“Mixed feelings”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

This is a mixed review and here's why. The hotel is in a nice area and has recently been refurbished. Check in was busy but smooth and the room it's self was very clean and modern. The train lines run very close to the hotel so noise from there is to be expected, however the noise from the plumbing every time a toilet is flushed or tap is run from neighbouring rooms is not to be expected. At one point we thought someone was playing a clarinet and this went on until the early hours! When we checked out we did point this out to the reception staff who informed us the they were very sorry and were fully aware of the problem.... So why check people into this room? (Room #714 check in date 10th nov) I would hope that Travelodge would expect their customers to get a good nights sleep.
So feel free to contact me Travelodge management!

My son and I stayed here from Friday the 8/11 to Sunday 10/11. Our family room (no 710) was HUGE and the comfort of the mattress and pillows was wonderful. The room and bathroom was spotless, as were the corridors and lift area. The breakfast was yummy and plentiful with lots of choice of cereals followed by full English. The view from our window looked over at the Shard and was a lovely skyline at night making the room even nicer. There wasn't a single thing I could fault, it was literally 3 minutes from the tube station, a tesco express about 4 minutes and about 15 minutes walk to more restaurants and pubs. It really was lovely. I am so glad we have now found somewhere clean, comfy and great value so making future visits to the capital less hassle with knowing instantly where to book. My congratulations to all staff there.

Great, helpful staff, immaculately clean hotel room. Simple but not too basic. Fantastic shower. Only disaapointment was the difficulty of parking over the weekend and the lack of storage space. Good access to the tube.

Stayed here on Saturday night. This is definitely the best Travelodge I have stayed in. Very spacious, clean and bed was lovely and comfortable. Was greeted by a lovely clean soapy smell as soon as I entered the hotel corridor. The man on reception was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Will definitely come here when we next go to London. Very handy as almost throwing distance from the tube station too!

I had stayed at this hotel when working in Southwark last year and was so impressed that I decided to opt for this option for a family short break in London. The hotel is what you would expect of a Traveldoge - clean and functional. The rooms aren't huge but absolutely fine and definitely a better size than other rooms I've stayed in in central London in the past. When I last stayed there, I enjoyed a good price for the room but this time, I suffered from the usual half term price hike. Nevertheless, the hotel was great. The location in Southwark a short walk from South Bank, the Tate Modern, Globe Theatre, Millennium Bridge, St. Paul Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Borough Market etc, and made it an ideal location (we used public transport far less often than anticipated - even when touring the West End! - having good walking weather helped of course!). We booked two rooms, one for me & wife and other for the three children (aged 22,18 & 11). Both rooms were good and ours enjoyed a view of St Paul Cathedral. The windows didn't open and it might have been nice if they did, but air-con was fine. Otherwise, no more no less than you'd expect of a Travelodge. Location is everything! We didn't eat brekfast at hotel but enjoyed a coffee and bagel/croissant in the small Union Theatre cafe a few doors down (5 people = £12!!) or Carlo's, right next door. We're busy planning our next break in London and all agreed that we stay here again.

We stayed here for five nights from 23rd-28th October and was recommended by a friend. Was really pleased with the service and check in was really quick and efficient. On checking in to our room however we was a bit disappointed to have a view of the train tracks however on speaking to reception they couldn't do enough for us and offered us a different room however we did decide to stay in the first room as we wasn't going to be in there much. I have to say even though we was next to the train tracks we didn't hear a thing at all and we both had a really peaceful sleep. The mattresses are extremely comfortable. The food was ok and good value for money. Short walk to southwark tube station and convenience store next door should you need anything urgently. Only downside was that the breakfast room got full very quickly at peak times. Otherwise would defiantly stay again.

What can I say great food(it can take up to an hour at busy times for food but staff are apologetic and upfront)Rooms are clean but you can hear a constant faint rumble of the underground at night.Great staff, all are very happy and helpful
