump pillows ideal for snuggling down into after having your fill of brisk sea air. All rooms have an en-suite with shower, a set of fresh white towels and complimentary hand, hair and body wash. Make yourself comfy by settling down in front of the television (with 17 channels including news, music and children’s programmes), or make yourself a warm drink with the in-room tea and coffee making facilities. Hairdryers, irons and cots are also available on request. If you’re travelling on business, you’ll find the desk convenient and spacious and WiFi is available in all public areas and bedrooms (30 minutes free, £3 for 24 hours).
Pets are allowed to stay at this hotel for an additional fee of £20 each. Guide dogs, hearing dogs and other disability assistance animals are exempt from this charge.
Bournemouth is brimming with places to grab a fast snack or a slap-up meal but if you want to keep it local, the Travelodge Bournemouth Seafront has an on-site restaurant and bar serving breakfast and evening meals. The Travelodge’s unlimited, all you can eat breakfast is served from 7am until 10am on weekdays and between 8am and 11am on weekends – catching the early risers keen to plant the first footsteps on the beach and those in true holiday mode not in any need to rush off.
The hotel is served by excellent public transport links and is just a short trip from the train station if you’re catching a taxi. If you’re driving, you’ll find ample spaces to park in the vicinity of the hotel including free on-road parking and a public car park on nearby Durley Road South. The hotel itself has 19 parking spaces charged at £6 for 24 hours. Blue badge holders will not be charged – but please make the reception team aware of this when you check in.

There is also the option to leave your luggage at the hotel on your last day if you want one last day at an event / walk on the sand / bite in your new favourite eatery. The Reception is manned 24/7 so you’ve always got peace of mind you have people on hand if needed.
Any hotel with ‘seafront’ in its title has a lot to live up to, but this friendly little Travelodge certainly plants you right in the heart of town.
