Thanks for the tip off!

Is this the end of the £9 sales? :-(

Anyway heat added, will be there looking for a cheap break away!

Good deal but good luck getting consecutive days at the cheap price

Managed to get 4 nights in edinburgh for £9 a night last time they did a deal after lots of searching

cool, need to book some rooms!

Booking period INCLUDES easter weekend.

Hot - but balls to sitting up at 4AM to try and get one again to find theyve all gone.

If you are online at 4am you can hoover up the rooms no probs. Just don't try to logon at 6am!

is it me or have they moved fforward this release date? Certainly earlier than last year.

I think that Travelodge are in a bit of financial trouble. Their offers come earlier and earlier.

I think that competition from other hotel chains doing offers is causing problems for them.

AMO

We should start listing the Travelodges we have stayed at in the past and if they are crap or gold.

I'll start. The London Royal Scot Travelodge near Kings Cross. Hope your vaccines are up to date. I don't think there are enough bad words in the dictionary to describe this location and its staff.

Oh great. Spending hours sifting through the crap rooms in run down areas of the country. Then having to read all the bragging posts from people who have booked hundreds of rooms for all over the country and patronise those of us that can't even get on the site by suggesting that we should be grateful for a one night Sunday booking in Rosyton Vasey.

Excellent!

Would anyone care to comment what they do about food? I know thy do £7.50 meals - but ideally would want to know if they supply a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities (Pot Noodle!!) or if there is a simple directory of cheat eats near their locations. Bit much to ask I know, but can be worth planning!

No fridge,but Kettle,tea and coffee supplied.Depends where the lodge is situated,but in my experience,city centre lodges have always been handily placed for cheap eateries.York travelodge and Sunderland are adjacent to Wetherspoons.
Manchester,Sheffield,Leeds and Newcastle are about half a mile to a wetherspoons

Birmingham Fort Dunlop is pretty reasonable with bar and food onsite (although they never put the extra bedding out for the pull out bed!) :thumbsup:
Birmingham Central is ok - friendly staff but only "breakfast in a bag" - plenty of eateries nerby though.:whistling:
Leamington Spa (former Regent Hotel) is excellent with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and rooms we have been in are a very good size.:thumbsup:
Slough was ok - bar and restaurant onsite, but it was a hell of a treck from the nearest parking through the shopping precinct:roll:

Good for taking the kids out for a night anyway!

i think they still rely on a pretty high no-show rate on these cheap rooms. I for one use them for work so my no-show rate is about 30%. I think the sales also give them a pretty good boost on sales of more expensive rooms as people use them to fill in the gaps between the cheapest rooms etc.

In terms of Travelodges in general, try and find a purpose built one, not a conversion. The purpose built ones as well as being modern have much better sounds proofing. You can work out which is which from the photos usually. They also don't have a/c so can be flipping boiling on a hot summers day. Make sure you pack your own toiletries as all you tend to get is a bar of soap. You may even want to bring your own towel as their's are normally rubbish. As for food, in general you will be ok as city centre ones normally have plenty of stuff around and the out of town one's usually share a site with a Little Chef or a pub. That said, check first as i saw a new one in Caterham the other day that seemed to have nothing at all within walking distance. On that subject, if you are on a main road, ask for a room at the back as road noise can be a big isue.

It's actually a lot worse than that, as seasoned Travelodgers will know. The windows can only be opened about 5cms, so from April to October the rooms can get stiflingly hot, with no way of cooling them down.

I've tried to persuade their Customer Service people that they should provide keys to the window locks for anyone wanting one, but they won't budge on the issue. Usual stuff - Health & Safety.

We won't now use any Travelodge in the summer months - they're just too ****** hot to tolerate. :x

always, always, always book around Wetherspoons! :thumbsup:

But also have had good food in Cafe Rouge and Bella Italia's but you need to do a bit of homework first if you're just wanting to get away for a night or two as a treat rather than neccessity

well I'll be up for work, so ready to book some rooms :thumbsup:

I hope will find rooms this time.

Be there at 4am my friend and don't complain if you're not :roll:

Hmmm... Its just not the same as a good ol' £9 sale. The site isn't even dying on its ****..

Just booked two family rooms in London for the weekend for £72 :-D

voted hot, booked 2 nights in london in January for £24

Just booked the entire Half Term in Snowdonia national park, two rooms for each night, seven nights at £12 and five at £19. Had to do two separate transactions (we wanted to move around a bit so needed more than one booking - the basket won't let you do more than two hotels with two rooms in each), so £4 extra for the credit card (I don't use a debit card on the internet, and besides if Travelodge go into administration before I stay I can chase the credit card company). Total of £183 for six nights for two rooms during a half term!

Voted hot - thanks OP!

-simon

So by 7am I'd booked 2 nights each in London, Bath, Cambridge and Durham for 2 of us for £96 all in.
Hot!

I got it wrong. It's 3.5% :oops:

Simon,

Which Travelodge hotel did you book for Snowdonia?

This is the quietest Travelodge sale I can remember, the website also seems remarkably stable.

i've just got back after spending 2 night at the covent garden travelodge. we stayed in the new part of the building and i can't fault it for the price. the yha is more expensive.
room was basic but clean, had kettle and tv but no fridge as i would expect from a budget hotel. breakfast cost £7.50 per adult and up to 2 kids ate free with each adult. bargain!
luggage cannot be stored after checkout so i just checked my case into the secure luggage store at the nearest main train station. this cost £8 and was no problem at all.
i have 3 kids and found this to be a great budget break for me and the kids.

£12 if you wanna stay in a motorway service station . York central is £70 saturdays whatever.
