We had an excellent experience during our vacation in June this year. Easy check in, lovely receptionist. The room was very spacious and clean, and the bathroom had a bathtub and power shower. The King sized bed was excellent, the WiFi was great. TV with a wide selection of channels and the phone in the room were handy. We had... More

We have used this hotel twice now in 2 years as a base for Download festival and it basically does what it says on the tin. The room we were given this time was at the front of the hotel and although it was on the ground floor right near reception and facing the main road it was really quiet... More

I stayed here with my sister and parents for one night to attend a family party in nearby Market Harborough. The hotel is situated just off the A6 along country road with the town of Desborough a drive away. We felt that accommodation and facilities should have been at least comparable to Premier Inn and Travel Lodge standards as it... More

I needed to spend two nights in the area, and of the three possible establishments this was the most convenient, and, marginally, the best value. I booked by phone, and the recepionist had a very friendly manner. She was also on duty at my arrival, and turned out probably to be manager. My room was spacious - more than needed... More

Take serious note of the review written by Gary of Shrewsbury - this is a very well written, unbiased, truthful guide of this establishment. I do believe we may have observed Gary of Shrewsbury's actual reception and restaurant debacles and we certainly experienced much the same, in particular those guests ordering from a menu. I was led to believe by... More

I stay in a lot of hotels of all types from Premier Inn to 5 Star business hotels. In all of my hundreds of nights in various qualities of hotel this particular hotel will stand out as a particular highlight but for the wrong reasons. First the positives - this a former Travelodge and the room we had was clean... More

We booked 15 rooms for a wedding, and paid large deposit. 2 months before the wedding we went to have a look and found the rooms to be sub standard and not as they appear on the website. The owner/manager Paul was also extremely rude when we were introduced to him. After advising we would like a refund 2 months... More

The plus points...The TravelPlaza is clean. The staff are very friendly. It's cheaper than a Travelodge. The downsides...Rooms are as was when it was first opened, it's not near anything except an Indian restaurant (towns are c10 min drive). It reminds me of cheap motels in the states. Its pretty much a business hotel with workmen or business people passing... More
