I had booked a family room ,as we were 2 friends sharing and we didn't want a double bed .On arrival we got shown to a room with just a double bed .So we went back to reception and the woman told me I should have ticked twin - or that there was "some " option I should have ticked .Previously a family room was a double bed and a sofa bed ??? anyway , there was a roll away bed under the double mattress and I took the small bed .It was comfy enough .
We only had 2 towels between us !! there was one hand towel , and one bath towel .This seems a bit miserly for 2 people for 2 nights ! ! we had a slither of soap - that's a nod towards toiletries!! and no hair dryer .There always used to be one but now you have to ask at reception for one .
There is no way to set an alarm as there is no clock on the tv, and no phone and of course no clock.
We had 2 tea bags and 4 coffees .4 foil milks .We were told at reception you could ask for more which we did.
All in all , you know what you're getting with Travelodge .It's very clean, basic , with hot water ,a bed and a telly and it's very cheap and regardless of it being a bit sparse - it is still a bargain .You can always take toiletries , a travel hair dyer and an alarm clock .Hence they keep it cheap and you get the things that really count .There was a snack machine where water was £1.50 a bottle for 500mls - maybe pack a big bottle of your own .It did feel stripped back to basics - not even ye olde bible in the drawer at Travelodge , cos they don't have drawers either ! Just open closet space and a few open shelves .As long as you aren't fussy , Travelodge is still a good bet for your money - just without the frills !!
We ate at Little Chef once and Burger King .You get 10% off at Little Chef if you show your key , but we looked online and there was a main course and starter or desert for £10 , so we used them instead for a better saving .They were very handy .Big free car park right outside - also a big perk these days .An enjoyable visit with helpful staff .
