Stayed at this travelodge for 1 night. On arrival staff was friendly and chatty, asked about my day which made me feel like home. Was given a choice between floors - new! Great idea! Clean rooms, comfortable beds ... very quiet :-) Will recommend :-)

Generally the hotel was nice, however two issues, one was the toilet was not flushed when I arrived and the other was that the windows were very very noisy from the wind. I have scored down due to these issues, however on a non windy day and a clean toilet would have been scoring 5 star

Couldn't get anything right. Wrong room type, room not cleaned. Noisy guests not controlled by staff. When staff were asked to rectify the room cleaning they did nothing. Would not recommend this hotel to anybody.

This has to be one of the cleanest Travelodge's I have stayed in, admittedly it did have some cobwebs hanging down from the corners but the bed linen/bathroom etc were all clean. We saw the same female member of staff on the desk throughout our visit, and she was happy and polite on each occasion.

If you stay on the ground floor, it is unsecure. This is not a new problem, I've been staying there a couple of years. No staff seem too be bothered and I have had people walk "off the street"and knock on my door
