I'm really struggling to rate this hotel. Once inside the building it's as good as Travel Lodges get. It's basic but clean and tidy, that's what TLs are about. You get tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and the usual free 30 min per day wifi. It's in a central location, a short walk from the railway station and a bow shot from the Scott monument.
The staff are most helpful and polite, I can't fault them in any way.
So why the loss of a star? Well Muese Lane looks like something from a 1970s San Francisco TV car chase. It's full of dumpsters, litter, graffiti and unidentified liquids falling from above or trickling from smelly doorways. In short its rank.....and yet nothing to do with the Travel Lodge, it's their neighbours who are the culprits. I feel bad for TL really. If they could organise an entrance from the other streets they'd transform the hotel.
Would I stay again? Possibly....but only if I got a good deal on the room. As a side note, I can't believe Meuse lane is allowed to become quite so disgusting. The surrounding premises need to clean up their act. More
