I arrived at shortly before the 3pm checking time. Receptionist did not say hello / welcome me to Travelodge. I announced who I was and was told check in was at 3pm or " I must pay £10" she couldn't store my luggage as it " was against the rules" So I waited in the lobby until 3pm. Ok, it is only £10 however receptionist more focused on revenue than greeting her guests. Had I checked in at 11am I would have paid the money but an hour before when they have rooms available ? Room was large, double bed very comfortable & linen and duvet excellent. Towels fluffy. I had read previous reviews so knew that Travelodge do not place shampoo etc in room. I always take my own anyway. There is a very small bar of cheap soap that breaks up when you wash your hands. Only half a toilet roll so clearly been used by previous guest and not replaced. Not a nice thought. There is a message on towel rail to place towels in bath / shower once used if you want replenished. I stayed 2 nights and room not serviced - I had not placed " do not disturb" on door, so I returned late to towels still in wet shower and toilet tissue depleted. Bed un made . No telephone in room to contact reception / housekeeping. I had paid for breakfast on line. £7.95 did not represent value for money. Orange juice watery, no fresh milk to use in your tea / coffee ( UHT creamers , same as you get in your room are offered) !! I had one bite of the sausage - best avoid.. Very cheap. I opted to go to local cafe restaurant the following morning for a tasty breakfast. Checkout very friendly and warm by a different receptionist. A real shame the welcome was not as enthusiastic. I would strongly suggest you book local guest houses / bed and breakfasts that offer far better value for money and you'll get a warmer welcome. They certainly won't be asking for £10 to check in an hour early and they will store luggage, provide toiletries in room and clean room every day. And quality of breakfast probably a lot better and included in the price. My lesson learnt.
