“Long week-end in Merthyr”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

A group of us had organised a week-end's motorcycling in Wales, and had decided on the Travelodge in Merthyr as the base for the week-end. It was a good choice. The hotel had large rooms, comfortable beds, and was situated in the Leisure Village which meant there was a good choice of places to eat within easy walking distance. Two downsides: WiFi was only free for half an hour in 24 hours and the TV in the room had a very limited choice of channels. Our remote did not work very well. Why the hotel can't use Freeview for their TV service is beyond me! However, as we were never in the room for any long period, the poor TV choice wasn't really a problem.

I have stayed at many travelodges before but I must say this was my least positive experience. The staff were friendly enough and we checked in at gone midnight on the first night which they accommodated well. The room was massive, however lacked some basics such as toiletries, the plug sockets were miles from the bed which made for an interesting early morning dash to turn off the alarms and the corners of the room hadn't been vacuumed properly, it was a little dusty! The TV was potentially the smallest TV I have ever seen and the remote was temperamental. The bed and towels were all clean and fresh and the comfortable enough. The hotel was well located on the leisure park with plenty of eateries and a cinema surrounding, it was also central to all of the activities we wanted to do whilst in Wales. All in all it was a very average experience.

This was very good value for money. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from. No mug in my room or working TV remote but a passing member of staff replaced these immediately. No complaints.

A lovely spacious, clean, quiet room spoiled by one of those annoying window restrictors so you can't actually get the room cool enough to sleep. It was an airless sauna. Felt absolutely exhausted in the mornings. It was only about 18 degrees outside but the room can't have been far off 30 for much of the night, I dread to think what it would be like in properly hot weather. Will happily return in autumn / winter, but that's all.

A good hotel clean & friendly....loads of restaurants & pubs nearby within walking distance. Beautiful location surrounded by hills. Breakfast is a let down as there isnt any apart from a breakfast box...which doesnt mater as theres plenty of places to eat near by.

This is a Budget hotel, so quite basic but very clean and spacious. It seems like a new build, so everything is in good condition and the room smelt good.There was a comfy double bed with 2 fluffy pillows and 10.5 tog duvet. It had the usual kettle with tea and coffee etc and a desk with chair. Flat sceen TV on wall also.No hairdryer or iron in the room, but you just need to ask reception and they will supply you. There is a vending machine in reception and loads of leaflets of things to do in the area. This hotel is in a leisure park so there is plenty to do around - Cinema, Leisure centre, Nandos, Harvester, Mcdonalds, Frankies and Bennys, Oriental Express and Subway. Plenty of Car Parking outside hotel or around the Leisure Park. We would recommend and would stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are at the car park side.
