The Rivington Lodge costs about €45 per night so when people say it is cheap.....it is not that cheap. A comfy room in a B&B would be the same or less. Anyway. The room was ok except for a strong smell of damp in the bathroom. It was also quite a large room which added emphasis to the fact that... More

Dirty, even the towels, the hotel was by the motorway and the windows wouldn't close properly so it was noisy too. Due to a problem in Lancastershire, water couldn't be drunk but only did we find out by eating at the fast food restaurant, we had to get the keys from the Spar but the girl didn't bother to tell...

I opted for an overnight stay at Rivington Lodge purely on price - it was by far the cheapest motorway lodging en route. I soon discovered there was a reason it was so cheap. The bedroom was adequate. The bed was comfortable and clean. An effort had been made to clean the room but it had only been given a... More

We had booked one night in here, and from the moment we got here it was awful. Firstly the fire alarm for the whole building showed a fault and was not working, the security lock on the door was blocked by cello tape so anyone could have access to the building. We then walked down the corridors to the stench... More

Rivington Lodge looks a bit run-down and tired. It is an old Travel Lodge. Checking in at the Spar is not a big problem and access is by key card. Its quick and easy. For £30 you get a spacious room. It's clean and warm. There is no traffic noise from the M61. The bed is comfy. The shower is... More

Me, my girlfriend and her son stayed here on the second bank holiday weekend in May. Very cheap rate but we was shocked when we arrived. Had to go to the petrol station in the services to get our room key and once we got in our room, we found it to be very dusty and the bath was filthy,... More

Arrived here and as advised checked in at the spar in the services. This looks as though it was a Travelodge in the past and so the rooms are basic but what you need for a stopover. TV not got many channels or good reception. Rooms at the back seem quiet. My bin was full on arrival but overall OK... More

Arrived home from our 2 night stay at the Rivington lodge and I've got to say I've never been so happy to see my own bed! So we arrived, checked in at the spar in the services, it looked a little shabby and tired from the outside but I wasn't expecting the ritz anyway. The entrance had a very odd... More
