Haven't stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms before -I was pleasantly surprised. First lets; be clear about he price as that's why Travelodge guests stay there - £29 and no extra charges for parking either. So low price and that normally means don't expect much.
But a pleasant check in from a chatty manager/receptionist, room had been done out with new bathroom, good shower, new chairs, nice bed, lovely crisp white sheets and even a flat screen Samsung TV with radio. Carpets still a bit old, furniture (bench and open wardrobe) still original and very 80's but I can live with that.
It still costs money to get wifi, but if you leave the room and pop next door to the services, all Moto services now have free wifi - so I went and enjoyed a flat white at costa and caught up with emails then.
this is never going to be luxury, we know that, it's a rubbish location as it's a motorway services, there's a whacking great electric pylon just outside so don't live there permanently, but for a night, it's fine and so good to see the rooms looking fresh again - well done travelodge - it deserves 3.5 stars really.More
