Sat proudly in Bournemouth’s popular West Cliff district, a mere 100 metres from the sand and a beachside stroll from the town centre shops and restaurants, the TravelRest hotel (formerly the Kiwi) occupies an enviable position. This is a popular, affordable place to stay for visitors coming to enjoy a show at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) or looking for a clean and comfortable base from which to explore the town’s many attractions.
A comfortable night’s stay
With 45 bedrooms – double, twins, standard and family (one single and one double bed, cots also available) – and equipped to cater for football fans or party groups.
Family rooms provide a double and a single room and cots are also available on request. All bedrooms offer an ensuite bath or shower room complete with complimentary luxury toiletries and come with tea and coffee making facilities, a flat screen television/DVD player with Freeview channels, iPod docking station and a TravelRest refreshments tray to help you feel at home.
Attention to detail
Free WiFi is available in all bedrooms and throughout the hotel – ideal if you’re here on business, on an extended stay as a long-term contractor or in need to entertain your young family! There is also an individual workspace in the rooms, where you could set up the laptop or organise your itinerary. 25 of the bedrooms have been recently refurbished to the smart, clean and comfortable TravelRest standard while the remaining 20 are traditionally furnished budget rooms, some offering those coveted sea views of Bournemouth’s world-famous beach and seafront.
The standard check-in time at the TravelRest is from 2pm and you can check-out any time until 11am. If you would like to check in early or depart a little later, you can extend your check-in to midday or check-out to 1pm for an additional fee of £10 per room. If you need assistance (or you want to order a pizza!) at any time during your stay, the Reception desk is manned 24 hours a day.
Bed and breakfast
Standard board at the TravelRest is bed and breakfast, with an extensive and varied menu to tempt you out of bed in the morning!
Take your pick from the breakfast buffet featuring cheese, juice, fruit, cereals and cold meats, order a bowl of warming porridge or plump for a continental breakfast with rolls, croissants, meats, cheese and fruit.
A hearty start
If you fancy a fry-up, perhaps you’d prefer the hearty “Great TravelRest Breakfast,” or for something a little different the “TravelRest Fish Selection” will see you served up some haddock fillets or glazed kippers in no time. Highchairs are available for younger diners to join you at the breakfast table. Breakfast is served between 7:30am and 9:30am on weekdays and from 8am to 10am on Saturdays and Sundays.
Relax in The Boulevard
Breakfast is served in the hotel’s comfortable Boulevard café and bar, which serves refreshments all day in a quiet and relaxing environment. There is also a lounge area with television if you’re looking for somewhere cosy to relax or meet with friends.
If you’re staying at the TravelRest, the assumption is that you’ll likely want to explore the many restaurants and eateries both in the immediate West Cliff area and the short walk away into the main Bournemouth town centre. But if you’re caught feeling peckish, for just £8.50 the TravelRest can prepare you a Donna Italia pizza, on request, 24 hours a day!
The TravelRest provides 22 car parking spaces – free of charge – for guests on a first-come, first-served basis. You can also find plenty of alternative parking on the local roads and seafront. If you’re not driving into Bournemouth, the hotel’s central location and local transport links make it easy for you to confidently explore as far as you fancy by public transport or by car.
If you’re looking for somewhere comfortable and convenient to stay in the heart of Bournemouth, the TravelRest delivers. They’re expecting their guests for a hotel holiday expecting three meals a day and entertainment options on tap. There’s plenty of options for both right outside the doorstep so what they do is give you all the essentials for a comfortable stay. Why not book your next seaside break in Bournemouth today?
