The Arriva is handy for Kings Cross and thats its most redeeming quality, that and the fact that the staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel stuck me as clean but certainly not spotless and not as clean as I would have liked. It needs some money spending on the decor and someone with a steady hand to go round the edges . The average 10yr old could decorate better. We had a room at the back of the hotel over-looking mud ... perhaps they could do something with the mud and weed patch to the back of the hotel?
The shower room was tiny, but had seen better days the manufactures stickers were still on the basin and pedestal which was old.. the taps need new washers and a good clean round the bottom. Most of the floor tiles were cracked, but seem to have been filled with grout so were probably sealed however the shower was grim. There was plenty of hot water and the shower had an excellent flow.
The breakfast room was located downstairs and there was an unpleasant and indescribable smell in the hall outside the room. Continental breakfast consisted of choice of cocoa pops or cornflakes, brown or white bread for toast, lots of jams and butter, instant coffee (yuck), yogurts and some questionable looking cheese and ham.
All in all, next time I book a travelodge, it will be worth the extra money.
