First of all I must commend the staff who are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient.
At breakfast I overheard the lady behind the breakfast counter (Wendy?) offering to assist a woman with a baby and small child. I'm not sure what was being offered but I think it to was do with (earlier?) breakfast the next day? Travelodge should be proud of staff like this.
The hotel is new and the public areas are very bright and clean. The hotel is central for shops, restaurants and night life.
Our room on the 1st floor was also spotless. However, compared to other Travelodges where I have stayed, the bedroom was quite small. There was not a single drawer in our room. Not one drawer!! Where are you supposed to put your socks and pants? There is a open wall rail with six hangers in a corner of the room with a small shelf over. No bedside cabinets - two tiny alcove shelves in the headboard.
The shower room is small. (No bath) Sitting on the toilet, my right shoulder was against the washbasin, while my left shoulder was pressing on the toilet roll holder. The door did not have a lock. Nice big mirror with two down-lights over, so nice and bright. Instant hot water but a moderate flow for the shower and sink. (Probably economy measures)
We had two good sized bath towels but only one hand towel between two of us. No shower mat either. There were tea/coffee making facilities and a TV in our room.
Breakfast is OK. Sausage, bacon, scrambled egg, baked beans, and tomato on the hot counter. Cereals, juices, toast, muffins, toast, croissants etc.
Being on the 1st floor, I expected to hear some city noise but the soundproofing must be very good indeed. We did not hear any noise from the street or adjacent rooms either. However, our room was stuffy - and it was not a hot/sunny weekend. The windows do not open and I had to wedge open the door to the corridor with the waste bin. Aircon or some sort of airflow would have been great!
At over £200 for 2 nights I would have expected better. More room space, drawers, more choice at breakfast (mushrooms, hash browns, fried eggs!!) but I would definitely include this hotel in my search next time.
