After a long shift and drive, my colleague and I arrived at this particular Travel Lodge quite hungry and weary and in much need of a good meal & rest.
Instead we found ourselves discussing, in the Foyer for around half an hour, and trying to persuade the young girl on the reception that we required two decent single beds in the room and not the one double bed. She just kept asserting that a family room had been booked and NOT a twin room. (Our company always book a twin room.) She stated that there was 2 makeshift type camp beds under the double bed. There were indeed two small, basic camp beds under the double - but they were totally unsuitable as there was NO single mattress in the room and even no sheets and bedding. Sleeping on a bed base would be detrimental to your back and would only afford a poor night of uncomfortable sleep.
The receptionist claimed that the room was suitable for three workmen.
To prove her point she asked two passing workmen guests if they were satisfied with their room. They told her categorically they were indeed NOT!
She then changed her tune and gave us a Disabled room which had two single beds joined together. Even though we are both strict heterosexuals and felt uncomfortable with this proposed solution, we decided, due to our hunger and tiredness, it was the less of the two evils.
Why couldn't the receptionist have done this in the first place? But more essentially we should simply have been given 2 single beds.
