I stayed at the Travelodge Hartlepool Marina for two nights for the purposes of attending a friend's wedding. When we arrived the Receptionist was very friendly. The reception area is very basic with just one desk holding leaflets regarding breakfast options and a display stand for local information leaflets. However, what else do you really need from a reception? We were advised that as this is a new hotel they have not yet completed the breakfast room but that we could purchase a breakfast bag option. We chose to decline this offer as there was a KFC next door to the hotel as well as a Brewyers Fayre pub a 2 minute walk away.
Our hotel room was very clean and tidy and had all of the usual travelodge tea/coffee making facilities. There was plenty of room for both myself, my Husband and our 4 year old Son to move around without having to squeeze past each other. The room also had a view over the marina which my son enjoyed as he could sit on the (very large) window sill and watch the boats that were currently docked.
The location was extremely handy for the wedding venue which was the Marina, as this is less than a minute's walk from the hotel, passed the Bingo Hall.
I had noted that other reviews had complained about the noise levels during the night but this was not something that we had experienced. The hotel is also located about a 10 minute walk from the main centre but just far enough away to avoid the noises from the centre.
One negative that I would point out is the car park becomes very messy from people who have visited the KFC, used the Travelodge car park and not placed their rubbish in the bins. Having worked at a Travelodge for a brief period of time as Night Receptionist I was surprised that the cleaning of the carpark was not part of the night staff duties as it had been during my brief employment with them.
All in all, the hotel was very nice with the staff being very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
