I stayed in this Travelodge for 6 nights in July 2014. The location, staff & room generally were excellent. The hotel had been refurbished & was in keeping with the higher standard of rooms in this chain. I stay in Travelodges regularly. Under any other circumstances, this Travelodge would have earned 5 stars.
However the temperature in the room was stiflingly hot. As soon as I checked in, the staff warned me & offered me a fan. I havent needed one before but within a couple of hours, I took them up on their offer.The outside temperature was not excessively hot and very little direct sun hit the room. The fan made a slight difference, without it I would have checked out of the hotel & sacrificed my pre payment. To give an indication of the heat, I had a bar of chocolate with me overnight and it melted...even with the fan on all night.
I would stay in this hotel again but never in the summer months unless they install air conditioning. I would have happily paid a few pounds a night extra for this. The staff were very sympathetic & helpful, I cant fault them. They said it was an ongoing problem with this hotel.
Another issue was once either the window was open or the fan was on, you couldn't hear the TV. The volume was set too low at its highest setting. I recently stayed in another Travelodge(Kew Bridge) during very hot weather, much hotter than my stay in Liverpool. There was a fan in the room when I arrived and whilst the hot was hot, it was bearable. The fan kept me cool. Plus when the fan was on, the TV volume setting was fine, much higher, and I had no problem hearing it.
