1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2006

I really wasn't expecting much when I booked to stay here for a night out in Newcastle. All rooms are £25 and I thought it would be like a bog standard travelodge. How wrong I was - it made a travelodge seem palatial. The hotel is mostly unstaffed, although a receptionist is available at peak times. All other times you check in by inserting your credit card into the machine. No keys are given, just a code to enter the room, pretty straightforward. However, the rooms are tiny, just enough space for a thin double bed, single bunk and a sink. The room we had was shabby, dirty and I was bitten all night by bed bugs. There are no ensuite facilities, just these strange plastic showers and basins, not a nice experience to use. Overall would pay the little extra for the travelodge luxury!
