We booked well ahead so got a good deal on price. On arrival we asked for a quiet room and the Receptionist was very obliging and put us into a spacious,spotless room at the back of the Hotel on the 5th floor. Views south from our window were wonderful and we heard virtually no noise from the trains on either of the nights we stayed. Plenty of tea, coffee, milk, towels etc. Bed was one of the largest and most comfortable we have had - even compared to 5* hotels. Excellent location - 1minute from overground and underground train station and across the road from a bus stop. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Shops, cafes, bars, etc all within easy walking distance. A real 'find' and we shall definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel - on opposite side to train lines - are quieter. Room 508 was excell...

We found this Travelodge very handy as it was 1min from rail and underground to Victoria and the coach station. If here for a few days would be handy to get an oyster card. Found it easy to control the temp of the room ourselves. Found room very clean and tidy always had fresh towels and top ups of tea, coffee and milk when we returned on an evening. Local pubs and eating places available within walking distance if you are peckish on the way back to you room. Staff helpful with checking in and out. Little noise from station and passing traffic would definitely stay here again.

Located next to the railway station be ready for the noise of trains from early morning, that said, good value, clean, good bathroom. It absolutely met expectations, I would be happy to use again if I needed to be in the same location.

What a fabulous find. I have never stayed in a travelodge before, but I most certainly would again. Arranged a bit of a family reunion for my mum and decided to stay here as it was near where my niece lives. The staff are extremely friendly, the rooms were VERY clean, beds comfortable, and situated in a good location.

We booked two rooms but were warned we might not be together, we were right next door to one another which was brilliant and the size of the rooms was surprising.

Stayed here for just one night when we came up for a friends birthday party. It was an ideal location for us. There are bars and restaurants close by and the railway station is a minute around the corner. We found the staff very friendly and the room was very clean with a nice comfortable bed. Also there was plenty of tea and coffee in the room. We would definitely stay here again.

Its a good location for trains from Victoria (Sth Western) and the tube (Northern Line)Its quicker to tube to Victoria then train to Balham then tube all the way from Kings Cross using an Oyster card.
Hotel is around the corner on the High St.it was clean warm and maintained to to good standard.The only disappointment I had was with the night staff or lack of them when I required their assistance.My key card wouldn't work to allow me to open the main doors so I had to 'buzz' for someone.They opened up the door and then disappeared from where they came from.Trying to open the door to the rooms my card wouldn't work.There wasn't any way to get the attention of the staff ie a bell at the desk,after 5 mins pressing the front door call button someone came and the card sorted.
My room was ground floor looking out on to the street so if you had a light on all passing by are able to see in so curtains have to drawn.
Over all it was a bed and bathroom.

Room Tip: Away from the back, train lines, first floor at least for some privacy and right hand side has disab...
